We may also interact with you on third party sites where we post content or invite your feedback, including sites such as www.linkedin.com and various blogs authored by Michelman & Robinson, LLP attorneys (“Third Party Sites”). This Privacy Policy covers all collection, use and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information, whether through the Site, Third Party Sites, or otherwise. THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES LINKED TO FROM THE SITE.

You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is part of our Site Terms of Use, and by accessing or using our site, you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use this site.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to, posting the revised Policy on this page. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this site and this Policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. Your continued use of the site after such modifications will constitute your: (a) acknowledgment of the modified Policy; and (b) agreement to abide and be bound by the modified Policy.

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 refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as registering for an event, signing up for a newsletter or e-alert, or sending us feedback, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, employer, and telephone number, and other personal identifying information. 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 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 personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include your computer’s media access control (“MAC”) address, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, 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.

This Site and Third Party Sites may also make use of pixel tags, temporary or “session” cookies, and similar technologies in order to enable the basic functionality of the sites, facilitate users’ access to and use of the sites, and count which pages of the sites have been visited and help determine the effectiveness of online firm publications. Third-party links may appear on the sites 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. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular website, to your computer. However, this Site may not function for you as intended without cookies.

2. Where do we collect 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 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.

We will primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide our services to you, as required by our agreements with you. We will also use Personally Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of our site, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze site use, improve our service offerings, and customize our site's content, layout, and services. We may use Personally Identifiable Information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. If you have made an inquiry of Michelman & Robinson, LLP regarding the availability of services or have otherwise consented, we may elect to use your PII to provide you with law firm publications, event invitations or other mailings that may be of interest to you.  We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Site Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy. Information provided by you that does not constitute PII may be used for any lawful purpose and may be shared with third parties.

3. With whom do we share your PII?

Your PII 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 PII 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 PII, with other companies and organizations for credit fraud protection, risk reduction, and to address cyber security risks and/or data breaches.

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: info@mrllp.com

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 importance of security for all Personally Identifiable Information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. To this end, 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, even in those situations in which it is appropriate for use to do so.

7. What should you know about privacy policies and data collection at any third party sites accessible from our site?

Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Other sites accessible through our site have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each site's privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties. Additionally, other companies which place advertising on our site may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising through the use of cookies. We cannot control this collection of information. You should contact these advertisers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information that they collect.

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 PII and non-PII 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

Although Michelman & Robinson, LLP does not share your PII with third parties for their 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 PII 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.

11. Do we collect PII from individuals under the age of 18?

This Site is not directed to individuals under the age of 18, and we request that such individuals not provide PII through this Site. If you are under 18 years of age, you may browse this Site; however, you may not provide PII to us.
