Information Collection
A&C is the sole owner of the information collected on this web site, www.aldrichandcox.com.  A&C collects information from our visitors on the "Contact Us" page and on the “Subscribe to Our Newsletter” link.  In addition, there are various links throughout our web site that bring visitors to our "Contact Us" and newsletter subscription pages.

We request information from the visitor on our "Contact Us" page as well as our newsletter subscription page in order to respond to inquiries made by or to provide materials requested by visitors of our web site.  Visitors requesting information or a subscription to our newsletter must provide the requested information (i.e., name, e-mail, address).

In addition, we track subscriber usage information from our bi-monthly newsletter that is distributed electronically.

Information Use
Collected information is used for responding to the inquiries, providing requested materials, as well as maintaining a newsletter subscription database. The collected information is also added to our electronic and regular mailing lists to enable us to send periodic letters, newsletters or other materials to you (prospective clients or other interested parties) relating to the professional services we offer.  If we have trouble processing a request for materials, the information is used to contact the visitor.

Information gathered via the distribution of our newsletter is used to determine how many recipients (and which ones) open the newsletter email, which articles garner the most interest, who navigates to our web site via the e-mail and how often the newsletter is forwarded to others and by whom.

Log Files

The A&C Web Site (through the Internet Service Provider) logs IP addresses and browser types for systems administration purposes.  This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks in order to analyze trends, administer the site, track visitors' movements in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. A visitor's session will be tracked, but the visitor will be anonymous.

Cookies

Our Web site does not use cookies.  A cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor's computer tied to information about the visitor.

Sharing

We do not share visitors' information and we take every precaution to protect our visitors' information. All client, prospect and subscriber contact information gathered and maintained by A&C is considered proprietary and confidential and is not released to third parties. Though we make every effort to preserve visitor privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law or when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our web site.

Choice/Opt-out
Our visitors are given the opportunity to opt-out of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. Our "Contact Us" form has an opt-out mechanism so visitors who submit a specific request for information, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email and postal address off of our lists.

Visitors who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or other promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any newsletter email communication or by contacting us at the above address or the visitor may contact us at 716-675-6300 to opt-out..

Links

This Web site, from time to time, contains links to other sites. Please be aware that A&C is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our visitors to be aware of this when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site..

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement section of our web site, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our visitors are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

If, however, we are going to use visitors' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify visitors via e-mail.  Visitors will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner.  However, if visitors have opted out of all communication with the site, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner.  In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect visitor information already stored in our database, we will still post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying visitors of the change.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting Personal Information
If a visitor's previously provided personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), A&C will update their records upon notification.
