PRIVACY POLICY
 

This Privacy Policy applies to DeHeng Law Offices’ privacy practices for the handling of data submitted in connection with your immigration matters.  We will collect and use your personal information, and may transfer or disclose such information as set out in this Privacy Policy, as may be required during our assessment and/or representation of you in your immigration matters.  The personally identifiable information about you that we acquire will be imported and retained. This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal data we collect, how we may use or process that information and with whom we can share it; it also describes the measures we take to protect the security of your personal data.
 

Information we collect
 

You may give us information, or your employer or immigration sponsor may send it to us. This may include your name, email address, phone numbers, employer and employment details, education history, and physical addresses. In the event that you are an existing client, we may collect information as needed. Depending on the destination country, we may also require passport and visa number and details, government identifiers, gender, date of birth, nationality, ethnicity, race, former addresses, marital history, criminal background, disability, financial details, other information relating to health, religion, spouse or partner and parental details. If we provide services for your family or companions, we may collect similar information about them.
 

Use your information
 

When we process personal information about you, we do so as necessary to provide the products and services you and your employer or immigration sponsor use, to operate our business, to meet our contractual and legal obligations, to protect the security of our services, systems and customers, or to fulfil other legitimate interests and the services that we have been engaged to provide as described in this policy.
 

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. When we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by either unsubscribing or opting out in the Settings section of the Site, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

 

Sharing of your personal information with third parties
 

We share information with vendors that perform functions on our behalf, such as vendors offering notarization, translation, authentication, and legalization services, visa and passport providers, third party providers and services partners to facilitate the provision of services with respect to foreign governments, mobile application and software developers, and vendors who provide IT support, data hosting and marketing and communication services. These vendors process your information only as necessary to perform their functions as instructed in our contracts with them.
 

In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, we may transfer your personal information to the seller or buyer of such business or assets. If DeHeng Law Offices assets are acquired by a third party personal information may be one of the transferred assets.
 

We share personal information when we think it’s reasonably necessary to protect ourselves and the people who use our services, enforce agreements, respond to emergencies and comply with law.
 

We do not sell information to third parties so that they can independently market their own products or services directly to you.
 

Before transferring your personal information to third parties, we will require the third party to maintain at least the same level of privacy and security for your personal information that we do.
 

How we protect and store your information
 

We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by your account password and we urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
 

Changes to this Privacy Policy
 

We may change this privacy policy from time to time as our business changes or legal requirements change. If we make material changes to this privacy policy, we will post a notice on our sites before the changes go into effect, and where appropriate, send a direct communication to you about the change.
