Collection of your Personal Information
Rocket Lawyer may collect personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, physical address or telephone number. If you purchase our Services, we will collect and store your billing and credit card information. Rocket Lawyer may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your Postal Code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. Rocket Lawyer will not delete customer information for paying members. However, Rocket Lawyer reserves the right to delete customer information for members with a free account status at any time.
Information about your computer hardware and software also may be automatically collected by Rocket Lawyer. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Rocket Lawyer for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Services.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the Services, this information may be collected and used by others. Rocket Lawyer encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from our website so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Rocket Lawyer is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the websites we operate.
Use of your Personal Information
Rocket Lawyer collects and uses your personal information to operate our websites and deliver the Services you have requested. Rocket Lawyer may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Rocket Lawyer and its affiliates. Rocket Lawyer may also contact you to participate in surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Rocket Lawyer does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Rocket Lawyer may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party without your express consent. In addition, Rocket Lawyer may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. Rocket Lawyer may share your information with third parties who perform tasks required to complete a purchase transaction. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these Services, and they are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Rocket Lawyer keeps track of the pages our customers visit within our websites in order to determine what Services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within the websites we operate to users whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. Rocket Lawyer uses tracking pixels to collect information that helps us provide our Service to you. Please note that any "do not track" signals sent by your web browser or other mechanism have no effect on the collection of personally identifiable information by Rocket Lawyer. In addition, other parties who perform data analytics for Rocket Lawyer, such as Google Analytics, may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities when you use our Services. Third party affiliates of Rocket Lawyer may have different policies with respect to "do not track" signals and Rocket Lawyer makes no representations with respect to such policies.
Rocket Lawyer uses tracking to create remarketing audiences of users based on user behavior/their visits to our website. Rocket Lawyer may also target these users with custom ads based on affinities/interests, geographic and demographic signals. Rocket Lawyer only shares browser-level data through third party vendor tracking such as Google Analytics. Users can opt out of these advertising features by visiting Google or resources like the NAI consumer opt-out page. Rocket Lawyer may use email addresses to target users with custom ads through 3rd party advertising platforms. Rocket Lawyer shares customer information with third parties to perform services (advertising) on our behalf.
Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of Rocket Lawyer's business assets. In such an event, we will attempt to notify you before your personal information is transferred, but you may not have the right to opt out of any such transfer.

In order to ensure delivery of Services and for quality assurance purposes, Rocket Lawyer will have access to communications with attorneys which are transmitted through the Services (such as the Ask a Lawyer service). As a result, if you choose to communicate with an attorney through the Services, please note that any such communications between you and a participating attorney may not necessarily be treated as confidential information by the attorney or protected by the attorney-client privilege doctrine. For additional information, please read the section in our Terms of Service entitled Interactions with Attorneys on Rocket Lawyer.
