The Information We Collect and How We Use It
Paul Hastings collects two types of information about visitors to the Website.
(1) Personally identifying information.
For purposes of this Policy, “personally identifying information” means information that identifies you, such as your name, address, phone number, fax number or email address. You are not required to provide personally identifying information to visit our Website, but you may choose to provide personally identifying information in order to receive publications or to utilize other features of our website. We use your personally identifying information to respond to your inquiries and to send you information that you request. If you no longer wish to receive publications to which you previously subscribed, you may opt-out of future publications by following the directions below.
(2) Non-personally identifying information.
If you contact us by email or otherwise through the Website, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and we may use your email address or other information you provide in your message to respond to you. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT SUBMISSION OF AN EMAIL TO PAUL HASTINGS OR TO ANY PAUL HASTINGS ATTORNEY OR ANY OTHER COMMUNICATION THROUGH THE WEBSITE DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT OR OTHER PRIVILEGED OR CONFIDENTIAL RELATIONSHIP. THEREFORE, IF YOU DISCLOSE INFORMATION IN THIS MANNER, THERE IS NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE, CONFIDENTIALITY OR ANY OTHER PROTECTION THAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH INFORMATION, AND WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE OR DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION THAT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED TO PAUL HASTINGS OR ITS ATTORNEYS. ACCORDINGLY, DO NOT DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION THAT YOU WISH TO REMAIN PRIVATE OR CONFIDENTIAL.
To Whom We Disclose the Information
As noted above, submission of information to us through the Website does not create an attorney-client relationship or any other relationship with Paul Hastings or any Paul Hastings attorney. Nevertheless, we will not sell or transfer your personally identifying information to unaffiliated third parties for marketing purposes, but we reserve the right to use and disclose information you provide in any other way, at our sole discretion.
