Information We Collect

Cooper collects two types of information about users of our Site:

  1. Personally identifiable information: In general, you do not have to provide us with personally identifiable information to use this Site. However, certain services that you may use on this Site may require you to provide personally identifiable information, such as your name and telephone or e-mail address. We use such personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries and to provide you with newsletters or other publications that you request. You may also receive other e-mailings related to Cooper articles, updates, bulletins, seminars, programs, or events that we think may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive mailings from us, please refer to the paragraph below headed “Changing or Deleting Personal Information.”  If you contact us by e-mail or the contact form on the Site, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and we reserve the right to use your e-mail address, and any information that you provide to us in your message to respond thereto. In addition, on rare occasions, we may send by e-mail important administrative information regarding the Site or services to users who have provided us with their e-mail addresses; because this information may be important to your use of the Site, it is not possible to “opt out” of receiving these e-mails.
  2. Non-personally identifiable information: we may use cookies to collect non-personally identifiable information in connection with the Site. Our web pages may incorporate “pixel tags”, “web beacons”, or similar tracking technologies (collectively, “pixel tags”) that allow us or our agents to track the actions of users of our Site. Pixel tags are used to collect non-personally identifiable information, such as the name of your internet service provider, the IP address of the computer you are using, the type of browser software and operating system that you use, the date and time you access our Site, the website address, if any, from which you linked directly to our Site, the website address, if any, to which you travel from our Site, and other similar traffic-related information. We may also aggregate your information with similar data collected from other users to help us improve our Site and the services that we provide through our Site. We do not use such data in any way to create or maintain a personal profile of you or collect personally identifiable information from you.

Children’s Privacy

This Website is intended for use by a general audience and does not offer services to children. If you are younger than thirteen, please do not provide any personally identifiable information while using the Site.  Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that they cannot use this Website.

Use of Information

We may use the information that you provide us for the following: contact you, provide services, answer questions, send you email newsletters, resolve disputes, and enforce our terms of service.

Generally, we will not disclose personally identifiable information that we collect through your use of the Site to unaffiliated third parties. We reserve the right, however, to provide such information to our employees, contractors, agents, and designees to the extent necessary to enable them to perform certain Site-related services (e.g., web hosting, improve Site-related services and features, or maintenance services) on our behalf.

We also reserve the right to disclose such information to any third party if we believe that we are required to do so for any or all of the following reasons: (i) by law; (ii) to comply with legal processes or governmental requests; (iii) to prevent, investigate, detect, or prosecute criminal offenses or attacks on the technical integrity of the Site or our network; and/or (iv) to protect the rights, property, or safety of Cooper and its affiliates, partners, and employees, the users of the Site, or the public.

Sale of Your Information

We do not sell your personal information. To opt-out of future sales, contact us at

Changing or Deleting Personal Information

We retain all of the information that you have provided to us until we no longer need the information in connection with the services provided to you.  If you would like to change your personal information, or if you no longer wish to receive materials from us, or want your personal information removed from Cooper’s database, please contact us at


Cooper seeks to adopt commercially reasonable security measures consistent with legal industry practice to assist in protecting against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personally identifiable information which is under our control. Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of the foregoing, while we undertake commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and Cooper’s servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site. You provide all such information entirely at your own risk. As noted, Cooper does not practice law on or with the Site, and confidential client communications are not provided by or accessible on the Site.

Online Tracking

Cooper does not use the Site to engage in the collection of personally identifiable information about Site users’ online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.

Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable DNT by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.  However, we do not support such Do Not Track (“DNT”) web browser preferences.

Revisions to Privacy Policy

We will notify you of any changes to this Privacy Policy by posting the updated privacy policy to this website. The Internet and the benefits it offers are constantly and rapidly evolving, as are the ways in which people use the Internet and the laws surrounding such use. Cooper therefore reserves the right to update and revise this Privacy Policy at any time. You can determine if this Privacy Policy has been revised since your last visit by referring to the “Effective Date of Current Policy” date at the top of this page. Your use of our Site constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the Privacy Policy and of the Terms & Conditions as amended or revised by us, and you should therefore review this Privacy Policy and the Terms & Conditions regularly to ensure that you are aware of their terms.
