1. Introduction

As professionals engaged in the provision of legal services to clients worldwide, Stratjuris Partners (the firm) is committed to protecting the privacy of confidential and “Personal Information” (information that directly or indirectly identifies individuals who may be clients, staff, agents, lawyers, law students, job applicants or others inside or outside the firm). It has always been and remains the policy of the firm to comply with the rules of professional conduct, which impose a duty to preserve and protect confidential client information, upon lawyers and their associated personnel.
This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) is based on the privacy and data protection principles common to the countries in which we operate. We apply it in light of our overarching obligations to comply with law, to preserve client confidentiality and to represent our clients as effectively as possible within the bounds of the law. This Statement is intended to summarize the firm’s data protection practices generally, and to advise our clients, interested law students, job applicants, website visitors, and other third parties about the firm’s privacy policies that may be applicable to them.

This Policy is also specifically addressed to parties outside the firm who provide Personal Information to the firm or who visit or use the firm’s websites, our social media sites, our extra-nets, as well as email messages that we send to you that contain a link to this policy (collectively, the “Internet Services”). This policy also describes how the firm collects, processes and discloses Personal Information in connection with the provision of legal services and the Internet Services.

2. Collection and Use of Personal Information
