a) APPLICABILITY OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT


i) Scope. This Privacy Statement applies to information LDDKR collects from users of the LDDKR Site and applies to your use of the LDDKR site. It does not apply to information received by LDDKR from you in the course of an attorney-client relationship, or received or collected by LDDKR offline or through any other means.


ii) Individual User Information. If you are a client of LDDKR, we seek to protect the confidentiality of your information in accordance with the applicable professional standards of conduct. However, if you choose to submit personal information to LDDKR through the LDDKR Site (for example, to sign up to receive LDDKR publications), we will store and use that information in accordance with this Privacy Statement unless you notify us otherwise as described below.


iii) Child Privacy. The LDDKR Site is not directed to, nor intended for use by, minors. If LDDKR becomes aware that it received personal information of minors, it will delete that information.


iv) Third Party Sites. This Privacy Statement also does not apply to information you submit to websites not controlled by LDDKR, even if linked to the LDDKR Site, including third party providers of webinar services offered to users of the LDDKR Site. You should read and understand the privacy policies applicable to such third party sites and service providers.


b) INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT In general, you may use the LDDKR Site without providing any information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). However, as described in greater detail below, you may choose to provide Personal Information to us. In addition, we will store and use information about you, including information about where and when you browse our website (“Visitor Information”), to continually improve the quality of our business and our website, as further described below.


i) Personal Information. You may choose to sign up through the LDDKR Site to receive certain publications and information from LDDKR. You also may contact us by e-mail through the LDDKR Site. In either case, you may be asked to provide us with Personal Information, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, employer’s name and your title. We use this information in order to provide you with the publications and information you requested and to respond to your comments and questions about our services and this website. We may also use your Personal Information to send you additional information that we believe may be of interest to you.


ii) Visitor Information. When you use the LDDKR website, we may collect certain information to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, gather broad demographic information and generate user statistics. The Visitor Information we collect includes your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your Internet host company (e.g., AOL), your browser software (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer), your software platform (e.g., Windows 2000), the duration of your visit to our site, and the domain (e.g., .COM, .NET, .JP) of the site from which you arrived at our site.


iii) Storage of Information. Our Site employs browser cookies to store users’ preferences and record session information. A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your browser on your hard drive. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the website uses to track the pages you've visited, but the only Personal Information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. We may use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of the information we supply to you and other users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. We do not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor do we share this information or sell it to any third party. If you prefer not to receive cookies through the website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. However, doing so may hinder your ability to access, use or navigate portions of the website.


c) SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION


i) Personal Information. We may need to share your Personal Information (including e-mail address) when we believe good faith disclosure is required by law, or to third parties who are providing services to LDDKR as needed to provide such services and subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations. We reserve the right to disclose information about you, including data on which pages you have visited, to third parties if we feel it is necessary to protect the security of our systems, website, business, users or others.


ii) Visitor Information. Visitor Information may be provided to third parties at LDDKR’s discretion so long as the information is not linked to your Personal Information.


iii) Transfer of Practice. We may provide and transfer to third parties any or all information regarding the LDDKR Site, including your Personal Information and Visitor Information, in connection with the transfer of all or a portion of LDDKR’s practice, whether by merger, acquisition or otherwise.


d) GOVERNING LAW. The LDDKR website is hosted within the United States. By providing any Personal Information to the Site, you consent to the collection, processing, transfer, and storage of such information in the United States and any other country where LDDKR or its service provider maintains offices, even if such country has a different level of privacy protection than the protection available under your local law. If you are a user accessing this website from any region with regulations or laws governing personal data collection, use and disclosure, that differ from United States laws/regulations, please note that through your continued use of this website, which is governed by U.S. Law, this Privacy Statement, and our Terms of Use, you are transferring Personal Information to the United States and you consent to that transfer.


e) YOUR CHOICES AND OPTING-OUT. The LDDKR website provides current subscribers the opportunity to opt-out of receiving email from us at any time, to update your email subscription information and to review and request changes to your Personal Information that LDDKR has collected through the LDDKR Site.

You may also notify us of your opt-out request by phoning us at 407-843-4600 and ask for the firm's general counsel.


f) SECURITY MEASURES. We use commercially reasonable security measures designed to protect against unauthorized access to Personal Information under our control, including physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. However, please be aware that, despite these efforts, data transmission over the Internet is inherently insecure and we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted or provided through the LDDKR Site. Once we received your transmission, we use appropriate efforts to ensure its security on our systems, but we do not accept liability for unintentional disclosure.


g) CHANGES. We may change this Privacy Statement from time to time, and such changes will be effective upon posting the amended terms to the LDDKR website.
