AZLawHelp Privacy Policy Statement

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for AZLawHelp.org, a project of the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education ("AZFLSE").

Information Collection and Use

AZLawHelp.org is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. AZLawHelp.org collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site. Any personal information gathered is voluntarily submitted and certain information that is generally considered not to be personally identifiable may be disclosed unless otherwise specified by the user. For example, we may include the first name and town or state with any comments. At any time you may request to delete any or all information we have retained from this website by sending an email to webmaster@azlawhelp.org

Privacy of Children

AZFLSE is committed to protecting the online privacy of children and making the Internet safe for all of our visitors. Other than voluntarily submitted e-mail addresses, AZFLSE does not collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. Any e-mail addresses that are collected are used to provide a single inquiry response or pass through message and are not retained after delivering a single response or pass through message. The "Questions," and "Comments" sections do not require at most a first name, age, city and state, which are not considered personally identifiable information. We encourage parents of children under 13 to regularly check and monitor their children's use of e-mail and other activities online. Parents may also consider using parental control tools available from online service providers and software manufacturers. These tools may be used to prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information online.

Send This To a Friend

If a user elects to use our "Send this to a friend" function, we ask them for the user's and friend's e-mail address. AZLawHelp.org only serves as a pass through service, delivering a link to the requested page to both parties.

Cookies

AZLawHelp.org uses cookies to remember if a user has previously logged in while he/she is on our site. This allows AZLawHelp.org users to avoid logging in multiple times, thereby saving time. Users have the option of disabling or not accepting cookies by changing the preferences on their browsers*. If a user opts not to enable cookies, he/she will still be able to use our Web site, however, he/she might not be able to use the areas of the site that require cookies. No personally identifiable information (email address, name, etc.) is collected with the cookies that we set, and accepting cookies while on the AZLawHelp.org site will not put the user at risk for marketing to other sites.

*Different browsers provide different cookie-settings. With Netscape you can ask the browser to allow, warn you, or completely disable cookies. Internet Explorer has an additional feature where you can specify different settings for different security zones. You can choose to allow Web sites to create cookies for you in your "trusted sites" (like AZLawHelp.org), to warn you before you create them in your local Intranet zone, and to give you an option to never allow them in a "restricted zone." See the "Help" section of your particular browser for more information on working with cookies.

Web Statistics

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use for reporting and sponsorship purposes. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. Information from our visitors is collected via web access logs, scripting languages, email, and html forms. Information collected may include log generated statistics and computer configuration, such as your operating system type, browser type, etc. Information collected is used for reporting statistics, business improvement, account maintenance, and web site improvement.

Sharing

We reserve the right to share aggregated demographic information with our partners, sponsors, and donors. This information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We share this information so that we can demonstrate site activity to secure funding to continue providing this site free of charge.

AZFLSE reserves the right to use or disclose any information with your permission or in special circumstances, such as when such disclosure is believed to be necessary to comply with the law or regulations, to protect the integrity of the Site, to fulfill your requests, to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety, or to respond to claims that any files or data violate the rights of third parties, or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of AZFLSE, its users, or the public. For example, AZFLSE will make such disclosures necessary under the reporting procedures of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Links

This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that AZLawHelp.org does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Security

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' stored information, and we have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Surveys

From time-to-time our site may request information from users via Web surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include demographic information (such as zip code, age level), but no information that can identify any individual person will be collected. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our home page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, that we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Acceptance of Privacy Terms and Conditions

Your access to and use of this Site are subject to these privacy terms, to the current Terms of Use available on this Site, and to all applicable laws. Such access and use indicates that you fully accept, without reservation, these terms and conditions. From time to time, it may be necessary for AZFLSE to revise this Privacy Policy, so we suggest that you check here periodically as you are bound by such revisions. Any changes, however, will not be retroactively applied and will not alter how we handle previously collected information.

  • I rented a house from a realtor and was in the house for over a year and a half and gave her a month and a half notice when I would be moving out. I am a smoker and no where in my lease does it say anything about not smoking in the property, now she is saying it will come out of my deposit whatever it cost her to get rid of the smoke smell. Is this legal?
  • I am currently renting a home in Tucson that has a Swamp Cooler. The swamp cooler has not been keeping the house cool. The temperature reaches between 88-91 degrees inside even with many fans throughout house. The landlord has failed to offer any way of cooling down the house. If we want an AC unit in the windows we must pay for it. He has neglected to fix things because we pay "cheap rent for the neighborhood we're in." Is the landlord legally responsible for providing livable conditions such as accurate cooling?
  • In May, I moved into a 12 unit complex in Scottsdale with a pool. The pool was green & the landlord told me it was being emptied, retiled, and filled & would be closed for a couple weeks. I am about to pay August's rent and the pool is still out of commission. It was emptied and two workers came one day to chip away the tiling. Nothing has been done since. What rights do I have as a tenant to start deduct rent or demanding repairs? The pool was a driving force in my renting & it's making a terrible for a terribly frustrating AZ summer. What do I tell my landlord??
