WCCB LAW, LLP (“WCCB” or the “Firm”) is committed to protecting the privacy of Personal Information we may collect or obtain in the course of business from individuals inside or outside the organization. This Privacy Statement describes the type of Personal Information the Firm may collect, how we may use and share that information, and how you can correct or change such information.
This Privacy Statement describes the ways the Firm manages Personal Information it receives: (i) in the course of its operations involving current, prospective, and former clients (collectively, “Clients”); (ii) from visitors of the Firm’s offices, websites, or events; (iii) from prospective employees in connection with employment applications and prospective partners in association with partnership considerations; and (iv) in the course of interactions with its current, prospective, and former suppliers, vendors, subcontractors, and business partners (collectively, “Suppliers”), including in each such case on the Firm’s website located at https://www.wccblaw.com/ and any and all future websites operated by or on behalf of the Firm (the “Sites”). All individuals and entities that process Personal Information on behalf of the Firm are expected to protect Personal Information in adherence to this Privacy Statement.
THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
The types of Personal Information we may collect (directly from you or Third Parties) depend on the nature of the relationship that you have with the Firm and the requirements of applicable law.
Information the Firm collects from or on behalf of its Clients includes title, name, address, phone number, email address, business or company affiliation, username and, if you have access to any of our secure online resources, an answer to a security question, password, government identification (driver’s license, passport), credit card, and other financial information related to payments for services or goods and other details Clients may provide. In certain Client engagements, we may collect employee and other information of our Clients, as well as employee or other Personal Information of others who have a relationship or otherwise interact with our Clients (e.g., in the context of Client investments, mergers, acquisitions, or disputes).
The information the Firm collects from its Suppliers relates to the management of these relationships and the exchange of requested products and services. Such information may include title, name, address, phone number, email address, invoicing and other payment information, and agreements executed with the Firm.
If you visit a WCCB office, we may collect Personal Information about you, including, but not limited to, your title, name, address, phone number, email address, business or company affiliation, government identification (driver’s license, passport), and other details you provide.
The Firm may collect information about you from Third Party sources to supplement information provided by you. This supplemental information allows us to verify or supplement information that you have provided to the Firm and to enhance our ability to provide you with information about our business and services. The Firm’s agreements with these Third Parties typically limit how the Firm may use this supplemental information.
Clients and Suppliers that provide us with Personal Information, or whose Personal Information we obtain from Third Parties, may receive periodic emails, mailings, or other forms of electronic communication from us with information on our services, legal or other news or developments, or upcoming special events. We offer our Clients and Suppliers the option to decline these communications at no cost.
The Firm does not sell or otherwise disclose Personal Information about you, except as described in this Privacy Statement or as you explicitly consent. The Firm may share Personal Information with our service providers and consultants for our internal business purposes or to provide you with a service that you have requested. Payment information will be used and shared only to effectuate your order and may be stored by a service provider for purposes of future orders.
We reserve the right to disclose or transfer any information we have about you in the event of a proposed or actual reorganization, sale, lease, merger, joint venture, assignment, amalgamation, or any other type of acquisition, disposal, or financing of all or any portion of the Firm or of any of our assets (including should the Firm cease to operate, become insolvent, or enter into receivership or any similar event occur). Should such an event take place, we will endeavor to direct the transferee to use Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
The Firm retains Personal Information that we receive for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, to provide our services and products and to resolve disputes, establish legal defenses, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes, enforce our agreements, and comply with all applicable laws.
The security of all Personal Information provided to the Firm is important to us and we take reasonable steps designed to protect your Personal Information. The Firm maintains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Information that is received against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use.
