Piper Larson may use the information you provide to us to customize advertising and content that we present to you, to contact you concerning specials and new service offerings, to coordinate and implement the payment of fees that you may owe as a customer of Piper Larson, and to coordinate and implement the payment of fees that may be owed for the purchase of certain good or services through our website.

• Piper Larson must share the information in order to provide a product or service that you have requested and/or purchased from us; or
• Piper Larson is required to respond to subpoena, court orders or other legal process requiring such disclosure.
Piper Larson collects and stores information and data that the Website is configured to harvest, as you view and download certain pages and files within the Website.

Managing Your Information
You are entitled to request access to and correction of all your personal data collected by us via this Website, as well as to require us to delete your data from our records if you no longer want us to maintain it. You can make such a request or a related inquiry by sending an email to this address. Piper Larson reserves the right, but does not have any obligation, to save and maintain any information that you provide to us. You may choose not to receive unsolicited marketing material from Piper Larson and you have the right to request deletion of your contact information from our marketing and email lists.
In the event that you publish any content through our Website that may be viewed and accessed by third parties (e.g., through messaging boards, comment areas, etc.), such third parties may collect, copy, modify, distribute, or otherwise exploit your content without your permission. You hereby agree that Piper Larson has no control over, and will not be responsible for, the extent to which such third parties collect, copy, modify, distribute, or otherwise exploit your content.
Piper Larson employs reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment, in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. However, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons.
Because of the international nature of the services and products provided by this website and the nature of Piper Larson’s business, personal data may, subject to applicable law, be transferred internationally throughout the world. This may mean that personal data are transferred to countries which do not have laws or regulations which protect personal data, such as the United States, where the server for this website is located. We use reasonable measures to limit the disclosure of the data you provide to us only to certain staff within Piper Larson and its affiliates (i.e., staff whose job it is to process your inquiries or otherwise to administer the website, and those staff involved in the provision of Piper Larson services and products which may be of interest to you) and to require that they process the data only for the purposes identified in this policy.
For the avoidance of doubt, and without limiting the foregoing, in view of the insecure nature of electronic mail and Internet-mediated communications, Piper Larson cannot make any representations, warranties, or guarantees regarding the security of your personal information and, therefore, any provision of your personal information to Piper Larson shall be at your own risk.
Modifications to this Policy
Piper Larson may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how Piper Larson gathers, processes, uses or discloses your personally identifiable information, Piper Larson will post such changes on our Website. Your continued use of the Website shall constitute your acceptance of such modifications or amendments.
The Website may include links, images, and/or video content that relate to or are associated with one or more third parties, such as advertisers, affiliates, or others (“Third Party Ads”). The Third Party Ads may be configured to harvest certain personal information, when such Third Party Ads are selected, viewed, or downloaded within the Website. Piper Larson has no control over, and hereby disclaims any responsibility for, the use or security of your personal information that is harvested through such Third Party Ads. If you wish to learn more about the terms and conditions that apply, if any, to your personal information when such Third Party Ads are selected, viewed, or downloaded within the Website, you must contact the third party that is associated with the applicable Third Party Ads.
