What Information Do We Collect About Our Customers?
Traffic Data. Oakline MC Inc. may collect a variety of visitor data such as IP addresses, browser settings, internet service provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamps, and clickstream data (collectively “Visitor Data”). The Oakline MC Inc. internal servers and software automatically recognize Visitor Data. No Personally Identifiable Information is collected in this process. The Site may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use the Site at specific intervals (collectively “Traffic Data”).
We may use Traffic Data to analyze Site traffic, but this information is not examined for Personally Identifiable Information. We may also use Traffic Data to diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, or display content according to your preferences. Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
Web Beacons. We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons), that help us track referrals from our partners and affiliates and better manage content on our site. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ Personally Identifiable Information.
Personal Information. Oakline MC Inc. requires each customer to provide us with personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”) to access and use Oakline MC Inc. products and services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured only when a visitor accesses Online Services, or speaks on the phone with a Oakline MC Inc. employee, and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with an Online Service, engages in transactions, contacts customer service, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by Oakline MC Inc..
Personally Identifiable Information includes: (i) “Contact Data” (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) “Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) “Demographic Data” (such as your zip code and sex); and (iv) other “Legal Data” (such as your social security number, mortgage information, automobile information, marital information, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents).
We may collect the information of 3rd party individuals as necessary, such as to ask our customers to indicate beneficiaries of a will, record shareholders of a company, or register authorized contacts to access their Oakline MC Inc. account. Oakline MC Inc. uses this information for the sole purpose of administering its services for our customers, and does not use such information for any other reason.

We share customer information with third parties only as follows:

Visitor Demographics. Contact Data and Traffic Data are used to gather general statistics about our customers and visitors.

For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users and unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed.
Legal Plan Attorneys and Attorney-Assisted Products. As a convenience to you and your attorney, we may share your Personally Identifiable Information, information about your order, and your order history with your legal plan attorneys and with attorneys who service our attorney-assisted products. We will notify you prior to sharing this information and, where the information is not necessary to complete your order, give you the opportunity to opt-out.
Service Providers. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with companies that provide support services to us (such as a printer or email service provider), or help us market our products and services.
