Collection of your personal information
We only collect personal information from you which is reasonably necessary for conducting our business, providing services to you and meeting our legal obligations.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your personal information directly from you. We may collect personal information about you via any means, including when you deal with us in person, via telephone, e-mail or through our website. The type of personal information that we collect depends on the nature of your dealings with us, and may include:
- Full name;
- Email address;
- Phone number;
- Business address;
- Financial information; and
- Information regarding your intellectual property rights.
While acting on your behalf, it may be necessary to collect your personal information from third parties such as organisations with which you have or had dealings.
Passive information that we may collect
Like many other websites, we also automatically collect and log other non-identifying information when you interact with our website. This information may include:
Device data: we may collect data from the device and application you use to access our website, such as your Internet protocol (IP) addresses, operating system, device type, browser type and timestamps.
Usage data: we may collect usage data that may include what you click on, and when you performed those actions. We do this to measure the performance of our website.
Purposes for collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information
We will hold, use and disclose personal information about you only for the primary purpose for which we have collected it and related purposes including:
- providing professional services to you;
- generating bills and reminder notices in relation to the services;
- responding to your enquiries; and
- providing you with our news and publications, seminar and event invitations or other products or services that may interest you.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties such as barristers, expert consultants, law firms, credit providers and other service providers. This may include disclosure to entities located overseas. As our services have a global reach, it is impractical for us to exhaustively list the locations of these overseas recipients.
Accessing and correcting your personal information
We take reasonable steps to make sure that the personal information which we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
If you wish to access, update, or correct your personal information which we hold, please contact our Data Protection Officer at email@example.com. We will take reasonable steps to comply with such requests and may charge a reasonable fee for retrieving your personal information and providing you with a copy of it. We may refuse to provide you with certain information where permitted or required by law.
Holding and securing your personal information
We take reasonable steps to both protect your personal information and to destroy or de-identify it when it is no longer required, including through a range of physical and electronic security measures.
