Documents are delivered to you via UPS or similar delivery services, the United States Postal Service, or electronically, including through online storage platforms or email. Unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to or from our website or through the use of our services, and you provide this information at your own risk. ACCORDINGLY, WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR THE THEFT, LOSS, OR INTERCEPTION OF, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR DATA OR COMMUNICATIONS BY USING OUR WEBSITE AND OUR SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND ASSUME THESE RISKS.

 

IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR PRIVACY HAS BEEN BREACHED PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY AT INFO@CATAUDELLALAW.COM

Information for California Residents.

 

If you are a resident of California, this section provides information regarding your rights, and Cataudella Law’s responsibilities, regarding your Personal Information. 

 

California Resident Rights.

 

California law allows California residents, upon a verifiable user or member request, to request that a business that collects users’ and members’ Personal Information give users and members access to certain information.  This includes the specific pieces and categories of Personal Information that the business has collected about the user or member, the categories of sources for that information, the business or commercial purposes for collecting the information, and the categories of third parties with which the information was shared.

 

California residents also have the right to submit a request for deletion of information under certain circumstances.  This is not an absolute right and, in some circumstances, Cataudella Law may decline to delete the information, such as when Cataudella Law has an on-going business relationship with you, when we have a continued need to use the information for purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, or when we are legally required to retain the information.   

 

Consistent with California law, if you choose to exercise your rights, we will not charge you different prices or provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your information.

 

How to Submit a Request for Access to Information or Deletion of Information

 

If you would like to submit a request about your data, we encourage you to do so by emailing info@cataudellalaw.com. 

 

After you submit the request, you will be asked to verify your email address and may also be asked to provide additional information in order to verify your identity, including potentially providing a declaration under penalty of perjury.  Cataudella Law will attempt to verify your identity by asking for information that correlates with the information that we have previously collected about you.   Where this is not possible, Cataudella Law may request you submit additional information for verification, such as proof of residency or redacted government-issued identification.  Please note that consistent with California law, we will be unable to satisfy your request until we have verified your identity.

 

You may also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, you must provide Cataudella Law with written permission for the agent to make the request on your behalf or provide us with an executed power of attorney.
