Minerley Fein, P.A., knows that the privacy of the personal information that we receive about you is important to you. We understand that you trust us to protect the confidentiality and security of that information. The information that we collect about you is used only to provide the legal and related services that you request from us. Although there is a new federal law designed to protect the privacy of nonpublic personal information about consumers, as attorneys, we have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are much more stringent than those required by this new law.
Information We May Collect About You
We collect nonpublic personal information about you only in connection with providing you with the services that you request. The types of nonpublic personal information that we collect vary according to the services that we perform for you, and may include:
- Information that we receive from you, such as your name, address, email, income, assets, social security information, and other financial or household information;
- Information about your relationship and past history with us and others, such as the types of legal services we provide to you, your invoice balances and payment history; and
- Information that we receive, with your authorization, from third parties such as accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, banking institutions and others.
How We Handle Your Information
We do not disclose any public or nonpublic personal information about you that you have provided to us to anyone outside of our firm, except as authorized by you or required by law. For example, with your consent, we may disclose personal information to a third-party contractor, such as an appraiser or accountant, who is assisting us in providing services to you. We may also disclose information by filing documents with courts, agencies or taxing authorities in conjunction with a matter in which we are representing you. In addition, we will release information to the extent required by law or regulation. We do not sell client information to anyone or disclose client information to marketing companies.
How We Protect Your Information
We restrict access to public and nonpublic personal information about you that you have provided to us to those attorneys and staff members in our firm who need to know the information to provide services to you. All of our attorneys and employees are required to maintain the confidentiality of all nonpublic personal information about you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with both federal law and our more stringent professional standards to protect the public and nonpublic personal information that you have provided to us.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
