We collect Personal Data that you provide to us to fulfill your request to receive additional information from us. We also collect personal information from you passively. We use tracking tools like browser cookies and web beacons to provide and support our Site. We only use and store your Personal Data if we have a legal basis for doing so, including where you have given us your express consent, where we have a legitimate business interest, or pursuant to the contractual relationship between you and Adelman Law.
Personal Information Collected
We collect Personal Data from you primarily when you complete a contact form in connection with your request to be contacted directly by an attorney with respect to legal matters. The Personal Data that you must supply on the Site in order to obtain access to the Contact Services may include, without limitation: (a) your full name; (b) your e-mail address; (c) your telephone number; and (d) any and all other information requested on the applicable registration form.
Use of Personal Information
We will never sell, rent, exchange or barter your Personal Data to or with any third party for financial gain or marketing purposes. Where you request to be contacted in connection with the Contact Services, we use the Personal Data that you make available to: (a) respond to your questions or comments; and (b) send you our periodic newsletter, if applicable. In addition, we may file your questions or comments for future reference. If you wish to stop receiving future communications from us, please see the Opt-Out/Unsubscribe section below.
The Personal Data that you submit to us remains your property. We may permit our third-party agents, service providers and subcontractors to access your Personal Data, but they are only permitted to do so strictly in connection with performing services for us and/or to operate the Site and/or Services. They are not authorized to use that Personal Data for their own benefit.
At times, we may want to contact you via telephone regarding your use of the Site and/or Services. To enable us to contact you by telephone regarding your use of the Site and/or Services, you agree that by submitting your Personal Data by and through the Site and/or Services, and where we have a valid legal basis as required under applicable law, such act constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (16 CFR §310 et seq.), as amended from time to time (the “Rule”) and applicable state do-not-call regulations. As such, notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, and/or on applicable state do-not-call lists, we retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the Rule and applicable state do-not-call regulations.
We reserve the right to release current or past personal information: (i) in the event that we believe that the Site and/or Services is/are being or has/have been used in violation of the Terms and Conditions and/or to commit unlawful acts; (ii) if the information is subpoenaed; provided, however, that, where permitted by applicable law, we shall provide you with e-mail notice, and opportunity to challenge the subpoena, prior to disclosure of any Personal Data pursuant to a subpoena; (iii) to comply with a legal obligation, including sharing your name/e-mail address with third-parties to assist you with your opt out requests in compliance with applicable law, including the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as amended from time-to-time; (iv) to protect and defend the rights or property of Adelman Law; (v) to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our users or the public; or (vi) if we are sold, merge with a third-party, are acquired or are the subject of bankruptcy proceedings; provided, however, that if Adelman Law is involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Site of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Data, as well as any choices that you may have regarding your Personal Data.
Third-Party Websites and Mobile Applications
This Site may contain links to third-party owned and/or operated websites and mobile applications. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites or mobile applications. These third-party websites and mobile applications have separate privacy and data collection practices and we have no responsibility or liability relating to them.
We endeavor to safeguard and protect our users’ Personal Data. When users make Personal Data available to us, their Personal Data is protected both online and offline (to the extent that we maintain any Personal Data offline). Access to your Personal Data is strictly limited, and we take reasonable measures to ensure that your Personal Data is not accessible to the public. All of our users’ Personal Data is restricted in our offices, as well as the offices of our third-party service providers. Only employees or third-party agents who need user Personal Data to perform a specific job are granted access to user Personal Data. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user Personal Data. Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. The servers that we store user Personal Data on are kept in a secure physical environment. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of Personal Data under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your data, no storage facility, technology, software, security protocols or data transmission over the Internet or via wireless networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Computer hackers that circumvent our security measures may gain access to certain portions of your Personal Data, and technological bugs, errors and glitches may cause inadvertent disclosures of your Personal Data; provided, however, that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software may constitute a crime punishable by law. For the reasons mentioned above, we cannot warrant that your Personal Data will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through the Site, other Services or otherwise via the Internet or wireless networks, is done at your own risk.
In compliance with applicable law, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your Personal Data. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
Visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age in their jurisdiction of residence) are not permitted to use and/or submit their Personal Data at the Site. We do not knowingly solicit or collect information from visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age in their jurisdiction of residence).

Deleting, Modifying and Updating Your Information
At your request, we will: (a) inform you of what Personal Data we have on file for you; (b) amend the Personal Data that we have on file for you; and/or (c) remove Personal Data that you have provided to us, or that we have collected, from our servers/databases and the servers/databases of any third party that we have provided your Personal Data to. You may do so by contacting us via e-mail at: email@example.com; provided, however, that we ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Please be advised that deleting your Personal Data will limit our ability to contact you in connection with the Contact Services. If you wish to be contacted by us in connection with the Contact Services, you may not delete the Personal Data that we have on file for you.
Please be further advised that, after you delete your personal information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.
