Who at DLF has access to your information?
At DLF only our employees and agents will have access to your information unless and until you provide us with permission to share your information. Even when we share information with your consent, the Attorney-Client privilege attaches to individuals and entities who work for DLF as independent contractors or agents.
At no time will we sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to outside parties, except in the following circumstances:
– to agents, website vendors and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their relationship with us;
– if we are unable to assist with your matter, but know an unaffiliated attorney or firm that may be able to help you, we may refer you and share information you provided us with that party; and
– as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of our business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another firm or if we are liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings), or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.
How is your information protected?
At DLF we take certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.
What do we collect and what do we do with such information or personal data?
User-supplied 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.
Likewise, DLF does not accept documents from potential clients unless and until an offer of representation has been made and a written contract has been executed between DLF and a potential client. Once such agreement is executed the potential client becomes an active client and DLF will then accept documents. Please do not submit any documents to our office and if you do so choose to submit documents, you do so at your own risk and we will not be responsible nor liable to you for the consequences of you sending documents to our office unsolicited.
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 below.
