AMCG Legal is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of information it collects from clients.
In most circumstances, we collect information directly from you. This may be through correspondence, email, in person or by telephone. This includes your name, contact details, date of birth and any fact or opinion you provide that is related to the matter in respect of which you are seeking legal advice or representation. In relation to individuals acting as service providers, contractors or agents of the firm, we collect your name, contact details and relevant information concerning your dealings with us.
Purpose of Collection
In relation to clients, this information is collected to provide you with legal advice and representation. In performing these services, we may provide information to agents to take actions or make enquiries in relation to the conduct of your matter. For example, at your instruction, a barrister may be briefed, expert advice sought, or a search firm may be engaged to conduct a title search in relation to your matter. In relation to individuals acting as service providers, contractors or agents, we may use your information to access or use the services provided by you or an organisation for whom you work.
Use and Disclosure of Information
We use and disclose your information for the primary purpose for which you have provided the information. In addition to the use and disclosure of information outlined above and under “Purpose of Collection”, we also use and disclose information for purposes ancillary and consequential to the primary purpose of collection such as invoicing, related correspondence and accurate file management. To this end, AMCG Legal may use the services of agents, service providers or contractors who must comply with fiduciary and confidentiality duties and the Privacy Act (where applicable) in their handling and management of information. At your instruction or according to the requirements of the law, we may disclose your information to organisations such as regulatory authorities, government departments, courts or other parties or advisers.
Security of Information
The information you provide us is stored on computer and paper-based files as appropriate. The secure storage and use of information are of paramount importance to us so that all reasonable steps are taken to protect the information from misuse or loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure by means such as password, firewall and network protection, and secure storage of paper-based and other records. In addition, all staff with access to your personal information are bound by duties of confidentiality.
Accuracy of Personal Information
We take all reasonable steps to ensure that the information we collect is accurate, complete and up to date at the time of collection. If your circumstances change or you have reason to believe our records are not accurate, complete or up to date, please contact us immediately and we will take all reasonable steps to correct it.
You may request access to the personal information that we hold on you. However, our discretion, duties and obligations under the law may restrict your access. Given this, all reasonable actions will be taken to assist access or to address any reasons you have to seek access. If access is denied, we will provide you with reasons as may be required in accordance with the law. If access is provided, a reasonable fee may be charged for time and other costs incurred in providing access.
