What personal data do we collect via the site?

We collect different information depending on how you use the site and how you interact with us. 'Personal data' means any data which can be associated with you as an individual, either directly or indirectly.

  • • Contact data, such as your address and email and telephone details.

  • • Information relating to your organization, including business operations, priorities and legal issues.

  • • Technical data, such as your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access the site.

Special Categories of Personal Data

Except in relation to health data collected and assessed in respect of ensuring the safety of our employees and guests as part of our response to a public health crisis such as the Covid-19 pandemic, our site is not intended to be used for collecting, storing or transmitting 'special categories' of personal data, such as details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, health information, or criminal convictions and offences.

Where we do collect and process such personal data we do so for reasons of substantial public interest or to comply with our obligations in the field of employment and social security and social protection law, or for reasons of public interest in the area of public health, including but not limited to confirming vaccination status and identifying potential symptoms linked to COVID-19, to reduce the risk of spreading the disease in or through our offices.

How and why we use personal data

We will only use your information where:

a) Personal data you provide to us

When you sign up to one of our mailing lists, you will provide us with your identity, contact information, IP address, and your marketing and communications preferences. This data is collected via direct solicitation as well as by the use of email tracking codes embedded in our marketing emails.  We do not embed tracking codes in our regular daily email correspondence.

We may require potential visitors to our offices to complete Visitor Pre-Registration Forms and/or questionnaires that ask about vaccination status and potential symptoms of COVID-19.  If you complete these questionnaires or other questionnaires that we may invite you to fill in (such as Women in Business Hour questionnaires), we may ask you to provide information about yourself and/or your organization. Information requested in respect of the Visitor Pre-Registration Forms may include COVID- or other pandemic-related data about your health and vaccination status. Information requested in other questionnaires may include data about the ownership of the organization for which you work and its potential investors/partners. We may also ask about your and/or your organization’s business needs, priorities and concerns.

You will also provide us with personal data when you correspond with us, and if you apply for a position with the firm.

b) Personal data we collect automatically

We collect this data using cookies, beacons and similar technologies. We use Google Analytics to help us analyze user habits while visiting our site. The data gathered from cookies may be transmitted to Google servers in the United States.

The information will be used by Google only for the purpose of evaluating website use, creating website activity reports, and other services relating to website activity and internet usage on behalf of Hazel & Schwab. The IP address that your browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics, will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

We may also use any or all of the information above to administer and manage our business in general. If you feel that your interests and fundamental rights outweigh our business purposes, and that we should therefore stop processing your data, please let us know.

c) We need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation
In certain circumstances, we may need to retain or use your data to comply with regulations and/or the law.  This includes ensuring we do not have any conflicts of interest or any other regulatory restrictions which would prevent us from providing you with advice.
