Information We Collect and How We Use It

You may choose to submit personal information on our website.  Here are the types of information we collect and the ways we may use the information. 

Information You Provide

Electronic Proof of Claim Form 
To the extent authorized by order of a United States Bankruptcy Court with appropriate jurisdiction, you might be able to submit an electronic Proof of Claim Form on this website.  In connection with doing so, you might provide a name, postal address, email address, telephone number, debtor details and other information about you or the claim (such as documents that support the claim).  We may use this information for any purposes related to the claim administration or bankruptcy process, including without limitation claims analysis, objections, plan solicitation and voting, notice and other matters.  

As indicated in the filing instructions on the site, we require all filers to redact from the documents they submit on the site information such as Social Security numbers, taxpayer identification numbers, birth dates, names of minor children and financial account numbers, as required by Rule 9037 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.  We are not responsible for any failure of you or your representatives to redact details from information or documents submitted to us. 

Contact Us

If you communicate with us through the “Contact Us” link on this site, we may ask you for information such as your name, email address, postal address and telephone number.  We use this information to respond to your request.  If you request information that requires the response of a third party, we may forward your contact information to that third party to respond.   

Information We Collect by Automated Means

We may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons, when you visit our website.  The information we collect in this manner may include IP address, browser type, operating system, referring URLs, information on actions taken on our site, and dates and times of website visits.  A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings in your browser.  A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.  Through these automated collection methods, we may obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website.  As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored.  Clickstream data also can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use, the address of the website from which you linked to our site, and the pages you visit on our site.  By collecting information through cookies, web beacons and other automated means, we learn how to tailor this website to our visitors.  We may use cookies to customize your visit to our site.  We may use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website.  We also may use IP addresses to help identify visitors to our site for the duration of a session.  We may use clickstream data to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our site, how visitors navigate through the site, and how we may tailor our site to better meet the needs of our visitors.   

Other Uses of Information

In addition to the uses of information described above, we may use the information we collect on this website to operate our business, improve our products and services, and enhance visitors’ experiences on the site.  We also may use the information for internal purposes, development and administration of our site, compliance with our legal obligations, enforcement of our Terms of Use or in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection. 

Information We Share 

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you on this website, except as described here. The information and documents you submit to us in connection with submitting any proof of claim on this site will become a matter of public record and we may make publicly accessible or provide to any party such information or copies of such documents.  We also may share any information with our affiliates and service providers who perform services on our behalf.  These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.  We require these service providers by contract to appropriately safeguard the privacy and security of personal information they collect, use, disclose or otherwise process on our behalf. 

In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to 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 fraudulent or illegal activity.  We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.  Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided to us on our website in a manner that is consistent with our Online Privacy Notice.

Access and Correction

You may request a copy of any personal information we collect from you on this site or ask us to update or correct any inaccuracies in such information, other than information contained in a Proof of Claim Form submitted on this site.  You may access electronically filed Proof of Claim Forms on this site.  Amending any electronically filed Proof of Claim Forms is governed by applicable legal requirements.  Subject to applicable law, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access is unreasonably burdensome or costly under the circumstances.   

Transfer of Personal Information to Other Countries

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you on this website to countries other than the country in which you originally provided it.  These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you provided the information.  When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Online Privacy Notice.  AlixPartners, LLP is certified under the Safe Harbor privacy framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, storage, transfer, use and other processing of personal information transferred from the European Economic Area or Switzerland to the United States.  Click here to view the AlixPartners, LLP General Data Protection Statement. 

How We Protect Personal Information

We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

Links to Other Websites

Our website may provide links to other websites for your convenience and information.  These websites may operate independently from AlixPartners.  Linked sites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites.  To the extent any linked websites you visit are not owned or controlled by AlixPartners, we are not responsible for the sites’ content, any use of the sites, or the privacy practices of the sites.
