  3. Changes to and Questions about the Privacy Notice


Spencer Fane and the authors do not collect any personally identifiable information from you (e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) unless you voluntarily choose to submit or otherwise disclose such information to us, including information submitted or disclosed by mail, telephone, fax, or electronically, including but not limited to posting on the any blog contained within this site. Additionally, your browser may provide certain information such as your email address or the site you linked from to this site’s servers and you may be providing other information when you complete a search request on this site. We will not sell, trade, or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties unrelated to Spencer Fane. Spencer Fane and the authors will use your personally identifiable information to respond to your request for information or to complete an online registration for an event or to receive communications from Spencer Fane. If you wish to change any personally identifiable information submitted to Spencer Fane, or if you wish to opt out of our mailing list or email list, please do so by emailing

Additionally, Spencer Fane and the authors directly or through its agents or service providers may collect automatically some other information about your visit to the website using cookies, log analysis software, and other aggregate tracking technologies. This data is anonymous and contains no personally identifiable information. This usage information is collected to help us manage and administer our website, improve the content of our website, and customize and improve the website user experience.

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. If you prefer not to receive cookies through our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you choose not to accept cookies, some of the features of our site may be disabled or rendered unusable.

Information from Children: Children under 18 years old are not the target audience of this site. By making this site available to the public, we do not intend to solicit personal information from these children. If you are under the age of 18, please do not provide any personal information about yourself to us. Individuals under 18 years of age should consult with their parent or guardian about the use of this website.

Monitoring, Enforcement, and Legal Requests: Spencer Fane and the authors have no obligation to monitor the website or the use of the website, or to retain the content of any user communication. However, Spencer Fane reserves the right at all times to monitor, review, retain, and/or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, or to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities in investigating a claim of illegal activity. We may use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to protect our service, website, clients, potential clients, or others.


Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts: Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Spencer Fane and the authors cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. Spencer Fane and the authors will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to protect the information.

Security: Any information provided to Spencer Fane and the authors is treated with care and discretion. However, if you communicate through this website, remember that communicated information is not confidential and is not subject to the attorney-client privilege. We may have prior client relationships or other potential conflicts that could prevent us from representing you or treating your communications as confidential. No attorney-client relationship is created unless a Spencer Fane attorney has gathered conflict information, determined that no conflicts exist, received Spencer Fane approval to enter into a client-attorney relationship, and has affirmatively communicated agreement of such a relationship to the client.


Spencer Fane and the authors reserve the right to change this notice for any reason at any time without notification to you. When we do so, changes in the privacy notice will be posted on our website and will be effective immediately. Please review the notice periodically for changes.
