1. Introduction

Welcome. You have arrived at a website provided by Walker Advertising, LLC (“Walker Advertising,” “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) or one of our affiliates. Our mission is to bridge the gap between a law firm’s need to grow and an underserved community’s need for trustworthy legal services.

We take your privacy seriously. We provide this Privacy Policy (“Policy”) to tell you what information we collect about you, how we obtain it, how we share it, and how you may limit the ways in which we use your personal information. If you have questions about this Policy after you review it, feel free to contact us at [email protected].

2. Scope

This Policy applies when you use or access the following website or any other website or landing page operated by us that links to this Policy, including their subdomains or portals (collectively, the “Sites”), or when you otherwise provide Personal Information or interact with us online, via phone calls or other communications with our representatives or in-person:

For this Policy, “Personal Information” is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with you or your household. The definition of Personal Information does not include publicly available information from federal, state, or local government records. We refer to all the above as our “Services.” Our Services are used by people who contact us looking for legal services (“Users”), attorneys and law firms with whom we partner (“Firms”) and individuals seeking employment with us (“Employment Applicants”).

Please note that if you provide your information while interacting with our Sites or Services, we will take that as your agreement to our collection, use, and disclosure of your information as set forth in this Policy.

This Policy does not apply to any products, goods, services, websites, or content that are offered by third parties (“Third Party Services”), which are governed by their respective privacy policies.

The use of this functionality may involve the third-party sites providing information to us. For example, we might obtain information about the traffic and usage of our Sites from third parties. We might also provide links to make it easier to send a communication from the Sites, or we may use third parties to make it easier to send emails or post to social media (like a “Share” or “Forward” button). These third parties also use cookies and other tracking technologies to capture information about your interactions with us.

We also conduct research about individual attorneys at Firms from sources such as state bar associations, social media profiles and law firms.

6. When We Disclose Information

As a business, we may need to disclose your personal information to service providers outside our organization who may be assisting us with providing Services to you, as set forth in this Policy. We may also share or sell your information to third parties, as defined below, for analytics or other purposes.

To the extent permitted by law and any applicable state Code of Professional Conduct, certain nonpublic information about you may be disclosed in the following situations:

  • To comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process, including from law enforcement or other government agencies.
  • As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings either initiated by or against us, provided we disclose only the information necessary to file, pursue, or defend against the lawsuit and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record.
  • During a review of our practices under the authorization of a state or national licensing board, or as necessary to properly respond to an inquiry or complaint from such a licensing board of organization.
  • In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale, or merger of all or part of our company, if we take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review.
  • To provide information to our affiliates and nonaffiliated third parties who perform services or functions for us in conjunction with our services to you, but only if we have a contractual agreement with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed. Examples of such disclosures include using a payment processor, reservations maker, merchandise store, customer service provider, email marketing provider, or food delivery service.

We also may share your information, including your Personal Information, with our affiliates and other third parties, such as companies with whom we have marketing or other relationships, for direct marketing purposes. In addition, we may share the information we have collected about you, including Personal Information, as disclosed at the time you provide your information and as described in this Policy.

Finally, we may aggregate, de-identify, and/or anonymize any information collected through the Sites or Services such that such information is no longer linked to your personally identifiable information. We may use and share this aggregated and anonymized information (non-Personal Information) for any purpose, including without limitation, for research and marketing purposes, and may also share such data with our affiliates and third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners and others.

7. Ads and Information About You

You may see certain ads of our Sites because we participate in advertising networks administered by third parties. These networks track your online activities over time and across third party websites and online services by collecting information through automated means, including using the Tracking Technologies described above, and they use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests. The information they collect includes information about your visits to our Sites, such as the pages you have viewed. This collection and ad targeting takes place on our Sites and on third-party websites that participate in the ad network. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our communications and marketing efforts.

You can opt out of targeted advertising on some platforms by visiting the following:

8. Children’s Privacy

Our Sites is not intended for use by children under the age of 18. We do not request, or knowingly collect, any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 18 who you believe has provided her or his information to us, please contact us using the information in the Contact Us section below to request the deletion of that information.

9. Visitors to the Sites Outside of the United States

Our Sites is not intended for visitors outside of the United States and we do not direct our activities at users outside of the United States. If you are visiting the Sites from a location outside of the U.S., your connection will be through and to servers located in the U.S. All information you receive from the Sites will be created on servers located in the U.S., and all information you provide will be maintained on web servers and systems located within the U.S. The data protection laws in the United States may differ from those of the country in which you are located, and your information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States according to laws of the United States. By using the Sites or providing us with any information, you consent to the transfer to, and processing, usage, sharing and storage of your information in the United States and in other countries, as set forth in this Policy.

10. Third-Party Links

For your convenience, the Sites and this Policy may contain links to other websites not controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, advertising, products, services, or the content of such other websites. The use of third-party links on our Sites should not be deemed to imply that we endorse or has any affiliation with the links.

11. Security

We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission, or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the Sites, and you provide us with your information at your own risk.

12. Retention of Personal Information

We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our third-party data storage providers.

In some circumstances we may choose to anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

When deciding how long to keep your information, we consider:

  • How long we have had a relationship with you or provided our Services to you;
  • Whether we are subject to any legal obligations (e.g., any laws that require us to keep transaction records for a certain period of time before we can delete them)
  • Whether we have taken any legal positions (e.g., in connection with any statutes of limitation).

13. Your Privacy Choices

Updating Your Personal Information

We prefer to keep your Personal Information accurate and up to date. If you would like to change your contact information, please contact us using the information in the Contact Us section below. We will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our then active databases as soon as reasonably practicable (but we may retain prior information as business records).

Communications Preferences

With your consent, we communicate with you via through a variety of channels. You can opt out of receiving emails or text messages from us at any time. To manage your communications preferences with us — or to opt out of communications entirely — please unsubscribe at the bottom of our emails, reply “STOP” to our text messages, or contact us using the information in the Contact Us section below.

Please note that certain of your personal information, such as your name or other identifying information, may remain in our database even after an unsubscribe or deletion request in order to service your account, maintain the integrity and historical record of our database and systems, or to comply with applicable laws and regulations.

If you would prefer that we not share your name and mailing address with third parties (other than with our affiliates, service providers and Firms), you have the option to opt out of such sharing. To do so, please email us at [email protected]. Your choice will not affect our ability to share information in the other ways described in this Policy.

Controlling Your Cookies

On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive a notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. Please see the links below to learn how to modify your web browser’s settings on the most popular browsers:

Note that if you turn cookies off, you may be unable to access certain parts of the Sites and you may not be able to benefit from the full functionality of the Sites. To learn more about cookies and similar technologies and opt out of them, visit the following websites:

  • The Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page is available here.
  • The Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page is available here.

You may also click on the informational icon contained within each interest-based ad. We do not control these opt-out links or whether any company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.

Please note that even if you exercise the opt-out choices above, you may continue to receive advertisements, for example, ads based on the website you are viewing (e.g., contextually based ads), or you may still receive ads that are not targeted at you and may be less relevant. Also, if your browser (like some Safari browsers) is configured to reject opt-out cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt-out may not be effective.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals), but there is no universally agreed upon standard for what an organization should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors use the Sites and your personal information may be transferred to Google. Read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here and opt-out of Google Analytics here.

14. Your California Privacy Rights

This section of the Policy applies solely to California residents. We adopt this Section to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”). Any terms defined in the CCPA or CPRA have the same meaning when used in this Section.

In addition to the rights described above, California residents have the following rights:\

  • To know the categories of personal information being collected about you, the purposes for which the categories of information are collected or used, and whether that information is sold or shared;
  • To know the length of time we intend to retain each category of personal information;

  • To access your personal information;
  • To delete the information you have provided to us, with certain exceptions;

  • To limit the use of your SPI if it is used for cross-contextual behavioral advertising or for the purposes of inferring characteristics about you;
  • Not to be discriminated against, even if you exercise your privacy rights.

Request for Information, Correction, or Deletion

  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling or sharing personal information;
  • The categories of third parties to whom the business discloses personal information; and

In addition, if we have de-identified or anonymized data about you, we are not required to re-identify or otherwise link your identity to that data if it is not otherwise maintained that way in our records.

You can also request that we correct or delete your personal information. There may be certain exceptions to our obligation to delete your information such as if you have an existing account or transaction with us or if we have a legitimate business reason to keep your information.

Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information

California consumers also have the right, at any time, to tell us not to sell personal information or share it for cross-contextual behavioral advertising – this is called the “right to opt-out” of the sale of personal information. To opt-out of this, please click on this link .

Right to Limit Use of Sensitive Personal Information

California consumers have the right to limit the use of each type of Sensitive Personal Information for each purposeS with each type of third-party partner, if the Sensitive Personal Information is used for reasons other than those necessary to provide products or services to you or if it is collected for the purpose of inferring characteristics about a consumer. We already limit the amount of Sensitive Personal Information we collect from you, and we never use it for a purpose other than providing you with our products or services, or for the transaction for which it is required.

Right Not to Be Discriminated Against

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by California law, we will not:

  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, as permitted by California law, we may offer you certain financial incentives that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to the value of your Personal Information, for instance, if you sign up for a newsletter with us, we may provide you with discounts for future Services.

  1. Claims of Infringement 

Walker Advertising respects the intellectual property of others and requires that you do the same. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, Walker Advertising will respond expeditiously to notices of alleged copyright infringement that are duly reported to its Designated Copyright Agent identified in the notice below. Walker Advertising will disable and/or remove access to the website for users who are repeat infringers. If you believe that your content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide Walker Advertising Copyright Agent the following information: 

DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement (“Notice”) 

  • Identify the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, or if multiple works are covered by this Notice you may provide a representative list of the copyrighted works that you claim have been infringed. 
  • Identify the material or link you claim is infringing and provide a description of where the infringing work is located on the website. 
  • Provide your mailing address, telephone number and, if available, email address. 
  • Include both of the following statements in the body of the Notice: 
  • “I hereby state that I have a good-faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., fair use).” 
  • “I hereby state that the information in this Notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed.” 
  • Provide your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature. 
  • Deliver this Notice, with all items completed, to Walker Advertising Designated Copyright Agent: 

Copyright Agent 
Walker Advertising 
20101 Hamilton Ave, Suite 375 
Torrance, CA 90502 

While Walker Advertising considers all such notices seriously, you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that content or activity is infringing. Accordingly, if you are uncertain whether material infringes your copyrights (including whether use of copyrighted material may constitute fair use) you may wish to seek the advice of an attorney. 

  1. Indemnification 

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Walker Advertising, its affiliates, related entities, divisions, subsidiaries, or parent companies, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates and agents from and against any claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other liabilities in any way associated with: (i) your use of and access to the Sites or Services; (ii) your violation of any of these Terms; and (iii) your violation of any third party right including any copyright, trademark, trade secret, or privacy right related to your User Content (as applicable), use of the Sites, or any other use of the Sites or Services using your computer, mobile device, or account credentials. 

  1. Limitation of Liabilities 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW: IN NO EVENT WILL WALKER ADVERTISING (OR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, RELATED ENTITIES, JOINT VENTURES AND EMPLOYEES, OR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING OR DELIVERING THE SITE) BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES, INCLUDING BUT NOT IMITED TO CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR SPECIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE OR SERVICES, OR CONTENT INCLUDING ANY LOSS OF REVENUE, PROFITS, OR DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND EVEN IF WALKER ADVERTISING HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL WALKER ADVERTISING’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY (OR THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, RELATED ENTITIES, JOINT VENTURES AND EMPLOYEES) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, THE WEBSITE, OR THE SERVICES (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT NEGLIGENCE, WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED $100. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE MUST BEGIN WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WALKER ADVERTISING’S LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, WALKER ADVERTISING DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION. IF YOU ARE DISSATISIFIED WITH THE SITE, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO STOP USING THE SITE.  

  1. Release 

If you have a dispute with us or one or more users of the Sites or Services, you release Walker Advertising (and its officers, directors, affiliates, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. 

You expressly acknowledge and agree that all rights under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code are expressly waived. That section provides: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTENT TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.  

  1. Termination 

Walker Advertising reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to restrict, suspend, or terminate these Terms and your access to all or any part of the Sites or the Content or Services, at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability. You may terminate these Terms by discontinuing your use of the Services and access to the Sites. Walker Advertising also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cease providing the Sites or Services at any time. 

  1. Severability 

If any provision of these Terms is held in whole or in part to be invalid, void, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, the remainder of that provision and of the entire Agreement will be severable and remain in full force and effect.  

  1. Applicable Law 

These Terms will be governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, as applicable, without resort to any conflict of laws provisions. By using the Sites, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other countries or territories.  

  1. Dispute Resolution; Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver 

With respect to any and all disputes arising out of or in connection with the Sites, Services, or these Terms (including, without limitation, the Privacy Policy), Walker Advertising and you agree to first negotiate in good faith and undertake reasonable efforts to cooperate with one another in order to achieve a mutually satisfactory resolution. If you and Walker Advertising do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation within 60 days, then either of the parties may, by notice to the other, demand mediation under the supervision of JAMS (“JAMS”) in Los Angeles, California. If settlement is not reached within 90 days after service of a written demand for mediation (which time can be extended with the agreement of both parties in writing), any unresolved controversy or claim will be resolved by initiating binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of JAMS before a single arbitrator in Los Angeles, California. The expenses of the arbitration will be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses will be assessed in a different way, and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys’ fees and expenses by the arbitrator. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, pre-hearing information exchange will be limited to the reasonable production of relevant, non-privileged documents, conducted expeditiously. Both you and Walker Advertising understand that you are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award. 

Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis and neither you nor Walker Advertising will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under this agreement must be filed within one year in an arbitration proceeding, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary. The one-year period begins when the claim or notice of dispute first could be filed. If a claim or dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred. If any other provision of this section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be severed, with the remainder of this section remaining in full force and effect.  

You agree that Walker Advertising is entitled to obtain preliminary injunctive relief to the extent allowed by law to enforce any of the terms of these Terms pending a final arbitral decision, and you and Walker Advertising understand that you are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief from the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. Any disputes that are not handled by arbitration shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California, and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts. 

  1. General 

You may not assign any rights granted to you or delegate any of your duties hereunder and any attempt to do so is void and of no effect. Walker Advertising may assign its rights and delegate its duties under this Agreement in their entirety in connection with a merger, reorganization, or sale of all, or substantially all, of its assets relating to this Terms. Nothing in this Agreement constitutes a partnership or joint venture between you and Walker Advertising. Walker Advertising does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to this Site or Services, and operation of the Sites may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of its control. Walker Advertising’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Walker Advertising with respect to the subject matter hereof. Sections 7 (Prohibited Conduct); 8 (Security); 9 (Use of Account; Risk of Loss); 10 (Submitted Materials); 11 (Intellectual Property); 13 (Indemnification); 14 (Disclaimers); 15 (Limitation of Liabilities); 16 (Release); 18 (Severability); 19 (Applicable Law; Jurisdiction); 20 (Dispute Resolution; Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver) and 21 (General) survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement. Additionally, any provision that was, by its nature, intended to survive termination of these Terms will so survive.

  1. GENERALLY, WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED AND STORED? One of the basic principles we’ve tried to follow in designing the Site is that we ask for only the information we need to provide the service you’ve requested. As a result, the information we collect and store depends almost entirely on how you choose to make use of the Site and its related services.
  2. PERSONAL INFORMATION We collect and store information that you enter into the Site or that you provide through our Customer Service Department. For example, when you provide information about your accident to us or download information that requires submission of a form, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide, for example: name, address, email address, telephone number and a description of your case. This information is used to provide the services that you have requested, and to provide customer service. Information not required to provide the services that you have requested is always optional.
