Privacy Statement Privacy

 — confidentiality — is central to the practice of law. At CKSM&M, preserving that confidentiality is a core value. We want you to know how we use information we gather from this Site.

We (through our Site host) gather some information about who visits our Site and what they do while here; but we do not share any of this data with outside companies (other than our Site service provider). Our Site service provider does not provide your information from this Site to anyone other than CKSM&M. We do not keep track of where you individually go on the World Wide Web, nor do we provide this individual information to advertising tracking services.

If you communicate with us through this site (for example, subscribing to an E*Zine or sending us an email), we will use that information as necessary to respond to you, provide the information you seek, and for our internal purposes. We will not share or sell that information commercially.

We do not give out individual information such as telephone numbers, addresses, screen names or email addresses, unless specifically authorized to do so or compelled by valid court order or other process.

We will keep you informed about what we do with personal information, and we will advise you if we change our Privacy Statement. A key part of our commitment to protect individual privacy is explaining how we may use, if at all, personal information we collect or obtain. This Privacy Statement serves that purpose. Whenever a change in our Privacy Statement occurs, 30 days notice of those changes through prominent disclosures, including notification on our front screen, will be given.

As stated in this Privacy Statement, CKSM&M undertakes these efforts to protect individual privacy of its Site users. However, CKSM&M reserves the right to collect and aggregate information for its internal use and purposes, and may share this aggregated information with its partners and other third parties.
