PRIVACY POLICY

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SERVICES

Ulmer & Berne LLP (“Ulmer” or “we”) recognizes the importance of your privacy.  This Privacy Policy outlines the types of Personally Identifying Information we gather when you use any website made available by Ulmer with this Privacy Policy (each a “Site”), and how we use that information, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard it.  It is important to review this Privacy Policy in its entirety.  Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to our online information-gathering and use practices that are connected with the Sites and does not apply to any of our practices conducted offline.  

As part of the operation of the Sites, certain pieces of information are gathered about the users (individually, “you” or a “User” and collectively, “Users”).  This Privacy Policy contains explanations regarding the types of information collected, what is done with such information, and how to correct or change the information.

The Information We Collect

Information you Provide to Ulmer.  We collect Personally Identifying Information that you provide to Ulmer.  “Personally Identifying Information” is information that individually identifies you, and may include your name, physical address, phone number, and e-mail address, and any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact you.  You are not required to provide any information to Ulmer for use of a Site.

Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the Sites.  When you access or use the Sites, we may automatically collect information about you, including:

Using the Information

Use in General.  We may use your information for a variety of purposes, including to:

Sharing and Disclosure of Information

We will not share Personally Identifying Information about you with any third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy:

Safeguards

Ulmer protects your Personally Identifying Information by using information security safeguards.  Unfortunately, neither the network nor data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we strive to protect a User’s information, Ulmer cannot ensure or warrant the security of Personally Identifying Information or other information submitted through a Site.  Thus, any information a User transmits to us is done so at the User’s own risk.

Online Tracking

Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature.  That feature lets individuals tell websites that they visit that they do not want to have their online activity tracked.  The features are not uniform across all browsers and, at this time, the Sites do not respond to those signals.  

Accountability and Compliance

You may address any question regarding how Ulmer complies with this Privacy Policy to the e-mail address set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Third-Party Websites

On occasion, the Sites are connected by “hyperlinks” to other third party’s websites.  Please note that Ulmer is not responsible in any way for the privacy practices of other websites and suggests that you review the privacy policies of those other companies’ websites before using them.

Accessing Your Personally Identifying Information Once Given

If you believe your Personally Identifying Information is inaccurate, you may contact Ulmer to amend or delete your Personally Identifying Information.  

Minors

The Sites are not intended for people under the age of 13.  Further, we do not knowingly collect Personally Identifying Information from children under the age of 13.  If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe he or she has disclosed Personally Identifying Information to us, please contact us at the e-mail address set forth in this Privacy Policy and Ulmer will delete such Personally Identifying Information.

Changes to This Policy

Please note this Privacy Policy is subject to change from time to time.  We will notify you of material changes to this Privacy Policy by either sending you an e-mail or by including prominent notice of such change on a Ulmer website or other applicable Site.  The effective date of each version of the Privacy Policy will be included in this Privacy Policy.  Prior versions of this Privacy Policy will be kept in an archive for you to view for a reasonable period of time.
