Customer Service.  Solutions Law Press™ may collect information through the Solutions Law Press™ Resource or through the Customer Service Resource in order to, among other things, accurately categorize and respond to a customer’s inquiry and deliver appropriate service levels.

Cookie.  Like most Resources, Solutions Law Press™ uses cookies and web log files to track site usage.  A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer which allows Solutions Law Press™ to recognize you as a User when you return to the Solutions Law Press™ Resource using the same computer and web browser.  If your browser settings do not allow cookies, you will not be able to use the Solutions Law Press™ Resource.  Like the information you enter at registration or in your User profile, cookie and log file data is used to customize your experience on our Resource.  One type of cookie that we might use, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you have logged in to your Solutions Law Press™ account.  The next time you visit the Solutions Law Press™ Resource, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing User so you will not need to log in before using the service.  In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number) or to send a message to another User, however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie.  Additionally, if you log out of the Solutions Law Press™ Resource, you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account.  Another type of cookie, called a “session” cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the Solutions Law Press™ Resource.  Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.  We may use cookies to improve the qualify of our service by storing User preferences and tracking User trends.  In the course of serving advertisements or optimizing services to our Users, we may allow authorized third parties to place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.  Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  Unfortunately, if your browser settings do not allow cookies or you opt to refuse all cookies, you may not be able to use the Solutions Law Press™ Resource or services or certain of its features. 

Web Beacons.  From time to time, we may allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to Users.  Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms.  Solutions Law Press™ may “target” some ads or other promotions and communications to Users that fit a certain general profile – for example, “product managers in Texas” and may use personally identifiable information or other content you have provided in this process unless prohibited by law.  To deliver these ads properly, Solutions Law Press™ may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by Solutions Law Press™ so the networks may provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other Resources.  Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.  These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other Resources as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads.  Solutions Law Press™ does not provide personally identifiable information to any advertiser or any other third party.  You may opt-out of use of web beacons in Solutions Law Press™ pages that you view and of placement of a cookie by ad networks in your browser.  To opt-out, click here  and go to the “Advertising” section at the bottom and change the setting there to “No.”  If you opt-out, you may lose the potential benefit of receiving ads that are more targeted to your interests which, in turn, may limit your ability to fully realize the benefits of the Solutions Law Press™ Resources and services to build and leverage your professional network.

Log Files, IP Addresses and Information About Your Computer.  Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Solutions Law Press™ web site or other electronic Resource, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Solutions Law Press.  We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, e-mail patterns, as well as the name of your ISP.  This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us assess our communications, evaluate and plan other communications and/or services, and otherwise improve the Solutions Law Press™ Resource and other services.  The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with unrelated third parties without your permission or except when required by law.
