Privacy Policy

DiscoverLaw.org is owned by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). We are committed to providing you the best possible online service and experience, and your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation of DiscoverLaw.org, certain types of information are gathered about DiscoverLaw.org users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, and what we do with it.

Information Collected at DiscoverLaw.org

Two types of personally identifying information are collected from DiscoverLaw.org users: personal data that users supply to us voluntarily (such as names and e-mail addresses), and aggregated data (such as information about DiscoverLaw.org traffic patterns).

Personal Data

Personal data is collected when users voluntarily provide such data when registering for a DiscoverLaw.org account. This data will be transferred to LSAC for inclusion in a larger database of LSAC account holders. This information is never shared with third parties for commercial purposes.
