We are committed to protecting your privacy. The policies below explain how we maintain a high level of security for our viewers. The following discloses the information collection, use and disclosure practices for this domain. This policy does not address information obtained offline.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When you are browsing our website you do so anonymously. The only personal information we collect is that which is provided to us by you. We do collect information about the computer and browser you are using to view our site, but this information is limited to which pages you access and your IP address (a number automatically assigned to your computer.) This information is used by our firm to learn more about the needs and traffic patterns of our viewers.
To the extent you use forms, chats and e-mail links via the website, or call us via phone to communicate with us or anyone affiliated with us and provide us with personally identifiable information, however, you will not remain anonymous. Because it is impossible to predict every conceivable context in which such information might be provided to us via e-mail, we can provide you no assurance that personally identifiable information you choose to provide to us via e-mail will be maintained as private.
We collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. The IP address data that we collect does not contain any personally identifiable information about you and is used to administer our site, to determine the numbers of different visitors to the site and to gather demographic data. However, when you submit information via this website, that information becomes identifiable and is kept on record as having come from your IP address. This information may be used to identify you on subsequent visits to this site, and to other sites associated with it, and to personalize your user experience.
The non-personally identifiable data that this website collects is accessible by certain firm personnel as well as certain third-party Web site designers and personnel involved with the third-party service that hosts the Web site. We use all non-personally identifiable data that we collect internally and together with our Web site designer and host in order to improve the Web site. The information is used, for example, to evaluate what portions of the Web site are more popular than others, to determine where visitors to the site came from, and to determine how many times and how often particular pages of the site were accessed. We may use the data to prepare reports regarding Web site activity as part of the process of maintaining and improving the site.
WHAT STEPS DO WE TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY?
To the extent permitted by law, we will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose any of the information collected online without your express permission.
We offer our clients the ability to e-mail their attorneys to inquire about their case and to offer additional information regarding their case. This form of communication has been judged to be no different than traditional mail. Therefore, the same attorney/client privileges that are provided for traditional mail, phone calls, and face-to-face meetings apply to e-mail communications as well. However, because e-mail communications are not 100% secure, our clients should know that when they provide information in an e-mail, they do so at their own risk.
WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN’S PRIVACY?
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any children under age 13.
IS DATA STORAGE AND PROCESSING CONDUCTED IN THE UNITED STATES?
Regardless of where you are located, the site collects information and processes and stores that information in databases located in the United States.
Our Firm welcomes questions and comments about this website and about this policy. Contact us through our website, or you can reach us by telephone at the number posted on our website.
