The Appellate Law Firm recognizes that you may be concerned about our use and disclosure of your personal information. Your privacy is very important to me, and the following will inform you of the information that I, The Appellate Law Firm, may collect from you, and how it is used. By using my Web site, www.theappellatelawfirm.com, you are accepting the practices described in this policy.
I may collect non-personal information, such as a domain name and IP Address. The domain name and IP address reveals nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed my site. I may also collect information about the type of Internet browser you are using, operating system, what brought you to my Website, as well as which of my Web pages you have accessed.
Additionally, if you communicate with me regarding my Web site or my services, I will collect any information that you provide to me in any such communication.
I use the collected information primarily for my own internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving my services and Web site, fulfilling requests for information, and providing customer support.
I follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to me, both during transmission and once I receive it.
If I collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to me in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While I use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which I store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
I use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help me improve your access to my site and identify repeat visitors to my site. For instance, when I use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on my site. Cookies can also enable me to track and target the interests of the users to enhance the experience on my site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on my site.
I will not sell or otherwise provide the information I collect to outside third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect mass email marketing.
I will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on my company, protect and defend the rights or property of my Web site and related properties. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the my Web site or its related properties. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion boards, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage the users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time my site may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
