We strive to keep our content and documents accurate, current and up-to date. However, because the law changes rapidly, we cannot guarantee that all of the information on the site and services is completely current. The law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and may be subject to interpretation by different courts. The law is a personal matter, and no general information or legal tool like the kind we provide can fit every circumstance. Furthermore, the legal information contained on the site and services is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area. Our site, application, and services are not intended to create any attorney-client relationship, and your use of our site, application, and services does not and will not in any circumstance create an attorney-client relationship between you and us. We are not a lawyer referral service and the sites and services and other resources and information are for personal use only.
- LAWYER SERVICES FOR USERS
Our site and services offer you several ways to identify and locate an attorney (or other legal services), including advertisements for lawyers, a searchable directory of lawyers and law firms, or our lawyer service provides information on lawyers and law firms willing to contact you with your permission (collectively, “lawyer services”). The inclusion of lawyers and law firms in the lawyer services requires only a payment by such lawyers or law firms and we make no recommendation as to any such lawyers or law firms. The decision to retain an attorney is an important one, and one that you must make carefully based on your own judgment and evaluation of that attorney. If you are using the lawyer services you should read the following terms and conditions below. If you disagree with these terms and conditions, please do not use the lawyer services.
At no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with us through the performance of any such lawyer services.
Our site and services are only one source of information among the many sources that are available to you. You may wish to consider multiple sources in order to make an informed attorney selection decision.
You understand any attorney listings or directories are provided by third parties and may contain inaccurate, incomplete or outdated information. You must independently verify the accuracy of any information you obtain from our site, application, and services.
We may refer you to a specific attorney or service. However, you are solely responsible for making a selection of an attorney or other service and determining whether the information you obtain through your use of our sites is suitable for your purposes. Any agreements regarding legal services or fees must be done outside the scope of our sites and are strictly between the user and the third party and do not involve us in any way. We do not receive any portion of any attorney’s or law firm’s fees. We are not involved in or responsible for any transactions that might occur, and we do not guarantee that such transactions will occur.
The release and security of any sensitive or confidential information transmitted by you to any attorney or service is your sole responsibility.

You must independently verify the qualifications of any such legal professionals and services.
The selection of a participating lawyer or law firm as part of the lawyer services is the result of a neutral process that involves no evaluative judgment on our part and when a lawyer or law firm is included, it does not mean that lawyer or law firm is the “best” or “right” lawyer or service for your needs or that the lawyer or law firm is otherwise preferred over other lawyers or law firms. Further, the selection of a participating lawyer of law firm as a part of the lawyer services is not based on an analysis of your potential legal problem.
We cannot perform a check for conflicts of interest between you and an attorney provided by a lawyer service.

Florida: Florida Rule of Professional Conduct 4-7.10(c) defines a lawyer referral service as “(1) any person, group of persons, association, organization, or entity that receives a fee or charge for referring or causing the direct or indirect referral of a potential client to a lawyer drawn from any specific group or panel of lawyers; or (2) any group or pooled advertising program operated by any person, group of persons, association, organization, or entity wherein the legal services advertisements utilize a common telephone number and potential clients are then referred only to lawyers or law firms participating in the group or pooled advertising program.” For purposes of the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct only (the “Florida Rules”), our sites may be deemed a lawyer referral service as defined in the Florida Rules. Rule 4-7.10(a)(10) requires that all lawyer referral services (as defined in the Florida Rules) must affirmatively state in all advertisements that it is a lawyer referral service.

New York: Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Being included on the list of participating lawyers requires only a payment and the selection of a participating lawyer from that list is the result of a neutral process that involves no evaluative judgment. When a lawyer is included from that list, it does not mean that lawyer is the “best” or “right” lawyer for your needs or that the lawyer is otherwise preferred over other lawyers. Lawyers or law firms willing to contact you with your permission as a part of our lawyer services pay an additional fee that is separate from the fee they pay for inclusion in our searchable directory of lawyers and law firms. Lawyers or law firms that do not pay this additional fee are not included in this service.

This collection includes automatically collected information, and generally does not include personal information unless you provide it through our Website or you choose to share it with us, or authorized third parties. Methods we use include:
- cookies (which may be session-based or persistent, and are typically small data files that are stored on your hard drive or in connection with your Internet browser);
- web beacons or tags (small images embedded into Websites or emails that send information about your computer, tablet, phone, or other device when you visit our Website, open an email we send to you);
- Website log files (which we tend to create automatically in connection with access to and use of our Website);
- Flash cookies or Local Stored Objects (which may be placed using Adobe Flash software—learn more about privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies here); and
- other technologies (which may be similar to or different than the methods noted above).
- INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU
We and our service providers collect Personal Information through online forms to provide certain features of the Services to you. For example, if applying for a job through the site, we may request you to fill out a form with information such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, and work experience. If you do not provide the information required to submit the forms, we may not be able to provide you with related features and Services.
In some cases, you may have the opportunity to enter into our secure forms any content that you choose. You are responsible for such content and we reserve the right to use such content as part of our Services.
B. WEB SERVER LOGS
When you access or use our Services, we may track information to administer our Services and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include, without limitation:

- Number of links you click within our Services;

C. COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS
A “cookie” is a small text file that may be transferred to your computer’s hard drive to personalize our Services for you and collect information regarding usage of our Services. Each computer is assigned a different cookie that contains a random, unique identifier. Our Services may use two different types of cookies: a “session” cookie, which is required to track a user session, for example, and which expires shortly after the session ends, and a “persistent” cookie, used to track unique visits to our sites, as well as how the user arrived at the site (for example, through an email link or from a referral link), and the type of user (patient, provider, consumer, etc.). So that users are not counted twice, this cookie can “persist” anywhere from six months to two years.
Your browser software can be set to warn you of cookies or reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie, this may disable some of the functionality of our Services and you may not be able to use certain Services. Cookies, to the best of our knowledge, cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a Website, a cookie helps the Website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases Website navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
We use Google Analytics on our Site to help us analyze the traffic on our Site. For more information on Google Analytics’ processing of Personal Information, please see http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. By using a browser plugin provided by Google, you can opt out of Google Analytics.
A “web beacon,” “clear GIF,” “web bug,” or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier that is similar in function to a cookie, but would allow us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of our Websites, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which may be stored on your computer’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on pages or screens. We may use web beacons in providing the Services.
D. GEOLOCATION DATA
We do not collect precise information (e.g., GPS data; latitude and longitude) concerning the location from which you access the Services, but we collect information on your region or postal code to help us gather information useful for improving the relevance of our content and securing our Services.
E. THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING
We may allow third party advertising companies to serve ads when you access or use our Services. These companies use non-personally identifiable information regarding your access and use of our Services and other Websites, such as pages viewed, date and time of your visit, and number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), to serve ads to you on our Services and other Websites that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to our Services, our third party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. In addition, we or other third party advertiser, may use web beacons to help manage our online advertising. This allows us or a third party advertiser to learn which banner ads bring users to our Services.

If the parties cannot mutually agree on one arbitrator, JAMS will choose the arbitrator randomly from the two remaining arbitrators. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you’re not sure what all of this means, of course please feel free to ask an attorney.
