What personal information is collected through this website and how is it used?

We collect information  about our users in three ways: directly  from the user, from our Web server logs and through cookies. We use the  information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience  that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant  and helpful to you.

Further,  if chat is available through this site, you may be asked to provide information  if you participate in an online chat. 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.

Information that you  provide to us through the contact form or an online chat will be used so that we  may respond to your inquiry. We may also use information you provide to us to  communicate with you in the future. If you do not wish to receive such  communications, you may opt out (unsubscribe) as described below.

Web server logs: When you visit our  website, we may track information about your visit and store that information  in web server logs, which are records of the activities on our sites. The servers  automatically capture and save the information electronically. Examples of the  information we may collect include:

Cookies: In order to offer and  provide a customized and personal service, our websites and applications may  use cookies to store and help track information about you. Cookies are simply  small pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored  on your computer’s hard drive. We use cookies to help remind us who you are and  to help you navigate our sites during your visits. Cookies allow us to save  passwords and preferences for you so you won’t have to re-enter them each time  you visit.

The  use of cookies is relatively standard. Most browsers are initially set up to  accept cookies.

How is personal information protected?

We take certain appropriate  security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental  loss and from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot  guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security  measures.

Who has access to the information?

We  will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other user data to others, and  we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated  parties, except as follows:

  • to agents, website vendors and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their relationship with us;
  • if we are unable to assist with your matter, but know an unaffiliated attorney or firm that may be able to help you, we may refer you and share information you provided us with that party; and
  • as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of our business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another firm or if we are liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings), or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.

How can I correct, amend or  delete my personal information and/or opt out of future communications?

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any  time. Contact us via the phone number,  contact form or mailing address on our website at any time to:
