Privacy Policy

Welcome to Mitton Law! We’re so glad that you’ve taken the time to read our Privacy Policy.

We believe that a contract should answer fundamental questions about the relationship between the parties to the contract. So, we’ve set up our Privacy Policy in a question and answer format. We hope that it makes it easier to read and understand.

Please read the Privacy Policy from start to finish. Click on the question to reveal the answer.

 Let’s start by establishing the definitions of some important words that will be used throughout the Privacy Policy. 

  • Privacy Policy refers to the agreement on this webpage.

  • We, us, ourMitton Law, or the firm all refer to Mitton Law Firm, PLLC.

  • Managing Attorney refers to Faith Mitton, who provides all of the legal services offered by thefFirm.

  • You or your refers to any person who reads or accepts the Privacy Policy, whether acting in their personal capacity or on behalf of a business.

  • Client refers to any person or legal entity with whom we have formed an attorney-client relationship.

  • Website refers to www.mittonlaw.com, including any subdomains ending in mittonlaw.com that we may use from time to time.

All other important words are defined in the answer to the relevant question. You’ll know it’s a word with a special meaning because it will be in bold and italicized font like this the first time it’s used. 

The Privacy Policy is a legally binding agreement between you and us concerning our privacy practices. A legally binding agreement is one that can be enforced in a court of law. 

We reserve the right to update or modify the Privacy Policy at any time. If you are a client of the firm, we will notify by email of any changes to the Privacy Policy. We will also post a “Last Updated” date on the Privacy Policy so that you can identify when it was most recently changed.

We collect two types of information: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.

  • Personal information refers to data that can be used to identify or contact you. This includes your name, email address, postal address, credit card information, telephone number, information about your legal issues, and Internet Protocol (IP) address.

  • Non-personal information refers to data that is anonymized and cannot be used to identify you. This includes the type of information collected by cookies and similar technology. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Your web browser is usually set up to initially accept cookies, but you can change this feature in your browser settings. 

We only collect the personal information that you submit to us voluntarily  when you contact us such as by sending us an email, using a contact form on our Website, using our website chat widget, booking a consultation with the Managing Attorney online, registering for our online client portal, or otherwise interacting with our website.

We may collect non-personal information automatically through cookies and similar technology.

We use your personal information to respond to communications that you send to us, to provide you with legal services, to process orders for the products you sign up for, and to send tou important updates about our policies. Please note that if you are or were a client of the firm, you may not opt out of service-related communications, including confirmations and reminders, notices about changes to our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy, or updates about other technical and security notices.

We may also use your personal information to:

  • customize, analyze, adjust, and improve our website to better meet your needs;

  • enforce our agreements with you;

  • prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities; and

  • comply with court orders, subpoenas, warrants, or other requests as required by law.

In addition, we may use your personal information to contact you about services we provide which we think you may be interested in. You can unsubscribe from these marketing messages at any time. 

Non-personal information: We may use cookies and similar technology to personalize or improve the site, keep track of where visitors to our website are located, and other similar uses.

The firm uses commercially reasonable methods to secure information that we transmit through the Internet or store in the cloud. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) server software to prevent unauthorized access to the information you submit through our website. When you submit information through our website, SSL encrypts all the information that you enter before it is sent to us and our third-party service providers. You can identify the secure connection by looking at the URL, which will begin with “https:” (instead of “http:”).

We aim to stay up-to-date with best practices in the legal industry concerning the protection of confidential client information transmitted through the Internet or stored in the cloud.

However, it is impossible to completely safeguard information transmitted through Internet connections or stored online. This is because networked technology is constantly developing, and hackers and other bad actors are quick to adapt to changes and persistent in finding ways to breach security protocols. There is a small chance that, even though we use commercially reasonable security measures and follow best practices for securing confidential information, client information could be breached. By agreeing to work with us, you accept this risk. 

You also accept your responsibility to take adequate measures to secure your information, such as by using strong passwords that you don’t share with others and by accessing the Internet through secure networks. We take no responsibility for a breach of your information which is a result of your failure to use adequate security measures when communicating with us. 

We rely on trusted third parties to create a seamless client experience in our virtual law practice. While we will never sell your personal information, we will disclose personal information to trusted third parties in order to provide our services to you. A listing of our technology vendors is available to clients upon request. We shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any third-party service provider in connection with the use of our website or services.

Links to third-party sites are provided only for your convenience and do not constitute our endorsement of the third-party site or its content. We do not guarantee the accuracy, usefulness, safety, legality, or compliance  of any third-party links and take no responsibility for the content found on the websites of third parties. If you notice any third-party links on our website that are not working, please contact us via the Contact page so that the links can be removed or updated.

If part or all of the firm is in the process of a potential transaction, bought, sold, or otherwise transferred, client information will likely be shared for evaluation purposes and included among the transferred business assets. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the firm or its assets may continue to use tour personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. However, the firm can only be acquired by another law firm, so the confidentiality and security obligations by which the Managing Attorney is restricted will also restrict any subsequent owner of the firm. 

We do not intend that any portion of our website will be accessed or used by children under the age of eighteen, and such use is prohibited. By using our website, you represent that you are at least eighteen years old and understand that you must be at least eighteen years old in order to send us personal information and receive services from ss. We will promptly delete the personal information of any user of our website when we obtain actual knowledge that such users are under the age of eighteen.

No. In the first instance, an important part of our relationship with you through the use of our website is our Terms of Service. Our Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service. We urge you to read our Terms of Service too because it is a binding, legal agreement about your use of our website and certain services you access through our website.

In addition, if the Firm accepts You as a Client, You will need to need to sign an agreement to formally engage the Firm’s legal services.

All of Our agreements with Clients are structured in a question and answer format, just like this Privacy Policy, so they are easy for You to understand.

The Privacy Policy is an electronic agreement. Consistent with New York State law, you agree (as does the firm) that this agreement can be signed electronically. You also agree that clicking the box in front of the sentence “I understand and accept the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy” or a similar statement is equivalent to your electronic signature.  

If you have complaints or other issues with the website, the Privacy Policy, or the firm’s services, you should use the dispute resolution method identified in the Terms of Service.

The Privacy Policy represent our entire agreement with you concerning 0ur privacy practices, superseding any prior agreements. 

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Privacy Policy is not a waiver of such right or provision. 

If any provision of this Privacy Policy  is held by a court of competent
jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, that particular provision
will be deemed modified so as to be lawful to the fullest extent
permitted by law. If the provision cannot be so modified, then that
particular provision, and not the rest of the Privacy Policy, will be
inoperative. The rest of the Privacy Policy will continue in force.
