This policy was last updated June 2, 2016.
By using the Site, you consent to (i) the collection of your personal information and (ii) the use of your personal information.
- We obtain personal information from you directly, when you submit a request for a free consultation.
- We may also dispose of and/or sell your personal information as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or similar transaction.
- With your consent, we may provide your personal information to other firms in order to refer potentially meritorious cases to attorneys licensed in other states, subject to the Rules of Professional Responsibility of those states.
- The information provided on this Site is not privileged and does not create an attorney-client relationship with Richard M. Ochroch & Associates, P.C. and/or Locks Law attorneys, nor does the transmission of an email through this website create an attorney-client relationship.
- Your use of the Site is at your own risk.
“Personal information,” as used in this policy, is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual’s name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Personal information may also include information about an individual’s activities, such as, without limitation, information about his or her activity on the Site. It may also include demographic information, such as date of birth, geographic area, and preferences, when any of this information is linked to personal information that identifies that individual.
Personal information does not include “aggregate” or other non-personally identifiable information. Aggregate information is information that we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers that is not personally identifiable or from which individual identities are removed. We may use and disclose aggregate information, and other non-personally identifiable information, for various purposes.
Passive Information We Collect About You
When you visit the Site, some information is automatically collected, such as your IP address, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Site, “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Site), the pages you navigate to on the Site, and from which you leave the Site, as well as the time you spend on the Site.
We collect this information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as “Web beacons”). We use passively-collected information to administer, operate, and improve the Site and our other services and systems, and to provide services and content that are tailored to you. If we link or associate any information gathered through passive means with personal information, we treat the combined information as Personal Information under this policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in non-personally identifiable form only.
Also, please be aware that third parties may set cookies on your hard drive or use other means of passively collecting information about your use of their services or content. We do not have access to, or control over, these third-party means of passive data collection.
Personal Information We Collect From You
We may also collect personal information from you, specifically information that you provide to us in a variety of ways on the Site. For instance, when you request a consultation, request support, or otherwise communicate with us, we collect the personal information that is provided to us. We may collect personal information such as name, address, e-mail address, city, state, country, comments, financial information, plus other demographic information, and interests and preferences in these manners. We may also save and store an html version of the page in which you submitted a request for information for compliance purposes.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may receive information about you, including personal information, from third party sources and data providers. And as a result, we may combine this information with other personal information we maintain, receive or collect about you. If we do so, this policy governs any combined information that is personally identifiable.
Please note that we do not react to “do not track” or DNT signals from your browser.
Responding to a Request by you
We shall contact you when you request a consultation.
Disclosing Your Information as a Part of a Merger, Sale or Other Transaction
Also, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed and/or sold as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or similar transaction by us, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information could be transferred and/or sold to third parties as one of our business assets.
Using Your Information to Improve our Services
In addition, we may use personal information you provide to enhance, improve, operate, and maintain our programs, services, the Site, and other systems; to prevent fraudulent use of our services; to tailor your user experience; to maintain a record of our dealings with you, and for other administrative purposes.
Disclosing Your Information to Help Operate our Services
We may disclose personal information to third-party service providers (e.g., service providers, data storage and processing facilities) that assist us in our work. We limit the personal information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions.
Disclosing Your Information if Legally Required
We may also disclose personal information if we believe that doing so is legally required or is in our interest to protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights or property of others.
Using Your Information to Aggregate Statistics
We may disclose aggregate statistics regarding user behavior as a measure of interest in, and use of, our website and e-mails to third parties in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports that do not describe or identify any individual user.
Sharing to other Firms
With your consent, we may provide your personal information to other firms in order to refer potentially meritorious cases to attorneys licensed in other states, subject to the Rules of Professional Responsibility of those states.
Unsubscribing from our communications
If you receive commercial email from us, you may unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions contained within the email. You may also opt-out from receiving commercial email from us by sending us an email or by writing to us at the address given at the end of this policy.
If you do not wish to be notified by postal mail regarding our services, you may opt-out from such communications by sending us an email or by writing to us at the address given at the end of this policy.
For your convenience, the Site may contain links to other Web sites, products, or services that we do not own or operate. If you choose to visit or use any third-party products or services, please be aware that this policy will not apply to your activities or any information you disclose while interacting with third parties.
Our Site is hosted in the United States and is generally intended for United States visitors. If you visit from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please be aware that you are transferring personal information to the United States. The United States does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and some other regions. By providing personal information to us, you consent to the transfer of it to the United States and the use of it in accordance with this policy.
We use reasonable security measures that are designed to protect personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please note, however, that no data security measures can be guaranteed to be completely effective. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information or other information. You transmit personal information to us at your own risk.
We may occasionally update this policy. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date at the end of the policy. Your continued use of the Site after such changes will be subject to the then-current policy. We encourage you to periodically review this policy to stay informed about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information.
