Privacy Policy

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Collected Information: Gillespie Law Group, LLC (“Gillespie Law Group, LLC ,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collect information from you when you access our website(s) located at www.illinoisadoptionlawyer.com and its affiliated pages, information, and content (the “Website”), create an account, or submit a request for additional information, or contact us using the online form. When registering on our Website, completing the online form, or ordering a service after registration, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card or other payment information. You may visit our general Website without entering this information. 

In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is used in non-identifiable ways, without any reference to personal information. For example, we may use information we collect about Website users to optimize our Website and understand its traffic and usage patterns. In other cases, we associate the information we collect using cookies and related technologies with personal information, and in that case, this Privacy Policy governs how we use that information.

Online Privacy Policy Only: This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through our Website and not to information collected offline or via email, mail, fax, telephone, or in any other way, except as specified above.

Cookies: A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of the Website, and their Website access preferences. Website visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Website, with the drawback that certain features of the Website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. 

Action Tags: Our Website may use a common web technology called “action tags” (also called single pixel gifs or web beacons) to anonymously track usage and other web activity information. Action tags (including third-party tags) may be used to provide data to third parties for tracking purposes. However, our Website does not use action tags to collect or transfer Personal Information.

Google Analytics: We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site.  We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information.  We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

An IP address is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. Additionally, your IP address may be used to help identify you, to track activity within our Website, and to gather broad demographic information.

Limited Disclosure of Information: We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties information that may directly identify you as an individual (“Personal Information”). This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business, or servicing you (“Business Partners”), so long as those parties agree to protect Personal Information on terms not less restrictive than the terms of this Privacy Policy.
