Privacy - It’s Our Policy

Bunsow De Mory Smith & Allison LLP (BDSA) is committed to safeguarding the privacy of visitors to our website. We established this policy to explain the information that we collect through our website, how we use it, and how we protect personal information. This Privacy Policy does not address information collected through other sources, such as in-person seminars, an attorney’s personal contacts, or email messages that you send to us.

This Policy only applies to our website; it does not apply to other websites (such as those that we may link to) or service providers.

Please note that your internet service provider or network operator may collect information about your use of the Internet (including our website). 

You may choose to access our site via a VPN service, Tor, or your browser’s incognito or privacy mode to reduce or obscure the information collected by our website, by our vendors, and by others.

Information That You Provide Voluntarily

We do not require you to provide us with any personal information to browse our website. You may choose to provide us with personally identifiable information, such as though our contact forms or newsletter signup pages. If you provide us with contact information, we may use it to contact you, including for business and marketing purposes. We do not sell the information that you provide to us, nor do we share it with third parties.

Information Automatically Collected by Our Website

When you use our website, information about your use of our website is collected by our web servers.

Information Collected by Third Parties

Our website is hosted by a third-party vendor. We also utilize a content delivery network (CDN) provider to improve the security and performance of our website. These vendors log technical information related to your access and use of our website, which they may use to analyze trends, administer servers, track access, and gather broad demographic information regarding aggregate use of their servers and infrastructure. This information may also be used to ensure the security and operation of our website and our vendors’ systems.

If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice (unless we are prohibited or it would be futile) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.
