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 we col­lect, when and how we might use that infor­ma­tion, how we 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?

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. We don’t share any of the infor­ma­tion you pro­vide with oth­ers, unless we say so in this Pri­vacy Pol­icy, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

User-supplied infor­ma­tion: If you fill out the con­tact form on this web­site, we will ask you to pro­vide some per­sonal infor­ma­tion (such as e-mail address, name, phone num­ber and state). We only require that you pro­vide an e-mail address on the con­tact form. 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:

  • your unique Inter­net pro­to­col address;
  • the name of your unique Inter­net ser­vice provider;
  • the town/city, county/state and coun­try from which you access our 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 our website(s).

The infor­ma­tion we col­lect in web server logs helps us admin­is­ter the site, ana­lyze its usage, 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, 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. How­ever, if you pre­fer, you can set your browser to either notify you when you receive a cookie, or to refuse to accept cook­ies. You should under­stand that some fea­tures of many sites may not func­tion prop­erly if you don’t 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:

  • see what data we have about you, if any;
  • change/correct any data we have about you;
  • ask us to delete any data we have about you; and/or
  • opt out of future com­mu­ni­ca­tions from us.

If you have any addi­tional ques­tions or con­cerns about this pri­vacy pol­icy, please con­tact us via the phone num­ber, con­tact form or mail­ing address listed on this web­site. If our infor­ma­tion prac­tices change in a sig­nif­i­cant way, we will post the pol­icy changes here.
