Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy is important to us. This notice describes how Cozen O’Connor collects and uses information from you when you visit www.stateagelections.com.

INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THE COZEN WEBSITE

Personally Identifiable Information

The majority of the information provided by Cozen O’Connor on the Cozen website is available without Cozen O’Connor collecting any information that is identifiable to you as an individual such as your name, email address, street address or telephone number (Personally Identifiable Information). You can review almost the entire Cozen website without disclosing any Personally Identifiable Information. However, Cozen O’Connor does collect Personally Identifiable Information that you may provide voluntarily. Some examples of times when Cozen O’Connor collects Personally Identifiable Information include when you:

    • Submit an online request for information about Cozen O’Connor
    • Ask us about employment opportunities and send us your resume or other employment experience information
    • Complete a survey
    • Send us an e-mail message

You have a choice as to whether to provide Cozen O’Connor with any Personally Identifiable Information. Although you are not required to disclose any Personally Identifiable Information to us, portions of the Cozen website may not be available to you without your providing this information.

Due to the business and legal oriented nature of the Cozen website, it is not designed to appeal to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly request, receive or collect any information from children.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

The second type of information collected on the Cozen website is Non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as the type of Web browser you use, your domain name and links you may have used to locate the Cozen website, but which otherwise does not identify you individually.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED

We do not sell or rent any information which we receive from the Cozen website. Except as stated in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with anyone outside of Cozen O’Connor and those hired by Cozen O’Connor to perform work on its behalf.

Cozen O’Connor uses any Personally Identifiable Information you provide in a limited number of ways. We may use your Personally Identifiable Information to (i) provide you with information about Cozen O’Connor and its services or (ii) enhance or update the Cozen website or (iii) compile demographic statistics about users of the Cozen website. We may also, on occasion, combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from other parties to enhance our ability to provide you with information about Cozen O’Connor and its services that we think may be of interest to you.

In addition, Cozen O’Connor may hire other companies to perform services on our behalf such as facilitating certain aspects of the Cozen website or sending you email. These companies may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. Cozen O’Connor may also use third-party ad servers or ad networks to deliver ads to you on Cozen O’Connor’s behalf. These third-party ad servers may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. They also may also collect and use Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your visits to the Cozen website in order to send advertisements that may be of interest to you.

On an aggregate basis only, we may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about users of the Cozen website. Cozen O’Connor will never disclose any Personally Identifiable Information as part of this aggregate information but we may lend, sell, share or otherwise disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information with others so we can perform research and provide the results to third parties, enhance and market the Cozen website, and conduct accounting and process record keeping functions. Additionally, we may use IP address information to count and track aggregate visits to the Cozen website, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Cozen website. Cozen O’Connor does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable so while a particular user’s session can be tracked, the user remains completely anonymous. We also may use this information to assist us in the ongoing technical development of the Cozen website.

Cozen O’Connor will make every effort to preserve user privacy but we may need to disclose Personally Identifiable Information when required by law or if we have a good-faith belief that the action is necessary to comply with a pending judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Cozen O’Connor or to protect our rights or the rights of others, to fight fraud, identity theft, to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Cozen O’Connor, its employees, members or others.

Also, in the unlikely event that Cozen O’Connor, or substantially all of its assets, is acquired by another firm, personally identifiable information may then be transferred.

3rd Party Advertising Cookies Opt-Out

Cozen O’Connor is dedicated to providing privacy on the Internet.  In addition to developing our privacy policy, we have provided you the opportunity to opt out of future 3rd party advertising cookies.

Cozen O’Connor allows third parties to place cookies on our site for advertising purposes.  This Online Privacy Statement does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these vendors. These vendors have their own privacy policies and may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI).  To remove yourself from some or all NAI member advertising programs, please visit the NAI Opt-Out Page and follow the relevant instructions.  Please note that if you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, or if you use a different computer or Internet browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.

Other Websites and Links

We may include links to other websites that we think will be of interest to you or operated by our business partners, affiliates, advertisers and others. These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and Cozen O’Connor cannot be responsible for their policies or activities. Please contact those third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Clear Gifs

Cozen O’Connor also uses a feature of your browser called a “cookie.” Your cookie automatically identifies your computer – but not you – to our servers when you visit the Cozen website and allows us to correlate your computer with certain usage patterns which are stored in our log files. We use cookies to gather general, aggregate statistics about the overall popularity and usage of the Cozen website. Cozen O’Connor also uses more temporary cookies, often referred to as session cookies, to keep a user logged into the system and aid in the exchange of information between pages without loss of data. Such a cookie, however, is only stored for the current browsing session and is deleted once the browser is closed. Cozen O’Connor can also only read cookies from the Cozen website. Search for Cookies under your Web browser’s Help menu for more information on cookie management features available to you. If your browser is set to reject all cookies, the Cozen website may not function properly.

Cozen O’Connor may also collect information through the use of clear gifs (also called Web beacons and Web bugs) in selected email messages we send to you. These are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in HTML-based emails and used to let us know which emails we send are opened. Clear gifs may also see or read cookies on your computer. When authorized by Cozen O’Connor, third parties specializing in monitoring aggregate statistical use of our site with whom we contract, may use cookies, our web log files, web beacons, and other monitoring technologies to compile anonymous aggregate data.

Accessing and Updating Information

Cozen O’Connor does not currently have an online method for users to delete their Personally Identifiable Information contained in our database. However, you may change or update the Personally Identifiable Information we have collected, request that we delete it, or request that we change how we use it by sending an email to [email protected] with your instructions.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy not just the first time you visit the Cozen website but periodically afterward since we may modify our Privacy Policy from time to time. The date of the last update of the Privacy Policy will always be posted below.

THIS PRIVACY POLICY WAS LAST REVISED ON: December 1, 2005.

If we make any substantive changes to our Privacy Policy in the future with regard to how we use your Personally Identifiable Information, we will incorporate those changes here. Your continued use of the Cozen website after the changes are posted constitutes your agreement to the changes, both with regard to information we have previously collected from you and with regard to information we collect from you in the future. If you do not agree to the changes, please discontinue use of the Cozen website.

International Users

Like almost every website, the Cozen website is accessible around the world. By visiting the Cozen website and providing your information, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information can be stored for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy. We process and store your information in North America and your information may be stored on servers located outside your residential jurisdiction and which may have less stringent privacy practices than your own. If you access the Cozen website from outside the United States, your usage of the Cozen website constitutes consent to the transfer of your data outside of your country and to North America.

Security

We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that you provide to us and that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
