How do we collect Personal Information?

When you provide it to us. In certain sections on our Website or Services, we may provide online forms in which you can input Personal Information such as your name and email address in order to request information, subscribe to our publications, or for other purposes indicated on our Website or Services.

When you access our Website. Our Services may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files when you use our Services.  We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data for purposes of system administration, to understand how our visitors use our Services. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. For instance, when you request Web pages from the Website, our computers log your IP address.

We also collect click-stream data when you request pages from the Website. Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. We also monitor other tracking-related information.  This data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Services, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in, particular kinds of content, and the like.  We use this information to update our Services and ensure that we are meeting the needs of our visitors.

Cookies. Our Services may use cookies, web beacons and similar tracking technologies. These technologies are widely used for security, to learn about and improve upon how users navigate a website or Services or to enable certain features. Cookies are small data files that are transferred to your hard drive when your browser settings permit the acceptance of cookies. Similar technologies, such as web beacons or pixel tags function through the use of small files, such as a GIF or PNG, which are opened on a page or in an email. The request for these files from a server reveals certain information, such as your browser type, IP address, and other information. To learn more about cookies and similar tracking technologies, and how they can affect your privacy, visit allaboutcookies.org.

By tracking how and when you use our Services, these technologies help us determine which features and content on our Services are most important to our visitors. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can turn off cookies using your browser’s settings menu; however, this may eliminate our ability to provide you with some of the features or functionality you would otherwise experience by utilizing our Services.

We do not respond to “do-not-track” signals from web browsers or other sources.

With whom may we share your Personal Information?

We may share Personal Information with employees and contractors of our Firm, with third parties who provide certain services on our behalf, with selected third-party organizations with whom we may collaborate on various activities or events, or in the other circumstances noted below. For example, we may share certain Personal Information we collect with third parties such as providers of data hosting or processing services, email services, or other service providers (for example if we have a third party send notification of firm publications, news or events we think may be of interest to you).

We may also share Personal Information we possess in the event our Firm undergoes a corporate transaction, such as a merger with another firm, or in the event of a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of our Firm, or a dissolution of our Firm. To the extent permitted by applicable laws, we may share Personal Information if we need to protect the interests of B&L, our clients, property, or the public.

Third Party Sites and Services

This Privacy Policy does not address the information practices of any third party, unless as specified otherwise. Please note, the inclusion of a link on our Services to a third party’s service does not imply endorsement of the third party’s data handling practices, and does not imply that the third party’s practices are covered by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these entities.
