We may collect personal information from you.

Personal information is defined by the Act as “information or an opinion about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable:

(a) whether the information is true or not; and
(b) whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.”

In general, the personal information we may collect and may hold includes name, date of birth, contact details (including email addresses and telephone numbers), bank account details, and other information which assists us in conducting our business, providing and marketing our services and meeting our legal obligations.

We may hold your information in computer systems, electronic form, digital records, telephone recordings and/or in paper files.

We will take all reasonable steps to protect your information from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification and/or disclosure.

We will make every effort to ensure that the personal information collected from you is accurate and complete, and will assume that personal information provided by you does not contain errors and is not misleading or deceptive. We will not take steps to verify the accuracy of any personal information provided by you and will rely on the personal information provided by you. You must notify us of changes to your personal information as soon as possible after such changes occur.


We will collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information for the primary purposes for which it was collected. This includes:

  • providing legal services to you;

  • we consider it necessary to be disclosed so that the services we provide to you can be properly
    performed; or
  • you have consented (whether expressly or impliedly);
  • we are required or permitted by law to provide your personal information to a third party.
