1. Information Collection and Use.
Stoel collects information on the site at two different stages. First, we collect anonymous, aggregate information (such as domain name or IP address) from all visitors to the site. This type of information is never linked to any personally identifiable information and is only used in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of our site.
Second, we require the submission of certain personally identifiable information when you use services available on the site. For example, we collect contact information when you sign up to receive one of our newsletters.
2. Personal Information of Children Under 13.
Stoel complies with the requirements of the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the FTC’s Rule interpreting COPPA (16 CFR § 512). This site is not directed to children and we do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age through this site.
3. Use of Your Personal Information.
Stoel does not sell, rent, or share site user information to or with any third party not affiliated with or owned by Stoel, except that we may disclose such information to service providers who may assist us in providing services to you or in such areas as data storage. Stoel will never give or sell your personal information to be used for the purposes of sending you unsolicited commercial offers (such as spam) from any third party.
4. Use of Aggregate Information.
We store information that we collect through log files to create a profile of our users. Log files record internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track a customer’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. A profile is stored information detailing how individual customers use the site. It is used solely for internal purposes, to help us improve the experience of our customers. We do not share your profile with any third parties.
5. Disclosure of Personal Information As Required By Law.
We will disclose site user personal information when required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us.
6. Business Transitions.
In the event Stoel goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, our customers’ personal information may be part of the assets transferred. Customers will be notified via prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If, as a result of the business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, you will be given a choice consistent with our Notification of Changes section.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Stoel is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by our site.
Stoel takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect your information. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of information submitted through the site.
We also make an effort to protect your information off-line. Access to users’ information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. The servers that store your personally identifiable information are housed in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our site, you can send a message to the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org
