1. What is personal information?
Personal information is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Personal information is a broad concept and includes details such as, your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, instant messenger ID, and banking and payment information.
2. How and when do we collect personal information?
We, and our service providers, collect personal information in a variety of ways.
If you choose not to provide us with personal information when requested, we may not be able to provide you with the information and/or services you have requested or otherwise fulfill the purpose(s) for which we have asked for the personal information.
a. From your submissions.
We collect personal information directly from our potential clients and clients. We also collect personal information directly from visitors to our website who use the Contact Us feature or subscribe to our blog.

c. From cookies.
Our website uses first party cookies (cookies set by our own website) and third party cookies (cookies set by third party websites).
i. Google Analytics with IP anonymization
Google Analytics collects standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site, and how visitors are directed to the site.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our website. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with any personal information.
d. Pixel tags or similar technologies.
Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) may be used in connection with some services to, among other things, track the actions of users of our services (including email recipients), measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the services and response rates.
Our third-party communication service provider MailChimp uses web beacons and click tracking, which embeds tracking information into each click-through URL, to track who is opening our newsletters and subscriber engagement.

- for any other legitimate business purpose.
We are committed to processing your information in a way compatible with this notice.

5. Onward transfer of personal information to third parties.
In the context of an onward transfer of personal information, we are responsible for the processing of personal information received under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transferred to a third party, unless we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
a. Transfer to third party agent.
Before transferring personal data to a third party acting as our agent, we will (i) ascertain that the agent is obligated to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles; (ii) take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that the agent effectively processes the personal information transferred in a manner consistent with our obligations under the Principles, (iii) transfer such data only for limited and specified purposes; (iv) require the agent to notify the organization if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by the Principles; (v) upon notice, including under (iv), take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing; and (vi) provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its contract with that agent to the Department upon request.
b. Transfer to third party controller.
To the extent possible, where a receiving party is not also Privacy Shield certified, we will enter into a contract with the third-party data controller providing that personal data may only be processed for the limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual and that the controller will provide the same level of protection as required by the Privacy Shield Principles.
6. Collection of other non-personal information.
We and our third-party service providers may collect other information in a variety of ways, including:
7. How do we protect your information?
We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal data.
- Communications with our website are encrypted through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
- Our email service provider uses encryption and data is encrypted at rest.
- Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
- We will take reasonable steps to ensure that data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you believe that your communications with us are no longer secure, please immediately notify us as given in the “Contacting Us” section below.
8. How long do we store your personal information?
We will retain your personal information for the length of time required for the specific purpose or purposes for which it was collected.
Additionally, we may be obliged to store some data for a longer time, for example, where a longer time period is required by applicable laws. In this case, we will ensure that your personal information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
9. International Transfer of Your Information.
Your personal information may be transferred across national borders, including to countries that may have different levels of privacy protection than your country. The EU has found the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield to provide an adequate level of protection, and we have self-certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield. If you are in a jurisdiction not covered by the Privacy Shields, then by submitting personal information to us, you consent to such transfers, as well as to the processing and storage of such personal information in such countries.
10. Access, Reviewing and/or Updating Your Information.
If you provided personal information to us, you may request access to that information and correct, amend, or delete that information. While we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, we reserve the right to impose restrictions and requirements on such requests, if allowed or required by applicable law. For example, for EU individuals, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual's privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
Any inquiries and requests should be sent to the email address in the “Contacting Us” section.
11. Referrals or Links to Third-Party Service Providers.
We may provide referrals to and links to third party service providers. Our Privacy Notice does not address, and we are not responsible for the privacy, information or other practices of any such service providers. Moreover, the provision of a referral or a link does not imply endorsement of such service providers.
12. Choice / Opting out.
We will give individuals the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether their personal information will be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose materially different from the purpose for which it was originally collected or later authorized by the individual.

If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us on a going-forward basis, you may opt-out of receiving such emails by following the unsubscribe instructions in any such message or by emailing us as given in the “Contacting Us” section below.
We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, and you cannot opt-out from receiving administrative messages.
