This Digital Privacy and Cookies Policy (“Policy”) applies to your interaction with The Law Office of Caroline Norman Frost (“CNF”): (1) at any online or mobile site or application that CNF owns and controls (“Site”), unless a different online and/or mobile or other privacy policy is posted relating to a particular site, application, product, or service, or is made available to you and by its terms supplants this Policy: or (2) via a CNF advertisement, page, or account on a third party site. CNF may collect, retain, use, and disclose personal and other information about you in accordance with this Policy. Other privacy policies may also apply in addition to the terms of this Policy.

Consumer data collected from CNF’s website includes devices used, referring domains, and locations.  Consumers who fill out a contact form or other fillable fields on CNF’s website will also provide names, phone numbers, email addresses, and other case information that you provide.

Additional privacy policies and notices

Please note that where CNF has another type of presence on a site owned by a third party, such as a page on a social media site, that third party’s privacy policy and terms of use will apply to the third party’s collection, use, and disclosure of data (rather than this Policy), unless specifically stated otherwise.
