Our physical, electronic, and managerial procedures help ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the information stored on our systems.

MINOR

The Law Firm respects the privacy of minors and is committed to ensuring that their personal information is treated with the utmost care and in accordance with applicable laws. We do not collect information via the medium of internet services from individuals whom we know to be minors.

However, there may be situations where the firm needs to collect personal information from minors in the context of one of the purposes mentioned in this privacy policy. In such cases, we will ensure that the collection of personal information from minors is carried out with appropriate consent from their parents or legal guardians, or as otherwise permitted under applicable laws.

If you are a minor, please do not provide any personal information to us without the consent of your parent or legal guardian. If we become aware that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a minor without proper consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete such information from our records.
