What Information Do We Collect Through This Site?
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
Information may be automatically received by us when you visit our Site regardless of any direct communication you may have initiated. Such information includes the name of the domain from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our Site; the geographic location from which you access our Site; and the Internet address (URL) of the web site from which you linked directly to our Site. We may use this information to monitor and analyze the usage of our Site for marketing and other purposes. Also, the information we capture provides us with the ability to enhance our customers' browsing experiences and to determine aggregate information about our user base and usage patterns.
Information You Provide
We collect information, including personal information, which you knowingly and voluntarily provide using your mouse and keyboard when you use the Site. You will be prompted to volunteer information under the Connect With Us link. Information that you do decide to provide may be used by us to assist in providing information to you or in responding to your inquiries, as well as for our internal purposes and purposes of contacting you.
Generally, we do not link the information provided by your browser to information that identifies you by name. You should know, however, that when you access this Site by clicking on a link in an electronic communication you receive from us, your browser tells us that someone has clicked on a particular link in that particular electronic communication. We use this information to improve our marketing efforts. In addition, we review our server logs — which contain visitors' IP addresses — for security and fraud prevention purposes. If criminal activity is suspected, we may share our server logs and the personal information we have collected through the Site with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
Use of "Cookies" and Similar Technologies
When you use our Site, we might store some information on your computer. We use "cookies" and other Web technologies for a number of purposes, including to collect information about the ways visitors use the Site — for example, which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page; to support the features and functionality of the Site — for example, to save you the trouble of re-entering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits to the Site; and to personalize your experience when you use the Site.
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave the Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit the Site, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of the Site if you set your browser to reject cookies.
We offer you the opportunity to join our mailing lists. You may select to be placed on mailing lists for any, all, or none of the areas listed. To receive your selected information, we ask that you provide general contact information such as your name and email.

Inquiries and Comments
Under the heading Connect With Us, we also invite you to submit inquiries and comments.

Use of The Site, Including Sending an Email Through The Site, Does Not Create An Attorney Client Relationship
We welcome the receipt of e-mail. However, you should be aware that the act of sending e-mail to Middleton or a specific attorney at the firm does not create an attorney-client relationship, and that you are not entitled to have us treat the information contained in an e-mail as confidential if no attorney-client relationship exists between us at the time that we receive that e-mail. An attorney-client relationship cannot be created until we consider potential conflicts of interest and agree to that relationship. If you are interested in establishing an attorney-client relationship, we invite you to call or visit with one of our attorneys for that purpose.
How Can You Access, Update or Correct Your Personal Information?
If you wish to access, update or correct your personal information, please contact us by email at email@example.com or postal mail at Middleton Reutlinger, 401 South Fourth Street, Suite 2600, Louisville, KY 40202, Attn. Marketing. We will respond to you within a reasonable time and, in any case, within the time limits established by applicable law. We may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In most cases, we will provide access and correct or delete any inaccurate information you discover. In some cases, however, we may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires us to do so or if we are unable to verify your identity. We reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to charge a reasonable fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the personal information we hold about you.
Third-Party Web Sites
We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information we collect. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases. Your transmissions are, therefore, at your own risk.
