Unless permitted or required by law, no Personal Information is collected about an individual, without first obtaining the consent of the individual to the collection, use, and dissemination of that Personal Information. Consent can be express or implied depending on the context and nature of the Personal Information at issue. When BLPC acts as agents and service providers for third parties, BLPC will rely on the consents obtained by such third parties to disclose information to us.
The type of information that may be collected includes but is not limited to your name and home contact information, billing and account information, information relevant to a client’s legal matters, and other information incidental to the provision of legal advice and services by BLPC. Examples of this type of information include Personal Information about directors, officers and employees of a client or other party, witnesses, beneficiaries, family members, adverse parties or parties-in-interest, information about shareholders, security-holders, investors, potential investors, buyers or sellers, business partners, competitors, target entities and their representatives, individuals, clients, pension plan members, and other individuals, as well as copies of personal identification which may provide or confirm this Personal Information. We collect this information through retainers, ongoing legal relationships, general correspondence, faxes, emails, electronic messages, and telephone inquiries, or through the “contact us” link on our Website.
BLPC does not sell, loan, trade, barter or exchange, or otherwise disclose any Personal Information it has obtained to anyone outside of BLPC unless the disclosure is necessary to provide the services for which we have been retained or as agreed to you in advance of the disclosure, including but not limited to BLPC’s disclosure to its Agents.
