Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

As a result of recent federal laws, we are required to give written notice of our information gathering, retention, and disclosure policies. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to discuss our Privacy Policy so you understand why we collect Information* and what we do with it. Our professional ethics require attorney-client confidentiality. However, there are instances where certain information necessary to perform our services will be disclosed or used subject to these professional ethics and canons.

The policies and disclosures contained in this Privacy Policy may change over time, but we will communicate with you, as required by law, when changes are made. This Privacy Policy replaces all previous notices or statements with respect to this subject, and cannot be modified orally by any of our agents, employees or officers.

Information We Collect

We collect personally identifiable Information at different times during our engagement. Information is collected in order to assist us in analyzing your legal rights and options and to best serve your interests.

Information we collect comes to us in the following ways:

•Information you provide to us in correspondence, documents, and discussions;

•Information you provide on forms that we ask you to fill out, either for our records or for us to file with an appropriate agency or government office;

•Information we collect during our relationship with you, so we can provide legal services such as real estate settlement and closing services or tax advice;

•Information that is publicly available, such as deeds or mortgages which have been publicly filed;

•Information that you provide to us for us to use in a case, settlement negotiation, or other proceeding; and

•Information that we obtain during our billing process.

The type of Information we collect depends on the services that you have asked us to provide. For example, in the purchase or sale of a business entity, we collect address and contact numbers, financial information regarding the business involved in the transaction, and other information relating to the transaction. If you visit our website, our servers may log information such as your IP address, the pages you click on and how much time you spend there, and the web page you came from and go to next. We also save the information you transmit to us on our website when you ask us to send you newsletters or other information. If you send us a letter, email or fax, we save that information in our files, so we can respond to your questions or comments in order to best represent your interests.

Categories of Non-Affiliated Service Providers with Whom We Work

It should be obvious that we never provide Information to anyone unrelated to the matter we are handling for you. We do not, for example, provide information for purposes of mailing lists, and the like. But we do from time to time need to retain other services in connection with a matter we are handling. Sometimes we retain non-affiliated service providers such as court reporters, title insurance companies, messenger services, copy services and the like. These service providers often assist us in a number of ways in managing information relating to your matter.

We also often work with other parties such as accountants, expert witnesses, credit bureaus, bankers, and other businesses as necessary to perform our legal services for you. In such instances, we cannot always ensure that all information given to such businesses will be held in the same strict confidence as we do.

Information We Disclose

We ask our service providers to hold any Information we provide to them in confidence, and use the Information only to provide the services we have hired them to perform for you and for us. We may disclose your Information to credit bureaus and similar organizations, where required or permitted by law. For example, we may disclose your Information in connection with a subpoena or other legal process, in an audit, or when we record your mortgage or deed in the public records. Also, to represent your interest, or upon your consent, we may share your Information with third parties.

We only disclose your Information within the Firm, to service providers and third parties as allowed or required by law, to provide our services, or to obtain payment from you for the services we have provided. In real estate matters, we file certain real estate settlement documents with the appropriate recording office and provide closing documents to the seller of the property you are purchasing.

Disclosures About Confidentiality and Security

The security and confidentiality of your Information is very important to us. We take steps to safeguard it every day. We have physical and electronic safeguards, and company-wide policies and procedures, designed specifically to guard your Information against accidental disclosure. Our employees, agents, and service providers cannot use your Information for purposes other than those which we at Borgognoni & Law, P.L. authorize. Access to your Information is restricted, and employees who fail to follow our policies and procedures are subject to disciplinary action.

So You Know…

We provide you with access to your Information in various ways, including on our invoices and in letters to you. If you note that the Information we have is incomplete, incorrect or not current, please call the attorney who serves as your primary contact with the firm. We will update or correct the error promptly.

If our representation of you is terminated, this Privacy Policy will apply to information we collected while this Privacy Policy was in effect, unless we send you a revised Privacy Policy during such time as you were our client.

The examples listed in this Privacy Policy are illustrations and are not all-inclusive.

* Information is defined as information which identifies you and which is not publicly available.
