Information Sent by Way of the Web Site is Not Secure

The Firm takes reasonable measures to protect personal information from unauthorized access, misuse, loss, modification or disclosure. Unfortunately, despite such measures, no data transmission can be one hundred percent secure. Thus, any information sent to the firm by Internet e-mail or through the Web site is not secure and is done so on a non-confidential basis. Any information you send the Firm over the Internet, either through the Firm's Web site or via email is done at your own risk. The Firm is not and will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission, networks that we do not control, or unauthorized acts of third parties.

Retention of Personal Information

The Firm will keep your personal information until such a time that we no longer expect to need to use it for any legal and legitimate purpose and otherwise in accordance with all applicable laws. At the appropriate time, we will take reasonable steps to destroy your personal information or ensure that your personal information is de-identified, except where we need to retain such information to satisfy legal and professional ethical obligations.

Access and Correction

If you would like to review the personal information we have collected about you via the Web site, or request that we update or delete it, please contact us at privacy@keanmiller.com

Transmission of information from this Web site does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and the firm, nor is it intended to do so. The transmission of the Web site, in part or in whole, and/or any communication with us via Internet e-mail through this site does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship between us and any recipients.
