At KrolLDiscovery, 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.
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 KrolLDiscovery. 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 KrolLDiscovery 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.

Should you wish to be contacted by us no longer, please send an email to the address listed on the bottom of this policy.
If you choose to submit your resume/CV, we will collect personal information about you, such as your name, location and email address.

However, as described above, we may record general information about the use of our website and share it with our business partners. If this practice should change in the future we will update this policy and provide individuals with opt-out choice prior to sharing their data with non-agent third parties.
