    Use of Cookies
  • A "cookie" is a small text file that a Web site can place on your computer's hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online "shopping cart" to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the Web site's computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Most consumers do not know that "cookies" are being placed on their computers when they visit Web sites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a Web site attempts to place a "cookie" on your computer.
  • Cookies may be used when necessary to complete a transaction. Certain services, such as MyMTCLE use cookies to enhance the user experience and avoid multiple login/password authentication.

    Voluntary Personal Information Submission

  • MT CLE may ask for your e-mail address in order to process various applications or transactions available its website - for example, MyMTCLE Online Transcript Accounts, Internet Services, email subscriptions or online transactions.
  • When you use MT CLEs online payment services and pay by credit card, MT CLE asks for the cardholder's name, address, account number, and card expiration date.
    All of these activities are purely voluntary. You will always have the option of whether to perform the transaction and provide this information.

  • Exchange of information is in accordance with the rules and regulations for the administration of continuing legal education in Montana.

    Public Disclosure
  • MT CLE already maintains, or may acquire, personally identifiable information through its normal regulatory functions.
  • As the Supreme Court Regulatory Agency for continuing legal education, MT CLE is required to maintain many documents for archival and historical purposes; however, it does not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to you or for other purposes required by law.
  • When you provide personally identifiable information to MT CLE, such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to an Administrative Court office, and subject to the laws, regulations, practices, and procedures of the respective agency.
