LexCheck Privacy Policy

LexCheck, Inc. (“LexCheck” “We”, “Us”) recognizes and appreciates concerns you may have about how we use the personal information we collect from you through LexCheck’s website (the “Site”) and other plug-ins exchanging information with LexCheck (“Applications”). (The Site and Applications are sometimes collectively referred to as “Online Services” for simplicity.) LexCheck takes your privacy seriously and has implemented this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) and internal policies and practices to keep your personal and financial information secure. 

The Privacy Policy covers LexCheck’s treatment of the Personally Identifiable Information we collect when you use the Online Services. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our Terms of Service, and therefore governs your use of the Online Services. By using LexCheck Online Services, you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you have questions or concerns about the Privacy Policy, please contact Customer Care at support@lexcheck.com

Collection and Use of Personal Information

LexCheck requires each customer to provide us with certain personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”) to access and use LexCheck products and services. Personally Identifiable Information may include: (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 gender); and (iv) other “Legal Data” (such as your social security number, company information, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents).

***

Account and Services Information: We collect Personally Identifiable Information when a visitor accesses Online Services, or speaks on the phone with a LexCheck employee, and discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with an Online Service and engages in transactions. We use information we collect from the Online Services to communicate with you, process your orders, facilitate your transactions with our third-party marketing partners, and inform you of offers and discounts. For example, you may receive a welcome email that confirms your username and password, and later receive communications responding to your inquiries, providing services you request, and managing your account. We occasionally send service-related announcements, for example, to alert you if we need to temporarily suspend the Site for maintenance.

Your contact information may be used to follow up with you on transactions you initiate through Online Services, respond to inquiries made through Online Services, inform you of changes to Online Services, and send you additional information about LexCheck and its products and services.

Contact Us: When you contact us with a comment, question or complaint through email, phone or through the Online Services we may collect information about you or ask for information that identifies you, such as your name, email address or telephone number. 

Third Party Data. We may collect the information of third 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 LexCheck account. LexCheck uses this information for the sole purpose of administering its services for our customers and does not use such information for any other reason.

Testimonials and Reviews. We may display personal testimonials of satisfied customers. We will ask for your specific consent as part of the survey. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at support@lexcheck.com. We may also display customer reviews. If you provide a review that we display and wish to update or delete it, you can also contact us at support@lexcheck.com.

Calls/Electronic Communications. In the regular course of our business, LexCheck may monitor and record phone conversations or email communications between you and LexCheck employees for training and quality assurance purposes with your consent. We may receive a confirmation when you open or click on content in an email from us, which helps us make our communications to you more useful and interesting. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related or transactional communications, which are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communications, you may terminate your account by contacting support@lexcheck.com. However, you can opt-out of promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions in any communication or by emailing us at support@lexcheck.com

You may choose not to provide LexCheck with Personally Identifiable Information, withdraw your consent for our use of, or restrict processing of your Personally Identifiable Information at any time. If you make these decisions, you may continue to use the Online Services and browse its pages. However, LexCheck cannot process orders without Personally Identifiable Information.

Sharing of Personal Information

We do not sell, rent or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties without your consent, except as described below or as required or permitted by applicable law:

  • 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. Our service providers are only provided with the information they need to perform their designated functions and are not authorized to use or disclose the information we share with them for their own marketing or any other purpose. If you express interest in a third party offer or purchase a package that includes a third party offer, we may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to that third party solely in connection with the offer you have selected.
  • Registered Agent Requests. If you designate a person or company other than LexCheck to serve as the registered agent for your business entity, LexCheck may provide your name and contact information to that party, if requested.
  • Required by Law. We and our service providers may also disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if we are required or permitted by applicable law, such as in response to a subpoena or similar legal process, lawful access by foreign courts, law enforcement or other government authorities in the jurisdictions in which we or our service providers operate. Your Personally Identifiable Information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss to persons or property. Please be aware that the Online Services are hosted and operated in the United States and other jurisdictions through LexCheck and its service providers, and laws in the United States and other jurisdictions may differ from the laws where you reside.
  • Business Transactions. We may share Personally Identifiable Information and other data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with LexCheck. If LexCheck is merged, acquired, or sold, or if some or all of our assets or equity are transferred, we may disclose or transfer Personally Identifiable Information and other data in connection with prospective or completed transactions.
  • Bankruptcy. In the event of an LexCheck bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used. If such an event occurs, your Personally Identifiable Information may be treated like any other LexCheck asset and sold, transferred, or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted under this Privacy Policy. In this case, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.


Certain personal information becomes public record when documents are filed with the federal or state government, or with a court. For example, a corporation’s name, business address, and registered agent name become public information when its articles of incorporation are filed. A Secretary of State may publish this information to its website or provide this information to third parties for a fee. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes the names and addresses of trademark registrants. In some states, fictitious business names, including the name and address of the business owner, must be published in a newspaper. The LexCheck Privacy Policy does not cover these or similar third party actions.

Where permitted by applicable law, we may share information for other reasons we disclose to you.
