When you choose to use our website, register for or participate in our educational series or webinars, message us through our website, email or social media channels, or interact with us in any other way without a signed client engagement letter in place (collectively, “Services”), this Privacy Policy will apply unless the product or service displays, references, or links to a different privacy policy. We will only process your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection and privacy laws.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Services or otherwise interact with us.  By accessing our Website or using our Services, you agree to this Privacy Policy.  This Privacy Policy may change from time to time.  Your continued use of this Website or our Services after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Privacy Policy periodically for updates.

 

Information We Collect

We collect information and data when you visit or interact with our website, register for or attend a meeting or event hosted by us (e.g., our educational series, seminars or webinars), subscribe to our newsletter, purchase our products or services, respond to a survey, fill out a form, or otherwise contact us.

We collect several types of information from you, including information

  • By which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or any other identifier by which you may be contacted online or offline; and

  • About your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our Services, and usage details.

 

You may choose not to provide your personal information, but if that information is necessary for us to provide certain aspects of our Services, we may not be able to provide those aspects of our Services to you.

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information from you when you provide it to us.  When you contact us through our website, subscribe to our newsletter or email list, purchase our products or services, or register for or attend a meeting or event hosted by us, we may collect your name, email, address, phone number, credit card or other payment information, and other information you provide, as appropriate. You may refuse to supply personal information to us; however, that may prevent us from providing you with access to certain parts of our Services.

Please be mindful about any personal information you choose to include when you interact with our company, with particular mindfulness when you interact with our company using social media.  The content of comments posted on our social media accounts is public, not private or confidential, and is not protected by attorney-client privilege or the work product doctrine.  

Information We Collect through Automatic Data Collection Technologies

When you interact with our website, cookies and other data collection technologies allow us to automatically collect personal information about you and the device you use, such as how you access and use our website, browser name, type of device, and other technical information (e.g., operating system, internet service provider, IP address). A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your device. The cookies we use are designed to help us provide you with a better experience with you browse our website, to improve our platform, and to otherwise enhance your experience. If you do not wish to receive cookies, most browsers have an “options” or “preferences” menu that will allow you to change your cookie settings; however, if you choose to refuse cookies, that may prevent you from experiencing the full functionality of our website.

Third Party Sources

We may occasionally obtain information from third parties, including trusted partners with whom we jointly provide services, applications and services that make users’ information available to others (e.g., social networks), and publicly available sources (e.g., online searches, government databases). We protect information obtained from those third party sources according to this Privacy Policy, plus any additional restrictions that may be imposed by the third party source.

We use any personal information we have gathered for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or otherwise disclosed to you. For example, we may use your personal information to:

  • Operate and Maintain the Website;

  • Communicate with you about new developments, upcoming events, and other non-essential or promotional information about our company and our Services, such as in our email newsletter.  Each email promotion will provide information on how to opt-out of future communications;

  • Provide and deliver our Services, respond to your questions, and otherwise provide customer support;

  • Send you information (e.g., confirmations, updates, support messages, and administrative messages);

  • Operate and improve our business and Services (e.g., payment processing, and business analytics);

  • Track and measure advertising on the Website, or

  • Protect, investigate and deter against unauthorized or illegal activity.

 

How We Share Your Information

 

We only share your personal information with your permission or as necessary to complete your transactions or provide the Services you have requested or authorized. For example, when you provide payment information, we share that information with banks or other entities as necessary for payment processing, fraud prevention, credit risk reduction, or other related financial services.

We may share your personal information with trusted vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described above. For example, our accountant, website host, cloud-based business services, and other service providers may need access to personal information to provide their services. Our current vendors include:

  • Gsuite (email, calendar, document storage)

  • Microsoft 365 and OneDrive (document creation and storage)

  • LawPay (invoicing and payment processing)

  • HelloSign (electronic signature)

  • Clio (client relationship management)

  • Flodesk (email newsletter)

  • Zoom (video conferencing)

  • Wix (website domain + hosting and scheduling)

  • U.S. Postal Service

 

Those service providers must adhere to data privacy and security requirements, and they may not use personal information they receive from us for any other purpose.

 

We may also disclose personal information as part of a corporate transaction, such as a merger, transfer, or sale of all or a portion of our business or assets.

 

We may access, transfer, disclose, and preserve personal information when we believe it is necessary to comply with applicable laws and regulations, respond to a subpoena, search warrant, or other lawful request, protect you or other clients, operate and maintain the security of our Services and related business operations, and protect our rights or property.

 

As a final note, we may share content as part of our Services, including links to the sites and services of our clients, instructors, service providers, and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on their sites and are not responsible for their content, links, services, privacy practices, or other policies. Browsing or interacting with any other website or company, including those listed or linked to in our Services, is subject to that website’s or company’s policies.

 

How We Protect Your Information

 

To protect your personal information, we have implemented and strive to maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable safeguards appropriate to the nature of the information we collect, use, and store. However, no website, internet transmission, method of electronic storage, or security system is completely secure. Any transmission of personal information is at  your own risk. Therefore, we urge you to take appropriate steps to keep your personal information safe, such as choosing not to send personal information through insecure email and closing your browser when finished using our Services or those of any other website on a shared device or unsecured network.

 

Your Choices About Your Personal Information

 

Communications Preferences

 

You will receive certain communications from us that are essential to the Services we provide to you or are otherwise required by law. However, you may choose whether or not to receive non-essential, promotional communications from us. If you change your mind, you may always contact us as described in those promotional messages or at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. 

 

Access, Correction, Deletion

 

You may request access to, correction of, or deletion of your personal information by contacting us as described at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. We may decline your request if: (i) we are unable to verify you are the person to whom the data relates, (ii) it could adversely affect the rights of another person, or (iii) it is unreasonable, excessive, or prohibited.

 

Browser Cookie Controls

 

Most browsers accept cookies by default, but you may set your browser to delete or reject cookies. If you delete or reject cookies, that may affect your ability to access the full functionality of our site and related Services. 

 

Do Not Track Signals

 

Some browsers allow you to activate “Do Not Track” signals, which are sent to websites you visit. There is not yet a common understanding or industry standard regarding how to interpret or comply with these signals, and we do not have mechanisms in place to respond to these signals. Instead, we recommend you use the other tools above to control the collection and use of your personal information.

 

Retention and Processing of Personal Information

 

We retain your personal information consistent with our general data retention and backup policies, which is necessary to provide our Services and for other essential purposes such as complying with our obligations to you, enforcing our agreements, and resolving any disputes that may arise. Our actual retention periods can vary widely based on the type of data, nature of the relationship, and our legal and other obligations.

The personal information we collect is stored primarily in the United States.  However, that information may also be stored and processed wherever our service providers maintain facilities.  We use our best efforts to ensure the personal information we collect is processed as described in this Privacy Policy and as required by applicable law.

 

California Residents

If you reside in California, you have the right to request more detailed information about how your personal information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes and to control with whom we can and cannot share your personal information.

Our Services and Website are not intended for individuals under the age of 18 (“Children”). Children may not use our Services, except under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

Changes

We will update this Privacy Policy occasionally to reflect changes in the law, our personal information collection and use practices, our Services, and advances in technology. When we post those changes, we will revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy.

Please review any changes carefully. Your continued use of our Services following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean you consent to and accept those changes. If you do not consent to any changes, you may cease using our Services and contact us to request deletion of your personal information.
