PRIVACY POLICY

 

Your privacy is important to us. The Law Offices of Sehar Aijaz, PLLC (the “Firm” or “we/us”) has adopted this privacy policy to protect your confidential and “Personal Information” (information that directly or indirectly identifies individuals who may be potential clients, clients, agents, lawyers or others inside or outside the Firm and includes but is not limited to name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.).

 

It has always been and remains the policy of the Firm to comply with the rules of professional conduct, which impose a duty upon lawyers to preserve and protect confidential client information.

 

1. When and how we collect personal information

 

We collect Personal Information about you when you voluntarily choose to disclose such information to us, directly or indirectly through a representative. For example, you may disclose Personal Information to us when you submit information by mail, telephone, or electronically, when you sign up for newsletters, alerts, legal insights, and other marketing communications, or when you sign up to attend an event or program hosted or sponsored by us in person or online.

 

We may also collect Personal Information about you from another source, for example, from a business associate of yours, your representative, an expert or a publically available source. If you provide Personal Information to us about someone else (such as one of your employees or business associate), you acknowledge that you are authorized to disclose that information to us and that, without taking any further steps, we may collect, use, store and disclose that Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy as if it were disclosed to us directly by such other person.

 

We do not direct any of our websites to children or individuals under eighteen (18) years of age. Individuals under eighteen (18) should consult with their parent or guardian about the use of this website.

 

2.  Why we use or process Personal Information

 

We only use your Personal Information for a legal and legitimate interest, such as:

 

Legal Services: We will use and process your Personal Information for providing legal services, promoting and marketing our legal services, assisting with managing, enhancing and improving our legal services, communicating with you about those legal services, and complying with our legal and ethical obligations related to those legal services.

 

Marketing: We may process some of your Personal Information for direct marketing based on your consent, including to send you newsletters, client alerts and information we think may interest you. You have the option to withdraw your consent at any time.

Your Personal Information may also be collected in our relationship management system when you register online to receive legal updates, or when we otherwise receive your contact details. You can update or request, however, to have your data removed from our relationship management at any time by visiting our preferences page. You also will be provided with the option to unsubscribe or opt-out from receiving further marketing communications by following the instructions at the bottom of each communication.

 

Contract performance: We may use or process Personal Information in connection with pre-contract activities and discussion with you, and to perform a contract that we have with you.

 

Legal obligations: We will use or process Personal Information as necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject. This includes using or processing personal information for defense of claims against us and satisfying any government reporting obligations and requests.

 

Other legitimate interests: We will process your Personal Information for any of our other legitimate interests not described above. These include analyzing use of our website or services, tailoring website and news content, setting preferences in our website or electronic mailings, improving our websites, offering and managing programs and events, fulfilling our obligations to our clients and others, and managing our client and vendor relationships.

 

3.  How and where we disclose Personal Information

 

We will not sell, trade, or rent your Personal Information.

 

We market and provide legal services in the United States of America. Therefore, we operate our websites from the United States of America and store the information we collect through our websites in the United States of America.

 

We will also disclose your Personal Information to third party service providers that perform services for us and who are obligated to secure the information, such as data hosting or software or technology consultants, accountants, special consultants, outsourced service providers, continuing legal education providers, information technology suppliers, analytics providers, mailing providers, joint marketing or event providers, and security providers. These service providers may be located anywhere in the world.

 

We will also disclose your Personal Information as required by a court order or any other legal or regulatory requirement, including in response to requests from public and government authorities outside your country of residence or to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, or that of you or others anywhere in the world.

 

4.  Our efforts to protect Personal Information

 

We take reasonable measures to protect Personal Information from misuse, interference, and unauthorized loss, access, modification or disclosure. We undertake industry-standard data protection practices, including by deploying a variety of commercially available software and hardware security tools. We will take such measures with respect to your Personal Information using security measures that we use for Personal Information of others, and we will do so in compliance with all applicable data protection laws and our professional secrecy and ethical obligations. Unfortunately, despite such measures, no data transmission over the Internet and no database or other depository of information can be one hundred percent secure. As a result, while we will strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any of your Personal Information. We will not be and are not liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission, networks that we do not control, or unauthorized acts of third parties.

 

5.  How long we keep personal information

 

We will keep your Personal Information until such time as we no longer expect to need to use it for any legal and legitimate purpose and otherwise in accordance with all applicable laws. At the appropriate time, we will take reasonable steps to destroy your Personal Information or ensure that your Personal Information is de-identified, except where we need to retain such information to satisfy legal and professional ethical obligations.

 

6.  Your rights with regard to your Personal Information

 

Except as otherwise expressly discussed in this Privacy Policy, this policy only addresses our use and disclosure of Personal Information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your Personal Information to third parties, including any third party website linked from any of our websites, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of those third parties. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose any Personal Information to such third parties.

 

Our other obligations to you as our client, if applicable, are not addressed by this Privacy Policy. Those obligations are described in our terms of engagement or otherwise arise as a result of applicable law or ethics.

 

Subject to local law, you may have certain rights regarding Personal Information we have collected about you. Such rights might include the right to (a) know what Personal Information we have collected about you, (b) update or correct such information if you believe there is an inaccuracy, (c) restrict the processing of your Personal Information, (d) request deletion of your Personal Information, (e) object to our use of your Personal Information, or (f) request transmission of your Personal Information to another data controller. If you would like to exercise any of these rights provided under local law, please send us an email at s.aijaz@seharlaw.com.

 

If you would like to make a complaint about how we handled your Personal Information, or make a complaint about a breach of data protection laws, please send us an email at s.aijaz@seharlaw.com. Complaints will be investigated and the outcome of the investigation will be communicated to you after the complaint is made in accordance with applicable law. You may have a right in some locations to file a complaint with your local data protection authority.
