Privacy Policy

The Burgoyne Law Group respects your right to protect and control your personal information.

This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) governs the Burgoyne Law Group’s use and disclosure of information gathered by means of this website (the “Website”). By using the Website, you acknowledge that you understand the Privacy Policy, and that you agree to be bound by it. The Privacy Policy may change from time to time. You should therefore refer to the Privacy Policy every time you use the Website. Each time you use the Website, the then-current version of the Privacy Policy will apply, although absent your expressed consent, the use and disclosure of information already in the Burgoyne Law Group’s possession will be governed by the version of the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information was gathered.

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 info@burgoynelawgroup.com.

The Burgoyne Law Group may disclose PII gathered by means of the Website to third parties as necessary to perform certain of the Website’s functions, provided that those third parties have agreed to treat such PII as set forth in this Privacy Policy. The Burgoyne Law Group may also disclose PII to third parties: (1) as required by law, including upon receipt of a subpoena or court order; (2) upon your expressed consent; (3) in connection with your use of the Website to communicate with third parties (see below); and (4) as reasonably necessary to protect the business interests, property or other rights of the Burgoyne Law Group, or to protect personal or public safety. In the event of an acquisition of the Burgoyne Law Group’s assets by, or merger of the Burgoyne Law Group with, another business, the Burgoyne Law Group may transfer your PII to that business, provided that such business agrees to treat your PII in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

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 Website may contain links to third-party websites. The Burgoyne Law Group does not have control over those third-party websites, each of which may have its own unique privacy policy and practices. Before using a third-party website, you should familiarize yourself with its privacy policy and practices, including as relate to PII and Cookies. Most browsers can be set so as to reject Cookies, although certain functions of the Website and other websites may not work properly without Cookies.

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 info@burgoynelawgroup.com.
