Activity Logging. When you use the Wagstaff & Cartmell website, which may be hosted in part or its entirety by a third party, the Wagstaff & Cartmell website will collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of “cookies” or your “IP address”) about your activities. Wagstaff & Cartmell uses this activity information (the “Activity Information”) for internal purposes such as to administer the Wagstaff & Cartmell website, improve the Wagstaff & Cartmell website, and help Wagstaff & Cartmell understand how the Wagstaff & Cartmell website is being used including the demographics and “clickstreams” of its visitors. “Cookies” are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on the Wagstaff & Cartmell website. You are always free to decline cookies if your browser permits, but in that case, some portions of the Wagstaff & Cartmell website may not operate properly. An “IP address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet.
Personally Identifiable Information. The Wagstaff & Cartmell website is designed so that you may generally browse it without providing any Personally Identifiable Information (defined below). Certain areas of the Wagstaff & Cartmell website, however, may allow the voluntarily submission of Personally Identifiable Information. Wagstaff & Cartmell uses your Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes for which it was submitted by you to Wagstaff & Cartmell and for Wagstaff & Cartmell to send you publications and invitations that may be of interest to you. Except as otherwise set forth in this Policy, Wagstaff & Cartmell does not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties. “Personally Identifiable Information” means information that would allow someone to identify or contact you, such as your name, physical or electronic mail address, and telephone number; provided, however, that Personally Identifiable Information does not include aggregated information that, by itself, does not permit the identification of individual persons and does not include the Activity Information.
Removal of Personally Identifiable Information. Wagstaff & Cartmell will use reasonable efforts to remove your Personally Identifiable Information from our then current Wagstaff & Cartmell website at any time upon Your written request. Such removal of Personally Identifiable Information will not ensure the permanent removal of such Personally Identifiable Information from the Wagstaff & Cartmell website. For example, such Personally Identifiable Information may remain in Wagstaff & Cartmell ’s archival or backup copies of the Wagstaff & Cartmell website.
Additional Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information. Wagstaff & Cartmell may share Personally Identifiable Information with third parties, including affiliated firms and third parties performing services for or on behalf of Wagstaff & Cartmell. Such services may include communications, database, event management, hosting, mailing, and marketing services. Additionally, Wagstaff & Cartmell cannot fully ensure that your Personally Identifiable Information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, Wagstaff & Cartmell may be legally obligated to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may circumvent Wagstaff & Cartmell ’s security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or an error may occur in the administration of the Wagstaff & Cartmell website. In the unlikely event that Wagstaff & Cartmell needs to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, Wagstaff & Cartmell may, and you authorize Wagstaff & Cartmell to, disclose any information about You to government officials as permitted by applicable law.
Miscellaneous Privacy Terms. Wagstaff & Cartmell follows appropriate technical measures to protect against the risks of unauthorized access to, erroneous disclosure of, and unlawful interception of Personally Identifiable Information. Wagstaff & Cartmell, however, cannot fully eliminate such risks. From time to time, Wagstaff & Cartmell may modify this Policy. Such modifications will be effective on the date that Wagstaff & Cartmell posts the modified statement to the Wagstaff & Cartmell website
