Privacy & Cookie Policy


Introduction

Buckley Sandler LLP is a limited liability partnership organized under the laws of the District of Columbia and has offices in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and London ( “Buckley Sandler” or “we”, “our”, “us”).

This Privacy & Cookie Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes the personally identifiable and other information that Buckley Sandler collects through our website at www.buckleysandler.com and equivalent domains (the “Site”) and our use of that information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to our collection of information through the Site and our use of that information and does not apply to our offline practices.

Information may be shared by and between Buckley Sandler in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Buckley Sandler is the data controller for the processing of such information for purposes of the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding information collected through the Site and how we treat it. By visiting the Site, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

A. Personally Identifiable Information

The Site does not collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, physical address, and email address, unless you voluntarily provide us this information to subscribe to our electronic newsletters, request more information from us, or for other purposes. We may add the information you voluntarily provide to us to our databases, subscriber lists, and contact lists. As discussed in more detail below, we may also associate information provided by cookies with personally identifiable information you have voluntarily provided to us.

Please see “Contact Us; Opt-Out” below if you decide that you no longer wish to receive our materials. On rare occasions, though, we may email users important administrative information regarding the Site or services because such information may be important to your use of the Site. It may not be possible to “opt out” of receiving these types of emails.

B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

This Site automatically collects non-personally identifiable information from you when you use the Site. This information is collected through cookies and may include, without limitation, the following: your internet service provider, the type of browser and operating system that you use, and information about your Site visit, including date and time, length of stay, pages viewed, the website address, if any, from which you linked directly to the Site, the website address, if any, to which you travel from the Site, and other traffic information.

We use this non-personally identifiable information to help us improve the Site and the services we provide through it. We may do this by aggregating your non-personally identifiable information with similar information collected from other users.

C. IP Address

We also use cookies to collect the IP (Internet Protocol) address of your computer automatically when you visit the Site. We do not use your IP address to identify you personally, except that the Marketo cookies discussed below may use your IP address to associate Site usage information with personally identifiable information you have voluntarily given to us. You can restrict or block our use of cookies to collect your IP address and for other purposes as discussed below.

Cookies

A. Overview

The Site uses cookies, which are small files sent from the Site to your browser or your computer, tablet, or mobile phone (“device”) and then stored on your device’s hard drive. A cookie records on your device information relating to your internet activity, such as whether you have visited the Site before.

We use the cookies to support Site functionality. We may also use them to collect statistical information that we analyze for insights on Site usage. We do not use the cookies to collect any personally identifiable information about you with the limited exception of the Marketo cookies as discussed below.

You can use your browser’s settings to restrict or block the cookies sent by the Site. This would not prevent you from using the Site.

B. Cookies That Collect Statistical Information

We may use the following cookies to collect statistical information on Site usage:

  • Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics, a web-analytics service provided by Google Inc., to understand how visitors use the Site.

    The Google Analytics cookie collects information about, among other things, which pages are visited the most often, how people move from one link to another, and when users get error messages. The cookies do not gather any information that identifies you. We may aggregate your usage information from these cookies with information from other users on an anonymous basis to gather analytical data on Site performance and in support of potential improvements.

    In addition to using your browser settings to restrict or block this Site’s use of Google Analytics cookies, you can restrict or block their use by every website you visit. To do this, visit this Google page.
  • Marketo Inc.

    We also use a web-analytics service provided by Marketo, Inc. to understand how visitors use the Site.

    The Marketo cookie tracks IP addresses to determine which pages within the Site a user has viewed. If the IP address is unknown to us, we collect nothing other than the IP address and pages viewed. If the IP address is known to us — typically because the user provided us an email address to receive our newsletters, communicate with us, or for other purposes — the Marketo cookie associates the user’s IP address and page-viewing data with other information related to the email address. We may use the resulting information to analyze Site usage and for other internal purposes, including communications with the user. We retain the IP address from each visit to the Site for up to 90 days.

Our Use of Personally Identifiable Information

We use personally identifiable information collected by this Site to:

  • Fulfill subscriptions you request
  • Respond to your inquiries and comments
  • Send you information regarding events and developments that we think may be of interest to you
  • Administer the Site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical, and survey purposes.

Our Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information

Generally, we do not disclose personally identifiable information collected through the Site to unaffiliated third parties without your consent. However, we reserve the right to provide this information to our employees, contractors, agents, and designees so that they can perform Site-related services on our behalf.

We also may disclose such information to a third party if we believe that we are required to do so: (i) by law; (ii) to comply with legal processes or governmental requests; (iii) to prevent, investigate, detect, or prosecute criminal offenses or attacks on the technical integrity of the Site or our network; or (iv) to protect the rights, property, or safety of Buckley Sandler and its affiliates, their partners, members, and employees, users of the Site, or the public.

Buckley Sandler reserves the right to transfer any and all information we collect from users, or that we otherwise collect in connection with the Site, including, without limitation, to unaffiliated third parties, in the event of a sale or transfer of assets or portion of our business.

Where We Store Personally Identifiable Information

The personally identifiable information that you give us or that we collect from you may be transferred, stored, or processed outside the European Economic Area. By submitting this information to us, you agree to this transfer, storing, or processing. We take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Security

Buckley Sandler employs industry-standard security measures designed to protect against loss, misuse, or alteration of personally identifiable information under our control, but no security system, or system of transmitting data over the internet, is 100% secure. For that reason, we do not guarantee the absolute security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site.

Links to Other Web Sites

The Site may contain links to websites owned by third parties. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties, and any information you disclose on their sites is not subject to this Privacy Policy. You should consult the privacy policies of each website you visit. A link on this Site to one owned by a third party does not constitute endorsement, approval, association, sponsorship, or affiliation with the linked site unless specifically stated.

Children Under 13

The Site is not directed to children under 13 years of age, from whom we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information. We ask that users younger than 13 not provide any personally identifiable information while using the Site.

Changes to Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update, revise, or otherwise change this Privacy Policy at any time, and any changes to the Privacy Policy will be effective upon posting. Use of the Site constitutes acceptance of the currently posted Privacy Policy, and users should review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure that they are aware of its terms.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information

You may request a copy of the information that we hold about you by emailing info@buckleysandler.com. We may charge a fee of £10 (or U.S. dollar equivalent) toward the costs we incur in providing you with the information.

Contact Us; Opt-Out

If you would like to update or otherwise change the personally identifiable information you have provided to us, or if you no longer wish to receive materials from us or want your personally identifiable information removed from our databases, please contact us at info@buckleysandler.com. Alternatively, when you receive materials from us by email, you may make use of any other “opt out” instructions we provide to stop receiving materials from us.
