Privacy Policy

January 1, 2020

We understand the importance of your personal information. Your privacy is very important to us, and the following explains how Strategic Legal Practices (“we,” “us,” “our,” or “SLP”) collects and uses personal information. By using our website, www.slpattorney.com (the “website”), as well as any SLP website or mobile app that displays this statement, you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

  1. Information Collection

We may collect the information you provide to us directly, such as when you subscribe to our mailing list, register for an event, contact us by letter, contact us by phone, contact us by e-mail, respond to an online advertisement, or submit an inquiry on our website, as well as information well collect automatically through the use of cookies and similar technologies during your interactions with our website. We also purchase personal information from vendors who are authorized to provide that information.  For more information on our use of cookies, please see the Cookies & Similar Technologies section of this privacy statement.

The personal information we collect includes:

  • Name and contact details (for example, your e-mail address, mailing address, phone number and social media handle).
  • Demographic data (such as your country, organization, and title).
  • Preferences (such as which areas of the law you are interested in).
  • Contents of your communications with us.
  • Device information (including your, IP address, device type, and operating system)
  • Website interactions (such as the pages visited on the website, time spent on each page, whether you’ve clicked on a hyperlink and search queries).

2. Information We Use

We use the collected information primarily for our own internal purposes, such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving our services and Website, fulfilling requests for information, and providing customer support.  We may share some of this information with companies that perform services for us, but we never sell your personal information.

We use the information we collect to:

  • Respond to your inquiries.
  • Send you alerts or other newsletters that you have requested, or that we think may be of interest to you.
  • Send you other marketing or promotional information related to SLP, including news about our attorneys, practice groups and events.
  • Send you service announcements or other administrative messages relating to our website or your relationship with SLP.
  • Improve the website and our communications with you.
  • Comply with our legal obligations, to enforce our website terms and other policies, and to prevent fraud.

We may share your information:

  • With our vendors, which work with us to provide services on our behalf.
  • With third parties as part of a merger, acquisition or other corporate transaction.
  • As required by law or to bring a legal action.
  • With your consent.

Our vendors. We share your information with vendors who work with us and provide our services on our behalf. For example, companies we hire to help us maintain the website, manage our mailing lists, provide marketing assistance and data analysis may need your information to provide those services. SLP requires these vendors to comply with our data privacy and security requirements and we prohibit those companies from using the personal information they receive from us for any other purpose.

Other law firms as part of a merger, acquisition or other corporate transaction. As SLP develops, we may acquire other law firms or their assets or be acquired by or merge with another law firm. Personal information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the unlikely event that SLP or all of its assets are acquired through such a transaction, your information would be one of the transferred assets.

Law Enforcement. We will share your personal information when we have a good faith belief that doing so is required by law or is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

We will also share your information with third parties when you ask or consent to us doing so.

3. Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards that are designed to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.

If we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

4. Cookies

We use Google Analytics to collect information about your interaction with our website. For example, we use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page and to develop other statistics about the use of the website. You can opt-out of Google analytics, here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (requires you to install a browser add-on).

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your device to store information. This data often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but it can contain other information as well, including your IP address, clickstream patterns; and dates and times that you access a website.

We use cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your interaction with our website. For example, we use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page and to develop other statistics about the use of the website.

Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. However, please be aware that some features of the website may not function properly or may be slower if you refuse cookies.

We use cookies provided by Google Analytics to collect statistical information about the use of the website. You can opt-out of Google analytics, here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout(requires you to install a browser add-on).  We also use Google Ads, SEOMoz and Keyword Hero to provide services, in the course of which they also collect certain information of our website visitors.

We do not respond to Do Not Track signals.

5. Sharing

We do not sell your personal information to any person or entity.

We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company
  • Protect and defend the rights or property of our Website and related properties
  • Identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing our Website or its related properties

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion boards, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
