While using our site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. This personally identifiable information may include (but is not limited to) your name, address, and contact information.

Like many website operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our site. Examples of information we collect in this manner may include (but are not limited to) the following:

In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor, and analyze this data.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored on a user’s computer. They hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, allowing the server to customize a page for a particular user, or remember user information from one site visit to the next.

Like most websites, our site uses cookies to collect information about site users. You can change your browser settings to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of this site.

Communications

We may use your information to contact you by email or other means to deliver newsletters, marketing/promotional materials, or other information that we think you may find relevant.

Sharing of Information

We will not allow any unaffiliated parties to access your information, except as follows:

  • Agents, website vendors, and contractors may use it in connection with their professional relationship with us.
  • If we are unable to assist you in a matter but know of an unaffiliated attorney or firm that may be able to help, we may refer you to them and share your information with that party.
  • We may share your information with authorities, as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy.
  • In the event of a transfer of our business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another firm), we may share your information as needed with the acquiring entity.
  • We may share your information if we have a reasonable belief that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is absolutely secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized users will never be able to defeat our security measures and access your information.
