Burford is committed to protecting the privacy of Internet users who visit our web site (the “Site”).
The information gathered by Burford from this Site falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our Site and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our Site.
When using this Site, you may choose to provide us with information to help us serve your needs. For example, you may provide us your e-mail address or other contact details to request information or materials. Any Personal Information that you send us will be used only for the purpose indicated on the Site or in this policy. We may also use your information to provide you with information about other services and products that are offered by Burford that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to be contacted by us, please see the section titled “Opting-Out” below.
If you participate in a Burford discussion forum or chat room, you should be aware that the information you provide there will be made available to Burford employees and other users of the service. Also, please recognise that the individual forums and chat rooms may have additional rules and conditions. Each participant (including any Burford employee or representative)’s opinion on a forum or chat room is his or her own and should not be considered as reflecting the opinion of Burford.
In the normal course of our business, information may be shared within Burford entities and may be used both for research and statistical purposes and crime prevention. It may be transferred to any country, including countries outside the European Economic Area, for any of these purposes and for systems administration. It may also be used to provide our clients with information about products and services that we believe could be of interest, by post, by telephone, e-mail, or other means.
Agents and Service Providers. We sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions or services on our behalf, such as hosting this Site, sending e-mail messages and making phone calls on our behalf. They may have access to Personal Information, such as addresses, needed to perform their functions, but are restricted from using it for purposes other than providing services for Burford.
Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets or businesses. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if either a Burford entity itself or substantially all of a Burford’s entity’s assets were acquired, your Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets.
Burford may preserve and has the right to disclose without your prior permission any information about you or your use of this Site if Burford has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) Protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Burford, employees, other users of this Site, or the public; (b) Enforce the terms and conditions that apply to use of this Site, or (c) Respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties. We may also disclose information as we deem necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.
This Site may provide an opportunity to submit your curriculum vitae or an application form to us or apply for a position through this Site. If you submit information for such purposes, we will use (which may include transferring) the Personal Information you provide to evaluate your qualifications and contact you regarding any positions at Burford in which we believe you may be interested.
You must be at least 18 years old and possess the legal authority to form legally binding contracts under applicable law to use this Site and the services provided on it. Burford does not knowingly collect Personal Information from those under the age of 18 nor are our services directed in any way towards minors.
