Collection of Information.
As with many websites, the Firm Websites collect certain information about visitors, even when they are not logged in. The Firm may record your IP address, the URLs of the websites and pages you visit (before, during and after your visit to any Firm Website), the times and dates of such visits, information about the computer hardware and software you use and other information that may be available. Also, the Firm may place “cookies” on your computer to recognize you on return visits to enable the Firm to enhance your browsing experience, as well as to collect additional information about you. You may adjust your browser settings or use other means to prevent cookies from being placed on your computer, but doing so may result in reduced functionality and a less personalized browsing experience.
During registration and at other times when you visit Firm Websites, the Firm may ask you to provide certain additional information about yourself, including your name, contact information, the organization you come from and certain other information that the Firm may use to identify you. If you choose not to provide such information, you may not be permitted to access certain Firm Websites, or certain Content or Services.
Use of Information.
The Firm uses the information that it collects about you to improve your browsing experience by personalizing the Firm Websites to your interest, and also to help the Firm select Content and Services that you may find interesting and useful. Information about the Content you visit and Services you use may be used alone or in conjunction with information collected from other users to help the Firm tailor the Firm Websites and its other products and services to better suit the needs and interests of you and other users.
Information that you provide may also be used as part of the Firm’s effort to keep you informed about events, special offers and selected products and services that may be of interest to you. In some cases, the Firm may contact you with information from carefully selected third parties, but the Firm will not provide information to third parties for such purposes. In other cases, your information might be shared with a third party pursuant to a process that contemplates such sharing but which you knowingly initiate.
The Firm reserves the right to disclose any information that it obtains through any Firm Website to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities, if required by law or any governmental agency.
Transfers of Information.
Reviewing and Updating Your Information.
After you have registered on any Firm Website, you may review and update your registration information by following the procedure set forth in the applicable Firm Website. From time to time, the Firm may contact you to ask you to keep this information current. By doing so, you can help the Firm notify you of new developments and news from the Firm and the Firm Websites, as well as changes to the provisions of this Agreement.
