Special Note About Children

Our Website is a general audience site that is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information (defined below) from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not provide any information about yourself on this Website or use any of the interactive or public comment features of this Website.

What Information We Collect 

The information we collect on our Website generally falls into the following two categories: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.

  • Personal Information: This refers to information that lets us specifically identify who you are as well as information that may not be personally identifiable standing alone (for example, your age), but which may become personally identifiable when combined with Personal Information (for example, your age combined with your name).
  • Non-Personal Information: This refers to information about you and your activities on the Website that does not identify you personally. The non-personal data we collect when you visit our Website may include the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website you came from before visiting our Website, which pages you visit on our Website, which URL you next go to, which browser you used to view our Website, your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, and any search terms entered on our Website. If you access our Website with a mobile device, we collect the model and manufacturer of your mobile device, its operating system, and your mobile phone carrier (if you are accessing the Website on a cellular network).

We do not connect or associate the Personal Information you submit to the Non-Personal Information we collect on our Website. Personal Information does not include information regarding an organization or corporate entity.

A. PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal Information about You Collected Directly from You

There are times at which we ask you to provide certain Personal Information about yourself. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice, and we only collect such information if you actively submit it. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to access certain services, offers, and content on our Website. The Personal Information we may collect and maintain about you includes:

  • Contact information, such as first and last name, email address, phone number and residential address;
  • State and city;
  • Social media usernames;
  • Employer; and
  • Job title.

There may be times at which you provide Personal Information about yourself in regards to employment opportunities with our Firm. The Firm uses a third party vendor applicant tracking software to collect applications for employment with our Firm. When you seek information on our Website about job opportunities or submit a job application, you will automatically and seamlessly be transferred to our vendor’s website to process your requests. As such, you are then subject to our vendor’s privacy policy, which is accessible via a link on those web pages.

Personal Information about You Received from other Sources          

Where permitted by applicable law, the Firm may collect information about you from other sources, including through interactive applications (such as mobile devices and third party services), from commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public databases),  and when you access the Website through a SNS. If you interact with our Website through a SNS, then you may also be permitting us to have access and store some of the information from your social network profile, which may include some or all of the following Personal Information:

  • Contact information, such as first and last name, email address, phone number and residential address;
  • State and city;
  • Social media usernames;
  • Employer;
  • Job title; and
  • Your username and password for those services and other information available about or collected from you by those sources.

The information you allow us to access varies by source and SNS platform, and it is affected by the privacy settings established by those third parties. This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of third parties, including those that may disclose information to us. For more information about how those third parties handle your Personal Information, please refer to their privacy policies.

B. NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

In addition to collecting Personal Information from you, we may use a variety of technologies that automatically collect Non-Personal Information. Non-Personal Information is information about you or your use of the Website that does not identify you personally. This includes your domain server, device type, web browser, the operating system or platform you use to access the Website as well as referrer data identifying the web pages you visited prior to and after visiting the Website and your movement and activity within the Website.

  • Cookies and Other Automatic Data Collection Technologies. Our Website uses automatic data collection technologies to obtain the Non-Personal Information described in this policy. Specifically, our Website uses browser cookies. A browser cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our Website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Website.  We do not use flash cookies or web beacons.
     
  • Social Media Plug-Ins. We use social media plug-ins (buttons) on this Website such as for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others. If you click on one of these buttons, your browser connects directly to the web servers of the associated SNS. If you are registered and logged into your account(s) on the SNS, the SNS may receive and store data about your use of the  webpages  on our Website that you visit while logged into your SNS account. When you use a social network plug-in on our Website (e.g. you press the Facebook “Like” feature, or the Twitter “Tweet this” feature) or post a comment on the Website page, this information is directly transmitted to the associated SNS from your browser. Even if you are not registered with the SNS or you are logged out when you visit our Website, your IP address may be transmitted to and stored by the SNS.  Each SNS has its own privacy policy and rules concerning the sharing of information, including your ability to limit such sharing. If you do not want the social network to collect the information about you described above, or to share it with us and other third parties, you must review the privacy policy of the relevant social network and take the appropriate steps described in that policy. In addition, you should log out of the relevant social network before you visit our Website.
     
  • Mobile Device Identifiers.  Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and the Firm and/or third parties providing services on our behalf may receive such device information if you access the Website through a mobile device. If you access our Website on a cellular network with a mobile device, we collect the model and manufacturer of your mobile device, its operating system, and your mobile phone carrier

Why We Collect Information About You 

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide clients with superior service and to provide all visitors a smooth, efficient, and personalized experience while using our Website. For example, if you request information on our Website, we use your Personal Information to provide the requested information. We use Non-Personal Information on an aggregated basis to analyze customer behavior to help us understand how visitors use our Website and to measure interest in the various pages. We use this information to improve the content of our Website in order to make our Website easier to use. 

Using and Sharing Information About You 

We use your Personal Information to fulfill the purpose(s) for which you have provided it, to respond to and process your specific requests for information, and for any other purpose that we disclose to you at the time we collect your Personal Information. We may use some Personal Information to send you updates, news, conferences, or other information, which we deem may be important to our visitors. We also may share Personal Information with our contractors and service providers whom we retain to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Information confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. 

If you provide Personal Information to us via the Website in the context of an event that Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP sponsors or hosts with another company, you may also be providing the Personal Information to the co-sponsor or co-host. For purposes of events, we may share your first and last name and applicable company name with our co-sponsor or co-host. For example, if we hold an event with an accounting firm, we would give the accounting firm your registration information to allow them to track reservations.

Although unlikely, in certain instances we may be required to provide Personal Information in response to a court order, subpoena, or government investigation. We may release certain Personal Information when we believe that such a release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply our Privacy Policy, to abide by our professional ethical responsibilities, or to protect the interests and/or safety of the Firm, its employees or its clients. We may also share Personal Information in the event of a merger, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Firm's assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by the Firm is among the assets transferred.

Your Choices

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP will not use or share the Personal Information collected on our Website in ways unrelated to the purpose for which you provided the information or without providing you a choice whether to permit any such unrelated uses. At the time you provide your Personal Information, we will offer you a choice as to whether you want to receive further communications about newsletters, alerts, Firm information or other messages. If you choose not to receive these communications, we will not use the information you provide for this purpose. Please note that even if you opt-out or unsubscribe from promotional offers or other marketing messages, we still may need to share your Personal Information or send communications relating to your use of the Website, such as a transaction initiated by you or for other legitimate non-marketing reasons.  

If after choosing to receive communications from the Firm you change your mind and wish not to receive further marketing communications from Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP, let us know by submitting your "opt-out" choice at: webinfo@LRRC.com or by calling us at: 602-262-5716. You can opt-out at any time. All email communications from us, such as newsletters, tell you how to stop receiving them. Please follow these instructions if you no longer wish to receive the email messages. If you would like to update or correct your email address, street address or other Personal Information with us please contact us the same way. 

Unless restricted by law, we will take all reasonable steps to functionally delete your Personal Information from our database(s) upon request, although we may keep a copy for archival purposes, for as long as necessary in our opinion, to be in compliance with applicable laws. Please remember, if you delete certain information you may not be able to continue to access other portions of our Website without entering additional information.

How Long We Store Your Information

We generally keep data on our servers or in our archives for as long as we reasonably need it. We may alter this practice according to changing requirements. For example, we may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. We may keep other data for longer periods if applicable law requires it.

Your California Privacy Rights

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits residents of the State of California to request from certain businesses with whom the California resident has an established business relationship a list of all third parties to which the business, during the immediately preceding calendar year, has disclosed certain personally identifiable information for direct marketing purposes.

Do Not Track  

We do not collect information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or other online services (commonly known as behavioral tracking). Consequently, our Website does not act upon or respond to DO NOT TRACK signals or technologies that you may have implemented in your web browser.

Protecting Your Information

We have implemented various measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. We use encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your Personal Information that you share with us. All Personal Information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while the Firm strives to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Website, including, without limitation, sending Personal Information to us via email, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems. 

Links to Third Party Sites 

Our Website may contain links to sites operated and maintained by third parties, over which we have no control. Privacy policies on such linked sites may be different from our Policy. You access such linked sites at your own risk. You should familiarize yourself with the privacy policy provided by that party before disclosing any Personal Information on such site. Links to any third party sites do not constitute or imply an endorsement or recommendation by us of the linked sites. You agree that we shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred by you as a result of your dealings with any third party.

Policy Changes 

To improve the services it can offer you, Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP may opt to expand its capabilities for obtaining information about users in the future. If we modify this Privacy Policy, we will update the “Date Last Modified” and such changes will be effective upon posting.

We will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have. Please be sure to check this page before proceeding to use our Website. Regardless of any changes we make to our Privacy Policy, we will always use your Personal Information in accordance with the version of the Policy in place at the time you provided your information, unless you give your express consent for us to do otherwise.
