    4. Links to Other Sites

    Our Privacy Notices/Policies only cover the Squire Patton Boggs website. Our website, newsletters, email updates and other digital communications may contain links to and from other third-party websites. When you click on these links, you are exiting our website, and the personal data that you provide through such third-party websites is not subject to our privacy notice(s)/policies. If you follow any link to a third-party website, please note that that website will have its own privacy notice(s) which set out how your information is collected and processed by them. We recommend that you check the privacy notices/policies of each website you visit.  Some of these third parties may use applications that track your online activities across different websites and platforms over time.

    5. Google Analytics

    Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics works using cookies. Google Analytics cookies collect your IP address; however, because IP anonymization is used on this website, your IP address will be shortened (and therefore anonymized) as soon as technically possible and before it is stored or otherwise used in connection with Google Analytics. The anonymization process takes place within the European Union or the European Economic Area, except in exceptional cases, where your full IP address may be sent to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. We use the information collected by Google Analytics cookies to find out about how visitors use our website. Google will not combine the IP address sent by your browser in connection with Google Analytics with other data. You can prevent Google Analytics cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at google.com.

    6. Other Information

    Any personal data that we collect from the application of cookies are stored on servers that are hosted by our third-party provider in the United States. The international transfer of this data is subject to the EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses and a data processor agreement with the vendor. We retain personal data collected by means of cookies needed for personalized services where you have consented to the use of cookies for those purposes, and otherwise only for as long as necessary to aggregate personal data that we use for website performance and audience measurement.

    If you are an EU resident, you have certain rights in relation to any personal data that we process about you. These rights are set out in Section 7 of our EU Privacy Notice, which you can find here.
