USE OF INFORMATION

We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Robert Lee & Associates, LLP never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties.

But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
