This privacy statement applies to the collection, process, disclosure and use of personal identifiable information (PII) or the personal sensitive information (PSI), as the case may be, which is submitted to the firm.
The firm is committed to maintaining the privacy and integrity of PII and PSI and this privacy statement describes the firm’s approach on addressing all such issues. This privacy statement provides details about the types of personal information that we collect, how we use, process, protect and disclose such personal information and the rights individuals have to control our usage and disclosure of such personal information. By using this site and submitting any personal information, you agree to the use and disclosure by the firm of such information in accordance with this privacy statement.
We may collect personal information from clients, customers, employees, contractors and other individuals. We collect such information when it is necessary for business purposes. Usually, we collect information like the contact details and organisational roles of our clients, suppliers and other business contacts. In the course of providing professional services to our clients, we may need to collect more detailed personal information (for instance, financial details if we are engaged to perform financial or tax services).
Through this website, we only collect PII or PSI that is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors having regard to the purpose for its disclosure. The firm receives limited personal information, such as name, title, company address, email address, and telephone and fax numbers from website visitors. Demographic information, including gender and occupation, is not actively sought, but may be submitted when a visitor responds to an online job application or registers for our alumni programme. It is our policy to limit the information collected to only the minimum information required to complete a visitor’s request. As we use the website as a recruiting tool, a visit to the website may also result in the user sending a resume to an individual within the firm which may contain more detailed information.
The main purposes of collecting personal information about individuals are as follows:
- Providing services
- Respond to an individual’s request
- Maintaining contact with clients
- Keeping clients and other contacts informed of the services we offer and industry developments that may be of interest to them, and to notify them of service offerings, seminars and other events we organise
- General management and reporting purposes, such as invoicing and account management
- Recruitment of staff and providing internal services to them
- All other lawful purposes related to our business and in furtherance to fulfilment of lawful contract.
Personal information collected by us through this site is used only for the intended purpose stated at the time that the information is collected or for the purposes specified above.
We do not routinely disclose or transfer an individual’s personal information to other organisations unless we have the prior and specific permission of the individual or the entity that provided such information on behalf of such individuals or unless:
● such disclosure or transfer is permitted under this privacy statement or the disclosure or transfer required by law, including for the purpose of compliance with court orders, requests or order from legal authorities or law enforcement agencies requiring such disclosure;
● The disclosure is required for us to use or process the data for the purpose for which it was obtained.
Except as set out in this privacy statement or specifically allowed under law, we will not disclose, share, sell or rent an individual’s personal information to any third party. If an individual wishes to update or change any information, he or she may do so by requesting to us and we will prospectively cease to use or modify his or her personal information.
If an individual has any queries about our privacy practices, he or she may address such matters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
