Privacy Protection Policy Required by CGS §42-471

 

Updated:  February 22, 2021

We collect Social Security Numbers (“SSN”) from clients only when it is necessary to perform legal services on their behalf.  Additionally, we keep records of employees’ SSN, as required by law.  We safeguard SSN by protecting the confidentiality of, prohibiting unlawful disclosure of and limiting access to SSN as described below.

Except as authorized by law and by the client, we do not disclose SSN of current or former clients or SSN of customers, clients, patients or employees of clients that we obtain in the course of representing our clients.  Any disclosure authorized by a client must be consistent with applicable laws, the provisions of the codes of professional responsibility and rules of ethics governing our conduct as lawyers. As a general matter, we treat all information we receive from clients as confidential and protect it as such.  Additionally, we limit access to sensitive information such as SSNs to those who require access to carry out necessary job functions.

Access to SSN of employees is strictly limited to employees with a business need to access such information. The limited employees with access to employee SSN may not disseminate SSN internally or externally, except to fulfill a necessary business function such as performing payroll or employee benefit functions, or to comply with a court order, service of process, or other applicable law. We train all staff annually on the importance of the protection of client information and, in particular, of sensitive personal information such as SSN.
