Generally, you may visit this website without revealing any information about yourself. However, there are times when GGM and/or this website may ask for identifiable information from you, such as your name, company, e-mail address, phone number, and address.

Internet cookies can save data about individual users, such as the user’s name, password, user-name, screen preferences, the pages of a website viewed by the user, and the information viewed or clicked by the user.

  1. Also, on the contact screen (at the bottom, as a disclaimer), we think we should have something along these lines:  Please be aware that GGM cannot guarantee that your communication with the firm by means of this website will remain free from interception by third-parties.  GGM does not agree to represent you simply because you send GGM an email.  An attorney-client relationship is NOT created simply by sending GGM an email, and you should not send any sensitive, confidential or private information to GGM before such a relationship is created. If you choose to send GGM any sensitive, confidential or private information to GGM before such a relationship is created, you do so at your own risk and GGM shall not be liable for any of the consequences of your doing so. Please be advised that GGM cannot represent you until we can confirm that doing so will not create a conflict of interest.  For these reasons, please do not use GGM’s “contact form” to send any confidential or sensitive information to the firm.
