Transmission of the materials and information contained herein is not intended to create, and receipt thereof does not constitute formation of, an attorney-client relationship. Internet subscribers and online readers should not rely upon this information for any purpose without seeking legal advice from a licensed attorney in the reader's state. The information contained in this website is provided only as general information that DeCotiis expressly disclaims all liability in respect to actions taken or not taken based on any or all the contents of this website.

You may send us email. However, if you communicate with us in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you, you should not send us confidential or sensitive information via email because your communication will not be treated as privileged or confidential. If you communicate with us by email in connection with a matter for which we already represent you, you should note that the security of Internet email is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential email messages that are not encrypted, you accept the risks of such uncertainty and possible lack of confidentiality over the Internet.
DeCotiis does not wish to represent anyone desiring representation based upon viewing this website in a state where this website does not comply with all laws and ethical rules of that state.
DeCotiis does not necessarily endorse, and is not responsible for, any third-party content that may be accessed through this website.
DeCotiis' web site collects personally identifiable information such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. only from visitors who voluntarily provide such information in response to prompts we have placed at various points on our web site. Decotiis also will collect e-mail addresses from the e-mails you send us. DeCotiis will use the personally identifiable information we collect online only to send you information about firm events or publications. We also provide you the opportunity to decline placement on our mailing lists. The data we hold is kept securely and only accessed by authorized personnel.
Since any personally identifiable information you provide us through this web site is entirely voluntary on your part, you should take care to limit your web site disclosures to information that is not highly sensitive or valuable to you. DeCotiis maintains security standards and practices we believe appropriate for the protection of your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access while in storage. Under recognized risk management principles, such precautions are maintained at a moderate level of security that the firm considers commensurate with the protection needed for confidential information of a moderately sensitive nature.
DeCotiis's computers also automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site, like the type of browser you are using, your IP address or the domain name of your Internet service provider. They also collect aggregate information on the site pages our users visit. Non- personally identifiable information will be used only for internal business purposes and then discarded.
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.
In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry.
To the extent permitted by law, DeCotiis will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose any of the information it collects online without your permission. Exceptions are disclosures to third parties who monitor the web site and to parties who assist or cooperate in preparing firm mailings.
Except for the uses described above, we will not contact you about other matters unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside DeCotiis. If you are interested in applying for a job at the firm and choose to submit resume information by email, we will use it only for the internal application review process. We will not voluntarily share, rent or sell it outside the firm.
However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request.
Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.
Our site and the materials within it may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
DeCotiis' web site may also post information about programs and events sponsored by or co-sponsored other firms or organizations. Should you choose to register electronically for any of these events, DeCotiis will have no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to our Web site will not apply.
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
When you visit our website we send you a cookie. Cookies may be used in the following ways:
To enable the personalization features on our website (which give you the ability to recall recently viewed pages and see information which you have input on line).
To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. We cannot identify you personally in this way.
Two types of cookies may be used on this website, session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site, and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled.
We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
We reserve the right to revise this policy or any part of it from time to time.
