Domain Information Collection
The publishing lawyer or Nutter may collect domain information to enable us to analyze how our visitors use this site. This data enables us to become more familiar with which people visit our site, how often they visit, and what parts of the site they visit most often. The publishing lawyer or Nutter uses this information to improve its Web-based offerings. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.
Some pages on this site may use “cookies”—small files that the site places on your hard drive for identification purposes. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID to track the pages visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
The publishing lawyer or Nutter will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the publishing lawyer, Nutter or our website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the publishing lawyer or Nutter; or, (c) act under necessary circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our Web site or the public.
We may also share your personal information outside Nutter as follows:
- With those of our contractors and their employees that need your information to process it on our behalf, to provide services to you that you have requested or to contact you on our behalf ;
- As otherwise required to provide you with a product or service that you have requested.
Nutter strives to protect your personal information from unauthorized use or disclosure; however, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal information when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often and use a combination of letters, numbers and non-alphanumeric characters (such as punctuation marks). Do not send sensitive, non-public personal information, such as social security number, driver’s license number or financial account number, in an insecure manner, such as by email. Nutter will never contact you on the Internet or by email requesting such sensitive, non-public personal information.
