Our Commitment to Your Privacy

Thank you for visiting the Firm’s website. The Firm is committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of visitors to its websites. This Privacy Policy describes:

  • how and why we collect certain information from you via the website and the online services provided through the website;
  • with whom we share such information;
  • how we store that information, including information as to how we secure the information;
  • how you can access and update such information; and

If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy or our information collection and use practices, please contact us using the information in the “Contact Us” section below.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

Non-personal Information: Like many websites, we may collect certain technical information about your use of the website, and generally, this is not information the Firm could use to identify you without reference to other information. For example, we may collect your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, the identity of your internet service provider (ISP), the number and duration of page visits, how you were directed to the website, and the number of clicks you make when you use the website. This does not include demographic information about you. We track and reference your usage information, in aggregation with the usage information of other visitors to the website, to better understand how effective our website is and how visitors interact with it. We may use third parties, such as Google and our website host, to provide analytics services based on this data. The analytics and the underlying data are generally only accessible to the Firm and its third-party providers.

In addition, some portions of our website may use session or persistent cookies. A cookie is a file that web servers place on an Internet user’s computer. Cookies are designed to store basic information about the user and transmit that information back to servers that recognize them. They may be used to measure visitor behavior on and in connection with a website, including through the transmission of usage information. A session cookie stays on your machine only so long as your browser is open and tuned to the site that placed the cookie. A persistent cookie remains on your machine after you log out of your account and will become active again when you return to the website. Some portions of our website use cookies as described below. You may be able to change your Internet browser settings to reflect your preference for accepting, storing, and/or deleting cookies.

Please note, do not track signals are not effective on our website.

  • Receiving Firm communications or publications. If you request an eNewsletter, a White Paper, or a subscription to either or a Blog, we use this information to send you the requested publications. The Firm or its service providers may use persistent cookies to identify you as a subscriber and continue to deliver content to you.
  • Asking for further information. You have the opportunity to provide feedback to us or make inquiries about us through the “Contact Us” link. We use this information to communicate with you as requested.

Sharing of Your Information

We may share your personal information with third parties in one or more of the following ways:

  • Third-party service providers, such as website hosts: We use third parties to host our website. These third parties may have access to your personal information submitted through the website consistent with the hosting of the site.
  • Third-party organizations that otherwise assist the Firm in providing goods, services, or information, including cloud storage providers in the case of the firm and client data.
  • Successor organizations. In the event the Firm undergoes a business transition (such as a merger or acquisition), we may transfer your personal information to the successor organization in such transaction. If material changes to the Firm’s privacy practices will occur as a result of the business transition, the Firm will post a notice on the website.
  • Auditors and other professional advisers.
  • Law enforcement or other government and regulatory agencies or other third parties as required by, and in accordance with, applicable law or regulation.

We do not share or sell personally identifiable information to third parties for their commercial marketing purposes.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as permitted or required by law or regulation.

The information which we may collect from you may be transferred to, stored, and processed by us in a destination outside the United States and countries whose laws concerning data privacy may not be comparable to those in EEA jurisdictions, but will only be done so in accordance with applicable laws.

California Privacy Rights

The State of California has established its own unique regulations that apply to California residents.

As of its effective date of January 1, 2020, We are also compliant with the California Consumer Privacy Act Of 2018, Cal. Civ. Code §§ 1798.100 Et Seq. (CCPA).

Any California resident may request, free of charge, the personal information We have collected or stored about themselves or about a member of their household. For security purposes, We reserve the right to ask for verification of Your identity and proof of your California residency at the time of your request.

Any California resident has a right to request the personal data We have collected, or request deletion of the personal data We have collected, including but not limited to:

  • Any personally identifying information, such as a real name, alias(es), mailing or resident address, IP address, email address, account name, biometrics, or any other data that could uniquely identify a California resident; and
  • Commercial information, including products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, search history, interactions with Our website, or any other purchasing or browsing history of Our site and/or offer(s); and
  • Site comments made publicly or privately; and
  • Geolocation data; and
  • Professional or employment-related information; and
  • Education information.

We reserve the right to collect any of the above data on California residents and their households.

We may, from time to time, share or swap email lists we maintain for purposes of a particular case. We will never sell an email list to anyone.  However, California law may consider “sharing or swapping” an email list to be the same thing as “selling” an email list.  Regardless, any California resident can email us at info@mcbride-law.com to explicitly request to opt-out of any such sharing or swapping of data.

California residents also have the option to request full deletion of their account and any data We have collected and associated with them.

We agree to comply with any data request or deletion made pursuant to the CCPA in a reasonable timeframe, during normal business hours and excluding holidays or Our pre-scheduled time off.

Sensitive Data

We request that You do not submit any sensitive data to Us, via public postings, email correspondence with Us, or any other method, including social security number, health data, genetic data, or information related to Your ethnic origin, religious beliefs, or criminal history. If You do send Us this information, then by doing so You are consenting to Our use, storage, and processing of this information in accordance with this privacy policy.

How We Store Information Collected from You

We store your personal and non-personal information with the hosting providers and cloud storage providers discussed above. Our administrative departments may store application information in accordance with firm retention practices.

The Firm will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with our normal procedure, this policy, and all applicable laws.

The Firm uses reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your personal and non-personal information, online and offline. Because of the nature of our website, we do not currently encrypt any transmissions to or from the website in any manner. If you are uncomfortable with the unencrypted transmission of personal information described herein, please do not submit information to us through the website.

Our employees, including contract employees, are generally subject to restrictions that limit their use of information obtained from the Firm to the business purpose of providing our services to you.

However, while we take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of the website and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Owners of personal information are generally advised to take steps to keep their personal information safe to the extent possible.

How to Access and Update Your Personal Information

At any time, you may contact the Firm to request that we:

  • provide you with a copy of any personal data pursuant to Article 15 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) and/or Section 45 of the Data Protection Act 2018 (“DPA”) (to the extent that each of the GDPR and DPA applies to you); and/or
  • make changes to your personal information (including deleting such information).

If you request that the Firm update or otherwise modify your information, we will amend your personal information within a reasonable time after your request. To request modifications of personal information that the Firm possesses about you, please contact us using the information in the “Contact Us” section below.

However, please note that, after your personal information is changed, the Firm will continue to have the right to store all personal information collected from you through the website (including personal information which is no longer in active use due to its amendment in accordance with this Section) in our archives and to use and disclose such personal information for certain purposes permitted or required by applicable laws, including as we deem necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, to enforce our rights, or to protect the safety and security of our website or other users.
