Website Privacy Statement
Leung Law PC ("LeungLaw" or "we") is committed to maintaining the accuracy, security and privacy of personal information in accordance with applicable law. This privacy statement applies to the Leung Law PC website. Information collected through this website falls into two categories: aggregate information and personal information.
Collection and Use
Aggregate information is information from which individual user identities or characteristics have been removed. When a user accesses the LeungLaw website, aggregate information is collected automatically in order to better understand website traffic patterns (e.g., total number of visitors, most visited sections, peak traffic times). None of this information is personally identifiable.
Personal information is generally any information about an identifiable individual, but does not generally include business contact information such as your name, title, business address, or telephone number. When we collect personal information about you through the website, we do so only if you consent to provide it to us. There are two ways we may collect personal information about you when you use the links contained on this website:
1) If you register to join our mailing list, we collect your email address in order to send you our publications, information about events, and other marketing communications; and
2) If you send us an inquiry through our website, we only collect your email address in order to respond to you.
You may unsubscribe from receiving any communications from LeungLaw, at any time, by sending a request to: email@example.com, or by using the unsubscribe option provided in the email you have received.
LeungLaw will not disclose your personal information other than in the following situations:
1) When LeungLaw uses third parties, including those which may be based in the United States, to administer mailing lists or event-related functions. In such circumstances, we use contractual means to ensure that these third parties protect your personal information in a manner comparable to LeungLaw practices; however, where such information is stored or accessed in other countries it may be subject to the laws of those countries.
2) When LeungLaw is required to respond to valid demands or requests from government authorities, courts, or law enforcement.
3) When LeungLaw carries out services to and for clients in association with other professional firms on your behalf.
4) When LeungLaw is required to disclose your personal information for compliance and insurance obligations or collections efforts (such as credit bureaus, collection agencies provincial law societies, insurers, securities regulators).
5) Where you have consented to such disclosure with any third parties.
In certain circumstances, as permitted or required by law, we may use or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent. These circumstances include: where the personal information is publicly available; where collection or use is clearly in the interests of you the individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way; to investigate a breach of any agreement or a contravention of a law; to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order or as required or otherwise permitted by law. When information is being collected for the detection and prevention of fraud or for law enforcement, seeking consent of the individual may defeat the purpose of collecting the information.
