As professionals engaged in the provision of legal services to clients worldwide, Solomon Firm, PLLC, (the firm) is committed to protecting the privacy of confidential and “Personal Information”). It has always been and remains the policy of the firm to comply with the rules of professional conduct, which impose a duty to preserve and protect confidential client information, upon lawyers and their associated personnel.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
We may use that Personal Information where in our legitimate interest to do so for the following purposes: to contact you and respond to your requests and enquiries; to personalize your visit and use of our Internet Services and to assist you while you use those services; to carry out, monitor and analyze our business or website operations; to conduct our recruiting and selection process; to provide you with legal services, if you are or become a client of the firm, and otherwise deal with you, and administer the matters you instruct us on; to contact you (unless you tell us that you prefer us not to) regarding legal or law firm developments that may be of interest to you; to enter into or carry out contracts of various kinds; or to comply with applicable laws, regulations, guidance or professional obligations that we may be subject to, including anti-money laundering requirements (where Personal Information is necessary for the firm to carry out its anti-money laundering checks failure to provide such information may result in the firm not being able to provide the representation).
Confidentiality, Security, and Retention of Personal Information
Disclosure and Transfer of Personal Information
We do not disclose any Personal Information to unrelated parties outside of the firm except in limited circumstances. Such circumstances include disclosures to our agents or data processors or other contractors acting on our behalf and at our direction, subject to appropriate confidentiality, privacy and information security commitments provided by the receiving party, or where we believe it necessary to provide a service which you have requested, or as permitted or required by law, or as otherwise authorized or directed by you. Consistent with our professional obligations, we may provide Personal Information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the provision of such information is required or permitted by law, such as in connection with the investigation or assertion of our legal defenses or for our compliance matters.
A cookie is a text file sent by a web server and placed on your computer by your web browser. Cookies can be usefully divided into two different types, session and persistent. Session cookies differ from persistent cookies primarily in that session cookies are temporary and expire and are normally deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies, in contrast, remain stored on your computer after you close your browser until they are deleted either because they expire or you delete them. The firm uses session cookies in connection with its Internet Services, except for Internet Services that require you to log in, such as our client extranets, and a Region Code cookie that persists over time and ensures that you are directed to the correct version of our website.
Do Not Track Signals
“Do Not Track” signals are options available on your browser to tell operators of websites that you do not wish to have your online activity tracked. Our websites operate no differently if these “Do Not Track” signals are enabled or disabled. Our Internet Services do not allow any third parties to collect Personal Information about your online activities over time or across websites for their own purposes.

The firm does not sell or share your Personal Information with third-party companies for their direct marketing purposes without your consent. To exercise your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, please send us your request using the “Contact Us” section below.
