PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy applies to all information collected through our website and any related services, sales, marketing, or events. This privacy policy does not apply to information provided to us in the course of our attorney-client relationship or protected by other confidentiality obligations, including attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine.

DATA COLLECTION AND USE

CW Law will not sell, rent, or trade any of your information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

When you visit out site, we may use cookies and other tracking technologies (including those provided by selected third parties) to collect and store general information about you and the way you use our site. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default and by using this website you consent to our use of cookies. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove and/or reject cookies. If you choose to remove and/or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our website. We may also collect and use information provided directly by you, such as through a form on our site or by e-mail, which is generally used to contact you or to send you additional information. The provision of such information does not create an attorney-client relationship.

We may disclose your information when we are legally required to do so to comply with applicable law, governmental requests, a judicial or regulatory proceeding, court order, or other legal process or requirement, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena (including in response to public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements).

We may disclose your personal information to related entities and/or to third party service providers and contractors who perform services for us or on our behalf and require access to such information to do that work. Our third-party service providers are obligated to secure and keep confidential the information we provide. Examples of third-party service providers include co-counsel and other special consultants, information technology suppliers, payment processing providers, hosting service providers, analytics providers, joint marketing or event providers, and security providers.

We may also disclose your information where we believe it is necessary to: (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding potential violations of our policies, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person, or illegal activities; (2) comply with the ethical obligations of attorneys licensed to practice in Oregon and Washington (including the mandatory reporting of child abuse and elder abuse); (3) protect our rights, privacy, safety or property (including the rights of individual attorneys, staff, or our third-party service providers); or (4) evidence in litigation in which we are involved.

SECURITY AND DESTRUCTION OF INFORMATION

CW Law uses measures we believe are commercially reasonable to secure your personal information, including consulting with technical and security advisors from time to time. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that these measures will be sufficient to protect against all efforts to gain unauthorized access to the information and transmission of personal information to and from us it as your own risk. Unfortunately, there is no way to ensure the internet, or any information on a computer connected to it, is 100% secure.

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete it or, if this is not possible, then we will securely store your personal information until deletion or other destruction is possible.
