Welcome to the website for Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC (“SKO”). We are committed to maintaining the privacy of information you may provide us and want you to be aware of how we collect, use and disclose any information you may provide to us.
We own the information collected via the website and we may use it for our own purposes, including marketing.

Our website is designed to provide visitors to the site with information concerning the legal services we offer, our attorneys and their experience, employment opportunities, the history of our firm and other materials concerning our firm. For example, through the website, visitors may access articles prepared by our attorneys, seminars in which our attorneys are involved and news items related to the firm.

Personal information is information that you provide us through the website that could reasonably be used to identify you. Anonymous information is not attributable to a specific individual and may include for example statistical information relating to how visitors use this site. Any anonymous information linked with personal information will be treated as personal information.
We ask that you not disclose to us any sensitive personal information such as social security number, credit card information, information relating to race, ethnicity, political opinions, religious beliefs, your health, criminal background or trade union membership on or through the website.
We and our service providers may collect information from you in several ways:

We may receive and store certain types of internet usage information whenever you visit the website, such as your click-stream data and your IP address.
The website may use a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites. We also may use these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on the website, such as the frequency with which users visit various parts of the website.

We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data. An IP address is a number associated with the service through which you access the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not generally personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information we obtain from you directly on the website.
