Who we share your data with

We only share your information: (1) internally, as necessary to service you if you are our client or prospect; and (2) with marketing partners without sharing your personal information, typically utilizing services like Google Ads, Facebook Ads, and the like.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

We do not share your contact information without your permission.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Any personally identifying information that you provide is retained on our internal networks or company approved third-party servers (for storage and processing purposes only). We do not share such information with any third-parties, unless we obtain specific permission from you first.

What data breach procedures we have in place

We currently utilize a third-party Manager, which uses 128-bit encryption to store all of our client and matter information. If we detect a data breach on our end, we will attempt to inform you as soon as possible. We will not be responsible for any data breaches by any third-party that we may work with now or in the future.
