Information Collected (non-members)
Information Collected (members)
"Members" are those users who decide to register for one of the discussion boards offered by Law School Discussion. In addition to collecting the user information described in the non-members section above, we also collect user's email addresses. Email addresses are used for opt-in announcements (such as an announcement that a new reply has been posted to a topic started by the member), and occasional general announcements from the administrator and staff.
Member data such as IP addresses, email addresses, and account names are also used to identify users that post malicious messages. While user data is rarely shared with third parties, Law School Discussion reserves the right to disclose any and all collected user information to law enforcement agencies, hosting organizations (such as universities that provide internet service), and other third parties for the purposes of reducing malicious, inappropriate, or unlawful messages.
Deletion of a Member account may remove some user information from the Law School Discussion website, however most user information will remain. Deletion of a Member account does not affect the treatment of the collected Member information.
With the exception of the user data that may be disclosed to third parties to reduce malicious, inappropriate, or unlawful messages, Law School Discussion does not disclose personal information. Law School Discussion may disclose aggregate user information to third parties. In addition, volunteer moderators of Law School Discussion have access to user information such as email addresses and IP information. Law School Discussion does not guarantee that volunteer moderators will hold user information in confidence.
