LDiscovery Privacy Policy

LDiscovery, our business is built upon being entrusted with personal and confidential information. We are committed to personal data protection, whether required by law, agreement or simply civility. We encourage you to review the statements below explaining how we collect and use information you share with us.

Scope

This privacy policy is intended to cover the combined operations of LDiscovery, LLC and its subsidiary LDiscovery Tx, LLC.

Information We Receive From Clients

As an eDiscovery company, much of the data we collect and store is provided by clients rather than directly from individuals.  Any data received on behalf of clients is used strictly for the business purposes defined in the agreement between the client and LDiscovery. It is not shared with third parties unless otherwise agreed upon.

An individual who seeks access or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data provided to LDiscovery by a client should direct their query to that client.

An individual wishing to limit the use or sharing of their data should direct their query to that client.

Information About Visitors To Our Website

We gather general information about the use of our websites, such as which areas users visit most frequently and which services users access the most. We use only aggregated data which cannot identify an individual visitor to our site. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually create a better overall online experience. We may use this general information and also share it with our business partners so that they too may understand how this site is used.

How We Use Your Personal Information

You can browse our website without disclosing personal information about yourself. By “personal information” we mean any information that may be used to identify you, including, but not limited to, your first and last name, physical address, email address or other contact information.

If you choose to provide us with your personal information on an online registration form, we may use it to contact you via email, telephone, direct mail or other communication formats to provide you with information or services that you have requested. Should you wish to be contacted by us no longer, please send an email to the address listed on the bottom of this policy.

Resume Submission

If you choose to submit your resume/CV, we will collect personal information about you, such as your name, location and email address. If you supply a resume/CV, then you may also choose to provide us with details of your career history and other personal information such as address, telephone number, gender and nationality.

Disclosing & Retaining Information

We will not disclose the personal information that you provide, or details of your individual visits to this website, to any outside parties except as necessary for job applications or other recruitment services that you have requested, with your consent, or when we believe the law requires it. However, as described above, we may record general information about the use of our website and share it with our business partners.

LDiscovery, LLC is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).  LDiscovery may also be required to disclose an individual’s personal or confidential information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Data provided to LDiscovery will be retained only so long as is required for the purpose for which it was given.

In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield, LDiscovery, LLC is potentially liable.

  • Unauthorized access
  • Improper use or disclosure
  • Unauthorized modification or alteration
  • Unlawful destruction or accidental loss

All our employees and agents who have access to or are involved in the processing of personal information respect the confidentiality of personal information.

The Internet, nevertheless, is an open system. While we have in place the best defenses against unlawful access, we cannot guarantee that the personal information you submit will not be intercepted by others.

You should also be aware that our website may include links to external websites operated by other organizations. They may, like us, collect personal information from visitors to their site. We cannot guarantee the content or privacy practices of any external websites and do not accept responsibility for those websites.
