Privacy Policy


This privacy policy (the "Policy") explains how this Site treats "personal information.” "Personal information" is information that is personally identifiable like a name, address, email address, social security number, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

SECTION 1: CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

We receive and collect the following categories of personal information:

Information you provide: For example, we may collect the information received from application forms, e-mails and other correspondence.

Information about your transactions with us or our affiliates.

Information received from consumer reporting agencies.

Information received from other sources in connection with providing your service. With your authorization or consent, we may collect personal information about you from non-affiliated third parties such as accountants, attorneys, banking institutions, financial advisors, insurance agents, and other parties.

Our third party web hosting company uses industry-standard software to track and summarize web log and navigational information (i.e., IP addresses, number of hits, page views, user browser types, etc.).

 

Marc J. Lane & Company also complies with Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act. This law mandates that we verify certain information about you while processing your account application.


SECTION 2: USES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

The personal information we collect may be used to comply with professional guidelines and legal requirements, as well as to perform client services.

 

While providing client services, we may share personal information with:

 

     Employees and contract workers: We may share your personal information with employees (and contract workers) who need such information to conclude transactions on your behalf.

 

  Affiliates: Our clients often prefer an "integrated approach" to our services. For this reason and others, we may share your personal information with their affiliates as permitted by law.

 

     Non-affiliates in connection with processing and servicing your transactions.

 

     Other parties authorized by you. If authorized by you, we  may disclose your personal information to other unrelated third parties. Such unrelated third parties may include attorneys, accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, and government authorities.

 

     Consumer reporting agencies.

 

     Potential purchasing (or merging) entities. In the event that any of our affiliates is acquired by, or merged with, a third party, your personal information may be one of the assets transferred.

We may use information provided through use of this Site to respond to a visitor's request or other correspondence. For example, if you use this Site to submit a contact form, administrators may use the e-mail address you provide on that form to send you updates, newsletters and other information.  “Administrators” include The Law Offices of Marc J. Lane, A Professional Corporation, Marc J. Lane Investment Management, Inc., Marc J. Lane & Company and affiliates.

 

We may use information provided through use of this Site to measure and analyze Site traffic.

 

We may also use information provided through use of this Site in accordance with legal proceedings (i.e., to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims). Similarly, we may use such information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to any person, violations of our Terms of Use, problems with this Site, or as otherwise required by law. Furthermore, in the event that any Marc J. Lane entity (or such entity's assets) is acquired by or merged with a third party, personal information collected by this Site may be one of the assets transferred.
