Gilbertson Davis LLP is committed to the protection of our clients’ personal information and privacy. In this commitment, we meet or exceed the legal and professional requirements set out in the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Rules of Professional Conduct. We view this commitment to protect your personal information and privacy, as not only a legal and professional obligation, but as a means to display in our commitment to legal excellence.
At Gilbertson Davis LLP, we collect, disclose or use your personal information for only one purpose – to provide you with outstanding legal service.
What information we collect
PIPEDA states that personal information means information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization. To effectively represent you, there is certain additional personal information that we must gather. We will collect only such information as is necessary to serve you. No more, no less.
When is it collected
Most of the information we gather will be gathered when you initially retain us; through direct requests from lawyers or members of our staff. Some personal information may be gathered through other means. In gathering information about you or your organization, please recognize that in all cases, information will be gathered in a fair and legal manner.
Protection of your information while in our care
When you provide us with personal information, you have entrusted us with its safety and privacy. We will protect it. At Gilbertson Davis LLP, we have policies to ensure the protection of your personal information and privacy. These policies ensure that your personal information is not disclosed without your authorization, unless we are legally bound to do so.
Disposal of your information
Gilbertson Davis LLP will retain your information only as long as it is necessary. When it comes time to dispose of your information, we take precautions to ensure your continued privacy.
