Privacy Policy

Current as of August 27, 2018

XPAN Law Group, LLC (“XPAN”) takes a proactive stance on privacy and data security. It’s considered in everything we do, from managing complex databases to ESI and data integration. Rest assured that your data is in good hands. Please take a moment to review our Privacy Policy below.

At XPAN, we respect your privacy and know that you care about how your personal information is collected and used. This Privacy Policy discusses how XPAN collects, uses, maintains, and discloses information collected from our Website (www.xpanlawgroup.com).

We do reserve reserve the right to change the Privacy Policy at any time. But, we will notify of you any changes to our Policy and explain why we feel it necessary to make these changes.

We value transparency in everything that we do. And, since we are lawyers and understand that these documents can get a little “wordy,” we want to boil this all down to the main point:

we only collect what you give us, to use to respond to you or to provide you with services you ask us to provide. We do not sell your data, loan your data, or really do anything with your data beyond what you ask us to do. Frankly, data scares us.

The information provided below is meant to provide that transparency so that you can feel comfortable with how we approach data privacy and security.

Information Collected

When you contact us, XPAN may ask for information that allows us to contact you, validate the seriousness of your inquiry, request specific information related to the reason you have contacted us, or provide you with our newsletter. This information can include your name, email address, and phone number. We do not associate any of this information with other information, such as cookies and information from Tracking Software, which may be collected through our websites and business systems.

Use of Information

XPAN uses information supplied by you to contact you to respond to your inquiry or to provide you with services per your request. Unless you request us to provide this information to Third-Parties, we will not do so. While we are good at organizing our emails, we are not that good and require the help of some technology. So, we use third-party customer relations software to store and organize your information. However, that is solely to allow us to provide the services you requested.

Legal Requests for Information

In the event that XPAN is subject to demands for information, XPAN will comply as required by state, federal and international law. Demands for information include, but are not limited to, subpoenas, warrants, and civil discovery demands. Information covered by our Privacy Policy may be disclosed following such a request if XPAN determines that such a disclosure is necessary or required; or if it is necessary or required to protect your interests or our interests.

Data Confidentiality

Through normal business processes, we access volumes of highly confidential client data. XPAN utilizes strict data segmentation and confidentiality practices to keep this data secure.

Data Storage

XPAN utilizes cloud storage, computing, and sharing technologies. These technologies may be maintained by third parties such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon or others and may be stored in jurisdictions outside of the United States. Should our security team become aware of any potential security incident or breach, XPAN will take appropriate measures to ensure your data is secured and you are notified as soon as possible. At no time do any of the third-party storage providers have access to any personal information stored on its platform.

Data Security & Retention

Information collected by the technologies described in this Privacy Policy is protected by Google data encryption and security services. Google’s G Suite Security & Privacy information can be found at https://gsuite.google.com/learn-more/security-g-suite.html. Information kept by us in our business is protected using industry standard security measures.

More data, more problems: if we don’t need it, we don’t keep it.

We emphasize data minimization principles: as such, we will only keep and store your data for as long as necessary to provide the services you requested or to comply with a legal obligation.

EU Personal Data & Data Rights

XPAN embraces data privacy and is committed to operating a privacy oriented  environment — for all.

XPAN acknowledges that EU individuals have certain rights associated with the personal information maintained by XPAN. XPAN is committed to providing the protections under the GDPR to all personal data. Those rights include:

  • the right to request access to any of your personal data;
  • the right to request the rectification or correction of your personal data if it is inaccurate;
  • the right to request the erasure of your personal data so long as XPAN does not have a valid reason
  • to maintain that information;
  • the right to request restricted processing of your personal data;
  • the right to request the transmission of your personal data to another entity; and
  • the right to object to the processing of your personal data.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, or just have questions about these rights, please contact us at [email protected]. One of our team members will respond to you within a reasonable timeframe.

XPAN is not responsible for loss corruption or unauthorized acquisition and use of information covered by this Privacy Policy, or for any resulting damages, including unauthorized acquisition and use.

Sensitive Information

We do not collect sensitive information about you. If you provide it to us, we will inform you that it will be deleted from our databases immediately. Sensitive information is the worst.

‘Sensitive information’ includes personal information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of the individual. Again, please do not send this to us.

Third-Country Data Transfers

XPAN stores its data within the United States, Europe and in other global regions. Because of the ingenuity of technology, at any moment your data may be in multiple regions throughout the world.

If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

Third-Party Services and Products

We use third-party services and products to host our Website, provide our newsletter, and to support the services that we provide to you. To the extent that these services and products collect data on our behalf, the collection and processing of that data is covered by this Privacy Policy.

We try to only partner with products and services that we believe operate with a similar emphasis and respect for data privacy and security.

However, this Privacy Policy does not cover any third-party websites that are available through the XPAN website. We have no responsibility for how these third parties treat your information; if we have access to their privacy policies, we will provide them to you upon your request. For information on how third-parties collect, use, and protect personal information, please visit the specific third-party’s privacy policy.
