Effective Date: May 25, 2018

We hope that you will find your visit to our website to be both useful and informational. This Online Privacy Policy explains Snell & Wilmer’s online information practices and applies to your use of our website and services offered through our website. We respect your privacy and are committed to using responsible practices in the collection, maintenance and use of your personal information.

Terms of Use
Snell & Wilmer may amend our Online Privacy Policy at any time without specific notice to you. Your use of our website constitutes your acceptance of our Online Privacy Policy as amended or revised by us as of the Effective Date located at the top of this page. You should review this Policy each time you visit our website in order to stay informed of its current terms.

No Attorney-Client Relationship or Confidentiality
Our website is meant to increase your knowledge about Snell & Wilmer. Any communications that you make through our website do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Any information sent to Snell & Wilmer before establishing an attorney-client relationship will not be held in confidence, and may be used for the benefit of the firm's other clients or future clients. Accordingly, unless and until we formally establish an attorney-client relationship, do NOT send or otherwise communicate to us any information you would want to be maintained in confidence, whether through this website, through any email address posted on this website, or otherwise.

Personally Identifiable Information
Throughout our website, you will have opportunities to submit Personally Identifiable Information to us voluntarily. For example, we collect the Personally Identifiable Information you provide us if you subscribe to one of our informational publications. You might also choose to provide Personally Identifiable Information by submitting a resume or through contacting a Snell & Wilmer lawyer through an email link on our website. The Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to us may include, for example, your name, email address, physical address and phone number. You may also browse our website without sharing any Personally Identifiable Information.

Where Your Personally Identifiable Information Is Stored
Our website resides on computers located in the United States. Your Personally Identifiable Information will be used and stored in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may differ from those in other parts of the world.

How We Use Your Personally Identifiable Information
Snell & Wilmer respects your privacy and is committed to using responsible practices in the use of your Personally Identifiable information. If you choose to submit Personally Identifiable Information to us, we will use the information for the purpose you requested. Snell & Wilmer does not sell or share your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties.

If you choose to correspond with us by email, postal service or other methods, we may retain such correspondence and the information contained within it and use it to respond to your inquiry. For example, if you submit your email address to subscribe to one of our informational publications, we will use it to send that requested information to you. If you submit your resume to us, we may provide it for review to personnel within Snell & Wilmer who are associated with a job opening.

We may also keep your information and use it to provide you with additional information in the future that we deem to be of interest to you. If you do not wish us to use your Personally Identifiable Information in this manner, please do not submit it to us.

Snell & Wilmer may disclose Personally Identifiable Information about you if we believe in good faith that the law requires it (such as a subpoena, court order or a law enforcement request), or if we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect our legal interests.

In the unlikely event of a sale, acquisition, merger or bankruptcy involving Snell & Wilmer, the information you have provided to us may be transferred to a third party.

How Long We Keep Your Personally Identifiable Information
This depends on whether you or your company or organization are an existing client, have responded to recent mailings or bulletins or have attended recent events. Unless you request us to delete your Personally Identifiable information, you may reasonably expect us to retain it as long as we have an ongoing relationship with you. We audit our mailing lists regularly to remove contacts with which we do not have an active business relationship.

If you have submitted a resume for an open job posted on our site, we may retain it in consideration for possible future openings unless you notify us to delete it. We delete resumes on file that are dated beyond the period specified in our internal retention policy.

Laws may require us to hold certain Personally Identifiable Information for specific periods. Again, if you do not wish us to handle your Personally Identifiable Information in this manner, please do not submit it to us.

If, at any time, you wish to change, update or delete the Personally Identifiable Information which you had previously provided, you may contact us at privacyofficer@swlaw.com.

All requests to delete personal information may be subject to our internal information retention policies and/or to any applicable legal requirements.

If you reside outside the United States, in a country outside of the EU, you may also have rights regarding your Personally Identifiable Information under laws applicable to that country.

Anonymized and Aggregated Information
Cookies are small files in which information may be collected when you visit a website. When you visit Snell & Wilmer’s website, no cookies are created containing your Personally Identifiable Information.

Like many other websites, we do utilize Google Analytics to track and report how you use our website. Google creates its own cookies as part of this process. You may wish to read Google’s privacy policy as it relates to that service.

The data Google tracks for us does not identify you personally. For example, it may store information about the type of browser you are using, your operating system, your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, the time, date, and length of your visit and which of our website pages you visited. We use the reporting provided to us by Google to identify the preferences of our visitors in order to improve our website content as well as to analyze usage statistics and trends. We may share this data with third parties (usually just to our website service provider for improvements to or for maintenance of our website).

Links to Other Websites
For your convenience, our website contains links to other websites whose information and privacy practices are probably different than ours. If you choose to use these links, you will leave our website, and will then be subject to the privacy and information practices of those websites. We do not control and are not responsible for any of their content or their privacy policies, if any. We do not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you choose to access any of the other websites listed on our website, you should understand that you do so at your own risk.

Security
We maintain physical, technical and administrative safeguards to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your Personally Identifiable Information. However, we do not guarantee that these measures will be sufficient to protect against all efforts to gain unauthorized access to that information. Snell & Wilmer also has no responsibility or control over the security of any transmission method you may use to send us your information. If you are concerned about the potential risk involved in maintaining the security of your Personally Identifiable Information when adding it to our website, allowing us to store it on our servers or when transmitting that information, please do not submit it to us.

Social Media and Personal Information
We use social media options to communicate and interact with consumers, and have links to certain social media providers such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube available on our website. When interacting with a Snell & Wilmer presence on those social media websites, you may opt to reveal certain personal information. We may collect and use the personal information that you make available to us on that page or account, including any information you have made public on it. Any personal information you have chosen to share on our social media pages will be visible to persons visiting those pages, and privacy on those pages is governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies.

Email and Other Communications
We may contact you by email or other means at an address that you have provided to us. If you do not want to receive email from us, please “unsubscribe” through the link that is included in our emails. If you do not want to receive mailings, do not check the box to receive such mailings when you give us your personal information, or follow the directions to remove your name from our mailing list.

Children's Privacy
We are committed to complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Our website is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If we receive Personally Identifiable Information that we discover was provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly destroy such information. A child’s parent or guardian can also request that the personal information of their child be deleted from our records using the information provided in the “Contact” section below.

California Privacy Rights and “Do Not Track” Disclosures
Your Personally Identifiable Information is not sold to or shared with third parties. Also, we do not track your online activity across other websites, nor do we knowingly permit third parties to conduct online tracking of you while you are visiting our website. Consequently, we do not respond to your browser's Do Not Track signal.
