PRIVACY POLICY
September 3, 2015

Introduction

At Leaffer Law Group LLC (“Leaffer Law Group,” “we” or “us”), we understand the importance of your privacy and provide this Privacy Policy to inform you about our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use, security and disclosure of personally identifiable information and other information received from users of our website. Please review this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use prior to further use of our website. By using this website, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not use this website. This Privacy Policy is expressly incorporated into our Terms of Use.

This Privacy Policy may be updated or revised from time to time. We may do so, at any time and without notice (except to the extent required by law), by posting the revised version on this website. We suggest that you review this Privacy Policy periodically for any such changes. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party site that may be accessible through this website.

Information Governed by this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs information collected through our website at www.leafferlaw.com, and its subdomains. This Privacy Policy does not govern emails you may send to us, or information you may provide to us, by any means other than through postings on this website or use of the web-based forms on this website.

Collection of Information

This website, including the blog, facilitates your sending of personally identifiable information, such as your name, telephone number, postal address or email address, to Leaffer Law Group. The provision of any such information by you is completely voluntary. Please do not send any sensitive or confidential information, or other information relating to a legal matter, without first speaking to one of our attorneys and receiving confirmation that our firm has agreed to represent you (which will be evidenced by a signed engagement letter from our firm). See our Terms of Use for further explanation.

Types of Information Collected

We collect two types of information through our website. “Personally identifiable information” is information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us (including without limitation your name, address, email address, telephone number or other personal information you may submit through our website). “Non-personally identifiable information” is information that alone does not identify you.

Submission of personally identifiable information through our website is purely optional, so you are not required to submit any such information to us if you do not wish to do so. For example, you may wish to provide personally identifiable information to Leaffer Law Group if you are interested in having us contact you regarding possible representation, or if you wish to receive information from us or to subscribe to our blog. This information may include your name, address, email address and other information you voluntarily provide to us.

When you visit our site, we also collect non-personally identifiable information sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the identity of your Internet service provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your web browser, the “referring” website from which you initially entered this website, the date and time of your visit and the pages you visit.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

Our site uses standard technology called “cookies,” which are small data files that are transferred to your hard drive when your browser settings permit the acceptance of cookies. Cookies automatically identify your web browser whenever you visit our site, and may save your preferences and other information related to your use of our site. Our site may use cookies or other technologies provided by website analytics services such as Google Analytics to help us better understand how our site is used, and to help us determine which features and content on our site are most important to our visitors. To learn more about, or to opt-out of Google’s analytic and marketing services, visit Google Analytics Terms of Use, the Google Privacy Policy, or Google Analytics Opt-out.  If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you generally can turn off cookies in your browser; however, some areas of the site may not provide you with the full functionality if you have disabled the use of cookies.  Please note, most modern browsers include a “do not track” feature that may help protect your privacy. However, because there is not yet a defined response to do-not-track requests, our site does not respond to your browser’s do-not-track request.

Use of Information

Leaffer Law Group uses the personally identifiable information you voluntarily provide only for the purpose it was submitted to us (for example, to send you information about firm events or publications, to answer your inquiries regarding possible legal representation, to fulfill your subscription to our blog posts or other publications, or to respond to other questions or requests if applicable). If you are requesting to subscribe to our blog posts or to receive marketing information from us, you will be placed on the applicable email list. In addition, we maintain email lists for our clients. If you wish to opt out of such mailing lists, please email Leaffer Law Group.

Computer data sent automatically by your web browser may be used for internal and marketing purposes, and then discarded when we will no longer need it. However, please be advised that we may review our server logs – which contain visitors’ IP addresses – for security and fraud prevention purposes.

Security

We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personally identifiable information you provide through this website. While we take reasonable measures to ensure the security of this information, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the internet or stored in our databases. Your transmissions are, therefore, at your own risk.

Disclosure of Information

We may sell, share or otherwise disclose the personally identifiable information you provide through this website, including the blog, as follows: (i) disclosures to third parties who perform services on our behalf, such as those who monitor the website, those who assist in preparing firm mailings and those who assist in registration of firm events; (ii) disclosures to a co-sponsor of an event sponsored by Leaffer Law Group; and (iii) carefully selected third parties for marketing activities or other purposes relevant to the business of Leaffer Law Group. In addition, we reserve the right to use and share any information collected through this website as we deem to be necessary to investigate suspected illegal conduct or violations of the Terms of Use governing this website, to comply with legal process (including a court order or subpoena), to assist law enforcement agencies in an investigation, to protect the rights, property or safety of Leaffer Law Group, our users or others; to protect the vital interests of any individual, or if we believe in good faith it is required by law. Your personally identifiable information may also be transferred to another law firm that succeeds to all or part of our business. We may share analyses of our server logs, including details regarding website usage and general information about our audience, with current or potential business partners. Such disclosures will refer only to general, aggregate usage data from these analyses – never specific identifying information.

Please be aware that although we may request your consent for some disclosures described in this section, by using our website you are deemed to have accepted and agreed to the disclosure of your information collected through our website in the manner described in this Privacy Policy, and we will not be required to obtain your consent for any disclosures described in this Privacy Policy.

Modification or Deletion of Information

If you wish to modify or delete any information you have provided to us or which we have collected through our website, please send an email Leaffer Law Group. We will use reasonable efforts to delete information we have stored in our databases and otherwise, however we cannot guarantee that all instances of all data collected will be permanently removed. In addition, we cannot be responsible for the modification or deletion of any information we have provided to third parties as described herein.

Governing Law

This Privacy Policy shall be governed under the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
