Effective date: November 29, 2022
We understand the importance of your privacy, and strive to take all reasonable efforts to be transparent about what information we collect about you and to safeguard that information against intrusion or misuse. Except as required by a court or other lawful order, we will never re-distribute or sell personal information collected on our web servers.
Information Collected and How It Is Used
We collect two types of information from our visitors: anonymous information and personal information.
You do not have to provide any personal information to use many of the features of this website. However, your web browser or application may automatically provide certain information about you (“anonymous information”), such as your IP address, which may include your geographic location; details about browser software, operating system, and device; access dates and times; and referring and exiting URLs.
We use this information, both individually and in the aggregate, to help us understand how visitors use our site and to improve our content and your experience visiting our site. We may retain this type of information indefinitely, or to the extent permissible by law.
Personal Identifiable Information
Our website contains certain features, such as contact forms, where you have the option to affirmatively provide information about yourself (“personal identifiable information” or PII). You may be asked to provide PII, including your name, address, email address, and telephone number(s). You have no obligation to use these features of our website. If you choose to provide us with personal information by submitting a contact form on this website, we may use that information to contact you back and to improve subsequent communications with you, if any. We may also use your voluntarily submitted personal information to keep you informed of law firm news and events, but only if you are provided the opportunity to opt out of that type of use (see Removal of Information and Opting Out section, below). We will seek your affirmative consent before using your personal information for any purpose other than those described in this policy.
We collect no PII about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. You may choose not to contact us by e-mail, participate in a survey, or provide any PII using an on-line form. Your choice not to participate in these activities will not impair your browsing of the this website, nor will it preclude you from reading or downloading any information provided on our website.
E-mail is not a secure medium. Personally identifiable information sent via the Internet can be intercepted. You may, therefore, wish to reconsider the advisability of sending messages that contain sensitive, personal information to e-mail addresses on this website.
Information transmitted on the internet, including via the contact forms on our website, should not be considered confidential. The submission of a form on our website does not constitute attorney–client communication, and does not create an attorney–client relationship.
Sensitive data such as information related to ethnic origin, religious beliefs, mental or physical health, sexual orientation, citizenship status, genetic/biometric data, and the personal data of minors – can only be collected and processed if users provide their consent through an opt-in process.
Do not disclose confidential information, including any information that may expose you to civil or criminal liability, via contact forms on this website.
We may retain information collected from contact forms indefinitely, or to the extent permissible by law.
We will not use the data you voluntarily provide to us by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form in violation of federal anti-discrimination laws.
Distribution of Collected Information
We will not disclose, without your consent, personal information collected about you, unless we are required to do so by law. We will not distribute or sell personal information to third-party organizations.
Do Not Track Requests
We do not respond or otherwise take any action with regard to “Do Not Track” requests.
Third Parties and External Links
Some pages on our website may contain hyperlinks to websites of third parties. We take no responsibility for third-party content or websites, nor for any information you disclose to third parties by visiting their websites.
Removal of Information and Opting Out
Users seeking to opt out of the processing of personal data for targeted advertising purposes and receiving communications from the firm may reply to any marketing communication with the subject line “unsubscribe.”
