The following describes privacy policies and related information practices of SWCA, Incorporated, dba SWCA Environmental Consultants. SWCA is sometimes referred to as “we” or the “company”. References to “you” mean the individuals addressed by this document. References to the company “website” or “site” means the company’s website where this policy is posted.
Similar to other businesses in our industry, we collect, maintain and otherwise use various information in the course of conducting business. Business information used by the company includes certain information about third-parties such as current clients and prospective clients. Examples of third-party information include contact information for those third-parties and for individual representatives of those third-parties.
Third-party information used by the company generally consists of information provided by third-parties or their representatives and information that is publicly available. For example, if contact details are provided through the website for purposes of obtaining information (e.g., in connection with subscribing to a company mailing list or registering for a company seminar), those contact details will be used for that purpose and may also be used to provide other information that we believe may be of interest to the recipient such as information about the company’s services.
Confidentiality and Security
Any information that is subject to confidentiality or privacy obligations is maintained in accordance with those obligations. As part of that effort, reasonable security precautions are maintained as required by applicable obligations and otherwise determined to be appropriate. Subject to compliance with applicable confidentiality and privacy obligations, information may be shared in the ordinary course of business as determined to be necessary or appropriate. For example, information regarding client projects may be shared with subcontractors as necessary to perform services for the client. Information is subject to disclosure when required under applicable laws such as in the case of a court order.

Please note that in the case of third-parties (e.g., any third-party websites that may be referenced on the company’s site or elsewhere), the information practices of those third-parties are governed by the information practices and privacy policies of those companies which we do not have control over or responsibility for.
