I. First Things First.

If you’re visiting our website, you likely care about privacy and already know that the Internet, generally speaking, is not always a private place.  When you visit websites, use search engines, or conduct business on the Internet, many different parties gather information about your online behavior by tracking your searches, visits, and transactions, and then by matching that data with other information about you.

With that in mind, our goal is to respect your privacy, including when you visit our site.  So, for starters, we collect limited information about you when you visit  We do this in order to contact you and to provide you with a better experience while you use our site.  How and when we do so is explained below.

If you live in California, Section VI below provides you with additional important information about your rights.

II. Our Collection and Use of Information About You.

Passively Collected Information

Like most websites, we automatically receive and record information in our server logged from your browser when you visit  The information that we collect with these automated methods include your Internet Protocol address, cookie information, browser type, system type, and referring URL.  If you click one of our advertisements on another website, we may receive similar information from the advertising platform.  If you sign up for our email newsletter, we may also use an embedded image to track whether you open our email. 

We use this type of information to measure and improve the performance of our site and our newsletters. On occasion we may also access this type of information to investigate or maintain the stability and security of our site.

Voluntarily Submitted Information

Certain pages on our site and/or our advertisements on other websites (like Facebook) invite you to share personally identifying information in order for us to contact you, such as your name, mailing address, email address, or telephone number.  If you click one of our advertisements on another website or interact with us on social media platforms, we may also receive your account name.

How We Work with Third-Party Vendors

We work with a limited group of vendors who help us process data, facilitate the operation of, and deliver messages to you on other platforms.  For example, outside vendors (like WordPress or Google) may help us analyze traffic on our site or send out periodic email updates (like DocuSign or Salesforce Marketing Cloud).

Our Use of Cookies

We use cookies to collect analytic data, improve website performance, and for marketing and advertising.  By “cookies” we mean small text files placed onto your computer by websites you visit.  “Cookies” may also refer to local storage, which is a mechanism similar to cookies where the information is stored within your web browser.  In some instances, we place these cookies ourselves.  In other instances, we allow outside service providers to place these cookies, but only if those providers agree to the terms described above under “How We Work with Third-Party Vendors.” We use cookies as follows:


We use analytics tools that place cookies, in order to give us a better understanding of how people engage with our website. That in turn allows us to gauge the current performance of website features, and to develop better content. Analytics cookies provide us with information like:

  • How many individual visitors we have;
  • How many visitors are new or returning;
  • How often visitors come to the website;
  • What content they’ve visited; and
  • How visitors interact with particular pages or content.

Website Performance

Website performance cookies allow us to make the website easier and more pleasant to use, including saving you time when filling out a form by populating it with information you provided in previous visits.

Marketing and Advertising

We also use marketing and advertising tools that place cookies in order to help us better market and advertise our services.   

III. How Certain Third Parties May Place Cookies and Gather Information About You.

Our site is connected in a variety of ways to content residing on other platforms.  We provide links to content on social media platforms such as Facebook and X, and to content on other sites, such as articles posted on the sites of news organizations.  Our site may also feature embedded media, such as videos, that are hosted on other platforms (such as YouTube) but viewable directly through the buttons we provide.  When you interact with or load a web page that contains any of these types of external content, the providers of that content may place their own cookies on your computer, access existing cookies that were set when you previously visited other websites, or otherwise gather information about you as you access their content.

To learn about how those content hosts treat the data they collect through cookies and otherwise, see their respective online privacy policies and other posted guidance.  We do not vouch for those privacy policies either.  You should read them and make your own decisions about them.

IV. Security Measures and Data Transmission.

We use reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to any information you may provide us.  However, no website can fully eliminate security risks.  Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.

V. Procedure When We Update This Policy.

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time.  We will post Privacy Policy changes on this page, and if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice on our website.  We will also keep prior versions of the Privacy Policy available for your review in this section.

VI. Your California Privacy Rights.

A business subject to California Civil Code section 1798.83 is required to disclose to its California customers, upon request, the identity of any third parties to whom the business has disclosed personal information within the previous calendar year, along with the type of personal information disclosed, for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.  We will not disclose any personal information about you to any third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California consumers have the following rights:

  • Right to know: You can request that a business disclose to you: (1) the categories and/or specific pieces of personal information they have collected about you, (2) the categories of sources for that personal information, (3) the purposes for which the business uses that information, (4) the categories of third parties with whom the business discloses the information, and (5) the categories of information that the business sells or discloses to third parties.  You can make a request to know up to twice a year, free of charge.
  • Right to delete: You can request that businesses delete personal information they collected from you and tell their service providers to do the same, subject to certain exceptions (such as if the business is legally required to keep the information).
  • Right to correct: You may ask businesses to correct inaccurate information that they have about you.
  • Right to non-discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by the business for the exercise of privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.  This right includes an employee’s, applicant’s, or independent contractor’s right not to be retaliated against for the exercise of their CCPA rights.

We may collect personal information from you on the site and use it for specified purposes.  For a list of categories of such information collected on the site and the purposes for which we use it, see Section II above.  We do not “share” or “sell” personal information as defined by the California Privacy Rights Act.  We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information on the Site, and you should not provide us with such information via the Site.

If you become an Edelson PC client or if we communicate with you as a prospective client, we may collect information from you relating to your representation or potential representation—including sensitive personal information—which will be kept confidential as required by California Business and Professions Code section 6068, subdivision (e) and/or California Rule of Professional Conduct 1.18 and which we will use only for the purpose of providing you with legal services unless you direct otherwise or unless otherwise required by law.

We also collect and disclose personal information and sensitive personal information about consumers in the course of our representation of our clients.  However, pursuant to our ethical obligations under California Business and Professions Code section 6068, subdivision (e), California Rule of Professional Conduct 1.18, Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct 1.6 and 1.18,  Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct 1.6 and 1.18, and District of Columbia Rules of Professional Conduct 1.6 and 1.18, we are unable to identify the categories of information that we have collected about consumers in the preceding 12 months, the categories of sources from which they were collected, or the nature of the disclosures. 

In the course of representing clients, we may use or disclose sensitive personal information about consumers for purposes other than those specified in California Code of Regulations title 11, section 7027, subsection (m), but only insofar as it is needed to comply with legal obligations as permitted by California Civil Code section 1798.145, subsection (a)(1), or to exercise or defend our or our clients’ legal claims as permitted by California Civil Code section 1798.145, subsection (a)(1)(E).  We are not able to provide a right to limit under California Code of Regulations title 11, section 7014, for these uses without restricting our ability to comply with our legal and ethical obligations as attorneys (i.e., to be fully candid with tribunals and other parties regarding the facts of a particular case, or to offer only genuine and authentic documents into evidence at a trial).  Other than as permitted by California Civil Code section 1798.145, we do not use or disclose any consumer’s sensitive personal information for purposes other than those specified in California Code of Regulations title 11, section 7027, subsection (m).
