Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how Kronenberger Rosenfeld, LLP (“Kronenberger Rosenfeld,” the “firm,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) collects, uses, and shares personal information of users who visit this website (the “Website”) or otherwise submit a case submission to us. This Privacy Policy does not apply to Kronenberger Rosenfeld's collection of information by any other means, including without limitation from its clients in the course of representing them.

Each time you (“You” or “Your”) use the Website, the then-current version of this Privacy Policy will apply. We encourage You to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. IF AT ANY TIME YOU FIND THIS PRIVACY POLICY UNACCEPTABLE, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE WEBSITE. Unless Kronenberger Rosenfeld obtains Your express consent, any revised Privacy Policy will apply only to information collected after the date of the revised Privacy Policy.

How We Collect Information Collection

Kronenberger Rosenfeld collects information through the Website that You voluntarily provide to us, such as Your name, email address, phone number, address, and any information that You submit with an online case submission form or when You join the firm’s email list. Your information may include identifiers, such as Your email address, professional, employment, or transactional information, categories of information protected under California Civil Code §1798.80, such as Your phone number, and characteristics of protected classifications under state or federal law.
