Information that can be collected if you visit my website or if you contact me
My website may collect “Non-Personal Information”.
“Non-Personal Information” includes information that cannot be used to personally identify you, such as anonymous usage data, general demographic information I may collect, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit and your mouse clicks. I may also track information provided to me by your browser or by any mobile application when you view or use the Service, such as the website you came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Service, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. I use this information for, among other things, the operation of the Service, to maintain the quality of the Service and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Service. I track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from the servers of my website host and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables me to collect Non-Personal Information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing my Services, both on a singular and aggregate basis. Both persistent and session cookies may be used; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Service may not work properly.
“Personal Information” is collected only if you submit such Personal Information in any contact form on my website or provide such information to me otherwise. “Personal Information” includes information, either on its own or together with other information, that can reasonably be used to personally identify you.
As a law firm, I regularly receive personal data as part of my professional activities. I may collect your Personal Information:
as part of my client onboarding procedure;
when you or your organization seek legal advice or employment from me;
when you or your organization offer or provide services to me as vendor;
when you browse or interact with my website(s) or use any of my online services;
when you email me or provide such data to me in other circumstances.
Ordinarily, you will have provided any such data to me. But in some cases, I may collect data about you from a third-party source, such as government or credit reporting agencies, an information or service provider or from public records.
Personal Information that I may collect and use may include:
Basic information, such as your name, your employer, your title or position;
Contact information, such as your physical address, email address and phone number(s);
Financial information, such as bank account details;
Technical information, such as your IP address and other information collected from your visits to my website or in relation to materials and communications I send to you electronically;
Information you provide to me for the purpose of attending meetings and events;

Personal information provided to me by or on behalf of my clients or employees or generated by me in the course of providing legal services and employment, which may include special categories of data;
Details of your visits to my office; and
Any other information which you may provide to me.
How I use the information
Personal Information: I only use your Personal Information in connection with my ordinary professional activities (including the fulfilment of my legal or regulatory obligations). I process the Personal Information you provide to me when communicating with me (such as the name, email and postal address, phone number, language preference, job title, business affiliations, and content of the communication). The Personal Information may relate to you as well as to your employees and agents. In some instances, I will supplement the Personal Information by information I retrieve from public sources, such as online media or employer websites, for the purpose of confirming your current professional position or obtaining further information to enable me to effectively communicate with you. I use Personal Information for the purposes of providing legal advice or other services and managing my relationship with you, as well as communicating with you, whether in connection with the provision or procurement of goods and services or as your employer or former employer, including processing payments, accounting, auditing, billing and collection and related support services, to send you newsletters and invitations, to maintain my list of contacts or to provide you with other information you may request from me. Personal Information will only be used by me and my technology suppliers (who are obliged to protect your Personal Information to the same extent as I am).
I do not sell or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to third parties (except as I may be required under applicable law). I may also need to transfer personal data to third parties, including third parties based outside Switzerland or the EU, for example (but not limited to) subcontractors, other counsel and accountants and third parties involved in your matters.
Personal Information will be saved until it is no longer reasonably required for the permitted uses or you withdraw your consent, provided that I am not legally required or otherwise permitted to continue to hold such data. In particular, I may retain your Personal Information for an additional period of time to the extent that deletion would require me to overwrite my automated disaster recovery backup systems or to the extent that I deem it necessary to assert or defend legal claims during any relevant retention period.
How I protect information
I restrict the use and access to your Personal Information to those who have an absolute need-to-know.
I implement reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices in order to protect your Personal Information and ensure that such Personal Information is not accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such precautions. By using my Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
