Privacy Policy

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Affiliates (collectively, "Skadden, Arps," "Skadden," the "firm," "we," "us" or "our") welcomes you to the Skadden, Arps Alumni website (the "Alumni website"). When you visit the Alumni website, it is important for you to understand what information we collect about you and what we do with that information. Your visit to the Alumni website is subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions.
 

1. Information Collection and Use


We collect information about you and other alumni in a number of ways. For example, when you left the Firm, you may have provided us with personally identifiable information about you. We may also ask you to provide us information about you or other alumni on-line through the Alumni website.
 
When you submit your personally identifiable information on the Alumni website, you will be asked whether you consent to the processing and transfers of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you would prefer that we not collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information. When you submit personally identifiable information about another alum, we will contact that alum to verify the information and obtain his or her consent to use such information.
 
We have used and will continue to use the information you provide us to create and update our alumni newsletter, the "In the News" area of the Alumni website, and the on-line and print versions of our alumni directory, to send you news about the Firm, and otherwise to foster communication among alumni and between alumni and the Firm. If you prefer that your personally identifiable information not appear in our on-line and/or print directories or prefer not to receive future communications from us, please see Section 9 below.
 
We will only publish your home contact information in our on-line and print directories if we have no business contact information in our records and we have obtained your prior consent.
 
Except as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we will not sell, rent or transfer your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent. We may, however, use the information you provide in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans. We may also collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning our alumni and their use of the Alumni website, such as information regarding which of our pages are most popular.
 
We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.
 

2. Cookies and Log Files


We may place a "cookie" on your computer's hard drive when you log on to the Alumni website. This cookie is a piece of data that enables us to verify that you are an authorized user of the Alumni website. The cookie will be stored on your computer's hard drive until you log off from the Alumni website, unless your browser preferences are set otherwise.
 

3. Third Parties


We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf in relation to the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy. Examples include data analysis firms, webhosting companies, and fulfillment companies (e.g., companies that coordinate mailings). Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose. Such third parties may be located in countries both inside and outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). Although countries outside the EEA may not require the same level of data protection as countries within the EEA, we require these third parties to adhere to procedures that are at least as restrictive as the procedures we follow ourselves with respect to your personally identifiable information, including this Privacy Policy.
 

4. Links


The Alumni website may contain links to or from other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of other websites you link to from the Alumni website or otherwise visit.
 

5. Security


We implement various security measures to protect the security of your personal information, both on line and off line. Your personal information may be stored at facilities located across the world and not necessarily within the EEA. If you have any questions about the security of the Alumni website, you can send an e-mail to alumni@skadden.com.
 

6. Business Transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or otherwise transfer certain of our assets. In such transactions, user information, including personally identifiable information, is generally one of the transferred business assets, and by providing your personal information to us you agree that your data may be transferred to such parties in these circumstances.
 

7. Changes to this Privacy Policy


We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we decide to make any changes to our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised policy here.
 

8. Updating Your Information


You have the ability to review, update and correct the personally identifiable information you provide us. You can change your personally identifiable information at any time by clicking here or e-mailing us at alumni@skadden.com.
 

9. Choice/Opt-Out


At the Alumni website, we provide you the opportunity to exclude your personally identifiable information from future on-line and/or print versions of our directory. You may change your preferences with respect to inclusion in our future directories by clicking here or e-mailing us at alumni@skadden.com. We also provide you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving future communications from us. You may change your preferences with respect to such communications by clicking here, clicking the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any e-mail you receive from us, or e-mailing us at alumni@skadden.com.
