3. How Information Is Collected.

In general, you are not required to provide any personal information in order to consult our Site. However, you may elect to contact us by completing the form provided on the “Contact Us” page of the Site, in which case we ask you to provide your name and email address, and to submit specific questions to us. You may also elect to contact us voluntarily by telephone or e-mail. All personal data processed by us is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which they were collected.

When using the Site for mere information purposes, we may also collect the personal data that your web browser transmits to our server, including your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and data relating to your operating system and web browser. We use this data to ensure the security and successful navigation on the Site, and to compile statistical data on the use of our Site.

During the course of an engagement, or when consideration is being given to such an engagement, we may collect and process personal, financial or related data about our clients, prospective clients, their affiliates or the relevant members of their personnel. In addition, Jackson Walker may assemble and maintain information relating to the legal services provided. The information that Jackson Walker may assemble and maintain may be obtained from the client, generated as a result of the services provided, or received from third parties.

We may also collect personal information from you when you attend a seminar or other event provided by us, when you visit, make an inquiry or submit an application for employment to us, including through the Site or otherwise.

We may also collect information from publicly-accessible sources (such as government databases or electronic data resources), directly from a third party (such as our clients or other law firms, our service providers, or marketing partners) or from third parties with your consent.

In addition, if you or a third party sends Jackson Walker a comment, message or other communication (such as, by way of example only, email, letter, fax, phone call, or voice message) about you or your activities on or through the Site, then Jackson Walker may collect any personal or non-personal information provided therein or therewith.

Finally, Jackson Walker might use various tracking, data aggregation and/or data analysis technologies, including, for example, the following:

  • Cookies, which are small data files (e.g., text files) stored on the browser or device you use to view a website or message. They may help store user preferences and activity, and may allow a website to recognize a particular browser or device. There are several types of cookies, including, for example, browser cookies, session cookies, and persistent cookies. Cookies may record information you access on one page of a website to simplify subsequent interaction with that website, or to help streamline your transactions on related pages of that website. Most major browsers are set up so that they will initially accept cookies, but you might be able to adjust your browser’s or device’s preferences to issue you an alert when a cookie is downloaded, or to block, reject, disable, delete or manage the use of some or all cookies on your browser or device.
  • Flash cookies, which are cookies written using Adobe Flash, and which may be permanently stored on your device. Like regular cookies, Flash cookies may help store user preferences and activity, and may allow a website to recognize a particular browser or device. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings that are used for regular cookies.
  • Retargeting pixels, which are cookie-based technologies that might follow you across the web.
  • Web beacons, which are pieces of code embedded in a website or email to monitor your activity on the website or your opening of the email, and which can pass along information such as the IP address of the computer or device you use to view the website or open the email, the URL page on which the web beacon is located, the type of browser that was used to access the website, and previously set cookie values. Web beacons are sometimes used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. Disabling your computer’s, device’s or browser’s cookies or other tracking technology features may prevent some web beacons from tracking or recording certain information about your activities.
  • Tokens, which are digital objects or pieces of code that enable the tracking of emails and other electronic communications, online activities and devices (such as, for example, tracking tokens, device tokens), or that authenticate the identity of individuals or devices authorized to access certain secured information (such as, for example, access tokens). Disabling your computer’s, device’s or browser’s cookies or other tracking technology features may prevent some tokens from tracking certain information about your activities.
  • Scripts, which are pieces of code embedded in a website to define how the website behaves in response to certain key or click requests sent by the user. Scripts are sometimes used to collect information about the user’s interactions with the website, such as the links the user clicks on. Scripts are often times temporarily downloaded to the user’s computer or device from the website server, active only while the user is connected to the Site, and deactivated or deleted when the user disconnects from the Site.
  • Analytic tools and services, which are sometimes offered by third parties, and which track, measure and/or generate information about a website’s or program’s traffic, sales, audience and similar information, and which may be used for various reasons, such as, for example, statistical research, marketing research, and content ratings research, and conversion tracking.
  • Other third-party data tracking or analytic technologies (e.g., deep linking, eTags, device fingerprinting or cross-device tracking).

Please be advised that if you choose to block, reject, disable, delete or change the management settings for any or all of the aforementioned technologies and/or other tracking, data aggregation and data analysis technologies, then certain areas of the Site might not function properly.

By visiting, accessing, registering with or using the Site, you acknowledge and agree in each instance that you are giving Jackson Walker permission to monitor or otherwise track your activities on the Site, and that Jackson Walker may use the aforementioned technologies and/or other tracking, data aggregation and data analysis technologies.

4. Use Of Information Collected.

Jackson Walker may use the personal and/or non-personal information it collects from you through the Site in a variety of ways, such as, for example, to:

  • Respond to your requests;
  • For the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in relation to services being provided to our clients and/or payments for such services;
  • To promote our services, including delivery of publications or information regarding events;
  • Facilitate your movement through or use of the Site;

  • With your consent;
  • In relation to our recruitment and employment initiatives;
  • To protect or enforce Jackson Walker’s respective rights and properties; and/or
  • Protect or enforce the rights and properties of others (which may include you).

Jackson Walker reserves the right to use your personal and non-personal information when:

  • Required by applicable law, court order or other governmental authority (including, without limitation and by way of example only, in response to a subpoena or other legal process); or
  • Jackson Walker believes in good faith that such use is otherwise necessary or advisable (including, without limitation and by way of example only, to investigate, prevent, or take legal action against someone who may be causing injury to, interfering with, or threatening the rights, obligations or properties of Jackson Walker, a user of the Site which may include you or anyone else who may be harmed by such activities or to further Jackson Walker’s legitimate business interests).

5. Sharing Of Information Collected.

We will not sell any of your personal information to any outside organization. We only disclose your personal information to third parties as is reasonably necessary to carry out the permitted uses described in this Privacy Policy.

For example, Jackson Walker may share your personal information with the following:

  • Jackson Walker’s employees, agents, administrators and sub-contractors who assist us in running our business;
  • Service providers and other third parties engaged in the course of services we provide to our clients, including local counsel, technology service providers such as data room management or e-discovery providers, mediators or other similar third parties.
  • Third parties involved in hosting, organizing or providing services for events or seminars;
  • Third parties we use to help us run our business, such as benefits administrators, marketing agencies, website hosts, technical and customer support contractors or other service providers who are required to keep personal information confidential and are prohibited from using it for any purpose other than providing contracted-for-services on our behalf.
  • Law enforcement or other governmental entities in response to what Jackson Walker believes to be an allegation or suspicion of illegal activity, a request relating to a civil or criminal investigation, an allegation or suspicion of illegal activity, a subpoena, a court order, or any other activity that may expose Jackson Walker to liability if it does not act or comply;
  • Any third parties who Jackson Walker believes are necessary to help or allow Jackson Walker to protect and enforce its rights and properties, including, without limitation, to enforce its rights under Jackson Walker’s Terms of Use or any other agreements Jackson Walker has with you, and to protect and enforce its intellectual property rights; and/or
  • Any third parties who Jackson Walker believes are necessary to help or allow Jackson Walker to protect the rights and properties of others (which may include you), assuming that Jackson Walker believes it has an obligation to do so.
  • Our successors in the event of a sale, merger acquisition or similar transaction affecting the relevant portion of our business.

Jackson Walker does not limit the ways in which it might use or share non-personal information – and Jackson Walker reserves the unencumbered right, but not the obligation, to use or share non-personal information – because non-personal information does not identify you.

6. Data Retention.

Jackson Walker may retain your personal information and non-personal information for as long as it is reasonably necessary for a legitimate business purpose, such as to provide you with services. We will, for example, retain your personal information where required for us to assert or defend against legal claims until the end of the relevant retention period or until the claims in question have been settled.

Jackson Walker may dispose of or delete personal information or non-personal information at any time, except as set forth in any other agreement or document executed by both you and Jackson Walker concerning the same or as required by law.

The Site and/or any communications sent through or as a function of the Site might contain links to third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers and/or applications. Third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers and/or applications might also contain links to the Site.

In addition, you might have the opportunity to access the Site using your online user accounts with certain third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers or applications, which might be subject to separate privacy policies pertaining to those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers or applications. Jackson Walker might also collect information from those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers or applications (such as, for example, your name, gender, date of birth and personal interests, when you “like” or click links provided by or through those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, or applications and other information available through your online account or page with those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers or applications).

Moreover, Jackson Walker might permit third parties to use their own tracking, data aggregation and/or data analysis technologies like the ones described above (e.g., third-party cookies).

You should carefully review the relevant terms of use and privacy policies associated with third party websites, networks, platforms, servers and applications.
