McMahon Law, PLC
Effective Date: June 20, 2018
McMahon Law, PLC believes privacy and discretion are hallmarks of a good law firm and are two characteristics we strive to exhibit in all aspects of our practice, including our website. Except as discussed in the following paragraph, we do not collect, nor do we allow any third-party to collect, any information, none, zero, zip, regarding a visitor to our website. Nor do we use, or allow any third-party to use, tracking cookies. That is why you won't find a "contact us" form or active links on our website. Instead, we trust if you decide you want to learn more about us or if you want to retain us or otherwise make your presence known to us, you will contact us.
Exception. The Client Portal link in the Menu is intended to be used only by clients of McMahon Law, PLC. To protect our clients’ privacy and the security of electronic information stored on our systems, our website employs security measures that will actively attempt to obtain identifiable information regarding a visitor if: a.) a visitor has unsuccessfully attempted to log into the Client Portal; and/or, b.) software commonly associated with malicious attempts to breach secure servers is detected. The information collected in these circumstances is used only to defend against attempts to gain unauthorized access to the Client Portal and to defend against attempts to defeat the security measures in place to protect the Client Portal. The information collected in these circumstances is shared only with the cyber-security vendor retained by McMahon Law, PLC and law enforcement.
SECURE SOCKET LAYER ("SSL") / WEB APPLICATION FIREWALL ("WAF")
Not only does McMahon Law, PLC not collect information regarding visitors to our website, except as specifically mentioned above, we go above and beyond to protect visitors to our website by employing a Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") on the user-end; and, a Web Application Firewall ("WAF"), managed by Sucuri, Inc., on the server-end, to prevent the hacking of our website to download malicious code intended to collect information regarding visitors to our website.
PROTECTION OF CLIENT INFORMATION COMMUNICATED, TRANSMITTED AND STORED ELECTRONICALLY
The lengths we go to protect the privacy of visitors to our website, is nothing compared to the lengths we go to protect client information we store and transmit electronically. As much as we would like to prove our commitment by listing all the safeguards we have in place to protect our client's privacy, the first step in our cyber-security protocol is: "Avoid public disclosure of security measures and methods used to store and electronically transmit confidential information." But suffice it to say, all electronic information stored on our system (i.e. "while at rest") and all confidential information transmitted electronically (i.e. "while in transit) is secured using 256-bit AES end-to-end encryption (i.e. bank-grade/military-grade encryption) and permission based access software.
