SRZ Privacy Policy

Last updated: July 1, 2021

This Privacy Policy sets forth the policies of Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP and Schulte Roth & Zabel International LLP (collectively, “SRZ,” “we,” “us” or “our”) with respect to collection and use of personal information. “Personal information,” as used in this Privacy Policy, means information that identifies, or directly relates to identifiable, individuals. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected about employees in their capacity as employees. If you are an employee and have questions about our employee privacy practices, please contact Denise Kaback, Director of Human Resources. 

SRZ is an international law firm, with offices located in the United States and the United Kingdom. As a provider of legal services, SRZ is committed to protecting the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. SRZ maintains appropriate technical and security arrangements in order to keep your personal information confidential and protect it against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration, in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time and will post the updated Privacy Policy here. We recommend and encourage you to visit our website periodically to view the most recent version of our Privacy Policy.

If you are a California resident, please read our Privacy Notice for California Consumers below.

Collection of Personal Information

SRZ may collect personal information about you directly from you or another person acting on your behalf. We will also collect personal information about you if it relates to your instructions, transactions between you and us, and the services that we provide to you, your employer, or another business or entity associated with you.

You may browse areas of our website or our applications that do not require entry of login credentials without actively entering personal information. However, SRZ may receive certain information automatically from your web browser or applications you use when you access our website or our applications, including, for example, IP addresses, other device identifiers, browser types, operating systems, access dates and times, referring and exiting URLs, etc.

We may ask you to provide personal information, including through forms you complete on various pages of our website or our applications. This may include providing your personal information in order to provide legal services to you, to register for SRZ Client Alerts or events, to register for newsletters or other updates, or to inquire about or apply for a job with SRZ.

In some circumstances, we may receive personal information about you from third parties, such as our service providers, regulatory or law enforcement agencies, your bank or other financial institutions or advisors, and agencies conducting background checks. We may also obtain personal information about you from publicly accessible sources of information, such as public databases, industry associations, social media, and online professional networks.

The categories of personal information we may collect will depend on the nature of our relationship with you or the services we provide, and the purpose for which information is collected. Such personal data may include the following: names, residential addresses or other contact details, signatures, nationality, date and place of birth, social security, national insurance or other tax identification numbers, photographs, copies of identification documents, bank account details, information about assets or net worth, credit history, criminal and administrative offences, funds’ details and their sources, educational information, such as transcripts, travel-related information or, in some cases, other sensitive information, such as certain special categories of personal data (e.g., information about health, political affiliations, or religious or philosophical beliefs) contained in relevant documents or materials.

Additionally, if you are a visitor to SRZ’s offices, we may collect personal information in connection with COVID-19, such as whether you have: (a) been in close or proximate contact in the prior 14 days with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19; (b) tested positive for COVID-19 in the prior 14 days; and/or (c) experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 in the prior 14 days. You may also have your temperature collected.

Our Use of Personal Information

We may use your personal information where applicable law permits us to do so, including for any of the following purposes:

  • To contact you and establish and administer the relationship between us;
  • To provide services to you, your employer, your consultants or advisors or other persons or entities associated with or engaged by you, and administer the matters on which we are instructed by our clients;
  • To contact you about legal updates, seminars or events, or SRZ developments and announcements that we believe may be of interest to you;
  • To send you newsletters or other updates to which you have subscribed;
  • To monitor and analyze our activities; and
  • To comply with applicable legal or regulatory requirements, including rules of professional conduct, anti-money laundering and sanctions regimes, and any COVID-19-related notifications.

SRZ will use one of the permitted grounds under applicable law to process your personal information. Such grounds include instances where you have given your consent or where your consent is not required under applicable law, such as where SRZ is required to comply with a legal obligation, or where SRZ, or a third party acting on our behalf, determines that it is necessary for our legitimate interests to collect and use your information.

The legitimate interests to collect your personal information may include any of the purposes identified above and any other purpose where SRZ, or a third party acting on our behalf, has determined that you have a reasonable expectation for SRZ or a third party, on our behalf, to collect or use your personal information for such purpose.

What Are the Consequences of Failing to Provide Your Personal Information?

Depending on the purpose for which your personal information is required, a refusal to provide SRZ with personal information may have various consequences, such as SRZ being unable to communicate with you, to provide our services to you, or to permit you to access our offices or other facilities. If your personal information is necessary for SRZ to carry out our anti-money laundering checks, failure to provide such information may result in the firm not being able to provide the representation. If SRZ has a reasonable suspicion of illegal activity, we may be required, under applicable law, to make a report to regulatory or enforcement agencies.

Sharing of Personal Information

We will only disclose your personal information outside SRZ in limited circumstances. Such circumstances include disclosures to our agents or service providers acting on our behalf and at our direction (“processors”), where we believe disclosure is necessary to provide a service that you have requested, or as otherwise authorized or directed by you. Where we transfer, or give access to, your personal information to our processors, we ensure that such processors have committed themselves to appropriate confidentiality and information security obligations.

Subject to compliance with applicable law and our professional obligations, we may share your personal information with the following:

  • Our affiliates;
  • Any person to whom SRZ has a right or obligation to disclose your personal information under applicable law, or any person where SRZ determines that disclosure is necessary to protect or defend our rights or property, including with regulators, courts of law, governmental, regulatory, or law enforcement agencies;
  • Our internet, IT, telecommunications and other relevant service providers, or law firm ranking agencies;
  • Any person or entity, as directed by you; or
  • Any person or entity, as directed by you, including as part of hiring and recruiting activities; or
  • Any person to whom SRZ transfers any of our rights or obligations under any agreement, or in connection with a sale, merger or consolidation of our business or other transfer of our assets, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, or who is otherwise deemed to be our successor or transferee.

Security of Personal Information and Retention Periods

SRZ maintains appropriate technical and organizational security procedures in order to keep your personal information confidential and protect it against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration, in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws.

SRZ will generally keep information about you for as long as necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected, as set forth in this Privacy Policy, or for such longer period if required under applicable law, or necessary for the purposes of SRZ’s other legitimate interests.

Additional Information for Residents of the EEA and United Kingdom

Given the global nature of our business, we operate systems that may make personal information collected in the United Kingdom or a country in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) accessible from our offices in the United States or other countries outside the United Kingdom or EEA (as relevant) (each, a “third country”). We may also transfer personal information to our offices in the United States, or service providers in a third country to enable us to provide legal services to you, or for our internal administration or compliance purposes. You should note that such third countries may not offer the same level of data protection as that afforded by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), including as it forms part of the law of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland by virtue of section 3 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019. Where we transfer personal data to such third countries, SRZ will ensure that such personal information receives appropriate protections, including having contractual undertakings in legal agreements with our processors, such as Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission. We have entered into Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers between our offices.

You may have certain rights under GDPR in respect of the personal information SRZ holds about you. These rights include the ability:

  • To request access to your personal information;
  • To request rectification of inaccurate or incomplete information;
  • To request erasure of your information (a “right to be forgotten”);
  • To restrict the processing of your information in certain circumstances;
  • To object to our use of your information, such as where we have considered such use to be necessary for our legitimate interests (e.g., in the case of direct marketing activities);
  • Where relevant, to request the portability of your information;
  • Where you have given consent to the processing of your personal information, to withdraw your consent; and
  • To lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
