When accessing our Website(s), the Law Office of Richard Kistnen (“LORK”) will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Similar to other commercial Websites, our Website(s) utilize(s) a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and the Websites visited just before and just after our Website, your IP address, etc.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Website, the visited site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our Web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to our customers and prospective customers.
LORK will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without your approval.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so; in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on our Website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information is never transmitted via email.
LORK may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our Website, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas, among other things.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, LORK. uses software programs and/or third-party service vendors to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Cookie Use for Retargeting
We may use a variety of advertising networks to display ads from across the Internet, based on your visit to our Website.
Third-party vendors may show our ads on sites across the Internet. Our site and third-party vendors use first-party cookies and third-party cookies together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on past visits and pages visited on this Website.
Our site as well as third-party vendors may use third-party audience data to further optimize advertisements displayed.
