Privacy Policy

The New York County Lawyers’ Association (“NYCLA”) has created this statement (the “Privacy Policy”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to our visitors’ privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this web site: (the “NYCLA Site”).

Personal and Non-Personal Information

NYCLA may use personally identifiable (i.e., addresses, phone number, e-mail addresses) to contact users regarding NYCLA’s activities, seminars, services and products; process requests or orders; and permit members to contact other members. NYCLA may also use non-personally identifiable information (i.e., a user’s browser, computer operating system or Internet service provider) to enhance and improve a user’s use of the NYCLA Site. When using the NYCLA Site, you may be asked to provide certain personal information about yourself for the purpose of applying for membership, membership renewals, registering and paying for continuing legal education seminars, updating member contact information on the membership database, signing up for a committee, submitting a resume or purchasing a NYCLA product. NYCLA will not share any personal information that you provide with any unaffiliated third party without your consent.


Membership Database

NYCLA provides information about its members such as contact information, practices areas or law school attended on a password-protected section of the NYCLA Site that only members may access. Members may access their information contained on the database to review, update, edit or delete such information by using their membership ID number. Additionally, members may decide what information shall be displayed to other members on the membership database (i.e., whether the database will display the member’s home or office address or a member’s legal practice areas).



“Cookies” are pieces of information that are placed on an individual’s computer hard drive to enable the individual to more easily communicate and interact with a Web site. NYCLA may use cookies to customize your experience on the NYCLA Site. NYCLA uses cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password, (if you have registered with us) so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit the NYCLA Site, and for other purposes. You may disallow receiving cookies at any time through your web browser. If you disable cookies, however, you will no longer have access to the Membership Directory.


Internet Protocol (IP) Address

NYCLA may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the NYCLA Site. Your IP address is used to help identify you for the duration of a session and to gather broad demographic information.


Consent to Processing

By providing any personal information to the NYCLA Site, users, including without limitation users in the European Union, fully understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of such information in the United States.



The NYCLA Site may contain links to other sites. Other sites may also reference or link to the NYCLA Site. NYCLA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other sites.



NYCLA attempts to provide for the secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, NYCLA cannot guarantee that communications between you and NYCLA, and NYCLA and you, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties, and users of the NYCLA Site use the NYCLA Site at their own risk.


Legal Disclosure

NYCLA shall, pursuant to valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order allow access to relevant user information in order to comply with such process and to protect our rights and property. If warranted, NYCLA may also allow access to this information in special emergencies where physical safety is at risk.


Disclaimer of Liability

NYCLA provides the NYCLA Site as a service to users, and although some of the information contained on the NYCLA Site is about legal issues, such information should not be considered legal advice. Further, due to frequent changes in the law and information provided herein from outside sources, NYCLA makes no guarantees or warranties concerning the accuracy or reliability of the information and data contained on the NYCLA Site or on the other sites to which NYCLA may provide links.
