Privacy Policy


Adler Murphy & McQuillen LLP's Privacy Policy (Policy) explains how personal information we gain through your use of our website is used and safeguarded. It is designed to assist you in making decisions when you use or view our website, (Site). We reserve the right to change provisions of this Policy at any time, and the Policy is dated to assist you in ensuring that you are familiar with the Policy's latest revision.

Personal Information

The term "personal identifiable information" means information that specifically identifies an individual, such as a person's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, or other information about an individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal identifiable information does not include "aggregate information," which is information we collect about Site usage or demographic information about users that contains no personal information. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.

Information We Collect

While visiting our Site, you may provide us with both information that you knowingly disclose and information that your web-browser provides about your Site usage. Information that you knowingly disclose (Individual Information) is collected on a per-user basis, while browser generated usage information (Usage Information) is collected on an aggregate basis.

Individual Information: If you send us email or a website directed message, we may retain the content of your messages together with your personal identifiable information and our responses. Pursuant to our Disclaimer, these messages do not give rise to an attorney-client relationship. However, we provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.

Usage Information: Like many commercial websites, our Site may use a standard technology called "cookies" to enhance the user's experience and collect information about how our Site is used. We do this to create a better product for the Site's users. Usage Information may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis, and it is not associated with you as an individual. Usage information generally does not include any personal information.

How We Use this Information

We use the information we collect to administer our business activities and meet the needs of our clients. We may also use the information we collect to notify you about legal services or information that we believe you will find valuable. We do not collect information to produce automated mailing lists or electronic marketing materials.

Additionally, we may use Usage Information to understand our Site users' browsing activities. We use this information to improve our Site and enhance your experience, such as improving access to information that Site users access most frequently.

How We Protect Your Information

We work hard to protect our systems (including our Site), our users, and our customers from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular, we employ the following practices:

Evaluation of Practices: We monitor and review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to our systems and ensure compliance with our firm policies.

Access to Confidential Information: Our document management policy is designed to protect customer and user information. When information is identified as or deemed confidential information, the policy limits employee access to and mandates the use of sophisticated encryption technology in the handling of all confidential information.

Legally Required Disclosure: We may disclose information when we have a good-faith belief that sharing such information is reasonably necessary to comply with an applicable regulation or law or when we are legally compelled to do so.

Selling of Information: We do not sell or lease information to any outside organization or individual.
