Privacy Policy

Introduction

Whittal + Company is committed to maintaining the accuracy, security and privacy of Personal Information in accordance with applicable legislation. Whittal + Company Privacy Policy is a statement of principles and guidelines concerning the protection of Personal Information of our clients, service providers and other individuals.

Submitted Information

If you submit personal information to Whittal + Company or its service providers or agents, you are agreeing that they may collect, use or disclose such personal information in accordance with its privacy policy and as required by law. By providing us with your personal information, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that information as described in this Policy. If you refuse or withdraw your consent for such disclosure we may not be able to provide you or continue to provide you with certain services or information.

If you provide us or our service providers and agents with personal information of another individual, you represent that you have all necessary authority and/or have obtained all necessary consents from such person to enable us to collect, use and disclose such personal information for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Use of Personal Information

We collect and use personal information:

  1. to determine whether we can act for you, including to identify conflicts of interest;
  2. to offer and provide legal services to you and to communicate with you about our firm and our services;
  3. to administer our client records and to bill for our services;
  4. to fulfill our legal and professional obligations; and
  5. as permitted or required by law or for purposes for which you otherwise provide your consent.

We disclose personal information only as described in this Policy or as otherwise permitted or required by law. Our firm collects, uses and discloses Personal Information about our clients and service providers in order to provide our clients with professional legal services. To provide legal services, we may sometimes disclose our clients' personal information to third parties, including foreign agents and government or regulatory agencies when necessary to do so to provide legal services to you. In addition, we may also do so in order to assist us in evaluating your creditworthiness or to collect debts outstanding on an account. By providing your personal information to our firm you are consenting to such disclosure.

We intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name and e-mail address, or to correspond with you.

Please note that if you reply to a Whittal + Company address in one of our marketing e-mails, the communication you send to us will not create a lawyer-client relationship with our firm. Do not send us any information that you or anyone else considers to be confidential or secret unless we have first agreed to be your lawyers in that matter. Any information you send us before we agree to be your lawyers cannot be protected from disclosure.
