The Bowling Firm aims to provide the highest quality legal services to its clients. In order to do so, it collects and process certain information that you provide. The Firm takes your privacy seriously and is committed to protecting your personal data.
WHAT THE FIRM COLLECTS AND HOW THE FIRM DOES IT
The Firm collects and stores general traffic, website usage, browser information, length-of-stay, and location data in log files. It collects and uses this information on an anonymous, aggregated basis. Which means, the Firm does not connect this information to a name or other personal information.
PERSONAL INFORMATION (NON-FINANCIAL)
The Firm may collect all or some of the following personal information: first and last name, email address, company contact details, and other information for the following purposes:
Alerts and Announcements: The Firm uses your contact information to provide you with e-alerts about legal developments and information about Firm sponsored seminars and events. The Firm always gives you the opportunity to opt-out of these communications.
Other Requests: When you make an inquiry on this website or request information, the Firm collects contact details along with a description of your problem.
When you contact the Firm via email, the Firm may collect your contact information and any information you include in your email.
WHAT THE FIRM DOES WITH THE DATA IT COLLECTS
The Firm processes your information for the legitimate interest of communicating with clients, prospective clients, and other users about the Firm’s legal services and its events and publications related to developments in the law. Processing your information for the purposes described is necessary for the Firm to do what it does and it is in both your interest and that of the Firm. If you have any questions or concerns with the processing your information for this legitimate interest, please email the Firm at email@example.com.
The Firm will ask for your consent before using your information for a purpose that extends beyond what you may reasonably expect from a law firm and that has a more significant privacy impact.
The Firm occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on its behalf, including website development and operation, preparing marketing materials, sending postal mail or email, analyzing website use, job applications, processing payments and processing data. The Firm will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are contractually prohibited from using that information for any other reason.
DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGY
The Firm evaluates, monitors, and analyzes the use of its site and its traffic patterns to help improve its website and services.
The types of technologies the Firm uses include:
IP ADDRESSES AND LOG FILES
We record the IP addresses of visitors to our website. Recording these IP addresses is necessary for the website to function. Our server software keeps access logs, error logs, and security audit logs. This collection is critical in detecting and preventing fraud or unauthorized system access and addressing threats such as a DOS attack. We do not associate this log file information with other information.
INDIRECT COLLECTION – SOCIAL NETWORKING
INDIRECT COLLECTION – ANALYTICS
The Firm uses Google Analytics to analyze the use of its website. The Firm does not transfer personal information to Google Analytics.

If you sign up to receive marketing emails, you can unsubscribe or change your preferences by clicking on the links attached to the bottom of the email.
HOW THE FIRM PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION
The Firm has appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorized way. It limits access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
The Firm also has procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. It will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where legally required to do so.
HOW LONG DOES THE FIRM KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?
The Firm keeps your information only so long as it needs it to provide the service you have requested of the Firm (e-alerts, event information, etc.) and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. When the Firm no longer needs to use your information for the purpose it was collected and there is no need for the Firm to keep it to comply with its legal obligations, the Firm will either remove it from its systems or depersonalize it so that the Firm cannot identify you.
POLICY ON CHILDREN’S INFORMATION
If you are under 18 years of age you should not provide information to the Firm without the involvement of a parent or guardian. The Firm does not collect online contact information without prior parental consent or parental notification, including an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. The Firm does not knowingly solicit personal information online from, or market online to, children under the age of 13.
