We collect data on this website. We try to protect your privacy and security.

We collect a few kinds of information. We do our best to only collect information we need and will use.

We do not sell data, or use data to try to sell products or services to users. We may use data to target advertising of our services or website as a way of conducting outreach for the free legal services and information we provide.
Our interactive Guide to Legal Help tool asks for and collects information from users to help us suggest the best legal resources and information available for their legal problem or issue. This tool is optional – you can visit our website and use our content without using this tool. If you decide to use this tool, we will ask for:
All of the information we collect in the Guide to Legal Help is used to help determine the best legal resources and information – based on the region where the user lives, user age, membership in specific groups, financial eligibility for legal services, and legal problem. We collect this information because different resources are available based on these factors, and we need the information to provide users the best results.
We do not collect personally identifying information like name, address, or email address. The data we do collect and use does not allow us to identify individual users.
We keep statistics such as:

This intake does not guarantee legal services, and it does not form an attorney-client relationship – but it does allow users to fill out more detailed information about themselves and their legal problem. We use this information to check for legal conflicts, and attempt to contact people shortly after they submit the form.
In our online intake form we do ask for personally identifying information such as:
We also compile statistics about the use of online intake in the same way we do with our Guide to Legal Help. These statistics are anonymized – this means all personally identifying information is removed.
We use this data to:
Nobody outside of Pine Tree Legal Assistance has access to this information. It is kept strictly confidential. We do not sell this information or share it for any reason. Contact information is only used to contact users for legal services they have requested.
