We will not share, sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties outside International Legal Platform and IJBL.

How We Use Information We Collect

We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site. Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any of the offices of International Legal Platform and IJBL throughout the world. Personal information which users in the European Union provide to us may be transferred to other countries (including the United States), the data protection laws of which may differ from those of the European Union and which may not meet the “adequate protection” standard set by the European Union, but by accessing the International Legal Platform or the International Journal of Business Law websites, you expressly agree to such transfer.


If we are compelled to disclose personally identifiable information for instance, in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request, we will inform you of such disclosure.
Note that we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the Web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.
