Personally identifying information (“PII”) is information that, alone or in combination with other PII, is sufficient to personally identify or contact you (e.g., your name, email or physical address, phone number, etc.). You are not required to provide PII in order to use the Website, although as a result of your failure to do so, you may not be able to use certain of the Website’s functions. The Burgoyne Law Group may use PII gathered by means of the Website to contact you, or to provide you with Burgoyne Law Group publications, news announcements and/or event information. You may opt out of receiving such materials at any time by contacting the Burgoyne Law Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The server hosting the Website, like most servers, may gather information of the sort that browsers routinely make available, such as your IP address, domain server, browser type, operating system, and the page from which you linked to the Website (collectively, “Traffic Data”). Likewise, the Website may use “Cookies” to collect non-personally identifying information or to otherwise enable certain of the Website’s functions. A Cookie is a string of data stored by a website on a user’s computer, and then provided to the website by the user’s browser on the user’s subsequent visits to the Website. The Burgoyne Law Group may disclose Traffic Data and information gathered using Cookies to its employees and contractors, for the purposes of maintaining the Website, determining how the Website is being used, and improving the Website for future users. The Burgoyne Law Group may also disclose Traffic Data and information gathered using Cookies in the aggregate, for example in a report summarizing the Website’s usage.
Certain of the Website’s functions may permit you to communicate with third parties, typically by forwarding designated content in the form of an email or other electronic message. The “From” line of any communication initiated using one of those functions may contain your name, email address and/or other PII provided by you in the course of sending that communication. You understand that communications sent using the Website, and any PII provided in the course of sending those communications, are not confidential, and may be disclosed by the Burgoyne Law Group, the recipients or others.
The Burgoyne Law Group has implemented and maintains reasonable safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of PII. Still, if you would like the Burgoyne Law Group to permanently delete or to modify any of your PII in the Burgoyne Law Group’s possession, please contact the Burgoyne Law Group at email@example.com.
