Collection, use and disclosure of your personal information
Whenever reasonably practicable, we will seek to collect personal information directly from you. At times, we may collect personal information about you from the public domain, or third party information brokers.

We will take all reasonable efforts to secure your personal information, and prevent its misuse or unauthorised access by third parties. However, you accept that the internet is at risk generally from viruses and cyber-attacks, and email is an unsecure method of communication. In such an environment, we cannot warrant that unauthorised access to your personal information will never occur, and our obligation to protect your personal information does not extend beyond what measures would be regarded as reasonable with respect to a small legal firm or incorporated legal practice, employing five or less persons (including all directors).
You may request access to any personal information we have in our possession, and which is easily recoverable. In such circumstances we reserve the right to charge an administrative retrieval fee, before complying with your request.
You may further request we correct any such information which is inaccurate. In such circumstances we reserve the right to charge an administrative fee, before complying with your request.
