Personal Information You Provide
You may choose to provide personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number and email address) on our Sites. Here are the ways you may provide the information and the types of information you may submit. We also tell you how we may use the information. The list below explains those uses for which we have a legitimate business interest.
We also may use the personal information we collect to protect us against and prevent fraud, claims, and other liabilities and to comply with or enforce applicable legal requirements, and our policies and terms. We use personal information for these purposes when it is necessary to protect, exercise or defend our legal rights, or when we are required to do so by a law that applies to us.
Personal Information We Collect by Automated Means
Our Sites may use analytics to create statistical reports. These reports would tell us, for example, how many users visited our Sites, what pages have been browsed, and from what geographic regions users visited the Sites. The information collected through the use of analytics may include, for example, your IP address, the website from which you visited us, the type of device you used and your search query that led you to the Sites. Your IP address is masked on our systems and will only be used on a need-to-know basis to resolve technical issues, to administer our Sites and to understand visitor preferences. Traffic information on our Sites is accessed only by authorized personnel. We do not use any of this information to directly identify visitors and we do not share it with third parties. We process personal information for these purposes because we have a legitimate interest in understanding how our Sites are used. Our websites are not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers.
Information We Share
We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose personal information visitors submit through our Sites, except as described in this Privacy Notice. We may share your information among Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP-related entities for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. We also may share the information with our joint marketing partners, who may communicate with you about other events and topics. Additionally, we may share your information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf (for example, to process online registration forms for events or to administer our blogs). These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information you have provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.

How We Protect Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards for the Sites designed to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal information we collect through our Sites.
Information We Transfer
We may transfer the personal information we collect through the Sites to other countries where we do business, which may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you originally provided the data.
We will comply with applicable legal requirements by providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to data recipients in countries outside of the European Economic Area. To the extent that these data recipients are in countries that have not been recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection, we use appropriate safeguards aimed at ensuring such a level of data protection is in place, including by entering into the European Commission’s EU Standard Contractual Clauses with the data recipients or ensuring that the data recipient has certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, or has implemented Binding Corporate Rules. To obtain a copy of the safeguards, please contact us as indicated below.
How Long We Keep Information
We will keep your personal information for the time period necessary to achieve the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice, taking into account applicable statute of limitation periods and records retention requirements under applicable law.
Subject to applicable law, you have the right to request access to and rectification of the personal information we maintain about you, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal information, or to object to that processing on grounds relating to your particular situation.
In addition, you may have the right to request erasure of your personal information in certain circumstances provided by applicable law. Subject to applicable law, where technically feasible, upon written request and verifiable identification, we will provide you with a copy of your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. To exercise these rights, please contact us as indicated below. You may lodge a complaint with a data protection authority if you are not satisfied with our response.
