Privacy Policy | Baker, Burton & Lundy

Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated exclusively by Baker, Burton & Lundy, P.C., a for-profit entity in the State of California (sometimes referred to herein as the “Firm”, “we”, “us”, or “our”).  We are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website, clients, prospective clients, suppliers of goods and services to the Firm, and any other individuals about whom the Firm obtains personal information (each of which may sometimes be referred to herein as “you” and/or “your” when appropriate). 

Your use of this website signifies your acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to the terms set forth herein, please do not use this website.  This Privacy Policy frequently references “personally identifiable information” (”PII”), which for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, means information that, either on its own or in combination with other information held by the Firm, enables you to be identified or recognized, including information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household, such as a name, physical address, e-mail address, or telephone number.

What Information We Collect

This Privacy Policy is designed to inform you regarding the PII that this website collects, how such PII is utilized, and to what extent and with whom such PII may be shared.  

You are not required to submit PII to use the public portions of this website, provided that you may elect to provide PII to the Firm by means of e-mail or other communication.  Should you choose to provide such information, the Firm may keep a record of your name, email address, and any other information you voluntarily provide.  We may elect to use your PII to provide you with law firm publications, including newsletters, updates, blog posts and the like, event invitations, or other mailings that may be of interest to you.  You may opt-out of such mailings, submit corrections to your PII, or have your PII removed from our database by contacting us as indicated herein.

In addition to the foregoing, we may obtain PII from you in the course of business, including through your use of this website, when you contact or request information from us, when we provide services to you, or receive services from you, which PII may include: identification data such as your name, age, gender, occupation, or job title; contact information such as your email address, telephone number, physical address, or social media account information; financial data such as bank account and/or credit card information and invoicing details; and “usage data” such your internet protocol address, browser type and version, the portions of our website that you view, the time and date of your use of our website, the amount of time spent on those portions of our website, unique device identifiers, and other diagnostic data.  Likewise, when you access our website by or through a mobile device, we may collect certain usage data automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile internet browser you use, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

How Data is Used

We may utilize such aggregated usage data to interpret the effectiveness and popularity of the website, and to develop and implement changes and improvements to it.  The Firm may make such usage data available to employees, contractors or other third parties to the extent necessary for them to perform certain site-related services on behalf of the Firm.

This website may make use of temporary or “session” cookies in order to enable the basic functionality of the site.  Third party links may appear on the site and, if so, those third parties may set and access cookies on your computer.  Those organizations should have their own privacy policies that govern their use of any PII.  Most web browsers have the capability of rejecting cookies, and if you are concerned about their usage, you are encouraged to avail yourself of that technology.  Please be advised, however, that this website may not function properly without cookies.

The Firm may utilize any PII obtained through this website or otherwise for the following purposes: to provide and maintain the services provided by us; to contact you via email, telephone, text message, SMS, or other equivalent forms of electronic communication; to provide you with news, updates, or general information regarding the Firm, including our services, events, and personnel; for marketing purposes; in order to perform under the terms of a contract; in order to process invoices and payments; and to address and manage any requests made by you to the Firm.

The Firm may share any PII obtained about you through this website or otherwise with third parties under certain circumstances, including:  (1) situations in which you have given your express consent; (2) when a service provided on this website requires that PII be shared with a service provider that has agreed not to disclose the information to third parties; (3) pursuant to a lawful request by a court of competent jurisdiction or upon presentation of a valid law enforcement warrant; (4) to protect and defend the legitimate business interests, rights, or property of the Firm, and (5) in urgent circumstances, to protect personal or public safety.

Third Party Use of Data

In addition to the foregoing, certain third party service providers may have access to any PII obtained about you through this website or otherwise, which service providers may include: Google Analytics and Google Places (for more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en); Mailchimp (for more information on the privacy practices of Mailchimp, please visit https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/); and Sage Pay (for more information on the privacy policy practices of Sage Pay please visit https://www.sagepay.co.uk/policies).

The Firm will only retain PII and other information for as long as necessary for the purposes for which that information was collected as set out in this Privacy Policy or for longer as required under any applicable legal, regulatory, accounting, or reporting requirements. Should you opt out or no longer wish to receive communications from us, we will securely delete your personal information from the relevant mailing list(s).

The Firm takes reasonable measures to protect PII from misuse, interference, and unauthorized loss, access, modification, or disclosure. Unfortunately, despite such measures, no data transmission over the internet and no database or other depository of information can be completely secure. As a result, and subject to other applicable rules, regulations, and professional duties, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any of your PII as obtained through this website or otherwise. By providing information online, you accept the inherent risk of providing information through an insecure medium, and we will not be and are not liable for disclosures of your PII or other information due to errors in transmission, networks that we do not control, or unauthorized acts of third parties.

The Firm does not direct any of our websites to children or individuals under eighteen (18) years of age. Individuals under eighteen (18) should consult with their parent or guardian about the use of this website.  If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with PII, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected such PII from anyone under the age of eighteen (18) without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.

California Civil Codes

Under California Civil Code Section 1798 (California’s Shine the Light law), California residents with an established business relationship with the Firm may request information once per year about sharing their PII and other information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.  If you would like to request more information under the California Shine the Light law, you may contact us using the information provided below.

California Business and Professions Code section 22581 allows California residents under the age of 18 who are registered users of online sites, services or applications to request and obtain removal of content or information they have publicly posted. To request removal of such data, and if you are a California resident, you may contact us using the information provided below.  You should be aware, however, that such a request does not guarantee complete or comprehensive removal of content or information posted online and that the law may not permit or require removal in certain circumstances.

The Firm has no control over and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.

“Do Not Track” signals are options available on your browser to tell operators of websites that you do not wish to have your online activity tracked. Our website operates no differently if these “Do Not Track” signals are enabled or disabled.

The Firm reserves the right to change, modify, or update this Privacy Policy at any time without notice.  Any substantial changes in the way your PII or other information is used will be posted here.
