This policy applies to information that is collected through the Phil IP Law Group’s website. If you have retained this firm to represent you, our privacy and confidentiality obligations are described in the attorney-client agreement. This policy only addresses interactions occurring as you visit the firm’s online page or portal. This policy does not apply to information collected by:

Rest assured that your privacy is important to us at Phil IP Law Group. That said, we want to take some time to explain to you our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used on our website.
- The information we collect
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. – unless you choose to fill out a ‘Contact Us’ form, found on many of the pages of the site or to email us directly.
- How we use Non-Personal Information
We may, from time to time, automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our website, such as: the type of browser you are using, the operating system or platform you are using to access the website as well as referrer data identifying the web pages you visited prior to and after visiting the website and your movement and activity within the website, device type, domain server and the domain name of your Internet Service Provider. We may use a variety of technologies that automatically collect non-personally identifiable information. We use aggregated non-personally identifiable information to analyze and improve the design, use and content of our website.
In the ordinary course of business, we use personal information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry or process an application form you have completed on various sections of our website.
Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any third parties who provide services on our behalf. If we transfer your information outside of the United States, you should know that the applicable data protection laws may differ, and by visiting this site, you expressly agree to such transfer.
- How we use Personal Information
We use your Personal Information to fulfill the purpose(s) for which you have provided it, to respond to and process your specific requests for information, and for any other purpose that we disclose to you at the time we collect your Personal Information. We may use some Personal Information to send you updates, news, conferences, or other information, which we deem may be important to our visitors. We also may share Personal Information with our contractors and service providers whom we retain to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Information confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.
If you provide Personal Information to us via the website in the context of an event that Phil IP Law Group sponsors or hosts with another company, you may also be providing the Personal Information to the co-sponsor or co-host. For purposes of events, we will obtain your consent to share your first and last name and applicable company name with our co-sponsor or co-host. For example, if we hold an event with an accounting firm, we would give the accounting firm your registration information to allow them to track reservations.
