Our policies and terms and conditions are provided and updated here.
In general, you can visit this website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the various anonymized details about visitors to our website. Our web servers also seek (as many websites do) to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive which allows the server to identify the computer when it visits again in order to track statistical information about navigation throughout our website and from promoting our website on third-party websites, such as search engines. This cookie is not used to obtain your name or any personal data. The information that is tracked is used only for internal purposes, such as improving our site navigation and to measuring the effectiveness of our promotional placements. It is not shared with anyone other than Tate Law Offices affiliates and contractors who assist Tate Law Offices in these efforts and who are bound to confidentiality. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.
In addition, there are portions of this website where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request. The information collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, or e-mail address.
We use a third-party technology to place our advertisements on other websites. This technology will install a small “cookie” file on your computer when you view our ad. These cookies will not contain any information that personally identifies you (such as your name or e-mail address) but they will contain a randomly generated number that is unique to your browser and can be recognized by a “Web beacon” (transparent GIF file) on our site if you click through to our site from one of our ads. This allows us to keep track of how many unique visitors we have to our site and from what ads they entered, so that we can measure the effectiveness of our ads and ad placements. The privacy policies of the websites on which we advertise, and through which the cookies are installed should inform you about the cookie, and you may of course set your browser to reject cookies. To learn more about the third-party ad-serving technology that we use, cookies, and how to “opt-out,” please email us.
