Set forth here are the provisions that Skarlatos & Zonarich LLP (S&Z) requires you to agree to in using this Website and in communicating with us through this Website. Please review these terms carefully and do not use the Website if you do not agree with them. Your use of this Website will be deemed to be your consent to these terms and your agreement to abide by them.
The S&Z Website provides general information about the firm. Although this information may be considered advertising under the Rules of some Courts, the S&Z site is not intended to advertise our legal services, to solicit clients, or to provide legal advice. Prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes.
The information available on this Website is for general purposes only and is not intended to constitute any specific legal advice or to serve as a substitute for advice from a qualified attorney who has given specific attention to the circumstances for which you may be seeking assistance. Our legal updates, lawyer publications, and other information posted on this site have been abridged from laws, court decisions, and administrative rulings. They should not be considered as legal opinions or as a substitute for legal counsel.
By posting articles and information on this Website or providing links to other websites, we do not guarantee that this information is completely accurate or current or that it will provide or allow you to obtain the answers or resolutions to any legal issue that you may have. Further, our Website may not always be operational or free of functional defects. We disclaim any liability in connection with any actions taken or not taken based on any of our Website’s content.
Neither our presentation of the information on this site, nor your receipt of the information, creates a lawyer-client relationship or imposes any obligation on S&Z. It is only after we have agreed to represent you and been formally retained by you to perform legal services that an attorney-client relationship exists. Unless that relationship has been formed, any communications that take place over this Website are not protected from disclosure under the attorney-client privilege.
Any electronic communication sent to S&Z may not be secure and thus may be disclosed. Accordingly, we request that you do not send sensitive or confidential information electronically. In addition, the sending of electronic mail to any lawyer or other contact/address identified in the site does not create a lawyer-client relationship and the contents of any such mail are not privileged, unless the sender is a current client of S&Z and the communication is sent pursuant to that relationship.
Photographs that accompany lawyer biographies in the “People” section of the site are those of S&Z lawyers. No other photographs or images of persons located on the site depict S&Z lawyers or staff and are not to be construed as depicting such. All non-S&Z persons featured on Website photographs and images are models and are used for illustrative purposes only. You may download, print and copy material on this Website for your personal use as long as you do not alter any of the materials and that you ensure that each copy clearly acknowledges S&Z as the source.
While we may provide you with links to other websites or information about other websites that are maintained by outside organizations, these are third party websites that are governed by their own policies and are under the control of parties that have no affiliation with S&Z. We do not make any warranties or guarantees with respect to these websites, their accessibility, or the manner in which any information you provide to them will be treated.
Any use of this Website for purposes such as obtaining unauthorized access to computer systems or data, or engaging in acts of sabotage or malicious destruction of data or destruction of computer systems is strictly prohibited and we reserve the right to immediately suspend or revoke any communications that you may be engaged in on this Website if we believe such activity is taking place or you are attempting to engage in such activity.
This Website collects personally identifiable information like names and addresses only from visitors who voluntarily input such information in response to prompts we have placed at various points on our Website. S&Z also will collect email addresses from the emails you send us. S&Z’s computers may automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, like the type of browser you are using or the domain name of your internet service provider. They also may collect aggregate information on the site pages our users visit.
S&Z will use the personally identifiable information we collect online only to send you information about firm events or publications. We do, however, provide you the opportunity to decline placement on our mailing list. The data we hold is kept securely and only accessed by authorized personnel.
To the extent permitted by law, S&Z will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose any of the information it collects online without your permission. Exceptions are disclosures to third parties who monitor the Website and to parties who assist or cooperate in preparing for our mailings.
