How We Collect Information

As stated above, most of the information we collect is provided by you. In addition, to collect basic information we use the following technologies:

Cookies
Like many websites, ours uses cookies to remember your preferences and generally help to improve your online experience, as well as to provide us with information to check the usefulness of our websites and help us improve them. Cookies may be placed on your computer and/or mobile device by both us and by third parties with whom we have a relationship, such as web analytics services. You may refuse cookies by activating the setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting, you may not have the same user experience. Among other cookies, we use Google Analytics.

Web Beacons
On certain web pages or in emails we send you, we may utilize a technology called a "web beacon." Web beacons help determine which email messages sent by us were opened and whether a message was acted upon. Web beacons also help analyze the effectiveness of websites by measuring the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site.

Social Media Plugins
Carlton Fields uses social sharing widgets on our websites that enable interaction with social networks. Through these platforms and features, we may receive some personal information about you, and this Policy applies to that information as well. In addition, third party social networking platforms and blogging platforms have their own privacy policies which explain how the third parties that provide them will use and protect your information, and we encourage you to read them.

Do Not Track Signals
We currently do not change our tracking processes in response to Do Not Track settings in your web browser. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed above (e.g., by disabling cookies).

Sharing and Disclosing Information

There may be times when we are required by law to collect information about you. Carlton Fields does not sell (as the term is commonly understood), rent, lease, share, or otherwise disclose the information we collect through our Sites and Communications, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf, such as monitoring and maintaining the website, preparing electronic alerts or mailings, or hosting webinars; to comply with applicable laws or legal processes (e.g., subpoenas); or to otherwise protect the rights or property of Carlton Fields.
 

How We Protect Your Information

Although Carlton Fields cannot guarantee that the information you provide to us will be 100% secure, the security and confidentiality of your information is important to us. We limit our employees' access to your personal information, and we restrict any use or disclosure of personal information to authorized individuals, processes, or transactions.

Carlton Fields also uses a variety of security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, when your information is transmitted over the internet, including the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption.
 

Links to Other Sites

Our Sites and Communications contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. We recommend that you read the privacy policies of those sites as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
 

Policy Regarding Children Under 13

Carlton Fields and its Sites and Communications are not directed at children under the age of 13. Carlton Fields does not knowingly collect personal information from any child under the age of 13 without parental consent. If we become aware that such data has been collected, we will delete it.
