Privacy Policy

The Quarles & Brady LLP Privacy Policy (this “Privacy Policy”) is designed to tell you about the type of information we collect when you visit quarles.com (“our website”) and to explain the manner in which we collect, store, maintain and protect that information.

Information we collect

When you visit our website you may provide us with three types of information: personal information you voluntarily disclose through website features, aggregate or statistical use information collected as you browse our website, and information you voluntarily provide whenever communicating electronically with us or our employees or attorneys.

Personal information

We offer a number of features through our website for your convenience such as (i) registration forms; (ii) online job applications; and (iii) contact forms. Whenever you choose to use these features, you may disclose “personal information” including your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, and work or educational history. In order to serve you, we collect and store this personal information on an individual basis.

Website use information

Our website also utilizes standard technology to read and write “cookies” and to generate web server logs. These technologies collect information about your use of our website. This information may include the date and time of visits, your internet protocol address, the pages you view on our site, time you spent at our website, information about your web browser and operating system, and location of the website visited just before our website. None of this information is directly associated with any personal information you provide to us and we make no attempt to relate such information to your personal information.

Storage of information

We store the information that we collect on servers located in the United States. The European Union has deemed that such storage may not provide “adequate” data protection. If you are not willing to have your personal information stored in the United States, please do not provide it to Quarles & Brady.

E-mail and other electronic communication

If you send us any electronic communication, including e-mail, we may retain your e-mail message together with any attachments, your email address, and our responses. We apply similar policies and procedures for our electronic communications that we use for information received by mail, facsimile and telephone.

How we use that information

We use personal information and information obtained by electronic communication solely for our own business, educational, social and recruiting activities and to provide you with exceptional customer service.

We will not sell, rent or lease any of your personal information.

If you would like to update, review or correct your personal information, or opt out of receiving marketing or other information from Quarles & Brady, please contact us at privacy@quarles.com. We may charge you a fee to provide a copy of your personal information maintained by us.

We may use the aggregate or statistical website use information for security and maintenance purposes to improve our website and better serve our visitors.

How we protect that information

Because we value your privacy, we are dedicated to protecting the personal information you provide to us by adhering to the following procedures.

Our business practices

We review our business practices for compliance with this policy and the law regarding security, confidentiality and accuracy of our information. We take reasonable actions to ensure that our security practices, whether electronic or physical, protect your personal information.

Access to information

We limit our employees’ access to your personal information, and we restrict any use or disclosure of personal information to authorized individuals, processes or transactions.

Required disclosure of personal informationWe may disclose information when legally compelled to do so and when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

Sharing information with outside partiesAny service providers with access to your information are subject to reasonable obligations of confidentiality and non-disclosure.

In general, our service providers do not have access to your personal information, and we do not share any personal information with them. However, from time to time, during the course of normal business activities, it may be necessary for us to share your personal information. We do not sell your personal information to any third parties.

Revising this agreement

Our website, the Internet and the law are all constantly changing and, as a result, we may revise this Privacy Policy in order to respond to those changes, without notice. We will post the revised Privacy Policy on our website.
