This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you access or use the Remote Legal online court reporting platform, located at, including without limitation any mobile applications, software integrations, or add-ins offered by Remote Legal (the “Platform”), as well as all features, content, products, and services, and any and all transcripts, certifications, or other work product provided by Remote Legal or its subcontractors (all of which, including the Platform and the Services, are hereinafter referred to collectively as the “Services”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

This policy applies to information we collect on the Platform and in the course of providing Services associated with the Platform, including but not limited to the collection of payment information.

It does not apply to information collected by:

By accessing or using the Services, you agree to both this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use associated with the Platform. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Policy).

Children Under the Age of 18.

Our Services are not intended for children under 18 years of age. No one under age 18 may provide any information to or on the Platform without the express written permission of their parent or guardian and indemnification of same. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If you are under 18, do not use or provide any information on the Platform or through any of its features, register on the Platform, or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use.

If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at

Children who may be a participant in a legal proceeding may only use the Services or provide information on the Platform with express parent or legal guardian consent. Agents, representatives, counselors, attorneys, guardians, and executors are responsible for obtaining parent or legal guardian consent on behalf of any minor child(ren) using the Services or providing information on the Platform in connection with such agent’s, representative’s, counselor’s, attorney’s, guardian’s, or executor’s use of the Services, as provided by the Platform’s Terms of Use.

Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It.

The primary purpose of the Platform is to perform remote, stenographic and non-stenographic, digital or live court reporting services in the course of a legal dispute, suit, arbitration, mediation, deposition, interview, proceeding, hearing, or other legal matter (each, a “Proceeding”). Information about you and/or your Proceeding (including “off the record” discussions) is being collected on the Platform from the time you log in until the time you and, if applicable, all other users and digital reporters participating in your Proceeding log out.

Information Collected During a Proceeding.

Remote Legal may collect personal information about you and others (“Personal Information) by auditory, visual, textual, and/or other means in the course of performing its role as a neutral, third-party transcription and court reporting service. Remote Legal has no control over the information that may be collected during a Proceeding because the Services are primarily designed to record the testimony and exhibits presented by parties to a Proceeding.

Remote Legal stores all information collected during a Proceeding in a secure, encrypted cloud environment that meets all industry standards for information security. Remote Legal follows the National Court Reporters Association Code of Professional Ethics or the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers Code of Professional Ethics, as applicable. As such, Remote Legal treats any information collected in the course of a Proceeding as confidential, and, except where otherwise disclosed in this privacy policy and Remote Legal’s terms of use, Remote Legal does not share that information with any individual or entity not involved in a Proceeding unless legally required to do so.

Audio-visual recording of a Proceeding begins when the digital reporter enters the Proceeding and continues until the Proceeding concludes. The audio-visual recording period includes the time immediately before and after the formal beginning and end of a Proceeding, as well as “off the record” discussions during a Proceeding. Information collected before and after the formal beginning and end of a Proceeding or during “off the record” discussions is not included in the transcript of a Proceeding.

By participating in a Proceeding, you agree that the information you share in that Proceeding may be disseminated to the other parties involved, to their representatives, or to individuals or entities in attendance at the Proceeding.

The information we collect about you could include your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, social security number, driver’s license number, internet protocol (IP) address, financial information, biometric data, or other sensitive personal information.
