a. Establish and maintain business relationships with you;
b. To send you newsletters and information that you have signed up to receive;

We will not send you commercial electronic messages or “spam” you without your consent. To prevent this, we have automated our email marketing and newsletters with MailChimp, which uses a "double opt-in" process. If you have received a message from Orion Legal Research and believe that you have not provided your consent, please contact Christopher Felling at [email protected]
Consent and authorization to use your information: When we collect information from you and use your information, depending on the circumstances we are allowed to collect and use the information based on your express consent, our reasonable beliefs that you have consented, or the obligations we have under the Legal Profession Act, and the Law Society of Alberta’s rules and Code of Conduct to collect information from you. You may decline to consent to our collection of information from you. However, we may not be able to provide you our Services, including access to the Website, without first collecting information from you. For example, you cannot use the Website without your computer providing some information (such as your IP address, type of browser, and domain name) to the Website. Similarly, we must comply with client ID rules in order to provide legal services. By using the Website and our Services, you represent to us that you consent to our collection of your personal information as reasonable and necessary in the circumstances.
Disclosure: Ordinarily we will only use or disclose your information for the purposes for which it was collected. In some circumstances, however, Orion Legal Research will need to disclose your personal information to others, for example:
a. If disclosure is necessary in an emergency that threatens life, health, or security;
b. If required by law, or by a government agency, we may be compelled to disclose your information for purposes of law enforcement or investigation;
c. To collect a debt owed to Orion Legal Research;
d. If Orion Legal Research goes bankrupt or out of business;
e. If Orion Legal Research or a substantial portion of its business is sold, acquired, or merged into another company; or
f. If the law requires that information be disclosed or made publicly available.
Internet security: When you voluntarily submit information to us through the Website, we secure that information to the best of our ability once it reaches our server. Your information may not be secure in transit between your computer and our server, and we cannot guarantee the security of information in transit to us. We use commercially reasonable security practices for our Website and other information technology. No security system is impenetrable, however, and so we cannot guarantee the security of information we receive. You transmit information to Orion Legal Research at your own risk.
Third parties: We employ third parties to help maintain our Website and other information technology. These third parties only have access to your information when they perform these services for us. We also use the services of third parties as part of email marketing and newsletter automation.
Third party websites: Other websites and services that Orion Legal Research does not operate may have different privacy policies and deal with your information in different ways than we do. Third parties who process payments for your orders with Orion Legal Research may likewise have different privacy policies and practices from ours. We encourage you to examine the privacy policies of these third parties.
Servers and ISPs: Our web servers automatically collect a limited amount of information when you visit and use the Website, including your internet domain name or IP address. Depending on your internet service provider this information may be used to identify you. We encourage you to contact your internet service provider about their policies and practices.
"Cookies": The Website may use “cookies” to assist you when you return to the Website, or to determine your use of the Website. If you wish, you may use a web browser or settings within a web browser to deny the use of “cookies” or to warn you when they are used.
