Hilgers Graben Privacy Notice
Effective April 1, 2023
Although the internet is a helpful tool, it comes with security risks. Modern consumers use the internet for many different facets of their daily lives, many of which require them to provide personal identifying information. It’s important to us at Hilgers Graben PLLC (the “Firm”) to take reasonable steps to explain how we collect and use your data and then to keep it secure.
To protect your privacy, the Firm takes reasonable steps to help ensure customer privacy and data protection.
- We won’t sell or give away your name, mail address, phone number, email address or other personal information to third parties except in the event of a sale of the Firm, for analytics as described below, or as otherwise needed to provide you with the services you have requested from us.
- We use reasonable security measures to protect your information from unauthorized users. We use vendors to maintain and update our systems regularly to help ensure the most reasonable possible privacy protection.
When we need information to personally identify you or contact you, we will tell you unless it is obvious from the circumstances why the information is requested. For example, if you inquire about employment opportunities or request/download materials. We use and store any personal information for three primary purposes:
- To provide legal services to you (and any related issues or services thereto).
- To provide you with requested materials or information, including about our services.
- To work with you regarding inquiries about employment opportunities with the Firm.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES
If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still use most of our website. However, you will not be able to access information or services that require that you input at least some personal information, like a name and email address. However, if you do provide us with basic contact information, you will be able to obtain things like electronic newsletters and other communications from us.

Your personal information is not shared outside the Firm except under the conditions explained above, i.e., to provide the services you request from us. Inside the Firm, we take reasonable steps to protect data via password-protected systems with other security measures in place, for example two-factor authentication. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where our subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
