Collected Information

Although users are not required to provide any information in order to use the UnitedLex website, UnitedLex does collect personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information from users in certain circumstances.

Personally identifiable information: This consists of information that can be used on its own, or with other information, to identify a specific individual. UnitedLex only collects personally identifiable information that is voluntarily provided by users. This includes names, e-mail addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers, employment information and education information.

Non-personally identifiable information: This consists of information that cannot be used on its own, or with other information, to identify a specific individual. UnitedLex collects non-personally identifiable information through the use of cookies. A cookie is a small file that is placed on the user’s hard drive. The user’s browser will generally add information to this file regarding the user’s activity on a given website. UnitedLex can then access this information to enhance the user’s experience on UnitedLex’s website. Non-personally identifiable information captured by cookies relates to the user’s activity on the UnitedLex website. This includes, but is not limited to, pages that are visited, links that are accessed and material that is downloaded.

Usage of Information

UnitedLex uses collected information* to enhance the operation of the UnitedLex website and improve user experience. UnitedLex may also use collected information to contact users about business opportunities they may be interested in.

* There are different rules for information that UnitedLex collects when users apply for jobs with UnitedLex through the UnitedLex website. This includes information entered in job application forms and contained in resumes sent to UnitedLex. UnitedLex uses this information only in ways consistent with the employment application process. This includes, but is not limited to, reviewing the qualifications of the applicant, creating and administering an applicant profile, verifying references, collecting feedback on the application process or contacting applicants about other job openings or opportunities.

UnitedLex will not rent, share, sell or distribute any collected information to third parties, except as otherwise described in this policy. UnitedLex may disclose collected information with appropriate parties when UnitedLex, in its sole discretion, deems such disclosure necessary to comply with a legal requirement.

By using this website, the user consents to UnitedLex’s collection, storage and use of information in accordance with this privacy policy.

UnitedLex advises users located outside the United States that the data privacy laws and protections of the United States may be different from those in the user’s home jurisdiction. By using this website, users located outside the United States also consent to the collection, storage and use of information in accordance with this privacy policy.

Third Party Website Disclaimer

This privacy policy only applies to UnitedLex’s website. UnitedLex may link to third party websites but makes no guarantees as to the privacy, functionality or accuracy of any third party website. UnitedLex encourages users to review the privacy policy of any website they visit.

Do Not Track

Certain web browsers may give the user the ability to utilize a “do not track” setting that communicates with websites the user visits. UnitedLex does not currently respond to “do not track” signals, but this privacy policy will be amended if UnitedLex chooses to do so in the future.

Collection by Other Parties

UnitedLex collects personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable user information from its website as described in this privacy policy. No other parties collect information when users access UnitedLex’s website. However, UnitedLex cannot make guarantees as to the collection policies of third party websites. Users should be aware that UnitedLex utilizes third party websites to facilitate its job application function. This is the case when users apply for jobs with UnitedLex and UnitedLex Professional Services. Therefore, UnitedLex cannot make any guarantees as to the collection policies of the third parties that facilitate the job application process. Users are encouraged to review the privacy policies of those third party websites before providing any personal information.
