Information We Collect
Each of our marketing emails includes an automated way for you to opt out (unsubscribe) from that particular communication or from all marketing emails sent by Goodwin Procter. To opt out, please follow the instructions on the e-mail you receive.
Please note that if you reply to a Goodwin Procter address in one of our marketing emails, the communication you send to us will not create a lawyer – client relationship. Please do not send us any information that you or anyone else considers to be confidential or secret unless we have first agreed to be your legal representatives in that matter. Any information you send us before we agree to provide you with legal representation cannot be protected from disclosure.
Non-Personal Information. We may collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit the Site. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single, identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited our Site and the pages of the Site that were accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our Site to the needs of our visitors.
Information We Share
We share Personal Information between our offices so that information submitted to one office may be accessed, stored or processed by another office in another country where we have offices, including countries outside the European Economic Area which may not have privacy (data protection) legislation and regulation comparable to the country in which you reside.
We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose Personal Information concerning visitors to the Site, except as described herein. We may share Personal Information provided by our website visitors with third parties we have retained to perform services on our behalf. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information about you if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, in order to respond to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, and/or 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 also reserve the right to transfer any Personal Information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the Personal Information you provide to the Site. However, no security system can be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the complete security of your Personal Information. Please exercise caution when determining what Personal Information you disclose via the Site.
Links to Third-Party Websites
This Site may contain links to external websites operated by third parties. Please be aware that these third-party websites are governed only by their own privacy policies. We cannot be responsible for these policies.
While every partner and employee of Goodwin has a unique firm provided email address, email which you send to us or which we send to you may be monitored by Goodwin Procter to ensure compliance with professional standards and our internal compliance policies. Monitoring is not continuous or routine, but may be undertaken on the instruction of a partner where there are reasonable grounds for doing so. Occasional spot checks or audits may also be undertaken on the instruction or with the authority of a partner.
You are entitled to request details of the Personal Information we have about you and to have it rectified or deleted as required by applicable data protection legislation. All such requests must be made in writing using the contact details specified below. We reserve the right to make a small charge to meet our costs in providing you with details of the Personal Information we have about you where that is permitted by local law.
