BOND, SCHOENECK & KING, PLLC has created this privacy statement because of our steadfast commitment to protecting your privacy.
The Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC Website (collectively “Bond” or “bsk.com”) is provided to support Bond’s full service law firm counseling individuals, companies, not-for-profits and public sector entities in a wide spectrum of practice areas. Use of this site for any purposes other than that for which it is intended is unauthorized and prohibited.
We only collect your personal information (such as your name, address, or telephone number) if you provide it to us voluntarily. Personal information collected on bsk.com may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Bond (and its affiliates and agents) maintain facilities. In the event that you voluntarily provide us with personal information through bsk.com, you acknowledge and agree that Bond may store, process, and transfer your personal information outside your country.
The bsk.com website uses Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to help us understand, in aggregate, the age, gender and interests of visitors to bsk.com. This Google Analytics tool does not reveal your name or other identifying information to Bond. Further, Bond does not combine the information collected through use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. The information received from Google Analytics is used only to improve bsk.com, and the type of information displayed to bsk.com visitors so we can better serve those interested in Bond. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to bsk.com by using Google Analytics' Opt-out Browser Add-on, available here.
The information and services described on bsk.com are not intended for children under the age of 16. Bond does not knowingly collect any information from children. If we learn that we have collected or received personally identifiable information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
Bond provides a secure server to protect your information from being viewed by an outside user. The technology transmits and receives scrambled data, which is decoded on the server side. It is our intent to keep any personal information you provide us (such as name, postal address, telephone number, or e-mail address), confidential, unless we are required by law to divulge it. The personal information you may provide is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information (such as to reply to your inquiry).
Surveys and E-mail
Bond may request information through surveys, which users may choose to participate in on a voluntary basis. Information gathered may be used for marketing and promotional purposes or to notify you of new content, among other uses. If you e-mail us with questions or comments, we may use your email address or other address in order to respond to you. We may also share your questions or comments with a third party to assist in our response. We may file your comments for future reference, or we may discard the information after we have reviewed it. Under no circumstances do we share information about visitors with external organizations. By communicating with Bond through its website, you are consenting to our uses of your information as set forth above.
Bond does not use interactive features at this time and while bsk.com would always strive to protect users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online through interactive features such as forums, message boards, chat rooms, or similar services that are specifically designed to be visible to other users. You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you choose to submit via those media can be read, collected, and used by other participants and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit when you engage in such activities.
Bond may also use Facebook features and tools, including pixel tags added to bsk.com, that allow data about actions of visitors to be sent to Facebook to track conversions and to allow Bond to create custom audiences for the courses, products or services Bond may advertise on Facebook. We may also provide Facebook with other data we have collected about you for this purpose, using Facebook tools that allow data such as email addresses and phone numbers to be locally hashed on our system before we upload and pass such data to Facebook. Facebook's use of such data is governed by Facebook's Data Use Policy. You can adjust Facebook ad settings here. You can also manage the interest-based advertising you receive or completely opt-out of receiving such advertising by indicating your choice here.
Links to third-party sites
This site may contain links to sites owned or operated by parties other than Bond. Bond does not control outside sites and is not responsible for their content, security and confidentiality. Inclusion of links to an outside site does not imply any endorsement of the material on the site or, unless expressly stated otherwise, any sponsorship, affiliation, or association with its owner, operator, or sponsor.
Bond occasionally hires other companies to provide services on our behalf; for example, to process event registrations, credit card transactions, webinars, blogs, and to provide you with information on upcoming events, etc. Bond will provide these companies only with the information they need to deliver the services, and, where applicable, such companies will be contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
In certain appropriate circumstances we will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or in other special cases, such as an attempted breach of the bsk.com security, without notice to you.

This website contains general information about Bond and is not intended to serve as a source of legal advice for any purpose. Neither receipt of information presented on this site nor any email or other electronic communication sent to Bond or its lawyers through this site will create an attorney-client relationship, and no such email or communication will be treated as confidential.

Please do not take any legal action based upon the information contained in this blog without first seeking legal counsel, as laws and regulations may vary by jurisdiction. The use of our blog in no way creates an attorney-client relationship between you and Bond, and no attorney-client relationship will exist until an agreement has been entered into between you and Bond.
