  • In general, you do not have to provide personally identifiable information (“PII”) to use our website.
  • You may choose to provide your PII to us via the website. For example, certain services which you may subscribe for through our website (e.g., e-mail alerts and updates) may require you to provide PII, such as your name, address, e-mail address and other contact information in order to take advantage of the service.
  • Because it is not possible to anticipate every conceivable context in which information might be provided to us through our website, we can provide no assurance that any PII you choose to provide to us via our website will be maintained as private. You should not submit private or confidential information to us via the website.

PII collected through our website may be stored in Duval & Stachenfeld 's contact database where it may be combined with pre-existing contact information in that database.
  • We may use your PII (in some cases, in conjunction with your non-PII) mainly to administer your inquiries and communicate with you. We may also use your PII in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.
  • If you sign up to receive news, alerts or publications from Duval & Stachenfeld, submit a request for a legal education seminar, or contact us through the “Contact Us” link, we use the information you provide to send you the communications you request and/or respond to your inquiry, and may also use the information to communicate with you about other topics we believe may be of interest to you.
