Information You Provide Directly
Information We Collect Automatically When You Access or Use the Site
We and our third-party business partners (including any third-party service providers or third party content, advertising, and analytics providers) may use a variety of technologies, including cookies and web beacons, that automatically or passively collect information whenever you access, use, or otherwise interact with the Site (“Usage Information”). Usage Information includes the hardware model, browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Site, any search terms you entered into a search engine that led you to our Site, the areas within our Site that you visited, and the time of day you visited our Site, your time zone, location information, and mobile network (if applicable), among other information. We may also automatically collect your IP address or another unique identifier for any computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access our Site.
We use the following tracking technologies (collectively referred to as “Tracking Technologies”) to automatically collect information when you interact with us online:
Web Beacons. (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are small pieces of code used to collect usage analytics. They help us determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed and if so, how many times. When you ask us to send you information, we may use web beacons to establish when an email has been opened.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.
Chat. When you participate in a chat feature we may offer, Seeger Weiss can record, use, and retain your communications and the data you provide in order to respond to you during the chat session, provide support, and to improve our services. If you do not consent, please do not continue with chat assistance.
Social Media Features
The Site may permit you to interact with a third-party platform, for example, the Site may contain links that direct visitors to our social media pages (such as LinkedIn and Facebook) (“Social Media Features”). Both we and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Site and the third-party platform. These third-party platforms may collect certain information about your visits to our Site through the Social Media Features we have integrated into the Site, regardless of whether or not you affirmatively interact with the Social Media Features and whether or not you are logged into (or have) an account with the third party platform.
If you use certain Social Media Features, your interaction and personal information may be publicly disclosed on the Site and on the third-party platform. If others give us access to their profile, page, or other content on a third-party platform, we may also receive information about you if it is accessible through that content, as determined by the third-party platform or your connected user.

Providing such self-identifying data is voluntary, but if you do provide such data, we and/or our service providers may submit that data to the appropriate government or regulatory agencies to fulfill reporting requirements, use the data for diversity, equity, and inclusion analysis and reporting, and use that data to defend against employment-related complaints.

There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, our Site does not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser, except as required by applicable law. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit www.allaboutdnt.com.
