Collection and Use of Information
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.
Our website contains certain features, such as contact forms, where you have the option to affirmatively provide information about yourself (“personal information”). You may be asked to provide personal information, 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 you may opt out of these contacts if you wish (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.
Information transmitted on the internet, including via the contact forms on our website, is not secure and 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. Furthermore, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, that information may be collected and used by others. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
Our website also may provide a third-party “Live Chat” feature, with which you can choose to provide personal information to the firm. Information provided on the Live Chat feature is not confidential, and your use of Live Chat does not constitute attorney–client communications and does not create an attorney–client relationship. If you choose to provide us with personal information by using the Live Chat feature, we may use that information to contact you back and to improve subsequent communications with you, if any.
Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission. Do not disclose confidential information, including any information that may expose you to civil or criminal liability, via contact forms or Live Chat on this website. We may retain information collected from contact forms and Live Chat indefinitely, or to the extent permissible by law.
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. In certain limited circumstances, and in compliance with applicable laws, we may share personal information with government authorities or others as required to protect the firm or certain third parties; or as otherwise required for compliance with applicable law or legal process. 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 receiving communications from the firm may reply to any marketing communication with the subject line “unsubscribe.”
