Privacy Policy

As dedicated trial attorneys committed to standing up for the rights of the injured in and out of the courtroom, Cooper Sevillano believes strongly in your right to privacy.  In an effort to explain why your information is gathered and what we do at Cooper Sevillano to protect it as best we can, we have created the following Privacy Policy that applies to information we receive about you.

POLICY PURPOSE

There is no denying the prominence of digital communications in most every aspect of our lives.  The present threat of a cyberattack or breach in our security systems is at an all-time high in this country.  Given the inevitable trend towards greater use of digital channels by clients, Cooper Sevillano has made it a priority to take appropriate precautions to safeguard the unauthorized disclosure or misuse of personal and confidential information we receive through our website or other online portals.  Please note that notwithstanding our best efforts and our track-record of success, there is no guarantee that we will be successful all of the time.

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Our website (www.coopersevillano.com), like most websites on the internet, gathers certain information automatically.  This information includes, but is not limited to, the user’s IP address, browser type and settings, Internet Service Provider (ISP), operating system, date/time stamps and server log data.  While we do not actively seek any of this information, we do utilize the information that is gathered to help us improve the legal services we offer as well as the content and usability of our website.

Our website also collects information voluntarily from visitors and potential clients.  For example, we have a “Schedule My Consultation” or “Contact” form which we ask for information such as your name, email address, phone number, address and a brief description of your legal issue.  If you choose to contact us through the website or by email through an email address provided on our website, we will collect your information and store it so we can tailor an appropriate response to you.

There are also occasions when Cooper Sevillano receives information about you from third party sources.  For example, if we are representing you for a car accident, we may receive information from your employer about your work status and lost wages.  We will also likely receive information about you from your medical providers.  As it relates to medical record requests and retention, we agree to abide by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) when using and disclosing your medical information absent a discovery rule or court order requiring us to do so.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The primary purpose of the information we collect is to help us improve the quality of the services we provide and the accuracy of the information we create.  In other words, we want to make sure that our online profile accurately represents the types of legal services we offer and that we are appropriately responding to clients who are truly in need of our help.  If you contact us through the website or through an email address on the website, we may include you on our newsletters and other marketing efforts unless you choose to opt out.

HOW WE SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Other than providing your personal information for legitimate legal purposes such as responding to lawful requests, complying with court orders, enforcing your rights and preventing fraud, we agree not to share your personal information in any other way with anyone without your consent.

WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION AFTER WE COLLECT IT

We will retain your information for as long as necessary to accomplish our purposes for such data as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you hire us, however, we will abide by different rules related to the retention of your file.  If we do not end up representing you and you want us to delete your information, you can request that we do so by contacting us at the address below.  If asked to do so, we agree to utilize all reasonable data destruction practices available to us at the time. We may, however, retain certain information to comply with legal or contract obligations or to facilitate law enforcement requests.
