What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables FordFirmLaw.com features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to FordFirmLaw.com and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on FordFirmLaw.com and help us serve relevant ads to you.
When does FordFirmLaw.com place cookies?
What types of cookies does FordFirmLaw.com use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it's easier to return to FordFirmLaw.com or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by FordFirmLaw.com when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
Which FordFirmLaw.com entity is using cookies?
If you reside in the United States, Ford Firm will be responsible for your personal data provided to, or collected by or for, our Services.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit FordFirmLaw.com, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that's in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with FordFirmLaw.com faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the FordFirmLaw.com sites, and bring customized features to you through FordFirmLaw.com plugins such as our "Share" button.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, LinkedIn does not generally respond to "do not track" signals.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by FordFirmLaw.com may also set third party cookies.
FordFirmLaw.com may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.
Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:
• provide more relevant, interest-based advertising
• provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads
• help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
• detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
• improve our products
We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers unless you have given us permission to do so. You can opt-out of interest-based advertising from our customers, as well as our customers' advertising on FordFirmLaw.com based on data collected through third party sites, by adjusting your settings. Please note that opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit; it will mean that the ads you see may not be matched to your interests.
What third-party cookies does FordFirmLaw.com use?
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don't want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit wikipedia.org, www.allaboutcookies.org, or www.aboutcookies.org.
