Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 2014

This is the privacy policy for the bankruptcy site, Total Bankruptcy.

All of the information we obtain about you is stored securely on our servers and we use it only to identify the sponsoring lawyers or law firms in your geographical area and to connect you with them, as described in our Terms and Conditions to you, to allow sponsoring lawyers or law firms to evaluate your case and provide legal services to you and to provide ongoing communications to you in furtherance of these legal services, and as set forth below. Except as set forth below, we will not share your personal information with anyone else without your permission. Any third party to whom we provide your information must agree to keep your information confidential and not to share it with any other third party without your permission. We describe our information collection and disclosure practices in greater detail below.

As a service to our customers, we may periodically send newsletters and other communications with information and offers we think may interest you. If you do not want to receive these offers, you may opt out at any time by following the Opt-Out Instructions, below.
