Christopher R. Neufeld and Neufeld Legal P.C. (“we”) are committed to keeping the personal information of our clients and other individuals (“you”) confidential, to the extent that it is reasonably possible (subject to our use of Google Analytics, and other internet based tools, to monitor and update the ComputerLawyer.ca website).
Personal Information pertains to information about an identifiable individual or that permits an individual to be identified. Personal Information, however, does not include your name, business address and business contact information, such as your designation, email address or phone number, which have been provided for business purposes. We generally collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide, together with information collected from third parties and as agents on behalf of our clients where we or they have obtained the requisite consent, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
Personal Information is primarily used to provide legal advice and representation to our clients and prospective clients, for administrative and relationship management purposes and for such other permissible or required legal functions. When third party service providers are engaged (i.e., for office administration, data processing), they are contractually obligated to protect the confidentiality of the Personal Information entrusted to them. Personal Information supplied to us is confidential and is not sold to outside parties.
Notwithstanding our efforts to maintain your confidentiality, you must be aware that most methods of communication are not fully secure and the implementation of stringent security measures frequently comprises one’s ability to communicate, which we have had to balance off to make ourselves accessible. Our use of email is therefore not entirely secure, especially given our reliance upon unencrypted plain text emails, which we will continue to use unless requested otherwise.
We only keep Personal Information as long as it is required, for the reasons it was collected or in compliance with legal or professional mandates. We use analytics programs (i.e., Google Analytics) and other internet tools to improve this website, and therefore cannot attest to the security of those third party operations.
This website may contain links to other websites which may collect your Personal Information. We do not assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of the third parties operating these websites. You should read the privacy policies of those websites and make an informed decision whether or not to provide your Personal Information to the websites’ operators.
