We respect your privacy and aim to keep you aware of your personal data matters.
By using this site, you consent to the collection, storage, processing, use, and sharing of information as specified below.
We are Biryuk Law Firm PLLC, a law firm established in New York City, NY, U.S.
Our website address (URL) is https://www.biryuklaw.com.
On this site, we collect your personal data for various reasons from various sources, including:
- Contact/subscription forms
- Embedded/linked content
Below, we describe what personal data we collect from each source and why we collect this data.
When you leave a comment on our site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, your IP address, and your browser user agent string to help detect spam.
If you submit a contact/subscription form entry, we collect and process your:
- name (full, first or last name or anything else you enter into the name field);
- email address;
- subscription form, date and time;
- email open and click rates;
- unsubscribe; and
- other details.
If you enter any personal data into a contact/subscription form but do not submit the entry, we also collect that data from the abandoned form.
If you submit a contact/subscription form entry while being offline, we further collect that data when you get online.
To safeguard your subscription and verify your email address, we use double opt-in. This means that, after you subscribe on our site, you have to confirm your subscription by clicking a link that we email you. Until you click that link, you are not subscribed.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter (email list) at any time. The unsubscribe link is available at the bottom of our emails.
Surveys, Polls, and Quizzes
We collect, process, and store your answers to our surveys, polls, and quizzes.
We use those survey/poll/quiz answers to provide you better materials and services.
Cookies and API Integration
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt in to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience, so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
This site includes embedded or linked content (e.g., videos, maps, images, publications etc) from other websites. For example, we use YouTube video embeds. Such embedded content behaves exactly the same as if you have visited the other website.
We use Google Analytics (including ) to track traffic and apply retargeting on our site.
With Google signals active, Google Analytics associates the visitation information it collects from our site with Google information from accounts of signed-in users who have consented to this association for the purpose of ads personalization. This Google information may include your location, search history, YouTube history, and data from sites that partner with Google. This information is used to provide aggregated and anonymized insights into your cross-device behaviors.
These features are subject to the Google Analytics Advertising Features policies.
For typography, our site uses Google Fonts.
To display the fonts that are not hosted locally (on our server), our site links and connects to the Google Font API. This, for example, relates to YouTube video embeds and Google Maps.
In such a case, Google (as a third party) hosts Google Fonts on its servers. As such, Google collects and logs your IP address and other information.
For details, please refer to the Google Privacy and Data Collection FAQ.
Data Retention Term
We store your personal data indefinitely. We can erase your personal data at any time at our own discretion.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Data Use Purposes
We use your personal data for communication, marketing, and client service purposes. For example, we use your personal data to email you our newsletters about our blog posts, articles, alerts, memos, news, updates, promotions, and special offers.
We store your name, email address, and other personal data on our account at a third-party email service provider (MailChimp) and Meta Business Suite (including Events Manager).
This allows us to email you our newsletter and personalize our ads to you.
We may store all of your data in Meta Business Suite, Apple iCloud, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and/or another cloud. For details, please review, among others, the following terms and policies:
Your comments are checked through an automated spam detection service (Akismet). This service collects information about visitors who comment on our site. The information that Akismet collects typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and site URL (along with other information that the commenter directly provides such as the commenter’s name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
If you have left a comment on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.
You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we must keep for legal, administrative, or security purposes.
Therefore, please review this page frequently to remain up-to-date with the information we collect, store, process, use, and share as well as why and how we do this. Please review an updated policy carefully to make sure you understand our practices and procedures correctly and fully.
