This Privacy Statement describes how Scharnhorst Ast Kennard Griffin PC (“SAKG”) collects, uses, and discloses certain personal information obtained through our web site at www.sakg.com (“Web Site”).

Effective Date: January 1, 2007 (revised March 15, 2022)
Scharnhorst Ast Kennard Griffin, PC (“SAKG”) owns and operates an online website which can be located at https://sakg.com (the “SAKG Website”).
In general, you can visit the SAKG Website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. There may be times, however, when we may ask for personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, company, e-mail address, phone number, and address (“Personal Information”). We may request Personal Information to correspond with you for a variety of reasons, such as to provide you with a newsletter or publication, to notify you about events, or otherwise respond to your requests or provide information we reasonably believe may be of interest to you. Where applicable, we will differentiate between personal data fields that are optional and those that are mandatory to obtain the requested information.
Please note that if you send a communication to SAKG or one of our employees via e-mail, text message, Teams chat message, and/or through the SAKG Website, your communication will not create an attorney-client relationship with SAKG or any of our attorneys. Do not send us any information that you or anyone else considers to be confidential or secret unless we have first agreed to be your attorneys in that matter. Any information you send us before we agree to be your attorneys cannot be protected from disclosure.
The SAKG Website is hosted on web servers located in the United States of America. If you are located in a non-US jurisdiction, your provision of Personal Information or other access of the SAKG Website constitutes your transfer of such data to the United States, a jurisdiction that may not provide an equivalent level of data protection to the laws in your home country.
The privacy practices set forth in this Privacy Statement are for the SAKG Website only. The SAKG Website may contain links to other sites. SAKG is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites. If you link to or otherwise visit any other site, please review the privacy policies for that site.
A “cookie” is an element of data that can be sent to your browser. Your browser may then store it on your system based on the preferences you have set on your browser.

SAKG uses this information to analyze the traffic on the SAKG Website, and better serve you when you return to the SAKG Website. It is not our intention to use such information to personally identify a user. You have the option to configure your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. Further, you have the option to block all cookies.
