This Privacy Policy sets forth our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data through our website at www.millernash.com (the "Site").

This Privacy Policy sets forth our policies with respect to information that is collected from you when you use the Services.

We automatically collect data using technologies such as cookies. A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device to allow the Site to recognize you or your device, to help provide functionality, and allow us to analyze Site usage. You may choose to decline or disable cookies or similar tracking technologies through your web browser or other tools, but doing so may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the Site or certain Services.

You may be able to decline or disable cookies and similar tracking technologies we use, such as those provided by Google or AddThis, by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please note, however, that we are not affiliated with and are therefore not responsible for, and do not endorse the content or practices, including privacy-related practices, of these third-party services.

  • To fulfill any other specific purpose for which you provide information;
  • In any other way we may describe when you provide the information; and
  • For any other purpose with your consent.

When and Why Is Your Information Disclosed?

We do not sell your personal data to third parties, and will not disclose it for third-party marketing purposes. We may disclose information that we collect from you, including personal data:
  • To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support the Services and our business (e.g., third parties that help us host and operate the Site and enable your sharing of content available on the Site, and third parties that perform analytics services for the Site), and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal data confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them;
  • To a successor or potential successor in the event of a proposed or actual merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets in which the personal data is among the assets transferred;
  • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it, but only to the extent it is necessary for that purpose;
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information, but only to the extent it is necessary for that purpose; and

We may also disclose your personal data:
  • To comply with any court order, applicable law, or legal process, including responding to any government or regulatory request;
  • To enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other terms that apply to your activities on or through the Services; and

Limitations on the Scope of This Privacy Policy

Third-Party Websites and Applications: We engage third-party service providers who may operate domains or applications accessible through the Services, such as the host of our blogs, LexBlog (collectively, the "Third-Party Services"). Any information collected through Third-Party Services is subject to the privacy policies of their operators, which may employ different data collection, use, disclosure, and security procedures than we employ. We are not responsible for the content or practices, including privacy-related practices, of Third-Party Services. The links from this Privacy Policy, the Site, or Services do not imply our review or endorsement of the Third-Party Services. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Attorney-Client Relationship: This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal data we may process in connection with any attorney-client relationship that may exist between us. That data will be handled under the terms of the contract between us (e.g., an engagement letter) and as you may otherwise consent.

Your Rights

The European Union's ("EU") General Data Protection Regulation and other applicable data protection laws provide certain rights for certain data subjects.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation, for example, you may be entitled to request and access details of the information we hold about you and how we process it. You may also have a right to have it corrected or deleted, to restrict our processing of that information, to have personal data relating to you transferred to another organization and, in some circumstances, to lodge a complaint regarding our processing of your personal data with a local data protection authority.

If you object to the processing of your personal data, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you now wish to withdraw that consent, please let us know. If you object or withdraw consent, please bear in mind that your objection or withdrawal could mean that you are unable to use the Services, and that we may be unable to perform other actions you request (see "How Do We Use Your Information?").

Finally, note that in some circumstances we may continue processing your personal data even after you have objected or chosen to withdraw your consent if we are required or otherwise permitted by law to do so, such as to exercise our legal rights or meet our obligations.

You may contact us regarding your rights at any time by e-mailing .

Other Information

Lawful Bases: We collect and process your personal data only when we have a lawful basis to do so. Lawful bases include your consent, the fulfillment of our contractual rights or obligations, complying with applicable law, and our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties (provided that processing your data for a legitimate interest does not outweigh your rights and freedoms). Examples of legitimate interests include (i) analyzing user data to manage, develop, and improve the Services for all users; (ii) providing you with access to the Services; (iii) engaging third-party providers to deliver certain features of the Services; and (iv) complying with record-retention laws or other legal obligations. You may withdraw your consent or object to a legitimate interest at any time by contacting us.

Data Retention Period: Personal data we collect will be retained for only as long as it is required (i) for the purpose for which it was collected; (ii) to be retained by law; or (iii) to address any issues that may arise at a later date. When your personal data is no longer required for these identified purposes, we will securely destroy, delete, or otherwise convert the personal data into an anonymous form. Generally, data collected automatically using technologies such as cookies is retained for either the duration of your visit to the Site or a longer period of time, but no more than two years from your last visit to the Site. 

Transfer of Data: If you provide personal data through the Services, you acknowledge and agree that your personal data may be transferred from your current location to our offices and servers located in the United States, and that other countries have deemed the laws of the United States to have inadequate data protection requirements. By using the Services, you consent to the processing, including storage, of your personal data in the United States. Where appropriate, we have agreements in place with data processors that include appropriate security measures, such as EU-approved standard contractual clauses or requirements that such processors are Privacy Shield certified, to protect your rights with respect to your data. Please contact us if you would like to request a copy of documents related to these security measures.

Do Not Track: Some browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want to be tracked. At this time, the Site does not respond to DNT signals.

Information from Children

We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13 and do not target our Services to children under 13. If you are under 13, you may not use the Services or submit any personal data through the Services. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided their personal data to us, please contact us and we will delete that information unless we have a legal obligation to retain it.

Data Security and Integrity

We take reasonable steps to protect the personal data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. These steps include internal reviews of our data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures, and employing physical, technical, and administrative security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We also restrict access to personal data to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our Services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free, and you therefore assume all related risks by disclosing personal data to us via the Internet.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

The Services may change from time to time. In the future, we may also change how we process personal data, on the Site and otherwise. As a result, at times it may be necessary for us to make changes to this Privacy Policy. Accordingly, we reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time and we will provide notice of any material changes through the Site or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes before they take effect. Your use of the Services after any changes or revisions to this Privacy Policy indicates your agreement with the terms of such revised Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date indicated below.
