What Information Is Collected

When you visit our website, two types of information may be collected: personal information you knowingly chose to disclose (such as your name, address, telephone number and email address), which is collected on an individual basis, and website use information collected on an aggregate basis when you and others browse our website.

Lipe Lyons does not collect any personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily choose to submit or otherwise disclose such information to us, including information submitted or disclosed by mail, telephone, fax or electronically.

Our Policy regarding Cookies

Using standard technology known as “cookies,” we may obtain information about your usage of our website, including the date and time of visits, the pages reviewed, and the time spent on our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis and is not associated with you individually.

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. When you visit our website we send you a cookie. Cookies may be used in the following ways:
  • To enable the personalization features on our website (which give you the ability to recall recently viewed pages and see information which you have input on line).
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how visitors use our site and to help us improve the structure of our Website.
Two types of cookies may be used on this website: session cookies, which expire when you close your browser; and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).

Disabling/Enabling Cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the features of our site if cookies are disabled.

How Information Is Collected
  • Legal Updates and Articles – If you sign up on our website to receive news, alerts and publications from our firm we will use the information you provide to provide the information requested and may use it to communicate with you about other topics and events we believe may be of interest to you.
  • Events – If you register on our website for a firm-sponsored event, we will use your registration information – name, telephone number and email address, to register you for the event and may use it to communicate with you about other events and topics we believe may be of interest to you.

We automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as the browser type, operating system, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

How We Use the Information Collected

We use information collected for business purposes and to enhance customer service. We may also use information collected to notify you about legal developments, services, and special events. You can notify us that you do not want to receive these notices by unsubscribing via email at

We also use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.

Sharing and Transfer of Personal Information

We will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to third-parties, but we may share your personal information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf. We do not authorize service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with applicable law.

We may share personal information if we are required to do so by law or legal process, in response to a request from government authorities, or if we believe disclosure is necessary to prevent personal harm or financial loss.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will require that the transferee use personal information you have provided through this website in a manner consistent with our privacy policy and the applicable legal framework.

How We Protect Personal Information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal information we collect. Any information provided to Lipe Lyons is treated with care and discretion. Lipe Lyons will take a proactive approach to help ensure the information is kept private and not misused. We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online. However, we do not guarantee the security of your personal information.

Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts

While we strive to protect your personal information, no data transmission is 100% secure. Because Lipe Lyons cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, you do so at your own risk. Lipe Lyons will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third-parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we act reasonably to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.
