Privacy Policy

At FirmDirect.com (the "Site"), we know how visitors like you value your privacy, and we have created this privacy policy to ensure that you understand our policies and procedures, what personal information you must provide if you wish to use certain portions of the Site and, ultimately, just how we use such personal information.

Information Collected By FirmDirect.com

FirmDirect.com collects two types of information from users of this Site: personal information described below; and non-personal information such as information about traffic patterns on FirmDirect.com.

Personal Information

To access certain portions of the Site, including The Firm Believers Clubhouse, we will require you to register and select a user name and password. Some personal data, including, for example, name, age, postal address and email address, are collected during the registration process. We may then ask for additional information, including personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information such as occupation, interests and homepage URL.

How We Use Your Personal Information

FirmDirect.com uses information collected on the Site for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to, running the Site, and contacting users. FirmDirect.com may also make available to other registered users information provided by you during registration, such as your screen name. FirmDirect.com uses the information collected, including personally identifiable information, for a variety of purposes. We may use your information to communicate back to you, to update you on products, services and benefits, to personalize the Site for you, to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information, newsletters, or other information we think would be of particular interest. We will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such materials.

We may also share your personal information with our affiliates and business successors, technical consultants, third party auditors and other third parties who make our site available, enhance its functionality or provide associated services such as billing and/or who deal with you in processing your orders and/or delivering content, samples, products, services and gifts and prizes.

These third parties may also use the information to generate aggregate reports and market research or for other purposes. If you would rather not have us share this information with third parties, just notify us at optout@FirmDirect.com. Make sure you notify us for each account or e-mail address you have left with us.
