Those who engage in transactions with 4A LAW are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 4A LAW collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 4A LAW. 4A LAW does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
