How does Robinson+Cole gather my information?
We gather information in two ways. One way is when you send us your information directly, such as by making an email inquiry or submitting a registration form to receive our newsletters. The other way is by using technology to collect information regarding your use of the Site.
What information does Robinson+Cole collect?
We collect both personally identifiable information ("PII") and non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII"). PII refers to information that identifies you directly, such as your name, business affiliation, postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address. We collect PII only when you voluntarily provide it to us. Non-PII refers to information that does not identify you personally, which we use to track your Internet use. For instance, we may collect information about your computer's IP address, what type of web browser you use, and what pages of the Site you visit to understand how the Site is being used. See the "What are "cookies" and how does Robinson+Cole use them?" section below for more information.

How does Robinson+Cole use and disclose my information?
We do not disclose any of the information we receive from you to any third parties, other than our service partners who provide information security, and marketing and promotional services to us, or if we were to sell any or all of our business and/or our assets, or where we are legally or contractually required to disclose your information. Otherwise, we will use your information only for our own internal purposes and, where appropriate, to contact you directly. Access to your information is restricted to those of our employees who need to know your information in order to provide services to you.
By submitting a telephone number to Robinson+Cole, you agree that a representative of Robinson+Cole can contact you at the number you provide, potentially using automated technology (including texts/SMS messaging) or a pre-recorded message. Your consent is not an obligation to receive any of our services.
How does Robinson+Cole safeguard my information?
We have implemented appropriate safeguards to protect your information from improper access, use and disclosure. First, we use a secure operating environment to seamlessly protect any information you transmit to us. Once received, we then limit access of your information to only those employees with a legitimate business need. Finally, we take care to dispose of your information properly so that third parties will not be able to access it. This includes destroying, erasing, or making unreadable the information prior to disposal. While we are committed to protecting your privacy, please be aware that no transaction over the Internet can be completely secure, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
How can I stop receiving information from Robinson+Cole?
If at any time you do not wish us to contact you using the information we have collected, including sending you newsletters and notices about seminars, please send an email with your name, mailing address, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
