Privacy Policy

Effective Date: March 2017

Kierman Law PLC (“Kierman Law”) respects your privacy and is committed to using responsible practices in the collection, maintenance and use of your personal information. This privacy policy explains our on-line information practices and applies to your use of www.kiermanlaw.com (the “Website”) and other services offered through the Website domain (the “Privacy Policy”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to us pursuant to our attorney-client relationships or protected by confidentiality, the attorney-client privilege, or any other applicable legal protection.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

Personally Identifiable Information
Throughout our Website, you may voluntarily submit information that personally identifies you (“Personally Identifiable Information”). In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or sharing any Personally Identifiable Information about yourself except as follows. Kierman Law only collects Personally Identifiable Information about you if you choose to share it with us. For example, you may subscribe to one of our blogs or newsletters by providing your email address to us, or you may submit Personally Identifiable Information via the contact form on our Website. You may also choose to provide Personally Identifiable Information by contacting an individual Kierman Law lawyer via an email address provided in a hyperlink. Personally Identifiable Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, physical address, and phone number.

Anonymous Usage Data
Like many other websites, ours may collect anonymous usage data (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”) about your activity at this Website. We may store information about the type of browser you are using, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, the time, date, and length of your visit; and the referring site. This information is collected via computer code sent to your computer (commonly referred to as a “cookie”). The cookie will not expire, unless you manually delete it or set your browser to reject it. If you do not accept the cookie, however, you may have difficulty navigating our Website.

Use of Information
We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information and information obtained by electronic communication solely for our own business, educational, social and recruiting activities and to provide you with exceptional customer service, including the sharing of this data with third parties, usually to provide services for Kierman Law associated with the maintenance of the Website. Except as outlined in this Privacy Policy or on the Website, Kierman Law will not sell or share your Personally Identifiable Information to others without your consent. If you choose to submit Personally Identifiable Information to the Website, we will use the information for the purpose you requested. For example, if you submit your e-mail address to subscribe to one or more of our blogs or newsletters, we will use that information to send you the blog(s) or newsletter. We may keep your information and use it to provide you with additional information in the future that we deem to be of interest to you. In addition, we may share this information with third parties to fulfill your request or to provide other services that may be of interest to you. If you do not wish Kierman Law to use your information in this manner, then do not submit any Personally Identifiable Information to us. In addition, Kierman Law may disclose Personally Identifiable Information about you if Kierman Law believes in good faith that the law requires it (such as a subpoena, court order, or law enforcement request), or if we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect our legal interests. The information collected from you may be transferred to a third party in the unlikely event of a sale, acquisition, merger or bankruptcy involving Kierman Law.

Links to Other Websites
For your convenience, our Website contains links to other websites (including, but not limited to, several social media sites) whose information and privacy practices are probably different than ours. If you choose to use these links, you will leave our Website, and will then be subject to the privacy and information practices of those websites. We do not control and are not responsible for any of their content or their privacy policies, if any. We do not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you choose to access any of the other websites listed on our Website, you should understand that you do so at your own risk.

Security
We employ commercially reasonable security measures to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your Personally Identifiable Information. However, we cannot and do not guarantee that these measures will be sufficient to protect against all efforts to gain unauthorized access to that information.

Application of United States Laws
Our Website is based on computers located in the United States. Your Personally Identifiable Information will be used and stored in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may differ from the level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as in Mexico, Canada and the European Union. The European Union has deemed that such storage may not provide “adequate” data protection. If you are not willing to have your personal information stored in the United States, please do not provide it to Kierman Law.

How to contact us
If you have any questions or concerns about Kierman Law’s Privacy Policy or its implementation, you may contact us at info@kiermanlaw.com. If at any time you decide that we should no longer hold any of your Personally Identifiable Information, or wish to change the use to which any such data can be put, please let us know by emailing us at info@kiermanlaw.com.

Consent and Revisions
Kierman Law may amend this Privacy Policy at any time without specific notice to you. We will post the revised Privacy Policy on our Website. Your use of our Website constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the Privacy Policy as amended or revised by us, and you should review this Privacy Policy each time upon visiting the Website to stay informed of its terms.
