This Policy is effective as of January 1, 2018.
KDLAW may update this Policy from time to time. Any changes to this Policy will be posted below for a period of thirty (30) days and will be effective when posted. The changes will also be immediately incorporated into this Policy. Your continued use of the Site after any changes are made to this Policy constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If any of the changes are unacceptable to you, you should cease using the Site. If any changes to this Policy affect how KDLAW treats or handles personally identifiable information already provided by you to KDLAW, we will notify you by email (if KDLAW has a valid email address to use) and give you thirty (30) days to opt in to the changes as they pertain to your information.
Collection and Use of Information
You can generally visit the Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is generally defined as information that may be able to identify you such as, but not limited to, name, address, IP address, telephone number, email address, age, etc.
There are areas on the Site where you may be asked to provide KDLAW with PII. For example, PII such as name, employer, address, IP address, phone number and email address may be collected from you when you:
— Register for KDLAW meetings or events;
– Contact KDLAW with questions or comments; and/or
– Sign up for KDLAW newsletters or client alerts.
KDLAW may use your PII to:
– Schedule/administer meetings and events;
– Respond to questions or comments;
– Deliver services through the Site;
– Send you KDLAW newsletters and other client alerts or updates;
– Improve the content and general administration of the Site; and/or
– Perform internal operations including, but not limited to, conduct fraud prevention, troubleshoot computer viruses or other harmful elements, and conduct data analysis.
Sharing of PII and Other Information
Except as noted herein, KDLAW does not sell or share your PII with any person or entity outside of KDLAW. KDLAW does not share collected PII with any person or entity for direct marketing purposes. KDLAW may share collected PII with its email vendor for such vendor to send out emails on KDLAW’s behalf. Our email vendor may collect some of this PII directly through the Site and will comply with KDLAW’s “Do Not Track” policy referenced below. KDLAW will disclose your PII if it reasonably believes it is required to do so by law or in cooperation with a governmental or law enforcement investigation. KDLAW may also share PII or other information to avoid imminent physical harm to any person or harm to any KDLAW property.
KDLAW may share your PII with a third party if KDLAW’s ownership status changes, such as it being acquired. WE DO NOT DISCLOSE ANY PII ABOUT OUR CLIENTS OR FORMER CLIENTS TO ANYONE, EXCEPT AS PERMITTED BY LAW AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE ETHICAL RULES. We do not disclose any PII about current or former clients obtained during the course of representation of those clients, except as expressly or impliedly authorized by those clients to enable us to effectuate the purpose of our representation or as required or permitted by law or applicable provisions of codes of professional responsibility or ethical rules governing our conduct as lawyers. Other than what is referenced above, the PII collected from you is not shared with nor sold to any person or entity outside of KDLAW.
Review of Collected PII/Your Choices
If you would like to review, edit or delete any of the PII KDLAW collected from you, or wish KDLAW to cease using your PII in the manners specified in this Policy, please contact KDLAW at email@example.com. Please note that KDLAW will do its best to accommodate your request, but KDLAW cannot guarantee it can remove all PII from the specified uses. Therefore, please be as specific as possible in your request. If the request relates to information that KDLAW needs to make the Site function properly for you, you may not be able to use the Site properly moving forward.
Please note that KDLAW reserves the right to maintain proper business records as required by law, or for other legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law, even if such records contain your PII. If you would like to opt out of receiving further promotional emails from KDLAW, please send KDLAW a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
KDLAW does not knowingly collect any information from minors, nor is the Site directed at or intended for minors. If a minor uploads/posts information to the Site that is publicly available, and the minor subsequently wants that same information deleted, the minor has a right to request that said information be removed from public viewing. Please email us at email@example.com to make the request. Please note that any removal of content by KDLAW does not ensure or guarantee complete or comprehensive removal of the content in all places. The content may have been shared or reposted by other parties, or federal or state law may require maintenance of the content or information.
Response to “Do Not Track” Requests/Signals
KDLAW does not respond to nor recognizes “do not track” or similar requests.
Data Security and Retention
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your professional needs and to comply with professional guidelines or requirements of law. In order to guard your PII, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards. The Site uses, implements and maintains industry standard technological security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect PII from unauthorized loss, modification, use access or disclosure both in storage/rest and in transmission. The Site uses SSL encryption to help prevent unauthorized access to PII transmitted to the Site.
While KDLAW takes the issue of protecting your PII seriously, you should exercise discretion in what information you disclose and/or transmit to the Site. KDLAW cannot guarantee that information sent over the Internet is fully secure, and therefore the transmitted information may be intercepted by others before it reaches KDLAW. If you are concerned about sending information to KDLAW over the Internet, please send the information by mail or call us to make other arrangements. KDLAW is not responsible for the security of information sent over the Internet. KDLAW retains collected information for a reasonable amount of time to fulfill the stated purpose for why the information was collected. KDLAW will also retain collected information connected to business records for periods of time required by law. If KDLAW determines that collected information is no longer needed, it will delete such information. Our collection times will be consistent with applicable law.
The Site is intended for individuals 18 years of age and older located in the United States. The Site is not directed at, marketed to, nor intended for, children under 13 years of age. KDLAW does not knowingly collect any information, including PII, from children under 13 years of age. If KDLAW learns that any information was provided through the Site by a person younger than 13 years of age, KDLAW will delete the information immediately. KDLAW will not use any minor’s PII to market or advertise certain products or services deemed harmful to children nor will KDLAW disclose any minor’s PII if it has actual knowledge that the minor’s PII will be used for marketing or advertising harmful products or services.
The Site is meant for individuals within the United States. KDLAW only knowingly collects information from individuals within the United States. If you provide information to KDLAW from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk. If you are outside of the United States, you are responsible for complying with any local laws regarding use of the Site, and related data collection. This Policy only addresses data collection from individuals within the United States.
