Use of this website (“Website”) and the materials presented on it is subject to the following terms and conditions. By using this Website, you agree to these terms and conditions and acknowledge reading them. If you do not agree to these terms, then you should redirect your browser to another web site – although, frankly, you probably should reconsider your use of the internet altogether, as pretty much every other web site operates under terms similar to this one.
The term “Law Firm” in this Legal Notice refers to Neufeld Marks, unless the context otherwise requires. All materials have been prepared for general information purposes only to permit you to learn more about our law firm and our services. The information presented is not legal advice, is not to be acted on as such, may not be current, and is subject to change without notice.
This Website is not intended as attorney advertising or solicitation in any jurisdiction where the site would (a) be so characterized and (b) fail to comply with all applicable laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction. Law Firm does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit to this Website or solely upon attorney advertising, or where to do so would not otherwise comply with applicable local laws and rules.
1. No Attorney-Client Relationship or Legal Advice.
Communication of information by, in, to, or through this Website and your reciept or use of it (1) is not provided in the course of and does not create or constitute an attorney-client relationship, (2) is not intended as a solicitation, (3) is not intended to convey or constitute legal advice, and (4) is not a substitute for obtaining legal advice from a qualified attorney. You should not act upon any such information without first seeking qualified professional counsel on your specific matter. The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely upon Website communications or advertisements.
You also should not rely upon the transmission of an email-message to an attorney through this Website to create an attorney-client relationship. The transmission or exchange of information will not do so. Without an attorney-client relationship in the matter, we cannot assure you that your communications will be privileged or (unless we otherwise agree in a specific case) that we will treat them as such. Please do not send us any confidential or sensitive information until you speak with one of our attorneys and obtain prior written authorization to send that information to us.
2. Licensing Status.
Unless otherwise expressly specified, no attorney of Law Firm is certified by, or certified as specialists or experts by, any professional or governmental agency or authority. Designations of our firm’s practice areas, or of expertise, experience, practice concentrations or specializations are not intended (1) to suggest or represent the contrary, or (2) to suggest any professional or governmental standard by which such experience is measured, or (3) to denigrate other attorneys or firms in any way.
Unless otherwise expressly specified, Law Firm attorneys are licensed to practice only in California.
3. Privacy Statement
We care about your privacy, and want you to understand what information we collect about you, and how we use it. In general, we collect the same information as most other business websites, and use it in the same way as most other business websites.
» Types of Information

We may use a number of different cookies on our Website. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit http://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance. Currently we operate an “implied consent” policy, which means that we assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this Website, or you should delete the cookies after having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari, etc.)

» Third Party Cookies
These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this Website. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies may be set by Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and other social media. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this Website.
» What We Do With The Information We Collect
We use the information we collect to:
- identify levels and areas of interest in our company, and to improve and refine our Website
- provide you with information and services at your request
- provide you with additional information based on your web browsing history and/or your demographic information
- contact you via email about events, opportunities, and happenings related to our company
» How We Protect The Information We Collect
We do not sell any personally identifiable information provided by our visitors to any unrelated third party, but we may share it with related entities or with unrelated third parties in connection with our own marketing activities or the maintenance and operation of our site, or as may be legally required.
Although we use security that we believe to be appropriate to protect the limited personal identifying information disclosed to us on this Website, we do not guarantee that our security precautions will protect against and we expressly disclaim any liability for any loss, misuse, or alteration of your information or from your access to or use of our information.
We do not process or store data outside the United States, but unfortunately we do not control the privacy policies of any third party we may work with. By using our Website, you understand that other countries may have privacy rights that are less protective than those in effect in the United States, and you consent to the cross-border transfer of any information we’ve obtained from you.
» Additional Privacy Terms
This Website does not currently respond to any browser “Do Not Track” beacon or similar setting, largely because we do not control the Google Analytics implementation we are using to (anonymously) track visitors to our Website. Our Website will, however, respond to “Do Not Track” settings to the extent Google Analytics does so.
