What personal information is collected through this website and how is it used?
We collect information about our users in three ways: directly from the user, from our Web server logs and through cookies.
User-supplied information: If you fill out the “contact” form on this website, or use the payment portal, we ask you to provide some personal information (such as e-mail address, name, phone number and state [credit card/debit card information for your payment).

Please do NOT submit any confidential, proprietary or personally sensitive identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”). This type of information should be provided directly to the office in a face to face meeting or phone call with the office. If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission. Information that you provide to us through the contact form or payment portal will be used so that we may respond to your inquiry or process your payment.
