Use of Email
Lawyerist uses reputable third parties to deliver the emails we send. You will only get emails from us if you subscribe to our email newsletters or have chosen to receive information about Lawyerist products and offers. These third parties use unique identifiers and invisible images (often called “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) to determine who has opened or clicked on a message and to deliver messages formatted for the user’s device and software.
Content in these emails is provided by Lawyerist or, in some cases, by a third-party ad server.

We use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit Lawyerist.

Data Security Precautions
Lawyerist uses a variety of data security practices to help ensure as much security as possible. There is no such thing as perfect data security, but we use SSL encryption on our website and, to the best of our knowledge, all third-party data hosting we use also employs SSL. We require that all employees with access to user data have a VPN installed on their devices, use an encrypted password manager, and activate hardware encryption for their work devices.
