III. Information Collection and Usage
The Sites will collect non-personally identifiable data and may collect personally identifiable information.
A. Personally Identifiable Information
1. The law office of Neil H. Lebowitz does not collect any personally identifiable information about any visitor to the Sites, such as name, address, telephone number, email address, or inquiries concerning representation in a case or other legal matter, unless the visitor contacts the law office directly, such as by telephone or email, or completes the Contact form on this website and provides the information, or the visitor gives a testimonial on the website.
2. The law office only uses personally identifiable information provided by a site visitor in the ordinary course of business in order to respond to the site visitor's inquiry or remarks. The law office will not contact a site user unless he or she requests it, and will not share, rent or sell personally identifiable information.
3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, except for personally identifiable information disclosed by a user-client in a website testimonial, personally identifiable information may be disclosed if the law office is required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with legal requirements or legal process, such as a court order or a subpoena, (b) protect or defend the rights or property of the law office, or (c) protect the personal safety of members of the public in appropriate circumstances.
B. Non-Personal Data
1. This website and the other Sites, if any, automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information about users when they visit the site. Information collected includes, among other things, the number of visitors to the site, the time spent on the site and the web pages viewed, visitor browser type and version, the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider, the type of device used to access the site and its operating system, referring and exiting pages for the visitor, and the Internet Protocol address of the visitor. The information is used to analyze site usage in order to improve its design, performance, and content and for other law office marketing purposes.
2. Non-personal data is collected by the site being visited by its sending cookies to the visitor’s computer or other device. A cookie is a small data file composed of letters and numbers in digital format that is stored in the cookie folder of the visitor’s browser or other application. Cookies allow a site to identify the visitor’s computer or other device during his or her visit, and recognize his or her device if he or she returns to the site during a different browsing session. Unless a visitor has adjusted his or her browser settings to block cookies or prompt him or her to accept cookies, cookies are automatically placed when the visitor accesses the site. Cookies placed by the website being visited are called “First-party Cookies.” Cookies placed by a domain other than that of the website being visited are called “Third-party Cookies.” “Performance Cookies” collect non-personal data about how visitors use the site being visited and any technological errors that occur during the visit and are managed for the law office by one or more third parties. The law office shares non-personal data with third parties for analytical and advertising purposes. “Session Cookies” are temporary and are deleted from the visitor’s device when his or her browsing session is over and the browser is closed. These cookies allow the website to link the actions of the visitor during the session and enable personalization features, such as the recall of recently viewed web pages and the information entered into form fields on the site, like the Contact form. “Persistent Cookies” remain on the visitor’s device for the period of time encoded in the cookie or until the cookie is deleted from the visitor’s device. Persistent cookies are activated each time the user visits the site which created the cookie.
3. As indicated, cookies are used to make the website work properly and to compile anonymous, aggregated statistical data on site usage. While cookies and like tracking technologies do not contain personally identifiable information, personally identifiable information may be linked to the non-personal data stored in cookies that are sent to the visitor’s browser from the site.
4. Visitors to this website and the other Sites, if any, have the ability to accept, decline or block cookies by modifying the settings in their browser. If cookies are disabled, however, the visitor may not be able to use all the interactive features of the site. A visitor consents to the placement of cookies on his or her computer or other device when he or she uses any of the Sites. If a visitor does not consent to the placement of cookies, he or she should stop using the site and use his or her browser to delete the cookies.
The law office of Neil H. Lebowitz does not knowingly collect personal data online from, or market to, children under the age of 13. The Sites are not intended for children under the age of 13.
V. Information Security
The law office of Neil H. Lebowitz uses commercially reasonable measures to help protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guarantied to be completely secure. Accordingly, the law office does not guaranty or warrant the security of any information that is transmitted to or through any of the Sites or that is collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to the law office. Visitors are advised to use caution when sharing personal information over the Internet, including through any of the Sites. (Please see the Website Disclaimer.)
