Online submission forms are sent to us via a secure email and read only by licensed attorneys for the purpose of providing you with a requested response. However, using the online submission form or this Site does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Any direct conversations you have with any of our attorneys are protected by the Attorney-Client privilege. This protection is only legally afforded to you if you are speaking with a licensed attorney.
What Information Do We Collect
We collect two kinds of information related to you: (a) If you submit an online submission form to us we collect Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). PII information is limited to the information you choose to include in the online submission form and submit to our attorneys.; (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”), such as the type of browser you use (e.g. Internet Explorer), web pages that you had an interest in and visited and so on. Non-PII information is collected to help us make our Site better and to enhance your experience on our Site by providing you with a faster, safer, and improved visitor experience.
(a) Personally Identifiable Information: PII includes any information you choose to provide to us, such as your name and phone number. We collect your PII, which is the information you include on the online submission form when you type in any of our Site’s submission forms and submit the information by pressing the button or when you choose to include your information in an interactive feature of our site such as a review, survey or promotion.
(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information: Non-PII is any information that does not identify you as a person including PII which has been rendered anonymous. We obtain non-PII either separately or together with your PII as described above. We collect certain non-PII from you when you access our Sites including IP addresses and information relating to your browser, operating system, ISP, the third party website from which your visit originated and how you use our Sites such as the web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.
How We Use the Information We Collect
