Home > Privacy Statement
Your privacy concerns are important to Hodgson Russ LLP (“HR”). You need to know what information about you is being collected over the Internet and how that information is being used. At www.hodgsonruss.com (the “Site”), a Web site maintained by HR, HR is committed to assisting you in this regard. To that end, this policy explains what information is collected by HR from users of the Site and how that information may be used by HR.
The Site may be linked to other web sites. While this policy describes privacy issues relating to the Site, it does not describe the practices of any Web site that may be linked to the Site. You should consult the privacy policies of those other Web sites before submitting any information to them. HR is only responsible for information collected by it through the Site.
Most of the information collected by HR is provided directly by you. When using the Site, you may be asked to provide information about you, such as your name and e-mail address. If you do not want HR to have that information, you should not provide it. However, you may not be able to then enjoy some of the Site’s benefits.
Other information collected by HR may be provided automatically when you access the Site. A number of companies offer software that enables you to anonymously visit the Site. If you use this software, HR will not be able to recognize you and some of the benefits of using the Site may be unavailable to you.
HR only collects information for the purpose of making the Site more useful to its clients or otherwise to better serve its clients. Information collected by HR may also be used to occasionally notify you about changes to the Site, services offered by HR, recent developments in the law, and offers you may find of interest. Statistics may also be compiled by HR for many purposes using information provided by you. However, all statistics will be aggregated with other users of the Site and will not be associated with an individual user.
Like many Web sites, HR may use “cookies.” Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. They enable the Site to recognize you as a repeat user of the Site. Your Web browser may provide you with the ability to not accept “cookies.” However, in order to take full advantage of the Site, HR recommends that you accept “cookies” from the Site.
When you use the Site, HR offers a secure server. Software on the secure server encrypts all information before it is sent to HR. HR also uses other tools (such as firewalls) to safeguard your information from unauthorized access.
The Site is not intended for use by children. If you are under 18, you may only use the Site with the supervision of a parent or guardian.
HR does not sell or otherwise disclose your personal information to others without your authorization, except that HR may disclose such information to any successor of HR or when it believes, in good faith, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any law or protect the rights, property, or safety of another person.
By using the Site, you consent to the collection and use of information by HR as set forth in this policy.
HR may change this policy at any time without notice to you. If HR changes this policy, it will post those changes on this page. By continuing to use the Site after any such change is posted, you agree to such change. You should periodically check the Site for changes to this policy.
HR welcomes your questions, comments, and requests for additional information regarding privacy on the Internet in general and the Site in particular. You can contact us by e-mail or by regular mail at:
