Our Privacy Policy



Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.


This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.


What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website or app?


When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number or other details to help you with your experience.


When do we collect information?


We collect information from you when you fill out a form or enter information on our site.



How do we use your information?


We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:


      • To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.

      • To quickly process your transactions.

      • To send periodic emails regarding your order or other products and services.


How do we protect visitor information?


Our website and the equipment that hosts it are scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible.


We use regular Malware Scanning.


Any personal information you voluntarily share is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.


We implement a variety of security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. A this time, no user-submitted data is required to access and use this site. Only electronic submissions by means of the "Request A Contact" form on the "Contact Us" page constitute "User Data & Personal Information".


Any online financial transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored nor are processed on our servers and systems. This includes the use of the PayPal online payment services. All PayPal transactions are handled directly from their website or application using an account held with them (PayPal) not RSWSLAW.COM. We only provide a valid electronic hyperlink to their web page & application. Any client that uses that link and provider does so knowing that we are not hosting that service ourselves and that we do not offer support for such service; but we do convey that PayPal also protects our clients' privacy and information as securely as we do.


Do we use 'cookies'?


We currently do not use cookies for tracking purposes. However, if you have a Google account and/or have a cookie present on your system or web browser for Google services, then you will be able to make better use of the mapping & directions feature found on the "Contact Us" page of this site.


You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.


If you 'disable cookies' in your web browser or in your mobile system preferences, some features will be disabled that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services can not be guaranteed to function properly.


Even without "cookies enabled" clients can still make online payments through PayPal. Please note that our servers do not process your online payment. PayPal Payment Services handles the entirety of the online transaction through their own systems. We simply provide you (the client) the web hyperlinks and our account information necessary to complete the payment.



Third Party Disclosure


We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.


However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.


Third party links


Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.


― Google


Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en


We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.



― California Online Privacy Protection Act ―


CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf


According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

• Users can visit our site anonymously

• Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.

• Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.


Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

      • On our Privacy Policy Page


Users are able to change their personal information:

      • By emailing us

      • By calling us

      • Others


How does our site handle do not track signals?

We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.


IP addresses (IP v4) are recorded in the web server logs of all visitors and systems that access our site as part of the standard operating procedure of the web-server adn application-server  operting systems and applications of our hosting company (Siteground). We do not use this information to track visitors but to serve them web data through the Internet browser and to troubleshoot connectivity errors that arise as reported.


Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking



― COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) ―


When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We do not market to children under 13.



Fair Information Practices


The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.


In order to be in full compliance with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:


We will notify the users via in site notification

      • Within 7 business days


It should be noted that this site does not store user data and it does not require any user-supplied data to operate. Data may be voluntarily submitted to our offices using the “Request A Contact” form on the Contact Us page but be aware that submitted data is not stored on this site nor is it shared with 3rd party vendors. The “Request A Contact” form functions by the simple means of email.  The form emails any entered data to our general office email account.


We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

We value your privacy and online safety. This site (www.rswslaw.com) has been built to adhere

to the most notable state and federal privacy laws & 3rd party initiatives, including:

  • California Online Privacy Protection Act (Caloppa)
  • Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
  • Federal Trade Commission Fair Information Practices
  • Google Adwords Privacy Policy Requirements
  • Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
  • Can-Spam Act
