• you agree to be legally bound by this Policy; and
• you agree that Wood and Company may collect, use and disclose certain information in accordance with this Policy.
If you do not accept these terms, please do not use this Site and/or Our Social Media. We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time and from time to time without prior notice to you. You should check this Policy, available through a link on all of the Site’s pages, each time you use the Site and/or Our Social Media to determine if any changes have been made.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We gather information in two ways. The first way is when you send us your information directly, such as by making an inquiry through e-mail, the contact form on the Site or through Our Social Media or by submitting your e-mail address to receive our newsletters and blog posts. The second way is by using technology to collect information regarding your use of the Site.
We collect both personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information refers to information that identifies you directly, such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. We collect personally identifiable information only when you voluntarily provide it to us. We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. In addition, unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials or new services.
Non-personally identifiable information refers to information that does not identify you personally, which we use to track your use of the Site. For instance, we may collect information about your computer’s IP address, what type of web browser you use, and what pages of the Site you visit to understand how our Site is being used.
Your use of this Site and/or Our Social Media is not an invitation to enter into and does not create a client/contractor relationship. Please do not send us confidential information without receiving permission to do so from a staff member. Otherwise, the information that you convey to Wood and Company may no longer be deemed confidential Information Collection
Use, Sharing and Security
Wood and Company is committed to protecting the privacy and accuracy of your confidential information to the extent possible, subject to provisions of state and federal law. Other than as required by laws that guarantee public access to certain types of information, or in response to subpoenas or other legal instruments that authorize access, Wood and Company does not share personally identifiable information with third parties other than carefully selected service providers that it engages including website hosting; accounting, marketing or legal services; those who support our technology infrastructure; and other organizations that we may contract with to provide specific services that you have requested.
In order to protect your information from improper disclosure, we use reasonable efforts to maintain a secure operating environment. Once received, we limit access of your information to those employees with a legitimate business need to review them and to organizations that we may have contracted with to provide specific services to you. We are careful to dispose of your information properly so that third parties will not be able to access it including destroying, erasing or making unreadable the information prior to disposal.
While we are committed to protecting your privacy, please be aware that no transaction or communication over the Internet can be completely secure. Any information you send us through the Site, e-mail, Our Social Media or any other online means of communication is not secure and is done at your own risk.
