You can visit this Site without providing personal information. When you visit the Site, we may collect your computer’s or mobile device’s IP address and other non-identifying browsing information that you necessarily disclose by visiting the Site. This information is collected so that data, such as the web pages you request, can be sent to your computer or device, allowing you to browse the Site.

We also collect any information that you choose to provide to us through the Contact form on the Site. This may include personal identification information such as your name, email address, and telephone number, and any other personal information you choose to provide on the form. We use this information to contact you about Saadeh P.C.’s services in response to your request. We will store this information until you request that we delete it or until we determine that the information is no longer needed or accurate. By providing this information to us, you agree that we can contact you by the means you have indicated. It is of course completely optional for you to fill out the Contact form.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the processing activities described in this Policy are based on your consent to the extent you provide information on the Contact form, and our legitimate interest in promoting our services.

- We determine that disclosure is necessary to protect and defend our or others’ rights, property, or safety;

GDPR Data Protection Rights
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have certain data protection rights under the GDPR.
Right of access. If requested, we will confirm whether we are processing your personal information and, if requested, provide you with a copy of that personal information.
Right to correct. You have the right to update, modify, or correct your personal information that we hold. To protect your privacy and security, we will first verify your identity before granting you access or allowing you to make corrections.
Right to erase. You have the right to request deletion of your personal information that we hold.
Right to restrict or prohibit processing. You have the right to restrict us from processing information concerning you, or to object to all such processing.
Right of data portability. You have the right to receive a copy of your personal information in a structured, commonly-used machine-readable format, so that you can reuse it elsewhere. You have the right to ask us to transfer this information to a specific third party.
Right to withdraw consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time where we previously relied on your consent to process your personal information.
Right to make a complaint. You have the right to complain to a competent supervisory authority if you feel that we are not complying with our data protection obligations. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority in the EEA.
Please note that these rights may be limited where the information is exempt from disclosure due to applicable rules of professional conduct, the attorney-client privilege, or other applicable laws or privileges.
International Transfers of Data
If you reside outside the United States, any information you provide to us through the Site will be transferred out of your country and into the United States. If you do not want your information to enter the United States, do not provide it to us. By providing information to us through the Site, you expressly consent to the transfer of your information to the United States.
Commitment to Security
Saadeh P.C. is committed to ensuring the security of your information. We have put in place safeguards designed to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of, information collected through the Site. The Site is scanned on a regular basis for security holes, malware, and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit as safe as possible. As the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit through the Site and you transmit such information at your own risk.
We contract with AffiniPay, LLC (doing business as LawPay) (“LawPay”) to act on our behalf to accept credit card payments. For information on LawPay’s security practices, click here. We do not retain or store credit card information.
“Do Not Track” Signals under the California Online Protection Act (CalOPPA)
Because we do not track users over time or across third party websites in order to provide targeted advertising, the Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals. Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the “Preferences” or “Settings” page of your browser.
Links to Other Sites
The Site may contain links to third party websites, which are outside our control and are not covered by this Policy. You should review the privacy policies of any third-party websites you visit so that you understand if and how they collect and use your information.
Content on the Site is directed at individuals over the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect or maintain any information about any individual under the age of 16. If you are under the age of 16 years old, do not provide any information to us through the Site.

We expect to update this Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting a new version of the Policy on this page and by updating the date at the top of the Policy. The changes will become effective as soon as the new version of the Policy is posted on this Site. The current version of the Policy supersedes all prior versions.
