Tonkon Torp Privacy Policy

General Policy. This document describes the information that Tonkon Torp LLP collects about visitors to this website, how we use that information and how we protect that information. It also discusses certain choices you have regarding your personal information. By using this website, you consent to the following terms, as they may be amended from time to time.
What we collect. You may visit this website anonymously. The data that we regularly collect about visitors to our website (e.g., browser type, type of operating system, pages accessed, duration of visit, internet service provider domain name, etc.) does not enable us to identify you. We also collect your IP address, but this information generally does not reveal your identity. We use temporary "session cookies" to prevent animated elements from replaying for the duration of your visit to our site. "Cookies" are small files that are sent to your browser and stored on your hard drive to record how and when you use a site. Upon leaving the site, the session cookie terminates. We collect personally identifiable information about you only if you voluntarily provide it to us by requesting information from us.

How we use it. If you choose to provide us with personally identifiable information, we will use that information to respond to your inquiry. We may provide this information to third parties if we believe in our discretion it would be helpful in responding to you. For example, if you ask us to provide you with information about one of our clients, we may provide your request and contact information to that client so that our client may respond to your request directly. If, in the future, we merge with another firm, are acquired by or change our structure, we may need to transfer your personally identifiable information to the surviving or acquiring entity. We will also disclose your personal information if we in good-faith believe we are required to do so (a) by law or to comply with the law or legal process served on Tonkon Torp LLP; (b) to protect and defend our rights or property or the rights or property of our clients; or (c) in an emergency to protect the personal safety of our employees, clients, visitors or the public.

Third Party Service Providers. Tonkon Torp LLP may from time to time engage others to provide services to Tonkon, to you and to other visitors to this website. For example, we may engage other companies to host, operate and maintain this website, analyze data, provide marketing assistance and provide other services. Tonkon Torp LLP will give them access to your personal information to the extent necessary to do their jobs. We cannot guaranty that those companies will protect your personal information to the same extent described in this Privacy Policy.

Emails. From time to time, Tonkon Torp LLP may send email messages to registered users. Tonkon may use a bulk email service to distribute that information. If you do not want to receive such emails, please indicate that preference by contacting us at

Links. For your convenience, we have provided links to websites operated by others, including but not limited to the websites of some of our clients. If you choose to visit a third party's site, you should understand that the third party's privacy policy, and not this policy, will govern your activities and any information you disclose while visiting that third party's site. The privacy policies of those other websites may not be as protective of your personal information as this policy. Those other websites may send cookies to visitors, collect data or solicit personal information. Tonkon strongly recommends that you review and understand the privacy policies of the websites you visit, whether you visit those websites directly or through a link from a page on this website.

Security. Because any personally identifiable information you submit to us through this website is purely voluntary and should not be of a particularly sensitive nature, we do not use special encryption methods at this time. For more information about communicating with Tonkon Torp LLP, please refer to our Terms of Use.

Policy Changes. Tonkon Torp LLP reserves the right to change this privacy policy at any time. We will post any revisions on this Website. Please review this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of this website will be subject to the then-current privacy policy.

Policy Regarding Children. This website is for people 18 years of age and older. If you are under 18 years of age, please do not submit any information to Tonkon without the consent of a parent or guardian. Tonkon does not intentionally collect any information about children.

Questions and Updates. If you have any questions or suggestions about our privacy practices, or you wish to update or correct any personally identifiable information that you have chosen to provide to us, please feel free to contact us at

Miscellaneous. Tonkon Torp LLP's privacy policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the internet, and therefore beyond our control. We use reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. However, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of any third parties.
