What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It

Taghavi Immigration Law collects the types of data that websites routinely collect to interact with its visitors via online forms, comment forms, and technical processes such as cookies, analytics, and interactions with software provided by third-party websites.

However, as a law firm, we also collect client and case-specific information for site visitors who seek to engage the firm’s services. This information includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, IP address, physical address, documents you upload or provide to the firm, and other information relevant to pursuing your legal matter.

Contact & Email Forms

Our site uses a variety of contact and other forms to allow visitors to interact with our site. If you provide information to us via our online forms, that information, such as your name, email address, message, and other information you provide via the form, including technical information required to process your interaction, such as your IP address, is collected and retained indefinitely.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser. When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed. If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use the following services to collect site visitor information, in the aggregate, and make adjustments to our website performance in order to improve website interactions, provide meaningful content, and provide superior legal services. We also use analytics services to remarket and retarget website visitors.

Google Analytics: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html

You may opt out of Google Analytics tracking by way of the following tool provided by Google: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/181881?hl=en

Who We Share Your Data With

We do not share information with third parties unless it is required by law. Phone numbers collected for SMS consent will not be disclosed.

How We Protect Your Data

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. Client information, for site visitors and users who retain the firm for legal services, is retained indefinitely. Clients may also request, in writing, that information relating to their case be removed from our records, both digital and physical.

You can also request, in writing, that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Use of Site in Furtherance of Providing Legal Services

Our use of our websites is unique in that we interact with, store, collect, and process information provided by clients via our online presence. We collect and use client information in this manner to provide a superior legal service experience. As a result, in specific interactions where it is indicated that an attorney-client relationship is formed, clients may provide additional private information that goes beyond a normal site visitor interaction to merely process technical, marketing, or communication information. We refer to this extra information as “Client Information.” Client Information is protected by attorney-client confidentiality.

Industry Regulatory Disclosure Requirements

As a law firm, there are no special disclosure requirements. However, we note that lawyers and law firms are governed by the Rules of Professional Responsibility, and we believe that our website interactions with you, and the personal information we collect, help us provide legal services in accordance with the applicable rules. In the context of attorney-client confidentiality, we comply with the Rules of Professional Responsibility in terms of protecting client information obtained via website interactions.
