1. What information do we collect from you?
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our Site.
Personally Identifiable Information: This term refers to information that identifies users. Your Personal Data is collected and used by us to support a variety of business purposes, which are listed below:
|Purpose||The Personal Data We Collect|
|To provide you with legal services, subject to engagement terms.||
|To undertake marketing, event, or promotional activities, including sharing your Personal Data with third-party service providers to advertise our services.||
|To improve the functionality of our website or perform site analytics.||
|For employment purposes, such as applicant consideration, management of current employees, and benefit administration to eligible employees.||
|To provide persons with legal notices, comply with legal or compliance requirements, and for dispute resolution purposes.||
Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This term refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. The servers on which this Site is hosted gather certain information about how you access the Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a per-user and aggregated basis. This information may include your device’s media access control (“MAC”) address, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, mobile identifier, operating system, and web browser type, as well as the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website that you just came from and the URL of the website you go to next. In jurisdictions where such information may be considered Personally Identifiable Information, such information may also be used for purposes of fraud detection or security of our systems.
2. Where do we collect Personally Identifiable Information from you and how do we use it?
We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you:
(a) register for our services and register your email address with us; or
(b) send email messages, submit forms or transmit other information by telephone or letter.
We may also collect personal information from you at other points on our Site that state that such information is being collected.
In addition, we may also collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. This information is ultimately stored in the form of store categories, and, in some cases, specific URLs. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our site and to gather demographic information.
3. With whom do we share your Personally Identifiable Information?
Your Personally Identifiable Information may be shared with third parties under certain circumstances, including: (1) situations in which you have given your express consent; (2) when a service provided on this Site requires that Personally Identifiable Information be shared with a service provider that has agreed not to disclose the information to third parties; (3) to comply with legal process or pursuant to a lawful request by a court of competent jurisdiction or upon presentation of a valid law enforcement warrant; (4) to protect and defend the legitimate business interests, rights or property of Michelman & Robinson, LLP, (5) for internal business purposes to a service provider, such as third-party auditing; and (6) in urgent circumstances, to protect personal or public safety. We may also exchange information, including Personally Identifiable Information, with other companies and organizations for credit fraud protection, risk reduction, and to address cyber security risks and/or data breaches.
Service providers - We may share Personally Identifiable Information, including personal data and ﬁnancial information, with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include fulﬁlling transactions, providing e-Discovery assistance, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and marketing analysis, ad tracking and analytics, supporting our Service functionality, and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our Service. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
Aggregated and/or Non-Personal Information – We may use and share Non-Personally Identifiable Information (including but not limited to non-personal, de-identified, pseudonymous, or aggregated information) under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with other third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our Site and on websites or applications of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine Non-Personally Identifiable Information with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated, non-personal information, or personal information in hashed, non-human readable form, with third parties, including advisors and advertisers, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis or other business purposes.
4. How can you update or correct your Personally Identifiable Information?
We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information that you have provided to us. You may access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences by writing us at:
Michelman & Robinson, LLP
10880 Wilshire Boulevard, 19th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90024
Email: [email protected]
Please include your name, address, and/or email address when you contact us.
We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes.
5. What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?
We may, from time to time, send you email regarding our services. In addition, if you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving information from us, we may occasionally send you direct mail about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only Michelman & Robinson, LLP (or agents working on behalf of Michelman & Robinson, LLP and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings and only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily edit your account information to no longer receive such offers and mailings.
6. What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?
The security for our users’ Personally Identifiable Information is very important to us. We have implemented security measures and tools to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information transmitted to us.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us of the situation as soon as possible by contacting us at the addresses listed below; if you choose to notify us via physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the situation.
7. What should you know about privacy policies and data collection at any third party sites accessible from our Site?
8. Where is the Site geographically-based?
This Site is controlled and operated by Michelman & Robinson, LLP from the United States of America, and is not intended to subject Michelman & Robinson, LLP to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States of America. Your Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be stored, transferred to, and processed in any country where Michelman & Robinson, LLP has facilities or in which we engage service providers, and, by using Michelman & Robinson, LLP's products and services, you consent to the processing and transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States of America, which may have different data protection rules than in your country. Michelman & Robinson, LLP does not represent or warrant that this Site, or any part thereof, is appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access this Site do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations. We may limit this Site's availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in the sole discretion of Michelman & Robinson, LLP.
9. Does the Site respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals or headers?
The Site does not currently respond to DNT signals or headers.
10. Your California Privacy Rights
We take reasonable steps to help ensure that Personal Information (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act) we collect is accurate, complete and current. If you are a California resident, you may request access to your Personal Information, request that erroneous or inaccurate Personal Information be updated, or (in certain circumstances) request deletion of your Personal Information, by contacting us via email at [email protected], via telephone at (310) 299-5500, or writing us at the mailing address listed below. You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, or where the Personal Information or its use is exempted by state or federal law. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We will respond promptly to your requests in accordance with applicable law and will try to respond to all legitimate requests within 45 days. Occasionally it may take us longer than 45 days if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the Personal Information associated with the email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We may decline to process requests that jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or would cause us to take any action that is not permissible under applicable laws. Additionally, as permitted by applicable laws, we may need to retain certain personal information for a longer period for recordkeeping purposes, such as retaining records relating to your purchases for warranty or accounting purposes.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in our inability to provide you with services because such information may be required in order for you to register as a client or initiate other services.
We will retain your Personally Identifiable Information listed above only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy or as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law.
If you are a California resident, you have the right to be free from discrimination for exercising your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). M&R does not discriminate against California residents for exercising their rights under the CCPA by:
- Denying you goods or services.
- Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
SUBMITTING VERIFIABLE CONSUMER REQUESTS
A verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
To verify a consumer request, consumers will be asked to provide:
- Phone Number
- Email Address
- Mailing Address
- Matching pieces of certain personal information maintained by the firm in a signed declaration, for identity verification purposes.
In response to the requests, consumers will be asked to confirm more than one data point of personal information maintained by the Firm to verify their identity. We cannot provide personal information to consumers if we cannot verify your identity or authorization to make the request.
You may be permitted by applicable law to designate an authorized agent to exercise certain rights on your behalf. With the exception of authorized agents with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, consumers will be required to verify their own identity directly with the Company and provide written permission for an agent to act on their behalf.
Although Michelman & Robinson, LLP does not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to or write us at the address listed below. We will provide a list of the categories of Personally Identifiable Information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of these third parties. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. Michelman & Robinson, LLP reserves its rights not to respond to requests submitted other than to the email or mailing addresses specified below.
