Your personal information is collected and controlled by Hatch Henderson Fivel, LLC. (“HHF”) which has remote operations in Orange County, CA, and Westfield, New Jersey. HHF’s head office is located at 18851 Bardeen Ave, suite 210, Irvine CA 92612.

We collect personal information on line, from publicly available resources such as law firm websites, in face to face meetings and telephone conversations, from questionnaires, by email and in writing.

We routinely collect some of the following personal information from you: name, address, email, mobile phone/cell, landline, bar number, social security number, employment history, board memberships, educational background, association memberships, practice details, client information, personal opinions and areas of expertise.

Website Cookies

We do not use any information collecting or tracking cookies on our site. However, if you choose to submit a request through our website, your name, email address, and any information you voluntarily provide will be routed through our internal email system and may be stored in our candidate tracking database. If you wish to have this information removed, please email info@hhflegalsearch.com.


We will use your personal information for a number of purposes including, but not limited to, undertaking candidate research, to build our knowledge of the legal market and the available talent resource, to provide personalized career guidance and advice throughout a candidate’s career, and to facilitate the lateral partner and associate recruitment process.


If we need to process your personal information for a purpose which is different from or incompatible with that for which it was originally collected, we will provide you in advance with information on that other purpose.

Marketing

We will only send you marketing emails if you give us your consent or if you have already agreed to be on one of our mailing lists. Every marketing email we send you will give you the option to opt-out of receiving any further communication from us.

Protecting Your Personal Information

For the purposes of data protection legislation, the legal grounds for our processing your personal information is that the processing is necessary to our legitimate interests or those of a third party where they are not overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms. Our legitimate interests include provision of services to the legal sector which are essential to the lateral attorney recruitment process and required by law firms.

We will only share your personal information with your expressed authorization or if we are required by law to do so. During candidate representation, we will share your information with business partners and vendors working on our behalf who comply strictly with our instructions and have in place the appropriate organizational and technical safeguards.

We will retain your personal information in our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity or purpose described in this notice or as long as is prescribed by law.

We are committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure or loss of your personal information, we have put in place the appropriate organizational and technical safeguards to ensure the security of the personal information we collect, including appropriate levels of encryption, data back-up and access-control.

You will not be subject to decisions which will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making, including profiling, unless we have a lawful basis for doing so and we have notified you. We do not envisage that any decisions will be taken about you using automated means, however we will notify you if this position changes.

Your Rights

By law you have the right to:

Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully;

Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;

Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below);

Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes;

Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;

Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

Notice: In the United States you have the right to complain to the Department of Commerce, Federal Communications Commission or Better Business Bureau.

Withdrawing Consent

Where the basis for processing of your personal data is your clear, informed and unambiguous consent, such consent can be withdrawn by you at any time. We will cease processing your personal information immediately, however this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing based on your consent before it was withdrawn.

Notice of Change of Terms

We may need to make changes to this notice to comply with legal or data processing developments. If we change this notice we will provide information on our web site enabling visitors to review the changes. Any significant change to our use of your personal information will be communicated to you and you will be able to decide whether you agree to the new use.
