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 Global Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”) describes the type of Personal Information WCCB 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 WCCB manages Personal Information it receives: (i) in the course of its operations involving current, prospective, and former clients (collectively, “Clients”); (ii) from visitors of WCCB 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 WCCB’s website located at https://www.wccblaw.com/ and any and all future websites operated by or on behalf of WCCB (the “Sites”). All individuals and entities that process Personal Information on behalf of WCCB 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 WCCB and the requirements of applicable law.
Information WCCB 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 WCCB 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 WCCB.
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.
WCCB 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 WCCB and to enhance our ability to provide you with information about our business and services. WCCB’ agreements with these Third Parties typically limit how WCCB 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.
WCCB may provide websites and online resources that are designed to be used on mobile computing devices. Mobile versions of WCCB Sites may require that users log in with a user name and password. In such cases, information about use of each mobile version of the Sites may be associated with user accounts. In addition, WCCB may enable individuals to download an application, widget, or other tools that can be used on mobile or other computing devices. Some of these tools may store information on mobile or other devices. These tools may transmit Personal Information to WCCB to enable Data Subjects to access user accounts and to enable WCCB to track use of these tools. Some of these tools may enable users to email reports and other information from the tool. WCCB may use Personal Information or non-identifiable information transmitted to us to enhance these tools, to develop new tools, for quality improvement, and as otherwise described in this Privacy Statement or in other notices WCCB provides.
OPT OUT CHOICES
You have the right to opt-out of certain uses and disclosures of your Personal Information, as set out in this Privacy Statement.
Where you have consented to WCCB’s Processing of your Personal Information, subject to applicable legal and ethical obligations that may apply to us and to our lawful ability to enforce our rights or your obligations to us, you may withdraw that consent at any time and opt-out. Additionally, before we use Personal Information for any new purpose not originally authorized by you, we will provide information regarding the new purpose and give you the opportunity to opt-in to such secondary uses.
An “Unsubscribe” button will be provided at the top or bottom of each email marketing communication sent by WCCB, so that you may opt out of further email communications. However, we will continue to send transaction-related emails regarding our relationship and the services you have requested.
WCCB does not sell or otherwise disclose Personal Information about you, except as described in this Privacy Statement or as you explicitly consent. WCCB 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 WCCB or of any of our assets (including should WCCB cease to trade, 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.
WCCB 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 WCCB is important to us and we take reasonable steps designed to protect your Personal Information. WCCB 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.
