Gardere takes your privacy very seriously. Gardere will protect your non-public personal information disclosed to Gardere in accordance with the terms of this notice. Gardere reserves the right to amend this notice from time to time.
Notice to Clients and Former Clients.
Pursuant to applicable laws and regulations, each law firm that provides advice with respect to personal financial matters is required to inform its clients of the law firm's policies with respect to the disclosure of non-public personal information. Typically, Gardere collects non-public personal information from its clients directly. Gardere does not disclose any non-public personal information of its clients or former clients to third parties except as required by law or as authorized by the client or former client. Gardere protects the non-public personal information of its clients and former clients by maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our obligations under applicable professional standards and rules of ethics. Although the laws and regulations referenced above establish rules regarding the collection, use, confidentiality, and protection of non-public information, they do not limit the attorney-client privilege or the attorney's duty to protect the confidentiality of a client's information. Accordingly, in circumstances where applicable laws might allow disclosure of the non-public personal information of a client or former client, Gardere will continue to follow the stricter non-disclosure rules imposed upon us by the attorney-client privilege and applicable professional standards and rules of ethics.
