What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Data about our users are provided directly from the user, from our analytics provider, from our web host, and through cookies. The information is used primarily to provide an optimized internet experience that serves the information and resources that are the most relevant and helpful to you. We don’t share any of the information provided to us unless otherwise noted on this page or if required by law.
User-supplied personal information
If you fill out the “contact” form on this website, we will ask you to provide some personal information (such as e-mail address, name, phone number and state). We only require that you provide an e-mail address on the contact form. Further, if chat is available through this site, you may be asked to provide information if you participate in an online chat. Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Information that you provide to us through the contact form or an online chat will be used so that we may respond to your inquiry. We may also use information you provide to us to communicate with you in the future. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you may opt out (unsubscribe) as described within the communication or in the Contact Information section below.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Our site utilizes Google Analytics to assess user behavior. Please see their page explaining how Google uses information from sites that use their services.
Who we share your data with
The services used for regular operations of NSDPA Law, PLLC, that may handle or store user data are:
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained by WordPress indefinitely. This is so WordPress can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Anonymized user data is collected for website analytics and service continuity.
Inquiries regarding data use and management or to make a data subject request, please contact:
Dirk de Pagter-Allison, Tech Administrator
How we protect your data
We take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data from accidental loss or unauthorized access, acquisition, or disclosure. We use secure VPNs and end-to-end encrypted communication tools when handling any sensitive data. We, however, cannot guarantee that our systems and protocols will be completely invulnerable.
We will not sell, rent, lease, or otherwise make available any mailing list or other user data to others, except if both parties have agreed to a referral out to another legal professional or if required by law.
What data breach procedures we have in place
Since any data we may collect via this website is housed with third-party services and not with NSDPA Law directly, we confirm regularly that the services we use are compliant with the latest Information Security standards and practices.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
To our knowledge, there are no practices or services in use at NSDPA Law that make use of such systems.
