Sideman & Bancroft LLP is committed to protecting the privacy of the users (“you”, “user”) of the website (the “Site”), blogs, alerts, newsletters, social media sites or programs and other services provided on or through the Internet, in person, or through telephone or electronic communications (individually and collectively the “Service”).
By using this Site or receiving the Service, you agree to our use of your information in the manner specified below.
Information We May Collect
“Personal Information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a physical address, a phone number or an email address. In general, you can visit the Site or receive the Service without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. However, in order to access certain information, services or features on the Site, we may ask you to provide Personal Information. For example, we will collect certain Personal Information if you choose to register for one of our seminars, sign up for our email alerts or send questions, requests or comments to us via email.
How We May Use Your Information
If you provide us with Personal Information, we will retain and use that information for certain limited purposes. For example, we will use your Personal Information to fulfill or respond to any requests for services or information that you make, such as contacting you to confirm your seminar registration and sending you any related materials, answering your questions, sending any postal mail that you may request or sending email alerts to you if you sign up to receive them. We may also use Personal Information to ensure compliance with our policies and applicable law.
In addition, we may send you periodic communications by email or regular mail that we believe will be of interest to you, such as our email alerts or news or other information related to the Site or to Sideman & Bancroft LLP. If you wish to opt out of receiving our email alerts or other emails from us at any time, please let us know so that we can remove you from our distribution list.
Like many websites, our server logs also capture information regarding your operating system, browser software, IP (Internet Protocol) address, and the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through and from our website, including date and time. We may use this information to improve the services we provide through our website, to monitor and improve the performance of our servers, to administer our website, and to protect and defend our rights.
With Whom We May Share And Disclose Your Information
We may sometimes use other businesses to perform certain services for us, such as maintaining the Site and our mailing lists, sending postal mail (if necessary) and providing marketing assistance and data analysis. We may provide Personal Information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties. Sideman & Bancroft LLP will take reasonable steps to help ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on Sideman & Bancroft LLP’s behalf.
From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they click on. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Site are most popular and to enhance the Site for visitors. We may aggregate this information in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential business partners or other third parties, or in response to a government request. We may also aggregate preferences information that we collect from visitors for the same purposes. However, please be assured that this aggregated data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Site.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that our Site is accessed. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the big computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
It is not our practice to link the information we record using cookies or other tracking technologies to any Personal Information you submit while on the Site and while using the Service.

Please assist us to make sure the data we hold about you is accurate by contacting us to let us know of any changes to your personal data or to ask us to remove your personal data from our systems. Our contact information is listed below.
If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us on a going-forward basis, you may opt-out by following the unsubscribe instructions in any such message or by contacting us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At any time, you have the right to withdraw your consent and request access to your personal information.

Legal Basis for Processing Your Personal Information
The majority of the personal data collected from this Site is provided by you voluntarily such as when you sign up to join a mailing list or register for an event and is therefore collected with your permission . The remaining personal information is collected for Sideman & Bancroft LLP’s legitimate purpose, including providing legal services to you, monitoring and improving the quality of the service and protect and defend our rights or that of our clients and other users of our Site or of the Service.
We intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. When you transmit Personal Information from your computer to our servers, your information is protected by both a “firewall” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network) and industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information.
We collect and retain personal information for as long as necessary to perform the purposes in this Privacy Notice unless a longer retention period is required under applicable law or permitted by the user. Your information may be retained for longer periods if there are valid legal grounds, for example if required by law or court order or to defend or pursue legal claims.
