Jurisdiction

Dolan Law is based in Chicago, Illinois, and does not conduct or solicit business outside of the United States of America.  The Site is controlled and operated from the United States, and is not intended to subject us to the jurisdiction or laws of any country or sovereign entity other than the United States.  The Site may not be appropriate or available for use in some jurisdictions outside of the United States, depending on your local laws and regulations. If you access the Site, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules, and regulations. We may limit the Site’s availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion. You agree that your use of the Site, and any dispute relating to the Site, is governed exclusively by Illinois law, without regard to choice of law and conflict of law principles.

Description of the Services

We may provide users of the Site with access to general information and services about us, including without limitation, information such as newsletters, legal updates, articles, attorney profiles, event details, videos, photos, text, data, and other similar content, as well as services such as event registration, subscription management, research tools, videos, links to third-party websites, and online forms that you can fill out to receive information or be contacted by us (such information and services, collectively, the “Services”). Neither your receipt of information presented on this Site nor any email or other electronic communication sent through this Site will create an attorney-client relationship, and any such email or communication will not be treated as confidential by us. No user of this Site should act or refrain from acting on the basis of information included on this Site without seeking legal advice of counsel in the relevant jurisdiction. We expressly disclaim all liability in respect of actions taken or not taken based on any contents of this Site. Do not send confidential information through this site. Any communication with us through this Site will not be considered or treated as privileged or confidential.

The information contained in this Site is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice or an opinion of counsel. You should not act on any of the information contained in this Site without first consulting legal counsel. Past results on this site afford no guarantee of future results. Every case must be judged on its own merits.

The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. This Site is not intended to be advertising, and we do not desire to represent anyone desiring representation based upon viewing this Site in any jurisdiction where this Site fails to comply with all laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction.

The Supreme Court of Illinois does not recognize certifications of specialties in the practice of law, nor does it recognize certifications of expertise in any phase of the practice of law by any agency, governmental or private, or by any group, organization or association. A certificate, award or recognition of a specialty is not a requirement to practice law in Illinois. Unless clearly stated otherwise, none of the attorneys at Dolan Law have obtained specialist or expert certificates, awards or recognitions from any state bar associations, state supreme courts, or other similar authorities. Use in this Site of the descriptive words “specialize,” “expertise,” and words similar thereto with regard to a particular area of law, should not and do not indicate that certification as a “specialist” or designation as an “expert” has been obtained, rather such descriptive words indicate significant experience in such area of law.

Information You Submit

You may voluntarily submit a variety of comments, information, images, files, links and other materials using the Site (“User Submissions”), and you grant us and our assigns a non-exclusive, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any of your User Submissions that you post on or in connection with the Site (“User Submission License”). We may use your User Submissions without any obligation to compensate you for them, including for commercial purposes. We reserve the right to, in our sole discretion, refuse to accept, post, display, or transmit any User Submission. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power, and authority necessary to post your User Submissions. You agree that we have no responsibility or liability for the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any User Submissions or anything else on the Site. You agree that you will use the Site in compliance with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations.

You agree that all information you provide to us is true, accurate, and complete, and you will maintain and update such information regularly. Except as otherwise described in the Site’s posted Privacy Policy, you agree that your User Submissions will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary by us – regardless of whether you mark them “confidential,” “proprietary,” or the like – and will not be returned, and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Dolan Law assumes no obligation of any kind to you or any third party with respect to your User Submissions. If you choose to make any of your personally identifiable or other information publicly available on the Site, you do so at your own risk.

You further agree that you will not use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application or other manual or automatic device to retrieve, index, “scrape,” “data mine,” or in any way gather Site content or reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Site without our express prior written consent.

Other Information We May Collect

“Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual, such as:

browser and device information;

usage data;

Internet Protocol (IP) addresses;

information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies;

demographic information and other information provided by you;

aggregated or anonymized information.

How We May Collect Other Information

We and our third party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

  • Through your browser or device: Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version and the name and version of the Services you are using. We use this information to ensure that the Services function properly.
  • Using cookies: Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the computer that you are using. We may use cookies in connection with the Services. There are two main types of cookies: (i) Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser. Session cookies allow the Services to recognize your computer as you navigate between pages during a single browser session, allowing you to use the Services most efficiently, and (ii) Persistent cookies: these are stored on your computer between browsing sessions until they expire or are deleted. They allow the Services to remember your preferences and tailor services to you. We may use both session and persistent cookies in connection with the Services. These cookies are used for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display information more effectively, and to personalize your experience while visiting the Services, as well as for online tracking purposes. Cookies permit us to recognize your computer to assist your use of the Services. We may also use cookies to gather statistical information about the usage of the Services in order to continually improve the design and functionality, to understand how users use the Services and to assist us with resolving questions regarding the Services. In addition to cookies which send information to us, we may also use cookies which collect information and send it to our service providers. Please check the relevant service provider’s website for more information about their use of cookies. Further, where the Services allow you to access other websites from the Services using the links provided, the operators of those websites may use cookies in accordance with their own cookies policy, which may differ from ours.
  • Using pixel tags and other similar technologies: Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) may be used in connection with some Services to, among other things, track the actions of users of the Services (including email recipients), measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Services and response rates.
  • IP Address: Your “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites and applications. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels of the Services, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Services.
  • From you: Information such as your location, as well as other information, such as your preferred means of communication, is collected when you voluntarily provide this information. Unless combined with Personal Information, this information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Services.
  • By aggregating information: Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Services, (for example, we may aggregate Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code).

How We May Use and Disclose Other Information

Please note that we may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may use it as described in “How We May Collect Other Information” section above, as well as for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information. In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographical location). If we combine any Other Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it is combined.

Third Party Services

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site or service to which the Services link. The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.

Please note that we are not responsible for the collection, usage and disclosure policies and practices (including the data security practices) of other organizations, such as any app, social media platform, or wireless service provider, including any Personal Information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with the Services.

Security

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us via email mdolan[at]dolanlegal.com (replace “[at]” with “@”).
