What Information Do We Collect?

We will collect no personal information about you when you visit the ARDC web site unless you choose to provide that information to us. When you visit the ARDC web site, read pages or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:

  • date and time you access our site;

  • pages you visit; and

  • links you used to arrive at our web site if you came from another web site, including the address of that web site.

We do not track or permanently record information about you or your visits. We use the information listed above to:

  • help us make our site more useful to visitors;

  • learn about the number of visitors to our site; and

  • develop procedures to better protect our site from damage or unauthorized use.

Do We Use "Cookies"?

We do not use “cookies,” which are files that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit a web site. Cookies are used by some other web sites to record information about you and your web site visit.

What If You Send Personal Information To Us?

The ARDC web site will allow lawyers to update their registration information, as an alternative to other means of registration. Public registration information will be available through inquiry at ARDC offices and on the ARDC web site. Public information consists of a lawyer’s full name, business address and telephone number, date of admission to the Illinois bar, and current registration status. ARDC does not allow the use of its master roll of lawyers for any commercial purposes. The master roll may be provided for uses that benefit the Courts, the profession, or the public.

What Happens When You Access Other Web Sites Through Links on this Web Site?

Our web site provides links to web sites of other agencies and organizations when we believe that the other web sites may be of interest to our visitors. This does not constitute an endorsement of those web sites. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the privacy policy and the “cookie” policy of that site.

How Do We Ensure Site Security?

We ensure that our web site remains available to all users by using a computer system that employs software programs to:

  • monitor network traffic;

  • identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information; and

  • prevent access that could otherwise cause damage to our web site.
