At The Employment Law Group, P.C. (TELG), we take your privacy seriously. This notice outlines the privacy practices we use for our Web site at https://www.employmentlawgroup.com. In particular, it explains the following:
- What information we collect.
- How we use that information.
- How we protect that information.
- The choices you have, including how to access and update information.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Personally identifiable information includes items such as your name, e-mail address, or phone number. We collect such information only when you voluntarily supply it to us via e-mail, “Contact Us” forms, chat forms, or other direct contact with our firm. We use this information to respond to you regarding the matter for which you contacted us — usually a legal matter. We do not share personally identifiable information with anyone outside of our firm or its contractors, period. Also, for the avoidance of doubt, TELG will not sell or rent your information to anyone.
DATA ABOUT YOUR USE OF OUR SITE
Via server logs and “cookies,” we automatically collect data about every visitor’s use of our Web site. This includes items such as the time each visitor arrived, the Internet “address” of the machine used to view our site, the type of browser used, the pages viewed, the links clicked, and so on. If a visitor arrives by clicking on a particular advertisement, we record that fact. We aggregate such data and analyze it to improve the effectiveness of our Web site and our advertising. In addition, if you contact our firm via our Web site, we will save some usage data from your individual visit. As with personally identifiable information, we do not share this data — whether aggregated or not — with anyone outside of our firm or its contractors, period. And again, for the avoidance of doubt, TELG will not sell or rent this data to anyone.
There are no third-party ads or advertisers on our Web site. However, third-party vendors such as Google may use “cookies” to serve TELG ads elsewhere based on a prior visit to this Web site. No personally identifiable information is collected by these cookies, and we do not have access to their content. You can opt out of third-party vendor cookies at any time by visiting this page: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We take many precautions to protect your information. For instance, our Web site is hosted in a secure IBM facility and uses industry-standard encryption to communicate with your browser. Furthermore, after you submit personally information via our Web site, this information is stored in a completely different secure environment and can be accessed only via encrypted links.
YOUR CONTROL OVER INFORMATION
We use your personal information only in connection with the matter about which you contacted us. However, you can instruct us to stop using it at any time. In addition, you can do the following:
- Discover what personally identifiable information we have collected from you, if any.
- Correct any information we have collected from you.
- Express a concern you have about our use of your information.
- Instruct us not to contact you.
To do any of these things, just contact us. If you would prefer to use U.S. Mail, please write us at:
