Personal Information Collection and Use
In general, you can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we ask for personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, company, e-mail address, phone number, and address (“Personal Information”). We request this information in order to correspond with you, to provide you with a subscription to a newsletter or publication, to notify you about events, or otherwise to respond to your requests or provide you with information that we consider may be of interest to you. Where applicable, we will differentiate between personal data fields that are optional and those that are mandatory to obtain the requested information.
If you receive a marketing e-mail from S&C’s, you will be provided with an automated way to opt out (unsubscribe) from that particular communication or from all marketing e-mails sent by our firm. Please follow the instructions on the e-mail you received. If you have received unwanted e-mail from our firm, please forward a copy of that e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that if you reply to a S&C’s address in one of our marketing e-mails or otherwise send a communication to us, your communication will not create a lawyer-client relationship with us. Do not send us any information that you or anyone else considers to be confidential or secret unless we have first agreed to be your lawyers in that matter. Any information you send us before we agree to be your lawyers cannot be protected from disclosure.
Any Personal Information you provide, including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of S&C, other than in the event of a merger or sale of the firm, in which case the purchaser or successor entity shall receive this information.
Notwithstanding anything stated above, we may in limited circumstances share Personal Information with government authorities or others as required to protect the interests of the firm or others, as necessary in connection with the sale or transfer of all or a portion of the business, or as required by applicable law or court order.
International Data Transfers
This website are hosted on our web servers in the United States. If you are located in a non-US jurisdiction, your provision of Personal Information or other access to our website constitutes your transfer of such data to the United States, a jurisdiction that may not provide a level of data protection equivalent to the laws in your home country.
Remember the Risks Whenever You Use the Internet
While we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to S&C.
Please contact those vendors and others directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.
