Personal information is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual or company. We only collect personal information when it is necessary for conducting our business, and we only use lawful means to collect it. We inform clients why we are collecting their personal information either before or at the time we collect it. We will not use the information for any additional purposes other than the purposes intended without our clients’ consent. When appropriate, we collect personal information directly from clients and, again, when appropriate, we either notify them or obtain consent before collecting personal information from other third-party sources.
Collection of Personal Information
We maintain the highest standards of integrity in everything we do. One way we live up to this commitment is by ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of the personal information we receive. We recognize and respect every individual’s right to privacy. We also recognize our obligation to preserve the confidentiality of personal information.

The Personal Information collected will be limited to those details necessary for the purposes identified by us. With your consent, we may collect Personal Information from you in person, over the telephone or by corresponding with you via mail, facsimile, or the Internet.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
We do not disclose personal information to any third parties — nor use the information for any purpose other than for that which we collected it — without your consent, unless such disclosure or use is required by law or in the discharge of a public duty. Third parties include service providers who we might engage from time to time to provide us services and in such case, we might disclose information which is essential in order to perform such services provided such service provider agree not to disclose such personal information except as necessary to perform such services.
