During the order process, you will be asked to provide Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) which includes, but is not limited to: (i) ”Contact Data” (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) ”Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code); (iii) ”Demographic Data” (such as your zip code and gender); (iv) ”Legal Data” (such as your social security number, mortgage information, automobile information, marital information, trade secrets, inventions, and/or idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate proper legal documents); and (v) "Business Information" (such as the name you want your business entity to have, a brief description of the purpose of your business, the name and address of the corporation or LLC’s registered agent, the name and address of the directors and officers of your corporation, or members or managers for your LLC, how many shares of stock your corporation will be authorized to issue, and the par value of such stock.
Your PII will be used by us to prepare documents that will be submitted to the filing agency in the jurisdiction you designate.

If you have questions about which PII will become part of the public record, please contact us Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Pacific Time) at 888-595-2747.

What is a Cookie?
Cookies are a feature of web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized. If you do not wish to transmit “cookie” information about yourself, you may turn off the cookie function in your web browser; please consult the “Help” section of your browser to correctly do so.
How Do We Use the Information Collected?
Broadly speaking, persons we employ directly, or as contractors or agents at our direction use PII for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer services such as support, and making available other products or services we think may be of interest to our users. We may use PII you provide to us to contact you about changes to our site, new services, features or products we offer, or other information we think you shall find valuable. If at any time you do not wish to receive such information, you may “opt-out” of doing so by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow up to seven business days to be completely removed.
We gather information about our users also to enhance and design our site to make it easier, faster, and friendlier to use.

Sharing Information with Advertisers or Other Third Parties
We may disclose to advertisers on our site anonymous information about user habits, characteristics, and patterns, based on aggregate user statistics. The parties who perform services for us (e.g., credit card processors, merchant banks, our Internet Service Provider) may also have access to your PII in order to perform such services. Should we sell assets of our company, another company may need to review our company’s assets, including your PII, to make business decisions as to whether to acquire such assets.
We value your privacy, and we will never sell your PII to a third party solicitor. However, there will be times when it will be necessary to share minimal PII to third parties. Third parties include government filing agencies and filing correspondents that are directly involved with completing your order.
Sharing Information with the Government or As Otherwise Required by Law
We may be required by subpoena, law, or a government agency to disclose the PII you have provided to us.
