The Firm does not collect any personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily choose to submit or otherwise disclose such information to us.
How Information is Collected
The Firm collects personal information from you when you send us an email containing personal information. In addition, we may collect non-personally identifiable information when you visit the website, including, but not limited to browser type, operating system, and the domain name of your internet service provider.
How We Use the Information Collected
We may use the information provided to respond to an e-mail or other inquiry or request. We may also combine this aggregate information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify the preferences or interests of users of the website.
How Do I Correct or Update My Personal Information?
If your personal information has changed or is incorrect, please notify us by sending an email to us at email@example.com.
The website is intended for adults and is not directed to children under age 13. The Firm does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under age 13, please do not provide personally identifiable information of any kind. If the Firm learns that it has obtained personally identifiable information about a child under 13, the Firm will delete that information from its existing files.
Sharing and Transfer of Personal Information
The Firm will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third parties, but we may share your personal information with service providers we retained to perform services on our behalf. We do not authorize service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform these services or comply with applicable law. Further, we disclaim responsibility for inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of such information by these service providers. In addition, we may disclose information in following instances: (i) where you expressly authorize us to disclose; (ii) where we are required to disclose by law or legal process; (iii) where we reasonably believe disclosure is necessary to protect our property or assert our legal rights; or (iv) we reasonably determine disclosure is necessary to protect the property or safety of any other person.
How We Protect Personal Information
We maintain safeguards designed to protect against the loss, misuse, disclosure, or destruction of all personal information we collect from our website. However, since no data transmission is 100% secure, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information you provide through the website. You do so at your own risk. The Firm will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.
