This Privacy Notice describes how Everlaw collects, uses, processes, and discloses your personal information and what rights and choices you have with respect to your personal information. Any terms used in this Privacy Notice and not defined have the meanings given to them in Everlaw’s Customer Terms of Service.
We offer our Service to customers either directly or via a Reseller. Where we refer to our “Customers” in this Privacy Notice, we refer to customers that have entered into an agreement with us to use the Service as well as Resellers and their customers. Customer, or the applicable Reseller, is responsible for managing the Authorized Users on its account on the Service. Customer, or the applicable Reseller, is solely in control of the individual permissions on Customer’s or the applicable Reseller’s accounts, Databases, and Projects. Everlaw’s Customers are the controllers of personal information contained in their Case Materials (“Customer Data”), and Everlaw is a processor of this information. Everlaw is the controller of certain other personal information as described in this Privacy Notice (“Personal Information”).
This Privacy Notice applies to Personal Information that we collect online and offline including through: (A) all products, services, and related applications offered by Everlaw (collectively, the “Service”); (B) Everlaw.com and other Everlaw websites, including blogs, online forums, social media platforms, and the Everlaw community (collectively, the “Site”); (C) any interactions you have with, registrations for, attendance at, or participation in our events, tutorials, or webinars (collectively, “Marketing Activities”); (D) any user education session you attend; or (E) your visit to our offices, (collectively, as used in this Privacy Notice, the “Services”).
This Privacy Notice does not apply to any personal information contained in Customer Data that Everlaw processes on behalf of the Customer as a processor or “service provider” as set out in our agreement with them. A Customer using the Service (e.g. your employer or a Reseller or their customer) controls its instance of the Service and any associated Customer Data. Similarly, this Privacy Notice does not apply to any third-party applications or software accessible via the Services or that integrate with the Services or any other third party products, services, or businesses. If you have any questions about the specific settings and privacy practices of such third parties, please contact the relevant third party product, service, or business to review its privacy notice.

Advertising Cookies. These cookies allow us to serve ads on other websites that may be of interest to you. Sometimes the third parties we work with place or recognize a unique cookie or other tracking technology on your browser and may also use technology to measure and track effectiveness of ads. You can learn more about ad-serving companies and the options available to limit their collection and use of your information by visiting the websites for the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. To opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customize Google Display Network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Site or Service, you may still receive advertising content even if you opt-out of tailored advertising. In that case, the advertising content may not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of the above opt-out links and are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms. If your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out pages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt-out may no longer be effective. Additional information is available on NAI’s and DAA’s websites, available at the above links.
How Long We Keep Your Personal Information. We retain your Personal Information for different periods of time depending on what it is, how we use it, and how you configure your settings. We will either delete or anonymize Personal Information once it is no longer needed or after expiration of the applicable retention periods. If we anonymize, aggregate, or de-identify Personal Information, we may use and disclose it for any business purpose. If deletion or anonymization is not possible (e.g. because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion or anonymization is possible.
This section describes when we may disclose Personal Information:
Service Providers. We may disclose Personal Information with third party service providers who are working on our behalf (e.g. billing and payment service providers, cloud hosting and storage providers, communications providers, learning management system platforms, and analytics companies).
Affiliates. We may disclose Personal Information with our affiliates who use Personal Information as set out in this Privacy Notice.

Protection of Everlaw and Others. We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law or regulation, if we are required by law to comply with any court order or legal process or respond to any government or regulatory request, and to maintain and enforce our agreements and policies. We may also disclose your information to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Everlaw, its agents and affiliates, its users, and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, spam/malware prevention, and similar purposes.

Any Other Person with Your Consent. We may share your Personal Information with other third parties with your express consent.
How We Secure Your Information. We have adopted physical, technical, and organizational safeguards against accidental, unauthorized, or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, access, use, or processing of Personal Information we collect.
Links to Third Party Websites. We may place third party links in the Service or on our Site. When you click on a link from our Service or Site to a third party website, that website’s policies govern your activity and use. We are not responsible for the information practices of those third parties, and we encourage you to review their privacy and user policies.
Data Transfers. Everlaw is headquartered in the US and has offices, employees, and service providers who operate around the globe. To provide the Service, Everlaw may store, process, and transmit Personal Information to countries outside of your location, including but not limited to the US, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. Data may be accessible to law enforcement and national security authorities under certain circumstances.
Depending on your location, when we transfer your Personal Information we rely on certain legal mechanisms to safeguard the transfer, as required by law. If you are located in the EEA, UK, or Switzerland, this may include transferring your Personal Information to adequate countries or using the European Commission’s SCCs and UK addendum and any additional safeguards as necessary.
Depending on your location, you may have statutory rights in and to your Personal Information. These may include the right to request access, as well as seek to update, delete, or correct your Personal Information. If you are a user of the Service, you can update, correct, or modify your Account Information by contacting us at email@example.com, or for certain Account Information at any time by logging into your Everlaw account. Additionally, you may have the right to object to our processing of your Personal Information, ask us to restrict the processing of your Personal Information, or request portability of your Personal Information. If we rely on your consent to collect and use your Personal Information, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing based on your consent we conducted before you withdraw consent.
For all requests regarding your Personal Information or questions about your rights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We respond to all requests in accordance with Applicable Privacy Law, and we may need to verify your identity before we can respond to your request. Depending on your request, we may ask for information such as your name, and an email address that you have used with us, and/or details, about your most recent interaction with us. If Everlaw cannot complete your request, we will inform you unless legally prohibited to do so. Everlaw will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under applicable law.
Marketing Communications. We will process your Personal Information for marketing purposes according to your preferences (e.g. via mail, email, text, or phone). You may opt-out of receiving marketing from us by checking the relevant box on a consent form; by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in an email; or by emailing us at email@example.com. If you are a user of our Service and opt-out from receiving marketing from us, we may still send you non-promotional communications (e.g. security alerts and notices related to your account).
Lodging a Complaint. If you have any concerns about how we handle your Personal Information, or if you believe we have not complied with this Privacy Notice or Applicable Privacy Law, please contact us in the first instance at firstname.lastname@example.org or refer to the contact details below.

If you are not satisfied with our response, you have the right to appeal to Everlaw or complain to the relevant data protection authority in your jurisdiction.

If we make updates that materially alter your privacy rights, we will provide additional notice, such as notifying you by email or posting a notice in the Service prior to the change becoming effective. Your continued access or use of our Services will signify acceptance of the terms of the updated Privacy Notice.

Providing, updating, maintaining, and protecting our Services;
Communicating to you and responding to your requests, comments, and questions;
Providing customer and technical support;
Transactional and administrative matters;

Support Data; and
Inferences drawn from any of the above information categories.
Advertising Preferences. The CCPA also requires businesses that “share” Personal Information to provide an opt-out from such sharing. Under the CCPA, “sharing” is defined as the targeting of advertising to a consumer based on that consumer’s Personal Information obtained from the consumer’s activity across websites. We “share” information for these purposes to provide more relevant and tailored advertising to you regarding our Services. Everlaw shares, and has shared in the past 12 months, the following categories of Personal Information for targeted advertising with:
Marketing and Advertising Partners
Internet usage information;
Inferences drawn from the above information.
Right to Know and to Delete. California residents may have the right to request information about a business’s collection, use, disclosure, sharing, or sale of their Personal Information. You may be permitted to request that we:
Provide you the categories of Personal Information we have collected or disclosed about you; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting, “selling,” or “sharing” your Personal Information; the categories of third parties to whom we disclose or “sell,” or with whom we “share,” Personal Information; and the categories of Personal Information we “sell.”
Provide access to and/or a copy of certain information we hold about you.
Delete certain information we have about you.
Correct inaccurate Personal Information that we maintain about you.
You may have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you, if any. You also have the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising certain of your rights. Certain information may be exempt from such requests under applicable law. We need certain types of information so that we can provide our Services to you. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our Services.
If you wish to exercise any of your rights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1.844.383.7529 . California residents can use “authorized agents” to make requests to know and requests for deletion. We will take steps both to verify the identity of the person seeking to exercise their rights, and to verify that your agent has been authorized to make a request on your behalf.
Sale of Personal Information and the Right to Opt-out. We may disclose Personal Information with third parties or allow them to collect Personal Information from our Site or Service if those third parties are authorized service providers or business partners who have agreed to our contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of such Personal Information or if you use our Service to interact with third parties or direct us to disclose your Personal Information to third parties. As described under our Cookie Notice, we may disclose or otherwise make available certain Device Information with third parties in order to understand how you interact with our Site. Such information sharing may be considered a “sale” / “sharing” under California law. If you are a California resident, you can opt-out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information by submitting a request at email@example.com or, in certain states, including California, by broadcasting an Opt-Out Preference Signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (GPC) on the browsers and/or browser extensions that support such a signal. Any opt-out preferences you have exercised through these methods will only apply to the specific device/browser on which you made them. Your request to opt-out of sale/sharing will be linked to your browser identifier only and not linked to any account information because the connection between your browser and the account is not known to us. If you would like us to make the connection between your browser and your customer account when you send the opt-out of sale/sharing of your Personal Information request or GPC signal, and you have not yet opted-out of sale or sharing your Personal Information, we recommend you submit your Do Not Sell or Share Personal Information request at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not knowingly “sell” or “share” the Personal Information of consumers under 16 years of age.
Sensitive Personal Information. If we process sensitive Personal Information collected about you, we do so for the following purposes:
Maintain the quality and safety of our Services;
Provide and improve our Services;
Detect any potential security incidents; and
Maintain customers’ accounts and provide customer service.
We may also process this sensitive Personal Information as needed to help ensure people’s physical safety and as required by applicable law. We do not use or disclose sensitive Personal Information other than for purposes for which you cannot opt-out under the CCPA.
Retention of Your Personal Information. Please see the How Long We Keep Your Personal Information section above.
California Do Not Track : We do not respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals, as the internet industry is currently still working on Do Not Track standards, implementations, and solutions. Please note that Do Not Track is a different privacy mechanism than the Global Privacy Control browser choice referenced above.
