Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits residents of California to request certain details about what personal information a business shares with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Trusted Counsel does not share your personal information with third parties for those parties’ own direct marketing purposes. We only share your personal information with third parties if those parties need that information to help us provide our services. If you have questions about how we share your information with third parties or your rights under California law, please contact us at email@example.com or write to Trusted Counsel Ashley, LLC, 1349 West Peachtree Street, N.W., Suite 1525, Atlanta, GA 30309.
The Site may contain links to websites not operated by Trusted Counsel. This Notice does not apply to such third-party sites or to information collected by any third party, including through any content that may link to or be accessible from the Site. Trusted Counsel is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third-party websites, including those websites that we use for services such as accepting payments or scheduling appointments. For information on the privacy practices of these other third-party websites, please consult their privacy policies.
Trusted Counsel has implemented measures that are appropriate to protect your personal information from unintentional loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Even though Trusted Counsel does its best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of all personal information provided via the Site.
Legal Basis for Processing Your Personal Information
Trusted Counsel relies on various legal bases when we process your personal information. These legal bases depend on what personal information Trusted Counsel processes and for what purpose. Under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the processing activities described in this Notice are based on: (i) your consent (GDPR Article 6(1)(a)), to the extent personal information is collected by Trusted Counsel with your permission when you voluntarily provide it, including, for example, information you provide when you join a Trusted Counsel mailing list or when you register for an event; (ii) contract (GDPR Article 6(1)(b)), when, for example, you provide personal information in connection with an engagement letter or otherwise in connection with the services we provide to you; and (iii) legitimate interest (GDPR Article 6(1)(f)), when, for example, Trusted Counsel uses personal information to monitor and improve the Site and our services, to protect and defend our rights or those of our clients or other Users, and to promote our business.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information
Trusted Counsel may disclose personal information we collect, or you provide, as described in this Notice:
- if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Trusted Counsel, our clients, or others.
We will not share your personal information with any third party for their own marketing purposes except with your consent or if you request us to do so—for example, if you request publications produced by third parties or register for events that are held or sponsored by third parties.
Trusted Counsel may disclose aggregated or anonymized information that does not identify any individual without restriction.
Your personal information is processed in the United States, whose privacy laws may provide less protection than those in other countries. By submitting your personal information to Trusted Counsel, you agree to the transfer, storage, and processing of your information in the United States.
