PRIVACY POLICY


Last Updated: July 15, 2019


This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes how Firm Data, Inc. (the “Company”) collects, uses and share personal information of users of the myFirmData service or website (collectively, the “Service”). Any capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Policy have the meaning assigned to them in our Terms of Service. We use common industry standards to safeguard the data we collect. This Policy also applies to any of our other websites that post this Policy. This Policy does not apply to websites that post different statements.


To understand how we collect and use data, we have to differentiate between information about users who register to use the Service (“User Information”) and data about their clients from the third party law practice management platform, Clio (“Client Data”).

We do not collect, store or share Client Data. Information about your firm and your clients is always private. When you use the Service, your information is transmitted from the Clio servers to your computer via secured APIs. This data is accessed while running the reports through our service.

Client Data is stored only on your local device and in the Clio servers subject to their privacy policy.
