OUR POLICY

This privacy policy covers this website www.bodhala.com (or any other web site operating under the domain of Bodhala.com (the “Site”), owned and operated by Bodhala Inc) or the legal platform offered under that domain name (the “Service”) (henceforward “Bodhala,” “we,” “us,” and/or “our”).  This policy applies to all users of the Site or Service, including companies, or their representatives, attorneys and law firms, or their representatives, who in any way use the Site or Service provided by Bodhala (in each case, a “User”). This Privacy Policy sets forth Bodhala’s policy with respect to information, including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”), company information (“Company Data”) and other information that is collected from Site visitors and users of the Services.

When you interact with us through the Site or the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information such as when you register for access to the Services (for example, contact information such as your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number) and when you contact us with inquiries.

We also allow the uploading of documents (for example, staffing and pricing information, details on bids, and company bios) to facilitate transactions between parties on the Site.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data or Company Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data or Company Data, you acknowledge and agree that such data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Bodhala and the authorized third parties referred to herein, such data may be analyzed by Bodhala employees to facilitate transactions between parties on the site, and such data may be analyzed and shared in aggregated and anonymized form.  Information on individual matters is kept completely confidential and is not shared outside Bodhala.

Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data: When you interact with Bodhala through the Site or Services, we receive and store certain non-identifiable information about you. Such information, which may be collected passively using various technologies or through other means, cannot be used to specifically identify you.

We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. Bodhala may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Bodhala affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Bodhala often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to Bodhala by Issuers and Users.

This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Bodhala may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. Bodhala may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

In operating this Site, we may also use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site.

The use of cookies by any of our affiliates or service providers is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

This site may employ Google Analytics, which is used to track viewing trends and help analyze how visitors use the Bodhala Site. This information will help us to improve the Bodhala Site and the overall user experience. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form.  Google Analytics has its own privacy policy at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
