How we use your information
The Firm uses information you provide to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. This data enables us to become more familiar with which people visit our site, how often they visit, and what parts of the site they visit most often. The lawyer or firm uses this information to improve its Web-based offerings. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part. With the exception of vendors providing hosting, database management and development services related to the operation of these websites, we will not disclose, sell or rent any of your identifiable personal information to any third party unless approved by you or required by law.

We may use “cookies”—small files that the site places on your hard drive for identification purposes to track user preferences. These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us. Some parts of the site may also use cookies to track user traffic patterns. The firm does this in order to
determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

Please note that cookies cannot read data off of your hard drive. Your Web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, By not accepting cookies, some pages may not fully

Our commitment to data security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, the Firm uses commercially appropriate technology and procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Unfortunately, no information transmitted via the Internet is completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your
information, we will use commercially reasonable security measures to try to prevent unauthorized access. Again, however, no security measure is absolute. Our Firm is not liable for any damage or loss resulting from disclosure of information that you choose to provide through our website.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your personal information is never shared outside the lawyer or firm without your permission, except under conditions where you have consented to share your information to a third party service provider working on our behalf to serve you; you are requiring us to provide you with a product or service; or if firm is required to do so by law, or in urgent circumstances, to protect personal safety, the public or our sites.

Links to Third Party Sites
This site may contain links to other sites. The lawyer or firm does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

Our commitment to children’s privacy
We do not seek to collect or maintain information on our website from those we know are under age 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under age 13.
