TERMS OF USE, DISCLAIMER AND PRIVACY POLICY

April 12, 2012

The information provided as part of the Indy Lawyer Finder™ service is offered by the Indianapolis Bar Association (“IBA”) and is not legal advice. The term “website” is intended to include this page and all other website pages in the Indy Lawyer Finder portal. Indy Lawyer Finder is not a lawyer referral service, and no attorney-client or confidential relationship is or should be formed by use of the site. The attorney listings on the Indy Lawyer Finder website are paid attorney advertisements and do not in any way constitute a referral or endorsement by Indy Lawyer Finder or any approved or authorized lawyer referral service. This website is designed for general information only. None of the information presented on this site should be construed to be either formal legal advice and/or the formation of a lawyer/client relationship. Visitors to Indy Lawyer Finder should seek advice from a licensed attorney with regard to any specific legal issues.

All representations made by attorneys advertising on this website or any other sites to which attorneys have established links from this site, are the sole responsibility of the attorney and in no way constitute representation from Indy Lawyer Finder, the IBA, or any affiliate or representative thereof. Moreover, the IBA does not warrant, guarantee, bond, or otherwise assume responsibility for any legal services which any advertising attorney may agree to perform if contacted by a user of this website or for any other act or omission to act by such attorney.

The accuracy of the Indy Lawyer Finder website, information, and resources identified are not warranted, guaranteed, or intended to substitute for professional legal advice, to contradict legal advice given, or for legal counsel.

All materials related to the Indy Lawyer Finder website, including the site’s design, layout, and organization, are owned and copyrighted by the IBA, or its suppliers or vendors, and are protected by U.S. and International copyrights. You may not create framed links to the Indy Lawyer Finder web pages without express written permission from the IBA. Only your personal use of such materials is permitted.

Communications to the Indy Lawyer Finder website from individuals or organizations seeking an attorney will be forwarded only to lawyers or law firms which have paid consideration other than costs to be included and receive such information. Transmission of such information is not intended to create, and receipt of the information does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship.

This information is not provided in the course of an attorney-client relationship and is not intended to constitute legal advice or to substitute for obtaining legal advice from an attorney licensed in your state. This website is not intended to be advertising, and the attorneys who have paid to receive inquiries submitted to this site do not wish to represent anyone based upon viewing this website in a state where this website fails to comply with all laws, professional responsibility and ethical rules of that state.

You understand and agree that neither the IBA nor its suppliers and vendor shall be liable for any loss or damage of any kind directly or indirectly resulting from your use of this site or the information or the resources contained on or accessible through it.

The IBA is in no way an affiliate, partner, subsidiary, and/or employee of any professional counsel or legal service whose link(s) may appear on this website.

When you register for our services, which may include access to lawyer searches, we may ask for your name, address, phone number, and other information.

One other method Indy Lawyer Finder uses to collect information is through the use of “cookies.” Cookies are simply pieces of information that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. The cookies collected by Indy Lawyer Finder do not contain any personally identifying information, but enable us to provide features such as immediate access to our lawyer database and resources. You may prevent the collection of cookies by configuring your browser accordingly.

By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of this information by Indy Lawyer Finder. By providing your information you give the IBA permission to forward the information to the lawyers or law firms. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

Our directory of lawyers is built through the process of registration from the lawyers themselves. For a listing in the Indy Lawyer Finder database, we ask for the minimum of firm name, address, phone, email, and areas of practice.

Indy Lawyer Finder gathers information from server log files. When you visit any website, you disclose certain information, such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the Site or page that offered a link to a Indy Lawyer Finder page). Indy Lawyer Finder, like most other sites, records this basic information about visits to its site.

Other than as described herein Indy Lawyer Finder does not disclose personal information to third parties other than the prospective referral lawyers to whom a referral is made or to the IBA’s software developer and any data hosting service. Indy Lawyer Finder does not sell, trade, or rent the personal information collected from our visitors or lawyers.
