This Privacy Notice describes our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing Personal Data (defined below) about individuals in connection with providing our services, including through our website (www.milgromlaw.com), and any other websites that link to this Privacy Notice (collectively, the “Service“).

Our Service may contain links to third-party websites and services that are not owned or controlled by Milgrom & Daskam. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of third-party websites, services, and advertisements, and you visit them at your own risk.

Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand our policies and practices for processing and storing your Personal Data. By visiting and engaging with our Service, you accept and consent to the practices described in this notice. This Privacy Notice may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Notice). Your continued engagement with our Service after any such revisions indicates that you accept and consent to them, so please check the Privacy Notice periodically for updates.

1. Personal Data.

As used in this Privacy Notice, “Personal Data” means any information that may be used, either alone or in combination with other information, to personally identify an individual.

2. Personal Data Collected.

We may receive, collect, and/or store Personal Data in the following ways:

  • 2.1 Personal Data Received from Clients. Our clients may provide us with Personal Data in the course of our representation of them. Information obtained from or relating to clients or former clients is further subject to the terms of any privacy notice to the client, any engagement letter or other similar letters or agreements with the client, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and applicable laws and professional standards.
  • 2.2 Personal Data You Provide To Us Directly. If you send us a “Contact ” request, call our office, email us, register for an event, or otherwise contact us, you may be required to provide us with certain information that may constitute Personal Data, such as your name, email address, company name, and phone number.
  • 2.3 Information Collected Automatically. Certain information on our Service is collected automatically. We have a legitimate interest and business purpose in using such information to assist in log-in, systems administration purposes, information security and abuse prevention, to track user trends, and to analyze the effectiveness of our Service. Alone or in combination with other information, such automatically collected information may constitute Personal Data. Some of our service providers (described in Section 4, below) may use cookies or other methods to gather information regarding your use of our Service. Such third parties may use these cookies or other tracking methods for their own purposes by relating information about your use of our Service with any of your Personal Data that they may have. The use of such information by a third party depends on the Privacy Notice of that third party. We may collect the following information:
    • 2.3.1 Log files including internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, clicked pages and any other information your browser may send to us.
    • 2.3.2 Data derived from web beacons or other tracking technologies including your IP address or to compile information about your usage of our Service and interaction with emails from us. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular site tied to the web beacon.
    • 2.3.3 We want our Service to be as easy and useful as possible. To assist with this, we may use cookies (small files placed on your device) or other automatic data collection technologies to improve your experience. When you visit our Service, our servers may send a cookie to your computer. By themselves, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your web browser. We may use cookies that are session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer. Please note that if you disable your web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to navigate our Service, but you may not be able to successfully use all of the features of our Service.

The cookies that we may use fall into two categories: Necessary or Analytics and Customization. Necessary cookies are required for the Website to function and for you to use all of its features.  Without these cookies, the Website would not function properly and you could not use all the features. Analytics and Customization cookies are cookies that assist us to understand how the Website is being used and how we can improve your experience. These cookies provide us with information to assist us to understand which parts of the website interest our clients and if they experience any errors. These cookies also save your settings and preferences on the website, such as language.

You may turn off the Analytics and Customization cookies using appropriate settings. However, if you select this setting, certain parts of our Website may not function correctly. You may not turn off Necessary cookies as such cookies are necessary for the Website to function.

2.4 We may also allow third parties to place cookies on your device through the Services to:

  • Help us understand and improve how visitors use our websites, including which of our pages and services are viewed most frequently;
  • More effectively present our services that may be of interest to you; and
  • Obtain your feedback on our products and the Services.

2.5 To assist us with analyzing our website traffic through cookies and similar technologies, we use third-party analytics services, including Google Analytics. You may visit the third-party links below to opt out of their tracking and learn about their privacy practices. However, we are not in control of the location of the instructions and information provided by the third parties below and, therefore, you may have to locate the particular instructions and information for the respective third party if these links are no longer current.

We may also disclose your Personal Data to third parties:

  • To a buyer or other successor in the event of merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, where one of the transferred assets is the Personal Data we hold, provided that the receiving party agrees to treat your Personal Data in a manner consistent with this Privacy Notice;

5. Accessing, Amending, or Deleting Personal Data

5.1 If you would like to access, amend, erase, export (i.e., data portability), or object to or restrict the processing of Personal Data collected via our Service, you may submit a request to info@milgromlaw.com. We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable laws.

5.2 You may also contact us if you would like to opt-out of Personal Data (i) being disclosed to a third party; or (ii) being used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you.  We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable laws.

5.3 Depending on where you live, you may have a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority or other regulatory agency if you believe that we have violated any of the rights concerning Personal Data about you. We encourage you to first reach out to us at info@milgromlaw.com, so we have an opportunity to address your concerns directly before you do so.

6. Children’s Privacy.

We do not intend to collect Personal Data from anyone we know to be under 18, except as permitted by law in the course of providing our Service to our clients.

7. Do Not Track Signals.

Our website does not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signal requests from browsers. This may change in the future.

8. Data Security.

The security of Personal Data is important to us. We take appropriate technical and organizational data security measures against unlawful or unauthorized processing of Personal Data, and against the accidental loss of, or damage to, Personal Data. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of Personal Data, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-parties such as so-called hackers from illegally obtaining access to Personal Data. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

9. Changes to this Privacy Notice.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion to make changes to this Privacy Notice at any time.  We will post any changes we may make to this Privacy Notice on this page.  You can see when this Privacy Notice was last updated by looking at the “Last Updated” section on the top of this page. While we may provide you with notice of material changes to the Privacy Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you will check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our Privacy Notice. UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED, ANY CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE WILL APPLY IMMEDIATELY UPON POSTING.
