Brar Tamber recognizes the importance of safeguarding the privacy and the sensitivity of personal information collected. This privacy statement outlines how we collect, manage and use the personal information collected from you.
From January 1, 2004, all organizations engaged in commercial activities are required to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”) and the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information incorporated by reference into PIPEDA. These obligations extend to lawyers and law firms, including Brar Tamber. As a professional firm offering legal services, we have professional and ethical obligations to protect any personal information we hold in the context of a lawyer-client and agent-client relationship.
Information Collected and Used
For the purpose of processing your requests and transactions, we gather personal information from you when you register or signup for any service including a consultation form. It includes name, email address, phone number and any other detail you provide. Such information is provided with full knowledge or consent of the individual concerned. This information may be used to contact you directly when required and to assess your case. However, in most cases, it will be reserved for administrative purposes so that we can review these details in order to provide you with more efficient services.
Personal data submitted on this website will be used only for the purpose of providing guidance and assistance to you. We will not sell, trade, rent, transfer or exchange your information with any third-party vendor or affiliate for the purpose of direct marketing. The information gathered will be released only if it is deemed necessary by law. We may, in order to provide a more secure service, exchange your personal information with certain trusted companies and organizations for fraud protection and for ensuring a safer transaction gateway.
We will try and maintain complete confidentiality when using various forms of technology. In particular, our firm will communicate with you through various forms of fax and email.
Email can be inadvertently breached or obtained through unauthorized access. An example of this is when the client improperly shares an email from the lawyer or by someone gaining unauthorized access to your email.
Our website may contain links to external sites via hyperlinks. We are not responsible for the privacy and security practices of such sites as it is beyond our control. We advise you to exercise your own discretion when dealing with such third-party vendors.
