What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information

Lovitz IP Law PC does not collect any personally identifiable information from you (e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) unless you voluntarily choose to submit or otherwise disclose such information to us, including information submitted or disclosed by mail, telephone, fax or electronically.  We will not sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties outside Lovitz IP Law PC.  Lovitz IP Law PC will only use your information to respond to your request for information, to register you for events or subscriptions at your request, or, if appropriate, to consider your request for consideration of employment with Lovitz IP Law PC.  If you are interested in applying for a job at Lovitz IP Law PC and choose to submit resume information by email, we will use it only for the internal application review process.  We will not voluntarily share, rent or sell it outside Lovitz IP Law PC.

If you wish to change any information submitted to Lovitz IP Law PC, or if you wish to opt out of a mailing list, please do so by sending an email to info@lovitziplaw.com.

We automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as the browser type, operating system, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

General Use of Information
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.  Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any of the offices of Lovitz IP Law PC.  Personal information which users in the European Union provide to us may be transferred to other countries (including the United States), the data protection laws of which may differ from those of the European Union and which may not meet the “adequate protection” standard set by the European Union, but by accessing the Lovitz IP Law PC website, you expressly agree to such transfer.

However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request.

Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.  Lovitz IP Law PC, however, makes a reasonable attempt to secure transmission of personal information over the internet by encrypting the transmission using SSL encryption between your browser and Lovitz IP Law PC’s servers.

Other Sites
Except as otherwise expressly discussed in this Privacy Policy, this policy only addresses Lovitz IP Law PC’s use and disclosure of information we collect from you.  To the extent that you disclose personal information to other sites, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of these other sites.


How We Protect Your Information

Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts

No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure.  As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information as specified in this Privacy Policy, Lovitz IP Law PC does not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk.  Lovitz IP Law PC will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.  However, once we receive your transmission, we act reasonably to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.

Security
Any information provided to Lovitz IP Law PC is treated with care and discretion.  Lovitz IP Law PC will take a proactive approach to help ensure the information is kept private and not misused.  We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online.  However, we do not guarantee the security of your personal information.
