This website and any blogs connected with this firm (collectively, the “Sites”) are provided by the law firm of Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP (“CPDB” or “we”, “us” or “our”).  This notice sets forth our privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) and describes how we handle personal information we collect when you visit the Sites and how we use, share and protect that information.  Your use of the Sites indicates your agreement with the terms and conditions presented in this notice.



“Personal Information” as used in this Privacy Policy means anonymous information we collect automatically, information we collect through the use of “cookies,” and information you provide to us directly.

Anonymous Information

We collect your party’s domain and IP address automatically when you visit the Sites, as well as the type of web browser and operating system you use to access the Sites.  This information does not identify you as an individual, but only identifies the computer that is used to access the Sites.  This information is used for internal analysis only.  This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information of any user.


Cookies are small, removable data files that are stored on your computer by your Web browser.  When you visit our Sites, we may send one or more cookies to uniquely identify your browser, which allows us to enhance and personalize your online experience on the Website.   Cookies, by themselves, do not provide us with any personally-identifying information.  Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change the preferences of your browser so that it does not accept them.  These parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of all such information.

Information You Provide to Us

You may choose to provide personal information directly to us, if, for example, you request information from us or sign up to receive alerts or other communications from us.  In such cases, you may provide us with your name, e-mail address, street address, mailing address if different, town or city, state, zip code, telephone number, or other information that would allow someone to identify you or contact you.

You can browse our Website without being required to divulge any Personal Information to us.  Although we collect and maintain aggregate anonymous information about usage and visitors browsing our Website, no Personal Information is collected as part of this process.

Our Sites are directed to adults.  If you are under the age of thirteen, please do not use our Sites or provide us with any personal information.



We use the Personal Information that we collect and that you provide to us to provide you with the Sites; to improve the Sites in response to how users use them; to provide you with information and promotional materials about Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP; and for any other purpose disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or upon your consent.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so as required by law or to comply with legal process.

We may from time to time retain qualified third-party vendors to help us manage the Website and allow us to better serve our Sites visitors.  These may include third-party vendors we engage to analyze the information we collect on the Sites for various purposes.  These parties may collect or receive certain information about your use of the Sites through the use of cookies and similar technologies.  We require all such third parties to maintain the security of all information to which they are provided access, and restrict the vendors from using the information in any way not authorized by us.

We do not share, sell, rent or lease any Personal Information that you provide with any unaffiliated third parties, other than as provided above.



The Sites may include links to other sites operated by third parties.  CPDB is not responsible for any information on these sites.  Your use of these sites or submission of personal information to them is at your own risk and pursuant to the privacy policies of such sites.



We are committed to protecting the Personal Information you share with us through use of our Sites and we maintain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information.  We limit access to Personal Information by our own employees to individuals who are authorized for the proper handling of such information.  If, for any reason, you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use or attempt to take advantage of any of the information, services, features or functions of the Sites that might require you to provide your Personal Information.



We may revise this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time without advance notice, by posting an updated and revised version of this Privacy Policy on the Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP Website.  We will provide you with notice of any material revisions.   The revisions are effective immediately upon posting and we encourage you to check this Privacy Policy often so you are aware of the most current terms and conditions that apply to you.  Your use of the Sites after such notice is provided indicates your consent to the revised terms.
