We may receive information about you in connection with a request from you and/or providing legal services to you.

We use reasonable precautions to keep the information that is disclosed to us secure. We may provide Personal Information and/or Browsing Information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other businesses or persons for the purpose of processing such information on our behalf. We require that these parties agree to process such information in compliance with our Policy, and we use reasonable efforts to limit their use of such information and to use other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. The use of your information by one of our trusted business partners may be subject to that party’s own Privacy Notice.

Also, both Fox Rothschild and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Web Properties and the third party site or service.
