We respect the privacy of our website’s users. This notice is intended to inform users of our practices regarding information collection, security, third parties and other related topics. This notice applies only to this website.
Our practices are in keeping with industry standards. We take issues of privacy and security seriously. We also caution users that all online correspondence should be done with caution, as these forms of communication are to some degree inherently unsecure. When corresponding with our team through email or any other form of online communication, do not disclose sensitive or confidential information.
While no website, including our own, can guarantee the absolute security and privacy of user information, we strive to ensure that any information we collect will be protected and kept private.
The information we collect from users will not be sold or traded with untrusted third parties. We are the sole owners of the information we collect. While we use Internet protocol (IP) addresses from your device to help customize our services and optimize our website, we do not automatically gather personally identifiable information. Your IP address is collected for the improvement and optimization of our website and does not include your name or other specific personally identifiable information.
The information you submit to us voluntarily through contact forms, emails or any other form of correspondence through this website will be kept private to best of our abilities. Though some general information might be requested for these interactions, such as your e-mail address, name, phone number and state, we will not ask for, nor should you submit, sensitive information, such as your Social Security Number, date of birth, driver’s license number or financial information.
The only instances in which we will share personal information submitted to our website would involve official governmental requests or situations involving site policy enforcement, compliance with the law or the safety and security of others.
Any information we collect or receive from users is stored in a secure database. Our site takes measures to ensure the information we collect isn’t misused, altered or lost. No database or information is completely secure or impenetrable, so users must proceed with the use of the site and submission of information at their own risk. We use encryption methods to keep communication between our firm and our users private and secure. We will continue to prioritize the strength and security of all the information we collect.
We reserve the right to disclose information obtained through this site to third-party contractors and standard services to ensure the quality of our site and enhance user experience. This information is disclosed anonymously and used primarily for tracking and analytical purposes. You can opt out of cookies by customizing your browser at any time. We use third parties only to customize and improve our online services, and we do not sell or trade sensitive or personal information with untrusted third parties.
This site contains links to other websites. Our firm has no control over the privacy policies of these websites. Any site you visit by clicking on a link will have its own set of privacy policies that dictate how your information will be used, stored and shared. Thus, we suggest you review those websites’ policies if you are concerned about how your information will be used and shared.
If you provide us with contact information, we might use that information to contact you with news about our firm or content we believe you will find useful. However, you can opt out of correspondence with us at any time by contacting our firm.
