Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. When you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy, it creates legal obligations on both you and Lucy Academy. By accessing and using the Website, you are acknowledging that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy and agree to be legally bound by it. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, please refrain from using the Website.

  1. The Website.

The Website is designed to provide users with a range of general information concerning (i) the services we offer; (ii) our partners, employees, representatives and their experience; (iii) the geographic and technical subject matter areas in which we practice; (iv) employment opportunities; and (v) other materials concerning Lucy Academy.

  1. The Relationship Between This Privacy Policy And Applicable Ethics Rules.

We have taken efforts to harmonize this Privacy Policy with ethics rules, and other rules that may apply to our legal practice. If a circumstance arises where applicable ethics rules conflict with this Privacy Policy, then applicable ethics rules will govern our relationship, and not the conflicting portion of this Privacy Policy.

  1. The Types Of Information You May Provide.

Information you may provide while visiting the Website might be personal information. We use the term “Personal Information” to mean any information you provide to us over the Website that could reasonably be used to identify you, including your name, address, email address, birth date, and telephone number. “Anonymous Information” is information that does not identify you, and may include statistical information concerning, for example, the pages on the Website that users visit most frequently.

  1. Our Uses Of The Information You Provide.

We use information you provide to us via the Website only as provided in this Privacy Policy. We use the Personal Information you provide via the Website only for purposes of providing you information concerning Lucy Academy and for responding to requests you may make, as permitted by the Website. We do not share your Personal Information with any third parties, except as provided in Section 6 (Disclosures to Third Parties) below.

We use your email address to send you newsletters, bulletins, announcements concerning Lucy Academy, legal developments, notifications, and other information. In addition, we may use your email address to invite you to presentations or other functions we believe may be of interest to you. You will have the ability to “opt out” of receiving these materials, as provided in Section 7 (Changing or Removing Information, Opting Out).

We use Anonymous Information to analyze the effectiveness of the Website, and for other similar purposes. In addition, from time to time, we may undertake or commission statistical and other summary analyses of the general behavior and characteristics of users of the Website, and may share Anonymous Information with third parties for this purpose. Rest assured, though, that Anonymous Information provided to third parties will not allow anyone to identify you, or determine anything personal about you. We may collect Anonymous Information through features of the software that supports the Website, through cookies, and through other means described herein.

We may automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), your computer’s name, the type and version of your web browser, referrer addresses, where the computer is routing from, and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record page views (hit counts) and other general statistical and tracking information, which will be aggregated with that of other users in order to understand how the Website is being used, and for security and monitoring purposes.

A “cookie” is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies can be used to provide you with a tailored user experience and to make it easier for you to use a website upon a future visit. We may include cookies on the Website and use them to recognize you when you return to the Website.

We may also use “pixel tags,” which are small graphic images (also known as “web beacons”, “single-pixel GIFS”, or “web bugs”) to tell us what parts of the Website have been visited, to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on the Website, and for other purposes. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format users can read, and they inform us whether emails have been opened, to help ensure that our messages are of interest to our recipients. None of this data includes Personal Information, and you can “opt out” of receiving these emails from us. If any Personal Information is collected using such tools, it will be subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

We may send email messages which use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Website. When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web browser before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine users’ interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply do not click text or graphic links in the email, or notify us in accordance with Section. 7 below.

  1. Disclosures To Third Parties.

As an exception to the policies set out in Section 5 above, we will disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your express consent if we employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf, such as maintaining the Website, providing services related to the Website, collecting information, responding to and sending electronic mail, or other functions necessary to our business. In order to obtain these services, we may need to share your Personal Information with these companies (“Site Vendors”). We will provide Site Vendors with only that information necessary to perform their duties with respect to the Website, and we do not authorize them to use your Personal Information for any other purpose. We also will reveal your Personal Information on a case-by-case basis in order to comply with applicable ethics rules or in the ordinary course of an attorney-client relationship that may be formed.

Our security systems are structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing information provided to us.

Please understand, though, that this information should not be construed in any way as giving business, legal, or other advice, or warranting as fail proof, the security of information provided by or submitted to the Website. Due to the nature of internet communications and evolving technologies, we cannot provide, and specifically disclaim, that the information provided to us will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorized access.
