Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to your privacy
Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our Website (www.ikm.co.ke). By using our Website, you consent to the IKM privacy policy.

The information we collect
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you - such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. –unless you choose to fill out a 'Contact Us' form, found on many of the pages of the Website or to email us directly.

We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website – such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

Children’s privacy
This Site is not directed to children and we request that children do not provide personally identifiable information through our Website.

If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personal information from a child, we shall delete the information from our records.

How we normally use information about you
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyse site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our Website.

In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry.

Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any of the offices of the DLA Piper Group, throughout the world, including Africa, United States, Europe and Asia and any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

Personal Information which users provide to us may be transferred to or stored in other countries, the data protection laws of which may differ from those of your country, and you expressly agree to such transfer.

We will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside the DLA Piper Group, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

If you are interested in applying for a job at Iseme, Kamau & Maema Advocates (IKM) and choose to submit curriculum vitae information by email, we will use it only for the internal application review process. We will not voluntarily share, rent or sell it outside the DLA Piper Group, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

However, it is possible, although unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, summons or a law enforcement agency's request.

Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.

Collection of information by third-party sites and sponsors
Our Website contains links to other sites whose information practices may be different from ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

  • IKM may post information about programmes and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored by other firms or organisations. Should you choose to register electronically for any of these events, IKM will have no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to our Website will not apply.

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can remember who you are.

This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site and services.

We may use cookies in the following ways:

  • Where they are essential to make our Website work;
  • To enable the personalisation features on our site (which give you the ability to recall recently viewed pages and see information which you have input on line); and
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our Website and to help us improve the structure of our Website. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

For detailed information about cookies and how they are used on our website, see our Cookie Policy.
