Privacy Policy

by | Mar 6, 2019

We recognize that you may be concerned about our use and disclosure of your personal information. Your privacy is very important to us, and the following will inform you of the information that we, Hallstrom Klein & Ward LLP, may collect from you, and how it is used. By using our website, you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.ocbankruptcylawyer.com or https://www.bankruptcylawyerorangecounty.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The only personally identifiable information we collect is any information that you voluntarily send us through one of our contact us forms or through other direct communication from you.

Non-Personal Information

We may also collect information about the type of internet browser and operating system used, or what brought visitors to our website, as well as which of our website pages visitors have accessed and to identify repeat visitors to our site. This information is not connected to personally identifiable information.

Contact forms

If you have given us consent by checking the box associated with submitting information on a contact form, we may contact you via e-mail in reply to your request or to notify you of changes to this privacy policy. We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We will not provide the information we collect to outside third parties for the purpose of direct or indirect mass email marketing. We will not send marketing related emails to anyone who has submitted their email address to us unless specific opt-in permission has been granted.

Other websites you have visited

Some external web sites may provide links to our site. These links should not be deemed to imply that we endorse the site or their content. We do not control and are not responsible or liable for any site we do not own or for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available through them. Access to these sites is at your own risk and we have no liability related to such sites or their content or for any damages or loss caused by or in connection with any purchase, use of, or reliance on any content, goods, or services available on or through any other site.

Analytics

We utilize Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help analyze how non identifiable users use the site. For more details about Google’s use of cookies please see our Cookie policy page or any publicly stated policies by Google.

Who we share your data with

Your data is only available to employees of our company or any party providing services while performing regular and necessary duties of their contracted services for us.

How long we retain your data

We retain your data for as long as needed to maintain a relationship with you or until you notify us to delete any information regarding you.

What rights you have over your data

You can request to receive a disclosure of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You may opt out of any future contact from us at any time by contacting us. We honor inquiries including your request to:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

Please keep in mind that any opt-out choice you make will not apply in situations where (a) you either have made, simultaneously make, or later make a specific request for information from us, (b) we use your personal information for fulfilling your requests or (c) we shared your personal information with respect to disclosures to comply with law and to protect security and safety.

It may take up to thirty (30) days for your opt-out choice to be fully effective. Our systems require time to update, and mailings using your personal information shared before your opt-out may already be in process. Finally, please keep in mind that, if you have not consistently used the same postal and e-mail addresses on our website, or if you have used a general change of address process (such as the change of address process offered by the U.S. Post Office) after providing address information on our website, systems maintained by us may have varying contact information for you. Accordingly, it may not always be possible to match your new opt-out choice with your personal information that you previously provided.

How we protect your data

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit information via the contact form, your message is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. Our website resides on a GDPR compliant host.

We protect your information online and offline. Personally identifiable information that you have sent us for any reason is only accessed by employees who need to perform specific customer service duties. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Only individuals who need site visitor information to perform a specific job (for example, site security, performance, or analytic evaluation) are granted access to site statistics or logs. This data is not connected to your personally identifiable information.

If you are a minor, you may use this service only in conjunction with a parent or guardian.

Data breach procedures

If any of your information is ever compromised by theft or any other unexpected event, we will notify you within 30 days through the contact method we have on file for you.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We do not have automated decision making or profiling systems in place nor do we use your information for advertisement solicitations.

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.
