What Information Do We Collect?
Findlawyer collects personal information in two ways - through information provided directly from our users and information collected through web server logs.
Information Supplied by Our Users
Findlawyer collects personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, occupation or work address and telephone number.

Findlawyer does not collect any of this unique information about you except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information.

By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the service would include the findlawyer lawyer directory and blogs.
