This Privacy Policy describes the information collected by the Law Office of Marisa C. Nelson (the “Law Office”) from users of this website and the ways in which that information is used.

The Law Office only collects personally identifying information when you fill out and submit the form on the “Contact Me” page, or make a similar explicit request on this site. The Law Office uses this information only to respond to your form submission. By submitting your information, you consent to the collection and use of this information by the Law Office. Your submission of information via this website, and any response the Law Office may send you, does not create an attorney–client relationship. While we make reasonable efforts to respond to such form submissions, we cannot guarantee a response. Please do not send urgent or confidential information via this form.

We may also automatically collect certain information when you use the website, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, the type of device you are using, the address of a referring site (if any), and your activity on the website. We do not combine this information with or link it to any of the personally identifiable information mentioned above; it is viewed only in aggregate. As with many other sites, we may also use "coookies" or web beacons. These are small files that your browser places on your computer. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the website, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our website, and to improve our website. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. 

The Law Office will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose any of the information it collects through this website, except in the following special cases: (1) when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of the Law Office, or anyone that could be harmed by such activities; (2) when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; and (3) in situations involving threats to the safety of any person.

If we make any changes to this privacy policy, we will inform you by posting those changes on this website.


Effective May 1, 2012.
