The Right to be Forgotten

By Tate Hilmoe

November 4, 2019


The “Right to Erasure” or deletion has been around pre-Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). California passed the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) that goes into effect on January 1, 2020, which enables individuals the right to erasure. California took a big step forward, but why isn’t data privacy a priority in the U.S.?


Our government has been eerily silent regarding our individual data privacy. Let’s move forward and strike a balance between data privacy and freedom of expression. The fact that corporations in the U.S. are “tasked” with securing my personal information is not reassuring. 

Everyone should have the right to the protection of his or her personal data. Everyone should also have the right of access to data which has been collected about him or her, and the right to have it rectified. Yes, there will be instances where personal data is required for security and transactions etc. This should be carved out in a commercially reasonable manner.


Congress, pass a comprehensive and meaningful online privacy act establishing online privacy as a human right. You have the GDPR and the CCPA as a roadmap. And don’t buckle under the lurking armies of well-paid lobbyists to water it down. We know better.

How HBM Can Streamline Your Organization

By Tate Hilmoe

December 3, 2018


For many businesses, necessary legal documents such as vendor contracts, lease abstracts, letters of intent, NDAs, and the like are an ongoing yet a necessary part of doing business. Organizations generally fall into two categories: (1) They have in-house counsel; or (2) They outsource legal work based on need.

 

To truly understand the demands of a company one must have experience in-house and/or have an active and vested interest in a company. We have a depth of experience with both. We also understand that hourly billing is archaic and opaque. Yet most firms live and die by this dated model. Ultimately the client suffers.

 

Our solution is offering cost-effective pricing through a flat fee per document system. We can save your company up to 50% on routine transactional matters. Our cloud-based technology makes communication more efficient and allows immediate access to executed agreements.

 

We work with technology, financial, real estate, recycling, manufacturing, distribution and numerous other industries with our flat fee model. Call us today to see how we can help. It’ll be confidential.
