INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect various types of information about our users. We collect information because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our services and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your information helps us keep you posted on the latest announcements, updates, and events that you might like to hear about. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our site.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as registering for marketing e-mails, completing contact forms, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums or other public areas, filling out a survey, downloading content, or sending us feedback, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. We may also ask for your personal information when you’re discussing a service on the phone, requesting a consultation, or engaging with our social media accounts.
It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. However, if you elect to engage in these activities, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personally identifiable information. When paying for services on the Website, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
Information transmitted on the internet, including via the contact forms on our website, is not secure and should not be considered confidential. The submission of a form on our website does not constitute attorney-client communication and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
Our website may also provide a third-party “Chat” feature, with which you can choose to provide personal information. The information provided on the Chat feature or contact form is not confidential, and your use of the Chat feature and contact form does not constitute an attorney-client communication and does not create an attorney-client relationship. If you choose to provide us with personal information by using the Chat feature or contact form, we may use that information to contact you back and to improve subsequent communications with you.
Do not disclose confidential information, including any information that may expose you to civil or criminal liability, via Chat or contact forms on the Website.
We may retain information collected from the contact form and Chat feature indefinitely, or to the extent permissible by law.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. The URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. The IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the internet.
We may obtain information about you from other sources, such as public databases, joint marketing partners, social media platforms (such as Facebook), as well as from other third parties. Examples of the information we receive from other sources include: social media profile information (your name, gender, birthday, e-mail, current city, state and country, user identification numbers for your contacts, profile picture URL, and any other information that you choose to make public); marketing leads and search results and links, including paid listings (such as sponsored links).
