This Privacy Notice is published by Relic Law PLLC to provide you notice of our information privacy practices. Your use of this website (the "Site") is expressly conditioned on your acceptance of this Privacy Notice.
This Privacy Notice is intended to inform you of how your personally identifiable information ("PII") may be collected and used by us and by and through your use of this Site. PII is a category of information that can be used on its own (or with other information) to identify you or another person. Examples of PII include one or a combination of the following: Name, date of birth, address, phone number, driver’s license number, social security number, etc.
Other categories of information include anonymous information and de-identified information. Anonymous information may be aggregated for the purposes of business insights or analytics and typically cannot be used to identify you from any other person. De-identified information may have been PII before unique identifiers were removed. In some cases, de-identified information could be reverse engineered to re-identify the person it originally identified.
Importantly, this Privacy Notice may be updated from time to time without notice to you, so it is incumbent upon you to review this Privacy Notice each time you access this Site or share information with us. For your convenience, we will provide revision dates at the bottom of this Privacy Notice.
2. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND RETENTION
In general, this Site does not require you to provide PII simply to access it (with the possible exception of "cookies" or “web beacons” described below), nor does this Site collect PII unless you submit such information to us directly. However, if you do submit PII to us, we may use your information for the purposes for which it was obtained, for our internal purposes, or to follow-up with you concerning your submission. In general, it is our policy to not retain information for any longer than is needed to accomplish the purpose for which the information was obtained, which may include legitimate follow-up.
3. INFORMATION SHARING
Unless you provide opt-in consent, PII you submit to us will not be shared with third parties unaffiliated with the operation or maintenance of this Site or third parties outside the scope of the purpose for which the information was obtained. Third parties within the scope of such purposes may include those that are relevant or essential to carrying out a contemplated transaction.
This Site may use different types of "cookies" for the purposes of identifying you as a user of this site. Cookies are small files downloaded to your web browser upon accessing the Site, which may capture certain information about your access, your web history, and even your IP address. Cookies may be used in conjunction with “web beacons,” which are small, invisible “tags” placed on web pages to track user behavior and interactions. Often, cookies and web beacons capture anonymous, aggregated data about users. However, in some instances, certain types of information could be potentially identifiable to you, like a static IP address. Some of the cookies used by this Site may be deployed and managed by third parties, including web services providers, such as Google.
In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), this Site is not marketed to children under thirteen (13) years of age and does not intentionally collect information from children. Parents are advised to take appropriate steps to ensure the safety and privacy of their children online.
This Site is not marketed to nor intended for users outside of the United States. As such, you should not assume that this Site is compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") or the laws of any non-U.S. jurisdiction. Any personal data of a EU resident collected by this Site is incidental and unintended.
In accordance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”), we want to inform you about our “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) request policy. DNT is a feature that some web browsers offer to allow users to send signals to websites so that no information about their browser session will be shared. To our knowledge, our Site accepts Do Not Track requests, but your browsing experience may be degraded. You may learn more about DNT mechanisms here: https://allaboutdnt.com/ and here: https://www.eff.org/issues/do-not-track
Our commercial email practices are intended to comply with the CAN-SPAM Act. If you receive email from us that for some reason does not provide an opportunity for you to unsubscribe or “opt-out” and you do not wish to receive subsequent emails from us, please notify us using the email link below of your desire to opt-out of future communications or other email preferences.
6. FAIR INFORMATION PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
We strive to abide by the OECD Fair Information Privacy Principles ("FIPPs") with respect to the operation of this Site and our business activities, generally. If you believe that we possess any information about you, that any such information may be inaccurate, or that any such information should be deleted, please contact us using the email link below and we will attempt to accommodate your request. Upon making such a request, you may be asked to provide sufficient proof of identification before we will take further action.
7. INFORMATION SECURITY
We will take reasonable steps to safeguard the information collected by us commensurate with such information’s level of sensitivity or as may be required by U.S. law. This Site is SSL/TLS secured, which means that your connection with this Site is encrypted. However, before submitting any information to us, you should consider that no amount of diligence can prevent every conceivable data risk and that there is a possibility that your information, including confidential information or sensitive PII, could be disclosed in a data incident or cyber attack. If such unauthorized disclosure does occur, we will respond according to the Breach Notification provision below.
You are advised to exercise caution when using this Site, when sending sensitive information over the Internet, and when opening and responding to messages, such as emails. We will never ask you for information such as usernames or passwords. Any email asking you to provide such highly sensitive information should be considered suspicious and a possible “phishing” scam.
8. BREACH NOTIFICATION
If this Site or any information we possess is the subject of a data breach and your PII is implicated according to any U.S. state or federal law that may apply to this Site or to our activities, then we will take such action, including providing you with notice, as such law or laws may require.
