Law Advice Compensation Lawyers (Law Advice) is bound by the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act) and we take these obligations seriously.
“Personal Information” means information which identifies you or which allows your identity to be reasonably ascertained.
Your personal information will not be used for any purpose other than providing you with the services that you ask us to provide. As such, except where we are required to do so by law, or it becomes necessary to lessen or prevent a serious and imminent threat to life, health or safety, your information will not be disclosed to any third parties without your prior consent.
Generally, we do not collect personal information about you when you are utilising our website. We do from time to time collect personal information to assist us in assessing the nature and scope of your enquiry or matter. For example, Law Advice collects your personal information directly from you when you fill out our online enquiry form. In all circumstances, we will treat your information in accordance with our privacy principles. When you send a completed online form to us, we retain the information contained in that form in order to use that information to respond to your enquiry and to provide any information that you require. The information we collect about you is information that you consent to give us directly, or consent to allow us to enquire about.
We store personal information in physical files, computer systems or in a database held by us and by service providers on our behalf. Law Advice places great importance in the security of your information. Unfortunately, data transmissions over the internet cannot be guaranteed as completely secure. So, while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us and individuals do so at their own risk. All information which is collected by us is stored subject to security measures which endeavour to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information within our control.
We retain the information which you provide us, such as your contact details, for the purpose of verifying your client details and to retain adequate records for legal purposes. Your personal information is stored in our database and will not be disclosed to any third parties without your prior consent.
Your email address will only be recorded if you send us a message or otherwise otherwise consent to its recording. It will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list or disclosed to any third party.
For statistical purposes, we collect information on website activity (such as the number of users who visit our website, the date and time of visits, the number and type of pages viewed). We do not in any way use this information to identify individuals.
When you provide us with information to publish on our website which may include but is not limited to testimonials or articles, you give us the right to publish the information without any limitation whatsoever. The information provided in this respect can be published at our discretion.
If you provide your personal information or the personal information of a third party to us, you warrant that you have permission to publish that information and indemnify us against any losses or consequences resulting from the publication of the subject information.
You may contact us on 1800 122 555 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to your personal information, if you believe that the personal information we hold is incorrect, or if you have any concerns regarding the way your personal information is handled.
