Privacy Policy

Date Last Modified: May 25, 2018

This Policy applies only to information that is collected on the Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP Website.  If you have hired us to be your lawyer, our privacy and confidentiality obligations are described in our engagement letter with you.  This policy only addresses what happens if you visit us online and this policy does not apply to information collected by:

•    us offline or through any other means; or
•    any third party, including through any application or content that may link to or be accessible from or on the Website.

Regardless, Your privacy is important to you and to Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie. With this notice, we want to explain our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our Website.

1.    The information we collect

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you - such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. – unless you choose to fill out a ‘Contact Us’ form, found on many of the pages of the site or to email us directly.

2.    How we normally use Non-Personal Information 

We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider. 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. We use aggregated non-personally identifiable information to analyze and improve the design, use and content of the Website 

In the ordinary course, we use personal information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry or process an application form you have completed on various sections of our Web site.

Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any of the offices of Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie and any third parties who provide services on our behalf. Personal Information that we collect may be transferred within our offices in the United States (or outside of the country).  If we transfer your information outside of the United States, you should know that the applicable data protection laws may differ, and by visiting this site, you expressly agree to such transfer.

3.    How we normally use Personal Information 

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 will obtain your consent to 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.

4.    Collection of information by third-parties 

If you access the Website from a third party platform, such as a Social Networking Site , you may be required to also read and accept the terms and conditions and privacy policy of that third party. The Firm is not responsible for the privacy practices of any third parties, and you should contact such third parties directly to determine their respective privacy policies.
