1. Purpose
Legal Decoder respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through compliance with this Privacy Statement and with applicable law. This Privacy Statement covers the Personal Data collection, use and disclosure practices of Legal Decoder’s websites, products and services that link to this Privacy Statement.

“Personal Data” is any information that identifies or can reasonably be used to identify a natural person.

This Privacy Statement is designed to inform you of:

your other rights with regard to your Personal Data.

This Privacy Statement complies with the Safe Harbor Principles as agreed by the United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission. Consistent with its commitment to protect personal privacy, Legal Decoder adheres to these Safe Harbor Principles, which can be found at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.

II. Scope
This Privacy Statement does not cover data from which individual persons cannot be identified, or situations in which pseudonyms are used. (The use of pseudonyms involves the replacement of names or other identifiers with substitutes, so that identification of individual persons is not possible).

III. Collection and Use of Personal Data
Legal Decoder may receive Personal Data: (1) directly from you, (2) from an affiliated company or (3) through information that Legal Decoder collects as you navigate through the website or service, including usage details, IP addresses and cookies.

IV. Disclosures/Onward Transfers of Personal Data
Legal Decoder discloses your Personal Data only to those who reasonably need to know such data for a legitimate business purpose, and Legal Decoder requires any third party to whom such disclosures are made to abide by confidentiality obligations. Absent your consent, Legal Decoder will disclose your Personal Data only to service providers who perform tasks on Legal Decoder’s behalf and their contractors, provided that such service providers or contractors either: (a) comply with the Safe Harbor principles or use another mechanism permitted by the EU Data Protection laws and the applicable laws of other countries that impose international data transfer restrictions or (b) agree to provide adequate protections for your privacy interests that are no less protective than those set out in this Privacy Statement and to use the Personal Data only for the purposes for which the third party has been engaged by Legal Decoder.

Legal Decoder will not sell, rent, give away or otherwise distribute your Personal Data to anyone except as described above. Other than the disclosures described above, Legal Decoder will disclose Personal Data only when required to do so by law, or when Legal Decoder believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Legal Decoder, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Legal Decoder website or service, and/or have supplied your email address, Legal Decoder may, where permitted by law, occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with developments regarding Legal Decoder and its products and services. If you send Legal Decoder a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), Legal Decoder reserves the right to publish it in order to help Legal Decoder clarify or respond to your request or to help Legal Decoder support other users. Legal Decoder may disclose to third parties certain aggregated information collected about you and other users, but such information will not contain any personally identifiable information and your identity will be kept anonymous.

V. Sensitive Data
“Sensitive Data” is data that pertains to a person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, income records, health, sexual orientation or alleged commission of any offense. Legal Decoder does not solicit Sensitive Data and will not disclose to any third party Sensitive Data that you have provided and will not use your Sensitive Data for any purpose other than (1) for the purpose for which you originally provided it, (2) for a purpose you later expressly consented to, or (3) where necessary to fulfill Legal Decoder’s legal obligations.
