Fastcase, Inc. takes privacy issues seriously, and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose information. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information that we collect through the Fastcase websites, located at www.fastcase.com and www.plol.org (the “Websites”), mobile application, and web product (the “Product”), as well as through HTML-formatted email messages that we send to you that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Services”). By using the Services, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

Registration Information: When you sign up for an account, you provide us with information, including:

  • Name

We may use a third-party payment service to process payments made through the Services.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team or send us a message, we will receive your name, email address, state of residence, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide

Information We Collect Automatically From Your Use of the Services

When you use our Services, we and our third party service providers may collect information from you through automated means, such as cookies, web beacons, user behavior, and web server logs.

The information collected in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device IDs and characteristics, operating system version, language preferences, referring URLs, and information about the usage of our Services.
We may use this information, for example, to ensure that the Services function properly, to determine how many users have visited certain pages or opened messages or newsletters, or to prevent fraud. We use IP address to derive your approximate location.
We work with analytics and user-behavior providers such as Google Analytics, which uses cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze information about use of the Services and report on activities and trends. This service may also collect information regarding the use of other websites, apps and online resources.
