Our attorneys are licensed in state and federal courts across the United States and in the United Kingdom. We do not intend to advertise or solicit businesses in jurisdictions in which our attorneys are not licensed to practice law.

Our website allows users to send electronic mail communications to our attorneys.

Our website does not collect any personally identifiable information from you unless you submit that information to us through the website. To serve you better, our website may collect non-personally identifiable information to monitor our website traffic and for statistical analysis purposes.

5. Use of Cookies

We use cookies (a small text file sent by your computer each time you visit our Site) and other tracking technologies to personalize your experience, analyze user trends, and improve the Services. These tracking technologies allow us to collect information such as your device type, browser type, interactions with our Site, your web requests, the date and time of your web request, your Internet Protocol address, the domain name of your Internet service provider and other data. If you can be identified from this information – for example by combination with other pieces of information – then we will treat this as Personal Information.

Many browsers default to accepting cookies. You may be able to change this setting in your browser and you can also clear your cookies. If you do, you may lose some functionality of our Site.

We may use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for you to browse the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site.
  • Functionality cookies. Also known as “preference cookies,” these cookies allow the Site to remember choices you have made in the past, such as what language you prefer.
  • Analytics cookies. Also known as “performance cookies,” these cookies collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions. This includes cookies from third-party analytics services if the cookies are for the exclusive use of the owner of the website visited.
  • Advertising cookies. These cookies track your online activity to help advertisers deliver more relevant advertising or to limit how many times you see an ad. These cookies can share that information with other organizations or advertisers. These are persistent cookies and almost always of third-party provenance.

If you have any questions about cookies or to generally find out more about cookies, the All About Cookies website is a trusted resource.

6. Your Choices

Cookies

You can opt-out of cookies by (a) enabling a universal opt-out mechanism or preference signal, such as Global Privacy Control (GPC) on your browser which is recognized by our U.S.-facing websites or (b) opting-out of cookies in our U.S.-facing websites’ cookie preference center.

On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive a notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off.

Note that if you turn cookies off, you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site and you may not be able to benefit from the full functionality of the Site. To find out more about cookies and similar technologies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org, and/or www.youronlinechoices.com.

Do Not Track

Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications that you do not wish such operators to track some of your online activities over time and across different websites and platforms. There is no universally agreed-upon standard for what an organization should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. Learn more about Do Not Track here.

Universal Opt-Out Mechanism

Some browsers and browser extensions support a universal opt-out mechanism or preference signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (“GPC”) that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating your choice to opt-out from certain types of data processing, including data sales. In certain territories, when we detect such a signal, we will make reasonable efforts to respect your choices indicated by a GPC setting as required by applicable law.

Communication Preferences

With your consent, Goldberg Segalla communicates with you via a variety of print and digital media. To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we use pixels that enable us to see if you open e-mails from us, if your computer supports such capabilities. You can opt out of receiving emails from us at any time. To manage your communications preferences with Goldberg Segalla — or to opt out of communications entirely — please unsubscribe at the bottom of our emails or contact us at privacy@GoldbergSegalla.com.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors use the Site. Read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here and opt out of Google Analytics here.

7. How We Share Your Information

Services Providers

We share your Personal Information with our third-party service providers who provide services such as website hosting, payment processing, data analysis, information technology, customer service, email delivery, auditing, event planning and other services.

Other

Aside from the instances described above, we may share your Personal Information:

  • to comply with the law;
  • to respond to claims or comply with legal process served on Goldberg Segalla (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant, or court order);
  • to enforce or apply our policies or agreements;
  • to protect and defend our rights or property or that of our customers, employees, visitors, or the public;
  • in connection with a business transfer, sale, liquidation, or merger;
  • if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure; and
  • to other parties only with your consent.

8. Third-Party Links

Our Site may contain links to other websites such as social media platforms, other websites, and event and partner websites. These websites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please review the Privacy Notices or Policies of those websites to understand their privacy practices.

9. International Transfers of Personal Information

The Site is operated and targeted toward audiences in the United States. If you are located in another jurisdiction, please know that your information will be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States. By using the Site and providing us with information, you consent to this transfer, processing and storage of your information in the United States. It is important to note that the privacy laws in the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in other countries such as those in the European Union. Our service providers use appropriate safeguards to transfer your Personal Information to the United States.

10. Security

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please contact us using the information in the Contact Us section below.

11. Your California Privacy Rights

This section of our Privacy Notice applies to consumers who reside in California. We adopt this section to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”).

You have the right to request that we delete Personal Information about you that we have collected from you.

As permitted by the CCPA, if you request deletion of Personal Information that we have collected about you, we, our service providers, and our contractors may be unable to comply with such a request if your Personal Information is necessary to:

  • Comply with a legal obligation.

Right to Correct

You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate information that we maintain about you.

Right to Opt-Out

You have the right to opt out of the sale or sharing of Personal Information.

We process opt-out preference signals by the consumer (i.e., whether the signal applies to the device, browser, and/or offline sales, and in what circumstances) and how the consumer can use an opt-out preference signal. You may implement opt-out preference signals here: Do Not Sell or Share my Personal Information

Retention of Personal Information

Goldberg Segalla will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice, as well to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes and enforce our legal agreements and policies. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our third-party data storage providers.

In some circumstances we may choose to anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

When deciding how long to keep your information, we consider:

  • How long we have had a relationship with you or provided our Services to you;
  • Whether we are subject to any legal obligations (e.g., any laws that require us to keep records for a certain period of time before we can delete them);
  • Whether we have taken any legal positions (e.g., in connection with any statutes of limitation).

Rather than delete your data, we might de-identify it by removing identifying details.

How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights

You or your authorized agent may make a request to access, correct, delete or opt-out of the disclosure of your Personal Information for business purposes. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child if you believe we have received their information inadvertently. You may request to exercise these rights by:

665 Main Street

Buffalo, New York 14203-1425

 

Please note that we may take steps to verify your identity and residency before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights. This might include asking for your email address. If you are requesting specific pieces of Personal Information that we have collected about you, you will also be required to email us at privacy@GoldbergSegalla.com a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are a California resident and that you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request. Note that we will not process your request to disclose specific pieces of information we have about you until we receive this signed declaration, and your request will not be considered timely submitted until we have this document in our possession.

If you use an authorized agent to exercise your rights, we may require proof of written authorization you have given the authorized agent to make the request on your behalf.

We may limit our response to your exercise of the above rights as permitted by law. We will confirm receipt of the request within 10 business days describing our verification process. We will respond to your request within 45 days or let you know if we need additional time.

Data Sharing for Direct Marketing Purposes

California Civil Code § 1798.83 permits California residents to request information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your Personal Information with certain of our affiliates and other third parties for their marketing purposes. Please tell us your preference by contacting us using the information in the Contact Us section below.

If you believe that we have received Personal Information from a child under the age of 18, you may contact us using the information in the Contact Us section below to request deletion of that information.

We do not have actual knowledge that we sell or share the Personal Information of consumers under 16 years of age.
