The use of this website, or any other website controlled and operated by East Bay Trusts and Estates Lawyers (“EBTEL”), constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the following Privacy Policy, including any amendments and/or revisions by EBTEL, which may be made at any time:

Providing your personal information is not required in general to use a EBTEL site. However, certain services to which you may subscribe may require you to provide certain personal information, which EBTEL will use to respond to your inquiries or to transmit requested publications or items that we believe may be relevant to you. You may also receive periodically other mailings (in hard copy or digitally) related to EBTEL events, seminars or services that may be of interest to you. If you no longer wish to receive such materials or want your personal information removed from EBTEL’s database, please contact EBTEL at  

If you are not already a current member of EBTEL, do not include any confidential, secret or otherwise sensitive information in communications with EBTEL. Absent such a relationship between you and EBTEL, EBTEL does not have a duty or a legal obligation to keep confidential any information that you provide to us. Unsolicited e-mails and information sent to EBTEL will not be considered confidential or secret, may be disclosed to others, and may not receive a response.

EBTEL does not use cookies on our sites to collect information on or from our users. However, incidental to your use of a EBTEL site, EBTEL’s web server automatically logs certain information such as the name of your Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer you are using, the type of browser software and operating system that you use, the date and time you access this site, the Internet address, if any, from which you linked directly to this site, the Internet address, if any, to which you travel from this site, and other similar traffic-related information.

We may use the foregoing information internally to help us improve our sites and the services that we provide through them, and we may provide such information to our employees, contractors, agents, and designees to the extent necessary to enable them to perform certain site-related services (e.g., web hosting or maintenance services) on EBTEL’s behalf. EBTEL also reserves the right to disclose such information to any third party if we believe that we are required to do so by law, to comply with legal processes or governmental requests, to prevent, investigate, detect or prosecute criminal offences or attacks on the technical integrity of our website, and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of EBTEL, its members, users of our sites, or the public.
