When you complete a form on our site, we ask you to provide some personal information, for example, your name, address, phone number, email address and/or certain additional categories of information. In providing this personal information, you consent and agree to us sharing this information with third-party lawyers or law firms for advertising purposes and with third-party providers doing work on our behalf. You also consent to being contacted by telephone (including calls to your mobile telephone), email and/or text message with information related to your inquiry and/or information regarding our or third parties’ products and services.
We keep information you submit in a contact database for future reference, as needed. We may use certain information you provide to offer you products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. You may choose not to receive such offers and communications from us when you register. You may also opt out (unsubscribe) as described below.

If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.
