Privacy Policy

The firm respects your privacy and is committed to collecting, maintaining, and using your personal information responsibly.  Set out below is our Privacy Policy, which applies to your use of this website.

Information You Provide to Us. If you submit personal information to us through this website, we will use that information for the purpose for which it was collected (such as to send requested publications to you) and also for other purposes we determine are appropriate.  Please remember that, as noted in the Terms of Use above, you should not transmit any unsolicited confidential information to us.

Information We Collect About You. When you visit this website we may collect certain information about you or about your use of this website, and this information does not allow us to identify you without referencing other information.  This information might include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your web browser software and the version of that software, the operating system of your device, the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from this website (including date and time), the pages you viewed, the duration of your visits to certain pages, your location information, and information collected from "cookies" (see below).

Cookies.  We use files commonly known as "cookies" on this website.  A cookie is a data file placed on the hard drive of your device that records information about a user and transmits that information to servers that recognize them.  Cookies might be used, for example, to measure a visitor's behavior on a website.  You may be able to change the settings of your web browser software to disable cookies or to adjust how your web browser software accepts, stores, or deletes cookies.

Sharing of Your Information.  We may share your personal information with third parties in one or more of the following ways:

  • Third party service providers, such as website hosts:  We use third parties to operate, maintain, and host this website.  These third parties may have access to your personal information submitted through this website consistent with the operation, maintenance, and hosting of this website.
  • Successor organizations: If the firm undergoes a business transition (such as a merger or acquisition) then we may transfer your personal information to the successor organization in that transaction.  If material changes to the firm's privacy practices occur as a result of any such business transition, then we, or the successor organization, will post a notice on this website or on the website of the successor organization.
  • Analytics and Search Engine Providers:  We may disclose your personal information to analytics services (such as Google Analytics) and to search engine providers in each case that assist us in improving and organizing this website.

In addition to the above, the firm reserves the right to disclose your personal information as permitted or required by law (including any rule, regulation, subpoena, information request, or other legal process).  This includes disclosing your personal information in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government authorities, or when we believe disclosure is reasonably necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss in connection with an investigation of suspected illegal activity.

We do not share or sell personally identifiable information to third parties for their commercial marketing purposes.

Security.  No website or Internet transmission is complete secure, and the firm cannot guarantee that this website will never be subject to data loss, unauthorized access, hacking, or other breaches.  You therefore are generally advised to take appropriate action to maintain the security of your personal information.

Transferring, Processing, and Storing of Personal Information. You consent to the firm transmitting your information to, and processing and storing your personal information in, the United States and you understand that the laws of the United States governing data protection, privacy, and similar matters might differ from, or might be less protective than, the laws of the jurisdiction of which you are a resident or in which you reside or from where you visit this website.

How to Access and Amend Your Information.  Upon our receipt of your written request, and subject to any applicable exemptions, we will grant you reasonable access to personal information that we maintain about you.  Similarly, if you request that we amend your personal information, we will do so within a reasonable time after our receipt of your receipt.  Please note, however, that any request to be granted access to, or to amend, your information may be subject to a reasonable fee to reimburse the firm the costs and expenses it incurs in accommodating your request.

Please also note that if we amend your personal information at your request, then after such amendment we continue to have the right to store and otherwise maintain in our archives all personal information collected from, or submitted by, you through this website (including personal information which that is no longer in active use due to its amendment), and to use and disclose such personal information for certain purposes permitted or required by applicable laws, including as we deem necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, to enforce our rights, or to protect the safety and security of this website or other users.

Minors.  This website is not directed to or intended for the use of children under the age of 13, and the firm does not knowingly collect personal information from such children.  If you are a child under the age of 13 you should not use this website, and you should not provide us with any personal information.  If we learn that we have collected personal information from any child under the age of 13, we will use reasonable efforts to erase that information from our records.

Changes to this Privacy Policy.  The firm reserves the right to amend, modify, supplement, or replace this Privacy Policy at any time, and your use of this website after any such amendment, modification, supplement, or replacement constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy as so amended, modified, supplemented, or replaced.
