Gibbons is committed to honoring its visitors’ right to privacy. We follow the guidelines set forth below as part of our effort to protect the information that you provide us during a visit to our website.
This statement discloses the privacy guidelines for the entire Gibbons website. Gibbons only requests personal information on the Gibbons website in connection with subscribing to our newsletters and requesting additional information about our services.
We use the identifying information you provide only for these specific purposes. The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to provide the requested information to you.
Other websites that you access through our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The practices of those other websites linked to the Gibbons website are not covered by this policy. Please refer to the policy statements on those websites.
Attorneys, like other professionals who advise on personal financial matters, are now required by a new federal law, the Financial Modernization Act of 1999, also known as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Pub. Law 106-102 (1999), to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. Attorneys have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this new law. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy.
In the course of providing our clients with certain legal services, we receive significant non-public personal information from our clients. If you are a client of Gibbons P.C. (Gibbons), you should know that all information that we receive from you is held in confidence, and is not released to people outside the firm, except as agreed to by you, or as required under an applicable law or ethical code. Even though the provisions of the Financial Modernization Act would allow Gibbons to share our client’s non-public personal information with a Gibbons subsidiary or other ancillary business entity, the rules of professional conduct prohibit this type of information sharing.
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist our clients with their professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard our client’s nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
