from consumers who contact SNDIL by telephone, mail, e-mail, or
by other means, and are clients or potential clients of SNDIL.

personal identification numbers, credit card numbers, or bank
account numbers. The collected personally identifiable

The SNDIL website uses
software provided by the web host that provides statistics
related to visits to the SNDIL website. The statistics
include information such as the type of browser used, the domain
from which the visit originated, and the type of keywords used.
The software does not provide any personally identifiable
information of the visitor to the website.

personally identifiable information obtained from consumers.
SNDIL does not normally share personally identifiable
information with third parties. SNDIL considers this information
as confidential and is only released to another party with the
consumer's permission, as may be required by law, to avoid a
conflict of interest, or as may be required in the furtherance
of the matter under inquiry.
Consumers often employ
SNDIL's services through, or in conjunction with, an attorney or
other personal representative. In these circumstances,
SNDIL may share personally identifiable information with the
attorney or personal representative as required in furtherance
of the matter under inquiry.
On occasion, SNDIL may be
required to disclose a limited amount of client or potential
client information to a third party in order to avoid a conflict
of interest. In some cases, a third party may deduce a
client or potential client relationship between a consumer and
SNDIL, through SNDIL's refusal to accept a case due to a
conflict of interest.
On occasion, a SNDIL
employee may need to examine a document in the possession of a
third party. In this case, the release of a limited amount
of personally identifiable information may be required in
furtherance of the examination.
SNDIL employees may be
required to testify in court proceedings, depositions,
arbitration proceedings, and other venues of inquiry.
SNDIL employees may also be required to respond to subpoenas and
interrogatories. In these situations, the release of
personally identifiable information may be required.
SNDIL has implemented
technical measures to protect against the risk of unauthorized
access to personally identifiable information, however, SNDIL
cannot fully eliminate this risk.
