Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to information collected online from users of this website. In this policy, you can learn what kind of information I collect, when and how I might use that information, how I protect the information, and the choices you have with respect to your personal information.


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


I collect information about my website users in three ways: directly from the user, from my web server logs, and through cookies. I use this 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. I do not share any of the information you provide with others, unless I say so in this Privacy Policy, or when I believe in good faith that the law requires it.


User-supplied information


If, after reading the legal disclaimer, you submit a message on the contact form on my contact, I will receive your message via email. I only require that you provide your email address to email me. Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive information. Sensitive information includes any personally identifiable details such as your Social Security Number, date of birth, drivers license number, credit card, bank account, or other financial information. If you submit any sensitive information, you do so at your own risk and I will not be liable to you or responsible for the consequences of your submission. 


Information that you provide me through email will only be used so that I may respond to your inquiry. I may also use information you provide me 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 my website, I may track information about your visit and store that information in web server logs, which are records of the activities on my site. The servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. Examples of the information I may collect include:

  • Your unique Internet protocol address;
  • The name of your unique Internet service provider;
  • The town/city, county/state and country from which you access my website;
  • The kind of browser or computer you use;
  • The number of links you click within the site;
  • The date and time of your visit;
  • The web page from which you arrived to our site;
  • The pages you viewed on the site; and
  • Certain searches/queries that you conducted via the site.

The information I collect in my web server logs helps me administer the site, analyze its usage, and protect the website and its content from inappropriate use and improve the user's experience.​​


Cookies


In order to offer and provide a customized and personal service, my website and applications may use cookies and similar technologies 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. Cookies to help my site remember who you are and to help you navigate it during your visits. Cookies also can also remember where visitors go on a website and save preferences so you won't have to re-enter them each time you visit. The use of cookies is relatively standard. Most internet browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can use your browser to either notify you when you receive a cookie or to disable cookies.


If you wish to disable cookies from this site, you can do so using your browser. You should understand that some features of many sites may not function properly if you do not accept cookies.

Third-party Services


I may use services hosted by third parties, including Adobe Site Catalyst, to assist in providing our services and to help me understand the use of my site by its visitors. These services may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including your IP address or cookies. If these third-party services collect information, they do so anonymously and in the aggregate to provide information helpful to us such as website trends, without identifying individual visitors.


In addition, I may use services provided by third parties to display relevant content, products, services and advertising to you. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect or receive information from this website and elsewhere on the internet. They may then use that information to provide measurement services so I can understand your interests and retarget advertisements based on your previous visits to this website. Please keep in mind that I do not share your personal information with any third-party advertiser, ad server, or ad network.


You may be able to opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting by some third parties by visiting www.aboutads.info/choices. You can opt out of Google's use of cookies by visiting Google's Ad Settings. You can also opt out of AdRoll's and their partners' targeted advertising. Please see "Cookies" in the section above for more information on how you can control the use of cookies on your computer.


​​California Do Not Track


My web services do not alter, change, or respond upon receiving Do Not Track (DNT) requests or signals in browsers. As described in more detail above, I track user activity using web server logs, cookies and similar technologies. Information collected in my web server logs helps me analyze website usage and improve the user's experience. Cookies allow me to offer you a customized experience and present relevant advertising to you.


How is personal information protected?


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


Who has access to the information?


I will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other user data to others, and I 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 my behalf or in connection with their relationship with me;
  • If I am unable to assist with your matter, but know an unaffiliated attorney or firm that may be able to help you, I may refer you and share information you provided me with that party; and
  • As required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of my business assets (for example, if my firm is acquired by another firm or if my firm is liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings), or if I believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect my 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 me at any time. You may contact me to:

  • See what data I have about you, if any;
  • Change/correct any data I have about you;
  • Ask me to delete any data I have about you; and/or
  • Opt out of future communications from me.​
