Introduction Legally Ours ("we," "us," or "our") respects the user's ("you" or "your") right to privacy. This policy summarizes what personal information we may collect, how we may use this information, and other important topics relating to your privacy and data protection, including special information for residents of the European Union. It is our policy to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws. This commitment reflects the value we place on earning and retaining the trust of our customers, business partners, and others who share their personal information with us.
This Policy applies to all Internet sites and mobile applications operated by or on behalf of Legally Ours and includes Legally Ours entities worldwide. It also applies to personal information Legally Ours may otherwise collect: (i) through our products and services; (ii) when you interact with us by means other than through Legally Ours websites or applications (e.g. in person, by telephone, or at a trade show or training); and (iii) from our customers, distributors, suppliers, vendors, and other business partners (collectively “Business Partners”).
However, different Legally Ours websites, apps, products, and services have different purposes and features. If additional or different disclosures are required for a specific Legally Ours Internet Site, App, product, or service, then we provide those disclosures separately on, or with, the relevant Internet Site, App, product, or service. Each such specific privacy disclosure, policy, or statement (“Specific Privacy Statement”) supplements and amends this Policy.

Legally Ours may collect technical information about your device, such as device type, browser type, IP address, operating system, and device identifier. Legally Ours may collect information automatically from your device and web browser through cookies and similar technologies.
Legally Ours may collect technical data about your usage of Legally Ours Internet Sites and Apps and how you interact with our digital advertisements and promotions, such as content viewed or downloaded, features used, links clicked, Legally Ours promotional emails opened, and dates and times of interactions.

Cookies and other Persistent Technology
A "cookie" is a file of information placed on your device when you visit a website. Cookies and similar technologies can enhance your user experience by saving your preferences, personalizing your online experience, holding items in your shopping cart, and sometimes providing you with advertising which is tailored to your interests.
Legally Ours Internet Sites use "session cookies." A session cookie does not identify you personally and expires after you close your browser. For example, when you use the Legally Ours Product Catalog, we place a session cookie to note what pages you have viewed. We can use this information to provide you with recommendations for other products that may be of interest.
Legally Ours Internet Sites also use "persistent cookies." These cookies do not expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until either when you delete them or when they expire. By assigning your computer a unique identifier, we are able to create a database of your previous choices and preferences which can be provided by us automatically, saving you time and effort on future visits. For example, after you make a purchase, if you decide to make another purchase, your shipping address may have been retained and will only need to be confirmed.
At any time when visiting a Legally Ours Internet Site for one of these countries, clicking on the "Cookie Preferences" link at the bottom of each page allows you to access information on cookies and change your settings. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit a Legally Ours Internet Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the site if you reject certain cookies.
In addition, your browser may allow you to adjust settings to accept or reject cookies, or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer.
