Privacy Policy

Takis Nonprofit Law PLLC takes your privacy very seriously. This Privacy Policy applies to information collected online from users of this website. In this policy, you can learn what kind of information is collected, when and how that information might be used, how the information is protected, and the choices you have with respect to your personal information.

What personal information is collected and how is it collected?

We collect information about this website’s users in three ways: directly from the user, from our Web server logs and through cookies. The firm uses the information primarily to provide you with a personalized experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. We don't share any of your information with third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy. The following describes the three ways in which we collect information about users:

User-supplied information: If you fill out the “contact” form on this website, we will ask you to provide your name and email address. 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 Takis Nonprofit Law PLLC and its principals will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission. Information that you provide to the firm through the contact form will be used so that we may respond to your inquiry. The firm and its principals 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.

Web server logs: When you visit this website, we may track information about your visit and store that information in web server logs, which are records of the activities on this website. The servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. Examples of the information we may collect include:

  • your unique Internet protocol address;

  • the name of your unique Internet service provider;

  • the town/city, county/state and country from which you access this website;

  • the kind of browser or computer you use;

  • the number of links you click within the site;

  • the date and time of your visit;

  • the web page from which you arrived to this website;

  • the pages you viewed on the site; and

  • certain searches/queries that you conducted via this website.

The information we collect in web server logs helps us administer the site, analyze its usage, protect this website and its content from inappropriate use and improve the user's experience.

Cookies: In order to offer and provide a customized and personal service, this website may use cookies and similar technologies to store and help track information about you. Cookies are simply small pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. We use cookies to help remind us who you are and to help you navigate this website during your visits. Cookies also can tell us where visitors go on a website and allow us to save preferences for you so you won't have to re-enter them each time you visit. The use of cookies is relatively standard. Most Internet browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can use your browser to either notify you when you receive a cookie or to disable cookies. If you wish to disable cookies from this site, you can do so using your browser, but you should understand that some features of many sites may not function properly if you don't accept cookies.

How do we use your information?

The information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

To improve this website: We continually strive to improve this website based on the information and feedback we receive from you.

To improve the firm’s services: Your information helps us to more efficiently provide legal services, and more effectively respond to your needs, requests, opinions, and comments. 

To send periodic emails: The email address you provide will only be used to send emails that are responsive to your questions and requests, and may be used to send periodic emails regarding news, updates, or other information. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include unsubscribe instructions within each email message. 

To whom do we disclose your information?

We will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other user information to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows:

  • to agents, website vendors and/or contractors who may use it on the firm’s behalf or in connection with their relationship with the firm (for example, accounting firms and software providers);

  • 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

  • to affiliated companies with common ownership (for example, corporate parents or subsidiaries);

  • in connection with the transfer of the firm’s business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another firm or if we are liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings),

  • if we believe in good faith that sharing the information is necessary to protect the legal rights, safety, security of the firm, the firm’s agents or employees, and the firm’s property;

  • when required by law (in other words, when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure in a matter of public safety or policy, or when disclosure is compelled by a court or other governmental entity); and

  • to other parties with your consent.

How long do we retain your information?

We will retain your information until the earlier of:

  • you asking us to delete the information;

  • the firm’s decision to cease using our existing data providers; or

  • we decide that the value in retaining the information is outweighed by the costs of retaining it.

How do we protect your information?

We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors.

How can I correct, amend or delete my personal information and/or opt out of future communications?

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can contact us at any time via the contact form on this website, or by using the phone number, email address, or mailing address displayed at the bottom of this website in order to: 

  • ask what information we have about you, if any;

  • change/correct any information we have about you;

  • ask us to delete any information we have about you; and/or

  • opt out of future communications from us.

“Do Not Track” Settings

Some browsers offer “do not track” settings that enable users to restrict the personal information that websites collect. Since this website does not collect personal information other than personal information that you voluntarily and expressly provide, and does not share your personal information with third party external websites other than as described above, your use of “do not track” settings will not affect the functionality of this website, and this website will not override your “do not track” preferences.

Other Websites

This website may contain links to other websites, or tools that facilitate the sharing of the content on this website on your social media networks. Your use of such links or tools is voluntary, and Takis Nonprofit Law PLLC is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third party.
