Our Commitment to Privacy
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our Site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Site.
- Personal Information You Choose to Provide
If you choose to seek more information regarding our services, you may need to give personal information. For example, you may need to provide the following information:
– Mailing address
– Email address
– Home and business phone number
In addition to providing the foregoing information, if you choose to correspond further 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 by mail and telephone.
- Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial web sites, our Site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server logs to collect information about how our Site 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 Site, and the Sites visited just before and just after our Site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
What Are Cookies? Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s Web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business/law firm activities, providing customer/client service and making available services to our clients and prospective clients. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Site and new services we think you will find valuable. The lists used to send you service offers are developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our customers/clients’ personal information.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
We use Site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Site users’ browsing activities, in order to constantly improve our Site and better serve our customers/clients. This information assists us to design and arrange our Web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our Site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers.
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our Site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our Site and evaluate our Site’s visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you although they do permit us to send focused online banner advertisements or other such responses to you.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
Information Security. We have implemented an information security program that contains administrative, technical and physical controls that are designed to reasonably safeguard personal information. We utilize encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Evaluation of Information Protection Practices. Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of our information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations. Our firm values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer/client information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons.
Communication Opt Out
If you wish to opt out of receiving communications directly from Cordoba Legal, with the exception of communications that are part of our representation of you, you can unsubscribe or follow the opt-out instructions in the emails that are sent located at the footer of the communication, or by texting “STOP” or “END” in response to text/SMS messages. In addition, if you don’t wish to receive telephone calls, please let us know during the call and we will add you to our internal do-not-call list. Again, we are only reaching out to you if you have made an initial request and/or if you have engaged our firm. Once you engage our firm, we have a responsibility to communicate with you about your matter.
Sharing of Information
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not sell, rent, trade, or otherwise share your personal information with third parties without first providing you notice and choice.
We may provide your personal information to agents or service providers acting on our behalf for limited purposes. For example, we may share personal information with our agents or service providers to send you email on our behalf or to ship gold/jewelry or transmit payment. These third parties are authorized to use your personal information only to perform the service they are providing for us.
We may also share your information for the purposes of protecting against fraud, and insure confidentiality and security. Specifically, under Florida law, law enforcement is allowed access to our records as part of their investigation into the sale of stolen gold/jewelry.
Additionally, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law (e.g., to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order, or similar legal process served on our website) and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, and/or respond to a government request. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
In the event Cordoba Legal goes through a business transition, such as a merger or acquisition by another law firm, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information and continued representation.
