Your continued use of our Site following notice of a change will constitute your binding acceptance of the changes.

1.       Information We Collect and How We Use It

Sophos Law may collect Personal Information (defined below) from Site visitors at different points. Generally, we collect Personal Information when you provide it directly to us.

1.1.       Personal Information Defined

The term “Personal Information” as used in this privacy policy refers to information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact an individual or information that, when used together with other information, can be used to identify, locate, or contact an individual. Personal Information does not include any information posted on any public portion of our Site.

1.2.       Information We Collect

You are not required to register as a user to access the Site. However, we automatically gather certain information and store it in log files. This information includes:

While you are not required to do so, you can contact us through the Site and provide us with Personal Information, such as your name and email.

Sophos Law does not have a duty to treat non-client information as confidential and will not do so.

1.3.       How We Use Your Information

All of the information you provide to us while accessing our Site will be used to properly display and provide access to our Site or improve our Site. If you opt to contact us through our Site, we will use the information you provide to contact and respond to your message.

2.       Tracking Technology Used

When you access our Site, we collect certain information by automated or electronic means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags and web beacons, browser analysis tools, and server logs.

2.1       Google Analytics

We also use tools provided by Google, such as Google Analytics, to track use of the Site.

Please note that disabling cookies may disable many of the features available through the Site. We therefore recommend that you leave cookies enabled.

2.2.       Do Not Track

3.      Security

Although no data transmission can be guaranteed to be completely secure, we follow generally accepted standards to protect information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. These standards are reasonably designed to:

(i) Ensure the security and confidentiality of your information;
