We will make every effort possible to ensure our conduct online stays within the spirit of the information contained herein. Please note that by visiting and using our website, or any other website owned and operated by the firm, that you accept these terms.
What information do we collect?
Every computer connected to the Web is assigned both a domain name and an IP (Internet Protocol). When a visitor requests a page from within our firm’s site, our servers automatically identify and log the request.
By itself, this information reveals nothing personal about you. The only information automatically aggregated and logged is:
- The IP address of the site, if any, that referred you;
- Your IP address;
- The web page you may have linked to us from;
- Your browser type and operating system;
- Search words or phrases passed from search engines.
There is nothing unique about the aforementioned information and the practice of collecting such data has been generally standardized by virtually every web server on the market today.
The purpose for this information is actually two-fold. One, we have found it advantageous to examine visitor traffic in aggregate form, so that we can ensure maximum compatibility for the various browsers and operating systems that visit our site. Additionally, as any business should attest, it is our desire to generate greater amounts of visitor traffic. By analyzing visitation patterns, referring URLs and search engine phrases, we can strategically enhance our exposure on the web.
What are cookies?
You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your Web browser. Normally, by accessing the browser’s help section, you can obtain information on how to prevent your browser from accepting all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept cookies, your experience at our website (and others) may be diminished.
What other information do we collect?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting surveys, adding you to our mailing list, or by your request to have someone contact you for additional information about the firm. When we request your identity, we will clearly indicate the purpose of such an inquiry before the information is requested.
We will never sell, rent, lease, or give your e-mail address to a third-party. In addition, we will never send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. You will only hear from us if you have joined our mailing list. In that case, you will be contacted with announcements and newsletters. There always will be an opt-out option, which will disable future communications from being sent.
