Privacy Policy

Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho Privacy Policy – Updated May 1, 2024

Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho (“GBDH”) has updated our privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”), which applies to all information you provide to us during your visit to our website.  This privacy policy informs you about our use and disclosure of the information you submit to us through the website (the “Website”).  This privacy policy does not govern information you might provide to us through a different way, such as when you email one of our staff directly or call us.  This privacy policy applies to all visitors to the Website.

Personal Information We Collect and How We Use It

As of the date of this Privacy Policy, GBDH provides you an opportunity for you to input personally identifiable information, including your name, phone number, email address, mailing address, type of potential claim, name of the entity against which you have a potential claim (for example, your employer, landlord, or company whose product you are complaining about), and other related information (“Personal Information”) through the “Contact Us” link on this Website.

We use your Personal Information to potentially contact you to discuss your inquiry about a potential legal claim, or respond to your comments or questions submitted through the Contact Us link.  We may also use your Personal Information to communicate with you about topics we believe may be of interest to you.  We also use the personal information you provide on the Website for our internal purposes.  These purposes may include administration of the Website, research, compliance with our legal obligations, policies, and procedures, and assessing the demographics (e.g., the size, location, and legal needs) of GBDH’s audience.

Other Uses of Personal Information:

Email: We only send emails to site visitors and users who are members of certified classes in which we are class counsel, who have contacted us directly, or who agree to receive future communications from us.  Every email you will receive from us that was not in direct response to an email or inquiry from you will contain clear information on how to unsubscribe from future communications.  If you agree to receive communications from us but then wish to unsubscribe, follow the unsubscribe instructions in the email you receive from us.  Once we receive your unsubscribe request, we will stop communicating with you until and unless you write to us and ask to receive communications from us again.

Postal Mail:  We may also send you communications via postal mail.  If you are receiving postal mail from us and wish to no longer receive it, please email us at to ask us to remove you from our postal mailing list.

Telephone:  We may also contact you by phone when you contact us about your potential claim, question or comment through the Website.  If you do not wish to be contacted by phone, please tell the person who is calling you on our behalf, and we will remove your phone number from our contact list.

Sharing Your Information

GBDH will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose Personal Information visitors submit through the Website, except as identified in this Privacy Policy.

Consent: We may share information you submit to us with your consent or at your direction.

Service providers: We may share your information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf, for example, to host the Website or to send email communications.  We obligate these service providers not to use or disclose the information they receive from us except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

External links:  The Website may include links to other websites whose privacy practices and policies we do not control.  Once you leave the Website, disclosure or provision of your personal information, if any, is governed by the privacy policy and terms of use of the owner of the site you are visiting.

Compliance with law: We may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

Acquisition: In the event GBDH, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired, or in the unlikely event that GBDH goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, website user information, including personal information, would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.  You agree that the acquirer of this information under these circumstances may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

How We Protect Personal Information

GBDH maintains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for the Website designed to protect against unauthorized disclosure, access to, or loss of the Personal Information submitted through the Website.  We do not guarantee that our safeguards will always work.

Children’s Information

The Website is not directed at children, and we will not knowingly accept, request, or collect personal information from individuals under the age of 18.  If we learn that we have collected personal information from an individual under the age of 18, we will delete this information from our databases in accordance with our deletion procedures.  Should you suspect that a child of whom you are the parent or legal guardian has provided us with personal information, please contact us at or (510) 763-9800 and we will work with you to address this issue.

Retention of Your Personal Information

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as required to provide the services for which your Personal Information was collected.  GBDH will also retain data for as long as legally required or allowed to do so for compliance obligations, dispute resolution, and as required by GBDH’s record retention policy.

Changes to Policy

The Privacy Policy may be revised at any time.  GBDH will display a notice when the Privacy Policy has been revised.  Your continued use of the Website after the notice is published constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to the revised Privacy Policy.
