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.

QUESTIONS

  • I have used the last name of my mothers second husband for my whole life. I was unaware that I was not officially adopted or entitled to use the name until recently with the new ID law coming into effect. Can I change my name legally now. If I do so will my wife have change her name. even though we were married several years ago? every thing I own is in the last name of my step dad does that matter if I change it now?
  • Where can I find a court approved parenting class?
  • How do I go about getting a copy of my modified parenting plan? Am I required to view the minute entries and request a court transcript?
  • My landlord of the apartment complex has made everyone aware that we won't have hot water for a month and a half, and they'll take $100 off rent. Is that legal?
  • Our landlord has decided to upgrade/renovate all apartments and says we have to move into another apartment either temporarily or permanently (our choice). This will cause inconvenience, time, energy, and money since some of us will need help moving furniture. Must they pay moving expenses, move our belongings for us, or compensate in any way? Can we terminate our lease (mine is up in a couple of months) because we are forced to move all of our belongings out? I'm thinking if I have to move everything out anyway, that perhaps I should just move altogether. The apartments are in good shape.... nothing wrong with them. What are my rights? How much notice do they have to give us? Btw.... I have housing assistance. Thank you
  • My 15 year old daughter moved back to live with me just over a year ago. My ex and I went to court to change custody and he was awarded 57 days of visitation. I drive my daughter 5 hours to where he lives so she has the opportunity to see him. She does not want to stay at his house because his new wife is verbally and emotionally abusive. He always knows when she is in town and he refuses to see her if she doesn't stay at his house. Do I have to force her to stay with him if I know what she has to go through there? Am I in contempt of court if I do not force her to stay at his house?
  • I have a collection on my credit report which belongs to my husband. When contacting the collection agency, they told me that this collection will stay on my report because I am married to the person which ows them money. The account was included in our bankruptcy in 2013 as an individual debt and not a joint debt. Am I responsible for my husbands debt? It was for electrical service my husband applied for himself. Thank you
