Max Blitt stores confidential client data on, and communicates over servers owned by third parties and located in the United States of America, and possibly other places. We do this to reduce our costs, and to provide convenient access to your lawyer and your electronic files. The third party owners of these servers have been reported as participants in a program of the US government’s National Security Agency for the collection of information about non-US citizens. This means that your confidential information will be available to law enforcement agencies of the US federal government, and may be accessed, stored indefinitely, and used by those agencies without notice to you. This includes documents, emails, video conferences, and anything else that can conceivably be stored on or transmitted through these third party servers. By agreeing to these terms, you consent to your information being stored on third party servers in the United States of America.
