This Privacy Policy Statement applies to the Bottaro Law website and governs data collection and usage. By using the Bottaro Law website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of Your Personal Information

Bottaro Law collects personally identifiable information—such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, and / or your telephone number. We also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.

We also receive information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Bottaro Law for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Bottaro Law does not read any of your private online communications.

Bottaro Law encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from https://www.bottarolaw.com/ so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information.

Bottaro Law does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties. We may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, we may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Bottaro Law, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Bottaro Law does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within our websites to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and the individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. Learn more about CalOPPA at the Consumer Federation of California’s website.

In compliance with CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • We will create a privacy policy add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our privacy policy link includes the word “privacy,” and can easily be found on the page specified above.
  • Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy page.
  • Users are able to change their personal information by calling us.

How does our site handle “do not track” signals?

We honor “do not track” signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

Any website, blog, or app provided by Bottaro Law may allow third party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act)

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online by regulating the collection of personal information from children under age 13. This website does not specifically market to children under age 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practice Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States. In order to be in line with Fair Information Practice Principles, we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

  • We will notify affected users via email within 7 business days.
  • We will notify affected users via phone call within 7 business days.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

Bottaro Law will occasionally update this Privacy Policy Statement to reflect company and customer feedback. We encourage you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how we are protecting your information.
