Privacy

The legal system as we know it relies on the values of privacy and confidentiality, and Massey & Gail is committed to protecting the privacy of those whose personal data we receive.  Your use of this website signifies your acceptance of the terms of this privacy policy and the other terms and conditions listed above. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use the website.  This privacy policy is designed to inform you about what personally identifiable information (”PII”) this website collects, and what will be done with it. PII is understood to refer to information that would allow you to be identified or contacted, such as your name, physical address, e-mail address or telephone number.

  • Data Collection

    • Personally Identifiable Information: You are not required to submit PII to use this website. The only PII we collect via our website is information that you choose to submit, for example by emailing an email address found on our website. We also may collect professional affiliation and contact information from publicly available sources, and via information you may transmit by interacting with one of our firm profiles on social media.  Third-party links may appear on the site and, if so, those third parties may set and access cookies on your computer. Those organizations will have their own privacy policies that govern their use of any PII.
    • Non Personally Identifiable Information: Non-PII may be collected in log files from the web browser through which you are accessing our website, such as your IP address, operating system version, type of browser, etc., as well as through the use of cookies, pixel tags, and third-party analytics software that store anonymized information about your site visit, like which pages were viewed and for how long. The non-PII we may collect allows our website to perform better (load faster, remember your web preferences, etc.) and helps us improve the user experience. Our website does not respond to Do-Not-Track signals due to the lack of an industry standard signal around which we can build our website to respond, but many browsers have settings that limit cookies.
  • Data Use

    • Your PII is only used for purposes related to maintaining our website, emailing you information about our firm, relevant news items, or legal developments, or, if applicable, in our relationship with you as a prospective, current, or former client or business partner. Your PII may only be used in service of the above purposes by employees of our firm and on occasion by third parties under contract with us, such as IT or e-discovery services. Such third parties are under contractual obligations limiting the use and sharing of your PII. We will never sell or share any of your PII with anyone for purposes other than those mentioned here, except in circumstances as required by law or with your permission. If you would like us to update or delete the PII we have collected about you via our website, please e-mail website@masseygail.com.

Massey & Gail reserves the right to change, modify or update this policy at any time without notice. Any substantial changes in the way your personal information is used will be posted here.
