Paladin Legal Service Organization User Agreement

Last updated: August 25th, 2020

Thank you for using Paladin’s free tools for legal services organizations! As a quick reminder, Paladin does not provide legal services, but rather is a technology tool that helps organizations streamline their pro bono referrals to partner organizations.

When you use Paladin’s tools to refer pro bono opportunities or manage your pro bono program, you are agreeing to our terms, so please take a few minutes to review this Legal Service Organization User Agreement (“LSO User Agreement”). The LSO User Agreement includes the following, as well as Paladin’s Acceptable Use Policy, Service Level Agreement, and Privacy Policy, which are standard across all Paladin’s pro bono software and services (“Paladin’s Services”).

In addition, by using Paladin’s free tools, you agree to Paladin displaying your organization’s name and contact information to other Paladin partner organizations for the purpose allowing them to select you as a pro bono partner. Contact information may include the first and last name, email address and phone number of the designated user(s) at your organization. By inputting this data, you represent that you have the appropriate authority and consent to do so. This information will not be viewable publicly on the internet, but will be viewable to all law firms, corporate legal teams and portal clients using Paladin on their private password protected interfaces, as well as any public platforms you may post opportunities to, or individuals who may view your opportunities via your use of the “create link” functionality outlined below. Paladin may also disclose the name of organizations using Paladin to potential law firms, corporate legal teams and portal clients.

By posting opportunities, you understand and agree that any opportunities you share will be 1) viewable by any and all users at the designated partner organization and offices (i.e. New York office of law firm X) that you select to share the opportunity with, and 2) in the case of a statewide or public portal, viewable by the general public and findable via search engines, and 3) in the case of semi-public links that you generate using Paladin’s “create link” functionality, viewable to recipients that you share the link with, and whomever they may send it to, and so on. Paladin is not responsible or liable for the sharing of opportunities in this way.

By posting opportunities on Paladin, you agree not to include personally identifiable information (“PII”) regarding pro bono clients or other individuals. In turn, Paladin does not own opportunity data, and your opportunities are not editable by other Paladin users outside of your organization. Paladin agrees not to use or share opportunity data, except it may use such data 1) internally to improve and enhance the Services and for other development, diagnostic and corrective purposes in connection with the Services or 2) in an anonymized and aggregated format.

Our Privacy Policy describes how we use Personal Data we receive from different sources. This Privacy Shield Policy describes how we process Personal Data covered by the Privacy Shield.

If you are a User, We may act as a data processor for you in relation to the Personal Data that your employer provides or makes available to Us. We usually will not have a relationship with Users.

In its role as a controller and as required by applicable law, We generally offer individuals in the EU, UK and Switzerland (together: “EEA/UK/CH Individuals”) the opportunity to choose whether their Personal Data may be (i) disclosed to third-party controllers or (ii) used for a purpose that is materially different from the purposes for which the information was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the relevant EEA/UK/CH Individuals. To the extent required by the Privacy Shield Principles, We obtain opt-in consent for certain uses and disclosures of sensitive data. EEA/UK/CH Individuals may contact Us as indicated below regarding Our use or disclosure of their Personal Data. Unless We offer EEA/UK/CH Individuals an appropriate choice, We use Personal Data only for purposes that are materially the same as those indicated in this Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes how We share Personal Data. Except as permitted or required by applicable law and in accordance with Our role as a controller or processor, We provide EEA/UK/CH Individuals and Users with an opportunity to opt out of sharing their Personal Data with third-party processors. We require third-party processors to whom it discloses the Personal Data of EEA/UK/CH Individuals and Users to contractually agree to (a) only process the Personal Data for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the relevant EEA/UK/CH Individuals and Users, (b) provide the same level of protection for Personal Data as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles, and (c) notify Us and cease processing Personal Data (or take other reasonable and appropriate remedial steps) if the third-party processor determines that it cannot meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection for Personal Data as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles.

We may disclose Personal Data to trusted third parties as indicated in the Privacy Policy without offering an opportunity to opt out. We require that its agents and service providers that have access to Personal Data within the scope of this Privacy Shield Policy provide the same level of protection as required by the Privacy Shield Principles. We ensure that our agents process Personal Data received under the Privacy Shield in a manner consistent with our obligations under the Privacy Shield Principles, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

We may also need to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, for law enforcement or national security reasons, or when such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding or court order, or when otherwise required by law.

We use reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the nature of the Personal Data and the risks involved in processing that information

6. Access to Personal Data

Our Privacy Policy explains how you may access and/or submit requests to review, correct, update, suppress, or delete Personal Data. You can ask to review and correct Personal Data that we maintain about you by sending a written request to [email protected]. We may limit or deny access to Personal Data where providing such access is unreasonably burdensome, expensive under the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Privacy Shield Principles.

If you have any questions or concerns, please write to us at [email protected]. We will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding use and disclosure of Personal Data in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles.

In the event we are unable to resolve your concern, you may contact JAMS, which provides an independent third-party dispute resolution body based in the United States, and they will investigate and assist you free of charge. A binding arbitration option may also be available to you in order to address residual complaints not resolved by any other means. We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”).

Children’s Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13.
