Mayer Brown is committed to respecting your data privacy. We act in accordance with applicable data privacy laws when collecting and using personal information provided to us or which we have obtained from visits to our websites and online services.

This privacy policy explains our information practices in relation to personal information. If you have any further queries, there are a number of regional contacts listed below who can assist.

When Our Policy Applies and How We Use Your Information

This privacy policy applies to our websites, collaboration sites, blogs, apps and other digital media mobile applications and online services, electronic and hard copy records, responses to emails, alerts, invitations, other forms of communication and records. Any legacy data transferred to a successor Mayer Brown entity will also be treated in accordance with this privacy policy.

We may retain information about you for the purposes of providing legal advice if you are a client, if you have a relationship with a client of Mayer Brown or if a third party has provided information about you in order to obtain legal advice.

We may hold information about you for the legitimate purposes of promoting our business, if you request information about our services or indicate that you have an interest in receiving communications on legal topics, respond to invitations to events, or comment on our blogs or social networks. Based on your choices and behavior, we may also identify further products, services, legal topics and events about which you may wish to know more. We may also analyze your usage of our websites and other online services in order to improve your experience and our offering.

We retain personal information for the functioning of our business and its operations, to fulfill our legal and regulatory obligations, to handle complaints, to monitor our business and compile statistical data for analysis or to facilitate an acquisition, merger, restructuring, sale or other transaction involving all or any portion of the business associated with Mayer Brown.

Transferring and Sharing Your Information

Mayer Brown is a global organization. Your personal information is stored on servers located in different international jurisdictions, and your personal information may be processed by Mayer Brown worldwide for business or administrative purposes. Information held in hard copy is stored onsite or at secure locations.

Within Mayer Brown, we may transfer personal data outside of the European Economic Area. In doing so, we will ensure a level of data protection equal to that which applies in the European Economic Area.

We will not sell your personal data to third parties for their commercial purposes. However, we may provide personal data to third parties that perform services for us solely for our use and benefit in accordance with this policy. We also may provide personal information to third parties in order for them to perform services on behalf of a client or to provide services to Mayer Brown. On occasion, Mayer Brown may also be required to disclose personal information by a regulator, court or authority.

Use of Online Identification Technologies

We use online identification technologies such as cookies on Mayer Brown websites, collaboration sites, blogs, apps and other digital media ("Websites"). "Cookies" are small text files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing a more customized website experience. When you visit a site that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your computer. The next time you visit that site, your computer checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant (that is, one containing the site name) and sends the information contained in that cookie back to the site. The site then recognizes that you have been there before and, in some cases, tailors what appears on screen to take account of that fact.

You can access our Cookie Policy here.

Confidentiality and Security

We take reasonable precautions to ensure that personal information remains confidential and we have reasonable security procedures regarding the storage and disclosure of personal information. We also require our service providers to use personal information on a confidential basis solely to provide the specified services to us and otherwise to comply with this privacy policy and applicable legislation.

How Long is Your Personal Information Retained?

Mayer Brown has document retention and destruction policies relating to data which differ according to the geographical region, practice area/business support team, the nature of the information, its format and type of documentation. Please contact us for further information.

Basis for Processing Your Personal Information

We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:

  • When we need to perform a contract.
  • When we need to comply with a legal obligation.
  • When it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

Data Inquiries and Access to Information

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking the appropriate boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise that right at any time by contacting us.

Mayer Brown wants to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. If you believe the information we hold is inaccurate or no longer current, please contact us so that we can remove or correct the information as appropriate.

If you are in the European Union or your data is processed by us in the European Union, Hong Kong or Japan, data protection legislation gives you rights to access information held about you and to rectify such information. Data protection laws in Europe also give individuals certain rights to have personal information erased. If you wish to exercise your data privacy rights, make a complaint, ask a question or make a suggestion, please contact us as explained below.
