1. WHAT JDCOT IS AND DOES
JDCOT provides educational content on the topic of careers and career advancement to help those with law degrees, earning law degrees and/or considering earning law degrees. Although the majority of content provided and published by Us will be generated by lawyers, none of it is to be construed as legal advice. The people featured in the videos (“guests”) are expressing their own advice and opinions and not the advice or opinions of their employers (should they have employers). When guests are speaking about a particular career path, unless otherwise specified, they are talking about that career path in general and not describing what it would be like to work in that career path for a specific organization such as their employer or any other firm or company. We and our guests are sharing advice based on real life experience. Whether delivered by text, pre-recorded audio or video, or live interaction (e.g. telephone, teleconferencing, video conferencing), You are by no means obligated to follow that advice, and You should always use Your reasonable judgment in evaluating any advice and its applicability to Your particular circumstances. Neither We nor Our guests can guarantee Your success, nor are We responsible or liable for any of Your actions. The same disclaimer applies to the career tests or assessments We provide access to, including but not limited to those known as the MBTI® and MBTI®Complete. These two assessments in particular have been designed to provide valuable information about Your personality and preferences. We are not responsible or liable for any actions or causes of action of any kind arising out of or incidental to Your taking any assessments to which we provide access.

We may disclose personally identifiable information collected if We have received Your express permission beforehand or in special circumstances when We believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce Our Site policies, or protect Ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
If all or part of JDCOT is sold, merged, or otherwise transferred to another entity, We may transfer Collected Information to such entity as part of that transaction.
We may share aggregated, non-personal information with third parties, advisors, advertisers, investors, or potential clients, for the purposes of business analysis or client solicitation. Aggregated information does not contain Your personally identifiable Collected Information and may be used to develop more content and services for Our Site.
HOW DO WE PROTECT INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU?
We have put in place security measures (including physical, electronic, and corporate practices) to safeguard the storage and communication of Collected Information. These security measures include but are not limited to: password protected directories and databases to safeguard Your information, and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to ensure that your information is fully encrypted and sent across the Internet securely. We use the much-trusted PayPal (https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-safety-and-security) and Stripe (https://stripe.com/docs/security/stripe) to handle financial transactions so that Your financial information is securely stored and encrypted by them. After a financial transaction on the Site, your financial information will not be stored on Our servers.
Only authorized employees are permitted access to Collected Information, and only for appropriate use such as providing service to You or managing Your account. Information is sent via encrypted channels and firewalls are in place to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access. Although We have taken these and other steps, We do not covenant or guarantee that Collected Information will always remain secure from cyber-attack or other criminal events, either at our Site or those of Our Contractors.
We provide areas within the Site that allow users to post comments and other materials. These interactive areas are intended to enhance the user experience and build a healthy community around the products and services available through the Site. JDCOT is not liable for information posted in interactive areas of the Site. Information You voluntarily post about Yourself and third parties in such areas might be accessed, collected and used by third parties other than JDCOT or Our Contractors.
THIRD PARTY LINKS
Our Site will link to other sites and We may include or offer third party products or services.
These third parties may use tracking methods, including cookies, to collect information on how You view or interact with their offers or advertisements. Unless stated otherwise, Our Site does not provide Your Collected Information to these third parties. Our Contractors are not considered third parties for purposes of this section.
LOCATION OF THIS SITE
This Site is hosted and operated in the United States. However, We and our Contractors may, in Our effort to provide the Site, store Collected Information in the United States, or We may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries.
Those who access or use the Site from jurisdictions outside the United States do so at their own choice and risk and are solely responsible for compliance with local law. If You are not a resident of the United States, You acknowledge and agree that We may collect and use personal information about You outside Your home jurisdiction, and that We may store personal information about You in the United States or elsewhere. Please note that the level of legal protection provided in the United States or other non-European countries from which You may access Our Site may not be as stringent as that under European Union privacy standards or the privacy laws of some other countries, possibly including Your home jurisdiction.
