We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of visitors to our website and this policy explains how Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson LLP ("Fried Frank") or ("we") may collect and use information about you through our website. This policy may vary from time to time so please check it regularly. Any significant changes to this policy will be clearly indicated on our home page.
Submitting your contact details
Various forms on our site invite you to submit your contact details and other information about yourself or your organization, or if you send us emails which will, of course, also identify you.
How we use this information
In each case, the purpose for which you are invited to give us information is clear and we also indicate which of the requested information is essential for the relevant purpose and which is optional; fields for essential information are marked with an asterisk. We will not use your information for purposes that are not clear when you provide your details, and will not disclose it outside Fried Frank, except in very limited circumstances, for example, with your agreement or where we are legally obliged to do so.
We monitor visits to our website by recording the IP address (a unique number which identifies your computer and its location on the internet) of visitors to our site. This is principally so that we can make sure that it is easy to navigate, identify the areas that are of particular interest to visitors and generally improve the site and our services. The information that we collect in this process will not identify you as an individual. We do not seek to identify individual visitors unless they volunteer their contact details through one of the forms on our site. In some circumstances our records will identify organizations visiting our site and we may use that information in managing our relationship with those organizations, for example, in considering how to develop the services that we offer them.
Transfer of information abroad and disclosure to third parties
Fried Frank operates as a single global law firm, but it works through various local legal entities, which are all ultimately controlled by the same group of partners. When you provide information through the site you will be providing it to Fried Frank as a whole, and should be aware that it may be accessed from countries whose laws provide various levels of protection for personal data, not always equivalent to the level of protection that may be provided in your own country.
We use up-to-date data storage and security techniques to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification or unlawful destruction or accidental loss. All our employees [and any third parties we engage to process your personal information] are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your information.
