Your privacy is important to us. Consensys, Inc. (“we” or “us”) is committed to protecting the privacy, confidentiality, and security of your information by complying with the requirements under applicable laws and regulations. We are committed to ensuring that all our employees, service providers, and agents uphold these obligations.
Your privacy is important to us. When running OpenLaw, we follow a few fundamental principles:
We may collect a variety of PII, including:
We may also collect a variety of Non-PII, including various analytics data, such as:
If you create an account or use the services provided by OpenLaw, we may request certain PII. This may include contact information such as your full name, organization, email address, phone number, billing address and account login information. In addition, we may collect information regarding other accounts you choose to link with OpenLaw (e.g., Metamask, Google, etc.).
We, or companies that provide services on our behalf, may also collect certain financial information from you, such as your payment method (which may include a valid credit card number, type, expiration date, or other financial information). By making a purchase through OpenLaw, you give us consent to use and provide your financial information as we consider necessary to process the transaction.
In order to improve and grow OpenLaw, we also use analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to automatically collect information about user and visitor usage (collectively, “Analytics Tools”). These Analytics Tools collect data such as how often you visit OpenLaw, what areas of the Site you visit, and what other sites or services you used prior to using OpenLaw.
Analytics Tools generally operate differently. For example, Google Analytics only collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit OpenLaw, not your name or other identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your computer to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. As of right now, we only use the information we get from Analytics Tools to improve OpenLaw and do not combine the information collected through the use of Analytics Tools with PII. However, we reserve the right to do so in the future.
We do everything possible to make sure you have an amazing experience when using OpenLaw. If you contact us in person, by phone, email, instant message, live chat, or by some other means (either through our Site or through a Third Party Service), we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence for later reference (to help improve our Site!).
We primarily use the information we collect and store to enhance OpenLaw. Except if we sell all or a portion of our business, or as otherwise described below, we do not rent, trade, or sell your personal information.
We use personal information to create an awesome experience. Some ways we may internally use your information are to:
We may provide your personal information to our employees, contractors, agents, service providers, and designees (collectively, “Agents”) to enable them to perform certain services for us exclusively, including:
We may disclose your PII as required by law, such as in response to a subpoena, a lawful request by a public authority, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a legal request.
Once you sign up for an account, we provide you with various options that enable you to delete or revise your personal information. You can change, alter, or amend personal information that you provide to us by visiting your account settings at www.openlaw.io. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you decide you don’t want to receive email or other mail from us, you can select the “opt out” provision in our communications or in your profile settings to unsubscribe. Unsubscribing will stop you from receiving most types of communication, but it may not apply to emails about orders or transactions you place through the Site or to respond to your specific request.
If you delete your account or request that your information be deleted, we still may retain some personal information that you have provided to us in order to maintain OpenLaw or to comply with relevant laws.
We are committed to making sure your information is protected and have selected third-party vendors, including Stripe and Metamask, that help keep your personal information safe. Unfortunately, we do not control these third parties and therefore cannot guarantee complete security.
We do employ several physical and electronic safeguards to keep your information safe, including encrypted user passwords and securing all connections with industry standard transport layer security.
If you log into your account on a shared computer, be sure to sign out of your account when finished. If you believe a third party has access to your account, you must let us know as soon as possible.
Even with all these precautions, we cannot fully guarantee against the access, disclosure, alteration, or deletion of data through events, including but not limited to hardware or software failure or unauthorized use. Any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk.
If you have questions concerning our information practices with respect to children, or if you learn that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has used OpenLaw, created a user account, or provided us with personal information, please email us at email@example.com.
Online tracking is the collection of data about an individual’s Internet activity used to deliver targeted advertisements and for other purposes. Some web browsers (e.g., Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If an online service elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the service may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including OpenLaw, do not take action to respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

What is a Cookie?
A cookie (“Cookie”) is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used. You can find out more about each cookie by viewing our current cookie list below. We update this list periodically, so there may be additional cookies that are not yet listed. Web beacons, tags and scripts may be used in the Site or in emails to help us to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers on an individual and aggregated basis.
Some Cookies are necessary for certain uses of the Site, and without such Cookies, we would not be able to provide many services that you need to properly use the Site.

They also include Cookies that enable us to remember your previous actions within the same browsing session and secure our Sites.
We also use functional Cookies and Cookies from third parties for analysis and marketing purposes. Functional Cookies enable certain parts of the site to work properly and your user preferences to remain known. Analysis Cookies, among other things, collect information on how visitors use our Site, the content and products that users view most frequently, and the effectiveness of our third party advertising. Advertising Cookies assist in delivering ads to relevant audiences and having our ads appear at the top of search results. Cookies are either “session” Cookies which are deleted when you end your browser session, or “persistent,” which remain until their deletion by you (discussed below) or the party who served the cookie.
