  2. Website Privacy Policy


  4. Revision Date: May 5, 2011


  6. Use of the smlaw.com website ("Website") is governed by its Terms of Use. As set forth in the Terms of Use, this document discloses the privacy practices (the "Privacy Policy") of Spaulding McCullough & Tanil LLP ("SMT"), the provider of the Website. Please read the information below to learn what information SMT collects and how it is used.


  8. You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is part of the Terms of Use for the Website, and by accessing or using the Website, you agree to be bound by all of its terms. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use the Website.


  10. Nothing in life is static and SMT may need to change this Privacy Policy. You can determine if this Privacy Policy has been revised since your last visit by referring to the "Revision Date" at the top of this Website page. Your continued use of the Website after such modifications constitutes your agreement to be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.  


1.    Types of Information Collected.


SMT collects two types of information about our visitors to the Website: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.


(a)    Personally Identifiable Information:


This refers to information that lets SMT know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as requesting assistance from an attorney, you may provide certain information about yourself.


(b)    Non-Personally Identifiable Information:


This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. SMT may gather certain information about you based on where you visit on the Website. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. Examples of the kind of information that may be collected include the uniform resource locator ("URL") for the internet site that you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. The Website also may store cookies on your computer.


In effect, a URL is the address of documents and other resources on the internet. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a network that uses transmission control protocol/internet protocol ("TCP/IP") to control how information is routed around the network. The internet is an example of a network that uses the TCP/IP protocol. So, an IP address is assigned to your computer whenever you are using the internet and thus allows other computers on the internet to locate and identify your computer. A cookie is a small text file which a website uses to store information on your computer (if your Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify information about you.


2.    The Collection and Use of Information.

SMT does not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it. In addition, SMT may also collect, either directly or through a third-party service (e.g. Google Analytics), certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. In general, SMT uses this information to learn where visitors to the Website come from, how they interact with the Website and to generate reports about the use and interaction with the Website.


3.    How Information is Shared or Transferred.

SMT does not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others as part of its normal business operations. Subject to the law, regulations and rules of professional conduct governing the practice of law in the State of California, SMT may provide Personally Identifiable Information to third parties who provide services for the benefit of SMT.


SMT also will disclose Personally Identifiable Information as required by law enforcement or judicial authorities, on receipt of a court order or subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. SMT reserves the right to report to law enforcement any activities that it, in good faith, believes to be unlawful.


4.     Privacy Policies and Data Collection at any Third-Party Site.


Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information by SMT. Other sites accessible through this Website have their own privacy policies and have their own data collection, use and disclosure practices. SMT is not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.


5.    Other Guidelines.


You must be at least 13 years old to use this Website. SMT does not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information about visitors to the Website that are under 13 years of age.
