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 is collected, when and how that information might be used, how the information is protected and the choices you have with respect to your personal information.

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

Information is collected about users in three ways: directly from the user, from my Web server logs, and through cookies. The information is used primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. The information you provide is not shared with others unless this Privacy Policy says so, or when there is a good faith belief that the law requires it.

User-supplied information: If you fill out the “contact” form on this website, you will be asked to provide some personal information (such as email, address, name, phone number and state). It is only required that you provide an email address on the contact form. Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary, or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; driver’s license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at our own risk and I will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.

Information that you provide through the contact form or an online chat will be used for a response to your inquiry. Information you provide may also be used for a response to your inquiry. Information you provide may also be used 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, information about your visit may be tracked and stored 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 that may be collected 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 my site;
  • The pages you viewed on the site, and;
  • Certain searches/queries that you conducted via my websites(s)

The information collected in web server logs helps to 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, 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 are used to help remind who you are and to help you navigate my site during your visits. Cookies also can tell where visitors go on a website and allow preferences to be saved 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 don’t accept cookies. For more information about using browsers to manage cookies, please see All About Cookies. You can also refuse to accept Flash cookies from this website using Adobe’s Flash Management tools. You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google’s Ad Settings. By visiting this website, you consent to the use of cookies and similar technologies in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Third-Party Services: Services hosted by third parties, including Adobe Site Catalyst, may be used to assist in providing my services and to help me understand the use of my site by my 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 me such as website trends, without identifying individual visitors. In addition, services provided by third parties may be used 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. Please keep in mind that your personal information is not shared 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 visit this page to 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: These 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, user activity is tracked using web server logs, cookies and similar technologies. Information collected in web server logs helps to analyze website usage and improve the user's experience.

How is personal information protected?

Certain appropriate security measures are taken to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, it cannot be guaranteed that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat these security measures.

Who has access to the information?

Mailing lists or other user data tools will not be sold, rented or leased to others, and your personal information will not be made 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, with your agreement 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 I am acquired by another firm or if I am 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. Contact me via the phone number, contact form, or mailing address on my website at any time 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.

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