Last revised May 2016

Weiner Brodsky Kider PC (“Weiner Brodsky Kider”) provides this Privacy Policy to explain how we use and disclose personally identifiable information collected through our website, www.thewbkfirm.com (the “Website”). This Policy does not apply to information provided to us in the course of our attorney-client relationships or protected by confidentiality, the attorney-client privilege, the attorney work product doctrine or any other applicable protection. Nothing in this Privacy Policy should be construed to create an attorney-client relationship with visitors to our Website or, conversely, to detract from any of the protections resulting from such relationships.

Information We Collect

The Website does not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you expressly provide such information, such as your name, physical address, and email address, to us on a voluntary basis, for example, when subscribing to our electronic newsletter or requesting more information to be sent to you about Weiner Brodsky Kider. We may also add the personally identifiable information you expressly provide to our databases, subscriber lists, or contact lists. We may use this information to send you the subscriptions you request, to respond to your inquiries, and, from time to time, to send you information regarding events and developments that we think may be of interest to you.

If you contact us by email or otherwise through the Website, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and we may use your email address or other information you provide in your message to respond to you. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT SUBMISSION OF AN EMAIL TO WEINER BRODSKY KIDER OR TO ANY WEINER BRODSKY KIDER ATTORNEY OR ANY OTHER COMMUNICATION THROUGH THE WEBSITE DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT OR OTHER PRIVILEGED OR CONFIDENTIAL RELATIONSHIP. THEREFORE, IF YOU DISCLOSE INFORMATION IN THIS MANNER, THERE IS NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE, CONFIDENTIALITY OR ANY OTHER PROTECTION THAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH INFORMATION, AND WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE OR DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION THAT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO WEINER BRODSKY KIDER OR ITS ATTORNEYS. ACCORDINGLY, DO NOT DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION THAT YOU WISH TO REMAIN PRIVATE OR CONFIDENTIAL.

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive materials from us, you may opt out by following the instructions below under “Contact Us; Opt-Out.” On rare occasions, we may send important administrative information regarding the Website or services to users using their email addresses; because such information may be important to your use of the Website, it may not be possible to “opt out” of receiving such emails.
