No Lawyer-Client Relationship
Subject to the Engagement Letter, please note that Renno & Co enters into lawyer-client relationships with its clients only pursuant to certain policies and procedures unrelated to the Site, including the execution of an engagement letter, a screen for conflicts of interest, and other Renno & Co policies or rules of the Bar Associations in the provinces in which we maintain offices. You agree that your access and use of the Sites, including the submission of information to us through the Sites, does not create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Renno & Co.
If you wish to inquire about Renno & Co’s legal services and how you might become a client of Renno & Co, please follow the instructions in the Engagement Letter or please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How we Collect and Use Information
Renno & Co collects the following categories of information from you through the Site:
Personal Information. You may use and access the Sites without providing us with any Personal Information. However, we may invite you to voluntarily submit certain Personal Information, such as your name, physical address, email address, and phone number. Certain forms on the Sites may also ask you to submit optional information about your company that we may link to other Personal Information we collect from you, such as a company name, entity type and size, number of fundraising rounds completed, and answers to qualitative questions about your company. We will only use this Personal Information (i) for the purposes explicitly described to you at the time you provided us with the information; (ii) to respond to your inquiries; (iii) to evaluate a prospective lawyer-client relationship with you and what legal services we may be able to provide you; (iv) to send you newsletters, publications, and other communications that may be of interest to you; (v) for internal business analytics, such as understanding the demographics of visitors to our Site; (vi) in order to execute a mandate that you have or shall confer to us; or (vii) to create Aggregate Information (defined below) that, after being aggregated and anonymized, can no longer be used to identify you.
Tracking Technologies. Renno & Co and its third-party vendors (including Google Analytics, which provides additional privacy notices here) may use Tracking Technologies, such as cookies and pixel tags, to collect Usage Information. “Cookies” are small files that are saved onto your device or browser through your web browser that allows us to collect certain Usage Information, and “pixel tags” are tiny graphics with unique identifiers that are embedded on the Sites that allow us to collect certain Usage Information. Tracking Technologies do not, by themselves, collect Personal Information; however, we may use Tracking Technologies to, for example, identify that the device you are using has accessed certain parts of the Sites and may associate that information with Personal Information you have voluntarily provided us. Please note that you have choices with respect to the use of Tracking Technologies and may, in some instances, disable them. Please see “Managing Your Information”, below, for more information.
Aggregate Information. We may use the information we collect to create “Aggregate Information”, which is aggregated and anonymized information that cannot be used to identify any natural person, in order to develop statistics and analytics about our Sites. Though Aggregate Information may be derived from Personal Information, it is not Personal Information because it cannot be used to identify you or any natural person.
How We Share Information With Third Parties
Information Security and “Do Not Track”
Renno & Co uses industry-standard technical and organizational safeguards to protect the information we collect through the Sites. However, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our Sites or systems, and we therefore do not warrant that your safeguards will prevent the loss, theft, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, misuse, or destruction of the information we collect. If we learn of any incident that may compromise the privacy or security of information we collect, we may notify you or others (including law enforcement or governmental authorities) consistent with applicable law. If you provided us with your email address, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding the privacy and security of information we collect.
Our Site does not have the capability of responding to “Do Not Track” signals received from web browsers or devices.
Managing Your Information
As mentioned above, you do not need to provide any Personal Information to us to use the Sites with the exception of agreeing to our Letter of Engagement and using services through www.rennoco.app. If you have provided us with Personal Information, you may contact us at email@example.com if you wish, with respect to any Personal Information we have about you, (i) to view or obtain a copy of that information; (ii) to correct that information; (iii) to request a deletion of some or all of the information; or (iv) to request a restriction of how we use the information, or to object to certain uses of the information.
If you prefer not to accept cookies or wish to disable or use of Tracking Technologies, most browsers and mobile devices allow you to change your settings so as to notify you when you receive cookies or other Tracking Technologies are being used, and to choose whether or not to accept/allow them. Most browsers also allow you to disable or delete existing cookies or to automatically reject future cookies. Please note that disabling cookies may impair your use of the Sites.
Certain tracking technologies we use are related to advertising networks, and through those technologies we may share certain Usage Information such as IP addresses. No Personal Information is shared with these advertising networks, but please note that the information we share with those advertising networks might be combined with other information about you that those networks may have collected from other sources.
