At KLDiscovery, our business is built upon being entrusted with personal data and confidential information. We are committed to protecting personal data, whether required by law, agreement or simply civility. We encourage you to review the statements below explaining how we collect and use personal data you share with us.
Information We Receive from Clients
As an eDiscovery company, much of the personal data we collect and store is provided by clients rather than directly from individuals. This is likely to include names, address, email address, email content, fileshares and other data. Any personal data received on behalf of clients is used strictly for the business purposes defined in the agreement between the client and KLDiscovery. It is not shared with third parties unless otherwise agreed and in such a case, strictly to provide the services to the client.
An individual who seeks access or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate personal data provided to KLDiscovery by a client should direct their query to that client in the first instance. Similarly, an individual wishing to limit the use or sharing of their personal data should direct their query to that client.
Information About Visitors to Our Website
We gather general information about the use of our websites, such as which areas users visit most frequently and which services users access the most. We use only aggregated data which cannot identify an individual visitor to our site. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually create a better overall online experience. We may use this general information and also share it with our business partners so that they too may understand how this site is used.

Such disclosure is strictly limited to provide our services.

However, as described above, we may record general information about the use of our website and share it with our business partners. If this practice should change in the future we will update this policy and provide individuals with opt-out choice prior to sharing their personal data with non-agent third parties.
KLDiscovery may also be required to disclose an individual’s personal data or confidential information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Personal data provided to KLDiscovery will be retained only so long as is required for the purpose for which it was given, such as to provide services to you and our clients.

KLDiscovery shall ensure that such third parties maintain security and data handling measures to standards prescribed by KLDiscovery prior to transferring such personal data.

You should also be aware that our website may include links to external websites operated by other organizations. They may, like us, collect personal data from visitors to their site. We cannot guarantee the content or privacy practices of any external websites and do not accept responsibility for those websites.
