I (hereinafter referred to as “Licensee”) am hereby granted a limited, non-assignable, non-exclusive license to the use of certain documents and materials provided by Elder Law College (hereinafter referred to as “Licensor”), for the business use of Licensee subject to the following: This license extends to all documents, visual materials, audio materials, articles and other written and/or electronic original work generated and/or owned by Licensor (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Works”) delivered by Licensor to Licensee through the Elder Law College Member Portal. This license is non-assignable by Licensee. Licensee is authorized to use the Works only for the purpose of representing clients as an attorney and for speeches, marketing or other business development efforts. Licensee may use any Works in speeches, marketing or other business development efforts for licensee’s own law practice for so long as Licensee remains a member of Elder Law College or, should the Works be legal forms for use in representing clients, then for so long as Licensee is licensed to practice law whether or not Licensee is a member of Elder Law College but so long as at least one year of membership was completed in good-standing. Works that are not legal forms used in direct representation of clients, must have attribution to “Elder Law College” in a font no smaller than one point less than the average font size used in the materials in question. To the extent any materials submitted by Licensor to Licensee are credited to someone other than Licensor or co-credited with Licensor, Licensee agrees to include proper attribution to that author and/or creator after getting any necessary permissions from that creator.. Licensee agrees to not transmit or share any of the Works with any other person, firm, company or other entity outside of the law firm in which Licensee is employed in the active practice of law whether now or in the future. Should you post any content, share or post other works or participate in a program with Elder Law College, you grant Elder Law College a non-exclusive license to use such content or other works forever and wherever and for whatever reason Elder Law College determines to be in the best interest of forwarding the interests of the organization. It is understood and agreed that nothing in the Works or other communications should be seen as rendering legal advice by Licensor to Licensee or any other person. Elder Law College is not a law firm and does not render legal advice. No member, faculty or other employee shall be seen as rendering legal advice through Elder Law College nor individually, unless by written representation agreement. No attorney-client relationship is intended or permitted between Licensor and Licensee or the clients, people and/or entities served by Licensee. Licensee agrees to use its best efforts to protect and safeguard the Works from unauthorized disclosure. Elder Law College may revoke this limited license at any time and for any reason. This Agreement is effective upon accepting the terms and conditions.

- Data Collection
How we collect personal and non-personal data
- We may collect both personal data and non-personal data from individuals who visit our websites, use our products or services, or otherwise interact with us. This is sometimes done due to website protocols, widgets and other technologies which enable use of all of the features of our website including the ELC Member Portal. Personal data means information that can reasonably be connected to a specific individual. Non-personal data means information that cannot reasonably be connected to a specific individual.
- We collect personal data from individuals who voluntarily provide such information. For example, we collect personal data including, but not limited to, names and contact information that individuals provide to us when registering for a program, using ELC services, member profile pages, purchasing, providing feedback about, or inquiring about our products or services. This information typically includes the individual’s name, title, name of company or organization, law school, year of graduation, Bar status and contact information including email addresses. When payment is submitted, we use an authorized third-party provider to collect and process payment information in a reasonably secure manner. We do not store detailed credit card or check payment information on our systems.
- We also collect personal data from our members and other organizations about third parties. For example, our members may nominate candidates for participation in ELC. Partner organizations may provide us with contact information for individuals interested in collaborating with us or our members, using our products or services, or attending an ELC event or training program. Our members and partner organizations should ensure that they have any necessary consent before providing us with personal data belonging to a third party.
- Additionally, we automatically collect personal data from users who visit any of our online resources, including our websites and mobile apps. For example, we may automatically collect visitors’ Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, the general location where the user’s computer is accessing the Internet, browser type, operating system, device type, and pages viewed.
- We also automatically collect non-personal data from visitors to our website and users of our online services, such as the average time spent on our website, number of pages viewed, information that visitors search for, and other relevant statistics. We may also collect non-personal data through offline means, such as anonymous surveys.
Can other companies collect information from individuals who use our websites and other online services?
In many cases, yes. We work with partner companies to assist in running certain aspects of our online services that require collection of personal data. For example, we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, do direct email campaigns to members and non-members, help us run surveys, and other services and these partners may collect personal data directly from users. You should carefully review the privacy statement for each product you use to determine how these third parties will use the data they collect.
Additionally, third-party companies that offer website analytics and application monitoring tools to us may gather personal and non-personal data from visitors to our websites and online services, including by using cookies. These companies may use information collected from visitors over time and across third-party websites and online services. For more information, see our cookie notice below.
Collection of data from children
We have not designed our website or any other of our online services or products for use by children, particularly young children, and do not knowingly collect personal data from young children under 16. If you are a minor under the age of 16 and have used any of our online services or products (or you are the parent of a minor under the age of 16 who has used any of our online services or products), please contact us at email@example.com so that we may undertake reasonable efforts to remove your (or your child’s) personal data from our systems.
Limiting the personal data we collect
Individuals have choices when it comes to the data they share with ELC. When we ask individuals to provide personal data, they can decline. In some instances, the use or function of a product or service may require some personal data; if you decline to provide personal data in those circumstances, you may be unable to use a product or service. In other instances, we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you; if you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract. Our cookie notice describes how you can limit what personal data we collect through automatic means.

- Fees and Costs of Membership
The Elder Law College 360° Elder Law Practice Builder Program is a prerequisite for most attorneys to enter Elder Law College. The program teaches essential Elder Law skills, ethics and law and helps to develop a shared philosophy and experience among members. There is a flat fee charged for enrollment in the program plus payments for the twelve months following enrollment. While you can cancel your membership at any time, compensation for the course requires payment of the registration fee plus the twelve monthly payments regardless of membership status.
Membership: Membership in Elder Law College is conditioned, for most attorneys, on completion of the Elder Law College 360° Elder Law Practice Builder Program. One year of membership in Elder Law College is included in your registration for that program with full benefits of Elder Law College membership. To see the benefits of Elder Law College, click here. Specific benefits change from time to time. Registrants for the Elder Law College 360° Practice Builder program, once fully paid, gain access to the Member Portal but are not considered Members of Elder Law College until completion of the program.
- Credit Card Authorization
I authorize Elder Law College, LLC to use the credit card information provided for Elder Law College Transactions, including Registration and Monthly Membership Fees. Elder Law College will not charge your credit card without authorization from you.
By accepting these terms and conditions, I hereby authorize all charges to be made to the credit card I have furnished to Elder Law College including: (1) registration for the 360 program in the amount for which I have registered and (2) monthly charges beginning the month after registration for the Elder Law College 360° Practice Builder Program. I understand that monthly charges will continue automatically for the membership category for which I have registered until twelve months of payments have been made or until I cancel whichever is later. Cancellation is effective for the calendar month following notice of cancellation.
If I am an attorney for whom registration for the Elder Law College 360° Practice Builder Program has been waived, my authorization is to start the monthly payments for the membership category for which I registered immediately upon my registration. I will not be attending and will not be charged for the Elder Law College 360° Practice Builder Program.
If I wish to discontinue my membership, I will notify the Elder Law College Accounting Department firstname.lastname@example.org of my wish to do so and the monthly charges will stop that following month.
