When you first contact us via email, telephone or any other mode of communication, you will necessarily divulge confidential information to us.
Should we subsequently enter into an agreement to provide you with legal services, your confidential information will be maintained in a file stored securely by us. We will use that information in the course of providing you with legal services but we will not disclose the information to any person who is not a partner, proprietor, director or employee of our firm unless:
- You have specifically authorised us to disclose your information to a third party;
We are compelled to disclose the information to a third party by law; or
The information has lost its confidentiality.
If, after you have contacted us, we do not enter into an agreement to provide legal services to you, we are still required to maintain the confidentiality of your information. At the cornerstone of legal practice is the principle that a client must be able to be open and honest in their communications with a lawyer, without fear of unauthorised disclosure of their confidential information.
We assure you that your privacy and confidentiality will be protected at all times.
If you wish to access your personal information which is held by us, or make a complaint about potential breaches of privacy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as practicable.
