For individuals located in the European Economic Area or whose personal information is processed in connection with the activities of our London office, please pay particular attention to the section “European Data Protection Law” which, in addition to the general information in this Privacy Notice, contains further information about our processing of your personal data, as required by European data protections laws.

Information about your use of the Services, including your internet protocol address (“IP address”), the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computer's "location" in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. If you use a dial-up connection or a connection that assigns dynamic IP addresses, your computer will be assigned a new IP Address each time you connect to the Internet. If, however, your computer is permanently connected to the Internet using a static IP address, the IP address assigned to your computer will generally be the same each time you use your computer. Although it does not identify you by name, we treat your IP address as your personal information.

    You should know, that when you access the Services by clicking on a link in an electronic communication you receive from us, your browser tells us that someone has clicked on a particular link in that particular electronic communication. We use this information to improve our marketing efforts. In addition, we review our server logs — which contain visitors' IP addresses — for security and fraud prevention purposes.

  • Event Co-sponsors. Depending on your privacy preferences, we may contact you with information about seminars and other events sponsored by Faegre Baker Daniels. Some of these events may be co-sponsored with other organizations.

     

  • As Required by Law; For Public Safety. We may disclose personal information when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or a legal obligation, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Additionally, we may share your information if we, in good faith, believe your actions are inconsistent with our terms of use or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of any third party.

Consulting Services

Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting is a consulting practice, not a law practice. Thus, Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting’s clients do not have attorney-client relationships with Faegre Baker Daniels LLP or any of its legal professionals absent independent engagement of the firm’s lawyers under a separate legal engagement letter. Faegre Baker Daniels LLP operates Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting as a distinct consulting practice pursuant to Rule 5.7 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, as enacted in various jurisdictions. Clients of Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting, through consulting engagement agreements, do have certain protections of confidentiality and against defined business issue conflicts. They do not, however, have the protections of the attorney-client relationship, including for example the attorney-client privilege or protection from certain conflicts of interest under the Rules of Professional Conduct.

If you are a client of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP or of Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting and you have any question regarding the nature of your relationship or what protections apply to you, please contact the professional with whom you work at Faegre Baker Daniels LLP or Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting for clarification.

Thank you.

In addition, terms set forth in an offer to compromise made pursuant to Fed. R. Evid. 408 (or a similar state law) may apply to you. In the event of a conflict between these Extranet Terms of Use and any applicable Other Documents, conflicting terms found in the Other Documents will prevail over these Extranet Terms of Use.

In addition, we may require you to follow additional rules, guidelines or other conditions to access various special features or restricted areas of this Extranet Site, to participate in certain activities available through this Extranet Site, or for other reasons. In such cases, you may be asked to expressly consent to these additional terms.

Likewise, if you are a Faegre Baker Daniels client and have entered into a joint-defense agreement with a third party, we may create an Extranet Site for purposes of coordinating communication among all parties to the joint-defense agreement (a "Joint Defense Extranet Site").

However, if you are not a Faegre Baker Daniels client, you should not rely on any legal advice that Faegre Baker Daniels provides through a Joint Defense Extranet Site. Instead, you should obtain the advice of your own attorneys.

Conversely, we may create an Extranet Site for one of our clients who is involved is a transaction so that the parties to the transactions and their counsel and other advisors can easily share data with each other (a "Dataroom Extranet Site"). Because of the nature of the parties who have access to Dataroom Extranet Sites, we will not ordinarily provide legal advice through a Dataroom Extranet Site.

This extranet site (this "Extranet Site") is owned and operated by Faegre Baker Daniels LLP ("Faegre Baker Daniels," "we," "our" or "us"). Faegre Baker Daniels is an international law firm with offices in the United States, United Kingdom and China. This Extranet Privacy Policy explains how we protect your privacy when you use this Extranet Site.

This Extranet Privacy Policy is part of the Extranet Terms of Use that govern your use of this Extranet Site (our "Extranet Terms of Use"). You may review our Extranet Terms of Use by clicking on the link at the bottom of the login page of this Extranet Site.

Scope of This Extranet Privacy Policy

This Extranet Privacy Policy covers the "personal information" we collect through this Extranet Site. "Personal information" is information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us.

Your Consent

Please read this Extranet Privacy Policy carefully. If you do not agree to our Extranet Terms of Use or this Extranet Privacy Policy, you should not access this Extranet Site.

Privacy Notices

This Extranet Privacy Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by "privacy notices" posted on this Extranet Site. Generally, privacy notices provide details about the personal information we collect on particular pages or particular areas of this Extranet Site, why we need that information, and choices you may have about the ways we use or share that information. Our privacy notices are part of this Extranet Privacy Policy.

Changes to This Extranet Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update or revise this Extranet Privacy Policy at any time and without prior notice. These changes will be effective as of the date we post the revised version on this Extranet Site.

What Personal Information Do We Collect Through This Extranet Site?

Information You Provide. We collect the personal information you knowingly provide (using your mouse and keyboard) when you use this Extranet Site. The information we collect depends on how you use this Extranet Site.

Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your Web browser. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. An "IP address" is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computer's "location" in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. If you use a dial-up connection or a connection that assigns dynamic IP addresses, your computer will be assigned a new IP Address each time you connect to the Internet. If, however, your computer is permanently connected to the Internet using a static IP address, the IP address assigned to your computer will generally be the same each time you use your computer. Although it does not identify you by name, we treat your IP address as your personal information.

We may link the information provided by your browser to information that identifies you personally. For example, when you access this Extranet Site by clicking on a link in an electronic communication you receive from us, your browser tells us that someone has clicked on a particular link in that particular electronic communication. We may use this functionality to confirm that you have accessed a particular document posted to this Extranet Site. We may also use this information to improve our marketing efforts. In addition, we review our server logs — which contain visitors' IP addresses — for security and fraud prevention purposes. If criminal activity is suspected, we may share our server logs and the personal information we have collected through this Extranet Site with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Cookies and Similar Technologies. We use "cookies" and other Web technologies for a number of purposes, including

  • to collect information about the ways visitors use this Extranet Site — for example, which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page;
  • to support the features and functionality of this Extranet Site — for example, to save you the trouble of re-entering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits to this Extranet Site; and
  • to personalize your experience when you use this Extranet Site.

 

Sometimes the information we collect using these Web technologies does not identify you personally.  Other times, however, we may link the information we collect using Web technologies to other information that identifies you personally, including through the use of your login information.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave this Extranet Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit this Extranet Site, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of this Extranet Site if you set your browser to reject cookies.

How Do We Use the Personal Information We Collect Through This Extranet Site?

Generally, we use the personal information we collect through this Extranet Site to:

  • Provide the information and services you request;
  • Personalize your experience when you use this Extranet Site;
  • Personalize our communications with you;
  • Contact you with other information and/or services that we believe will be of interest to you;
  • Contact you with information and notices related to your use of this Extranet Site;
  • Invite you to participate in surveys and provide feedback to us;

How Do We Share Your Personal Information?

Parties That Have Access to This Extranet Site. The primary purpose of this Extranet Site is to facilitate communication among the parties that have access to it. Thus, by posting information to this Extranet Site, you are sharing that information with everyone who has access to this Site. The purpose for which we create an Extranet Site determines who has access to it. Some Extranet Sites are accessible only to Faegre Baker Daniels and one of our clients. We create other Extranet Sites to facilitate deals between companies, in which case you may be accessing the Extranet Site either as a Faegre Baker Daniels client, a related party (such as a joint defendant), or as someone adverse to that client. You should not post information to this Extranet Site that you do not wish to share with other entities that have access to this Site.

Clients and Browser or Cookie Data. As described above, information you knowingly provide (using your mouse and keyboard) when you use this Extranet Site may be accessible to everyone who has access to this Extranet Site. In addition, we may share with the client for whom we are operating this Extranet Site (and other people at such client's direction) information about how you use this Extranet Site, including information provided by your Web browser or collected through Cookies and similar technologies. For example, if this Extranet Site is being used as a dataroom for our client XYZ Company, then we may tell XYZ which pages on this Extranet Site you visited, the frequency of your visits to those pages, and the duration of your visits to those pages.

Service Providers. We may share your personal information with companies that perform services on our behalf, such as Web hosting service providers. These third parties are required by contract to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.

Co-Sponsored Events. We may contact you with information about seminars and other events sponsored by Faegre Baker Daniels. Some of these events may be co-sponsored with other organizations. In such cases, we may lend our mailing list to a co-sponsor so that all of the communications regarding the event can be processed centrally.

Compliance With Laws and Protection of Our Rights and the Rights of Others. We may disclose personal information when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or a legal obligation. We may also disclose personal information to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce or apply our Extranet Terms of Use or other agreements; or to protect our own rights or property or the rights, property or safety of our users or others.

Successors in Interest. Your personal information may be transferred to another law firm that succeeds to all or part of our business, for example, if we reorganize our partnership structure or transfer a significant portion of our assets or personnel to another firm. In such event, your personal information will continue to be protected by this Extranet Privacy Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.

How Can You Access, Update or Correct Your Personal Information?

Marketing. We will respond to you within a reasonable time and, in any case, within the time limits established by applicable law. We may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In most cases, we will provide access and correct or delete any inaccurate information you discover. In some cases, however, we may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires us to do so or if we are unable to verify your identity. We reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to charge a reasonable fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the personal information we hold about you.

Security

We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information we collect. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases. Your transmissions are, therefore, at your own risk.

From time to time, we may supplement the personal information we collect through this Extranet Site with information from other sources, including information we collect from you through other channels.
