Replying to a PLF marketing email or sending a communication to us does not create an attorney-client relationship with PLF.

Cookie Policy - Personal Information We Collect By Automated Means

We collect certain information by automated means when you visit our Website, such as how many users visit our Website and other related analytics. We collect this information to learn how to improve our Website and how to best tailor it to our visitors. When you visit our Website, we may automatically collect some information about your visit using cookies, log analytics software, and other aggregate tracking technologies. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before. If you wish, you may decline cookies or set your browser to refuse cookies. Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies.

The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their latest releases. As this standard has not been finalized, PLF’s Website is not compatible with DNT and does not recognize DNT settings.

You have choices about certain information we collect. When you are asked to provide information, you may decline to do so; but if you choose not to provide information that is necessary for us to collect by law or to perform a contract, we may not be able to enter into or perform such contract, or perform other obligations with respect to you.
