Privacy Policy/Cookies

Update Summary October 10, 2012 – We have updated our Privacy Policy to clarify our online collection of information (e.g., automatic collection of user Internet Protocol address and versions of hardware and software) and sharing of information with service providers to us. We made other minor changes to improve the internal consistency of the policy language.

This is the Privacy Policy for the web site of the Boadwee Law Office, our blog and other internet-enabled resources, such as email (collectively, the “Sites”). See Contact Us for our contact address and telephone numbers.

We collect (a) the names, e-mail and physical addresses and telephone and fax numbers of those who communicate with us via physical mail, email or telephone; (b) information volunteered by users of the Sites, such as by completing and submitting our online forms, and by others who communicate with us; (c) the Internet Protocol address, hardware/ software versions (e.g., version of browser and operating system) and/or referring URL of those who submit our online forms or email us; and (d) aggregate information concerning users of the Sites, such as the pages of the Sites they access or visit, page view or click-through information, the search terms they use in connection with the Sites, the URL’s from which they linked to the Sites, their Internet Protocol addresses, and the versions of their hardware/software. By using any of the Sites or communicating with us, you consent to our collection and use of this information.

The information we collect is used by us to administer the Sites, to contact and communicate with users of the Sites and clients for marketing of legal and related services, and if we are engaged, to provide legal and related services.

The Sites may include links, listings and references to other web sites and resources that we do not control. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices, content, or functionality of such web sites and resources. We do not use any ad server company to display ads on our principal web site (www.BoadweeLaw.com) or blog, but other web sites and resources may contain advertising that we do not control.

We may place and read cookies on your browser with respect to the Sites. We would use them to store information, such as your personal preferences, and to provide features enabling you to login to make comments or perform other activities. Also, third party service providers may place and read cookies on your browser, or use web beacons to collect information in connection with the Sites.

You can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent, but cookies may be necessary for some web site features or services to function or function properly.

We may share personal and/or aggregate information (a) if we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to comply with any law, regulation or order, such as subpoena, court order or search warrant; (b) with third party vendors, service providers and others as necessary to operate and maintain the Sites and provide legal and related services and/or for them to provide services to us; and/or (c) in the event all or any relevant portion of the business or assets of the Boadwee Law Office is transferred to, acquired by or merged with any third party.

If our information practices change, we will post the policy changes on our principal web site (www.BoadweeLaw.com). If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our principal web site periodically.

Upon written request, we provide users of the Sites and clients with access to the following information that we may maintain about them, subject to applicable law: their contact information (e.g., name, email and physical address, phone number) and a summary of any other information that we may maintain about them, and for clients, their unique identifier information (e.g., client number), transaction information (e.g., dates of services rendered and charges due), and financial information (e.g., payment account information). Upon written request, we offer users of the Sites and clients the ability to have inaccuracies corrected in such information, subject to applicable law.
