Because it is not possible to anticipate every conceivable context in which such information might be provided to us via e-mail, LS can provide you no assurance that personally identifiable information you choose to provide to us via e-mail will be maintained as private.

LS and/or the host of its Website use “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that are placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive that allow LS and/or the host of its Website to record how many times a user or computers within a user’s network of computers has visited the Website and the number of times various pages of the Website have been accessed. You may disable receipt of cookies using features of your Web browser that disable or turn off cookies. LS does not use cookies to retrieve information that is unrelated to your visit to or your interaction with the Website.

LS collects your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. The IP address data that we collect does not contain any personally identifiable information about you and is used to administer our site, to determine the numbers of different visitors to the site and to gather broad demographic data.

The non-personally identifiable data that LS collects in these ways is accessible by certain LS personnel as well as certain third-party Website designers and personnel involved with the third-party service that hosts the Website. LS uses all non-personally identifiable data that it collects internally and together with its Website designer and host in order to improve the Website. The information is used, for example, to evaluate what portions of the Website are more popular than others, to determine from where visitors came to the site, and to determine how many times particular pages of the site were accessed in aggregate. LS personnel may use the data to prepare reports regarding Website activity as part of the process of maintaining and improving the site. Cookies also are used to identify prior users to the Website in order to provide certain homepage customization preferences and create a more personal viewing experience for the user.

What steps does LS take to protect your privacy?

To the extent permitted by law, LS will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose any of the information it collects online without your permission.

In addition, LS does not presently collect personally identifiable information via the public area of its Website except to the extent that such information is provided from visitors who voluntarily submit a feedback/inquiry form, send electronic mail to LS or any of its lawyers, register for events, subscribe to newsletters or submit resumes through the site. Personal information collected through this Website is saved in LS’s contact database where it may be combined with pre-existing contact information in the database. LS and the host of its Website take reasonable security precautions to maintain the privacy of the data that is collected, such as ensuring that it is accessible only to appropriate personnel and that the information is user ID- and password-protected.

What are the privacy policies of third-party sites to which LS’s Website links?

LS provides links to third party Websites that it does not control. Therefore, LS urges you to review the privacy policies posted on these third party Websites at the time you first visit such sites.
