Privacy Policy

MediaLaw.org, the website for the Media Law Resource Center (“MLRC”), is a forum for sharing news, information and resources about media law.  Additionally, some members receive MLRC’s MediaLawDaily and other publications by e-mail or links sent via e-mail.  Because MLRC understands that your privacy is important to you, MLRC has established this privacy policy to explain what information is collected and how it is used. This Privacy Statement is effective July 31, 2012.

Information Gathered by MLRC
