When you use our web site services, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it and what we do with it. When you share information with us, we can make our services even better for you. For instance, we can show you more relevant search results, help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully.


Right to access, correct and delete data and to object to data processing

When you visit our Website, you may provide us with some basic information identifying you as an individual (“Personal Information”). If you choose to provide us with Personal Information, such as your name, organizational affiliation and contact information, then we may use it to identify you in order to enable you use of particular services that we offer. We use the information we collect on our Website in relation to client service purposes.  We may also use or disclose your personal information in accordance with your consent, when required by law.


Whitmer Law makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to our Website. Furthermore, Whitmer law does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Website users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. For informational purposes, the Website may include links to other web sites or other internet sources. Such linked websites are independent from our Website and are not governed by this Privacy Notice. Whitmer Law cannot control these web sites and external sources, therefore, Whitmer Law shall not be held responsible for the provision or display of these web sites and external sources, and may not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services or any other material available on or from these web sites or external sources. If you decide to access any of the Linked Websites, you do so at your own risk.


We do not sell, distribute, lease or transfer the information we collect.


Management of personal data

We maintain suitable physical, technical and administrative safeguards for our Website designed to protect against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the information we collect through our Website.


Any Personal Information collected by or through our Website will be used only for the purpose it was provided and as described in this Privacy Notice. Once Personal Information is no longer necessary, we will destroy the Personal Information in accordance with its record retention and destruction policy.


Information we collect

Our Website collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. For example, we analyze Website traffic to identify what visitors visit so we can tailor our Website accordingly.


How we use your information

Our web site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various web site services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or phone number.


Sharing your information

Your information may be shared with other members of the Whitmer Law firm to provide the services you have requested or authorized. We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose.
