Privacy Policy

Black, Ballard, McDonald, P.C. knows that the privacy of the personal information that we receive about you is important to you. We understand that you rely on us to protect the confidentiality and security of that information. The information that we collect about you is used only to provide the legal and related services that you request from us. Although the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Public Law 106-102, 15 U.S.C. 6802 is designed to protect the privacy of nonpublic personal information about consumers, as attorneys, we have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by this new law. This notice informs you of our privacy policy and describes how we treat the information that we receive about you.

Information We May Collect About You

We collect nonpublic personal information about you only in connection with providing you with the services that you request. The types of nonpublic personal information that we collect vary according to the services that we perform for you, and may include:

Information that we receive from you (such as your name, address, income, assets, social security information, and other financial or household information);

Information about your relationship and past history with us and others (such as the types of legal services we provide to you, your invoice balances and payment history); and

Information that we receive, with your authorization, from third parties such as accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, banking institutions and others.

How We Handle Your Information

We do not disclose any public or nonpublic personal information about you that you have provided to us to anyone outside of our firm, except as authorized by you or required by law. For example, with your consent, we may disclose personal information to a third-party contractor, such as an appraiser, accountant, or insurance representative who is assisting us in providing services to you. In addition, we will release information to the extent required by law or regulation. We do not sell client information to anyone or disclose client information to marketing companies.

How We Protect Your Information

We restrict access to public and nonpublic personal information about you that you have provided to us to those attorneys and staff members in our firm who need to know the information to provide services to you. All of our attorneys and employees are required to maintain the confidentiality of all nonpublic personal information about you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards to protect public and nonpublic personal information that you provide to us.
