We recognize that you may be concerned about the use and disclosure of your personal information. Your privacy is very important to us. The following will inform you of the information that we, The Baer Law Firm, may collect from you, and how it is used. By using our website, https://thebaerfirm.com/, you are accepting the practices described in this policy.
We may collect non-personal information, such as a domain name and IP Address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We may also collect information about the type of internet browser you are using, your operating system, what brought you to our website, as well as which of our web pages you have accessed.
Additionally, if you communicate with us regarding our website or our services, we will collect any information that you provide to us such as your email address or telephone number.
We use the collected information primarily for our own internal purposes such as providing, maintaining, evaluating, and improving our services and website, fulfilling requests for information, and providing customer support.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
If we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve the visitor’s access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
As stated above, we may share your name, email, and telephone number with a lawyer whom we believe may be better suited than us to help with your specific legal problem. We will not sell or otherwise provide the information we collect to outside third parties for the purpose of mass email marketing.
We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company
- Protect and defend the rights or property of our website and related properties
- Identify persons who may be violating the law, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing our website or its related properties
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through email, discussion boards, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.

Our site may request information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information.
