Shulman & Partners LLP (“Shulman & Partners”) recognizes the importance of privacy and the sensitivity of personal information.
Collection of Personal Information
We collect information only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way. Typically, and wherever possible, we collect your personal information directly from you, at the start of a retainer and in the course of our representation.
In some cases, we shall ask you to specifically consent, either in writing or orally, if we collect, use, or disclose your personal information. In many cases, however, your consent will be implied through your conduct with us.
Our Approach to Security
We maintain reasonable physical, technical, and procedural measures to limit access to personal information to authorized individuals with appropriate purposes. If you believe that someone has improperly used personally identifiable information about you or has made inquiries that you did not authorize, please contact us immediately.
Use of Personal Information
We use your personal information to provide legal advice and services to you, to administer our client (time and billing) databases and to include you in any direct marketing activities. If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive information about our services, or about new developments in the law, we will not send any further material.
Shulman & Partners does not disclose your personal information to any third party to enable them to market their products and services. For example, we do not provide our client mailing lists to other law firms or organizations.
Updating Your Information
Since we use your personal information to provide legal services to you, it is important that the information be accurate and up-to-date.
If during the course of the retainer, any of your information changes, please inform us so that we can make any necessary changes.
Communicating with Us
You should be aware that e-mail is not a completely secure medium, and you should be aware of this when contacting us to send personal or confidential information.
