Consistent with our professional responsibilities and applicable law, Adhikari Law is committed to ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of information pertaining to our clients, potential clients, their affiliates and affiliated individuals, and to adhering to the policy set out below. Reference in this policy to “your personal data” means any information that identifies, or could reasonably be used to identify, you as one of the aforementioned persons.
Use of Your Personal Data
Adhikari law collects and processes your personal data to facilitate the provision of our professional services, including client services, conflicts checking, billing and marketing. We may also process your personal data in order to comply with our legal obligations. Personal data includes contact details (e.g., name, work address, telephone number and email address), work history (e.g., work function, education, training and details of former employment), identification information (e.g., passport details, visa and immigration status, date and place of birth) and billing information (e.g., account numbers and tax information). We collect personal data through direct contact with our clients, potential clients, their affiliates and affiliated individuals, through subscriptions submitted to our website or other websites sponsored by Adhikari Law and through information publicly available on websites or from subscription services.
During the course of our representation of you, we may transfer your personal data to other offices within the Adhikari Law network to facilitate and centralize the operation of client services, conflicts checking, billing, marketing and related professional services. You should be aware that when you provide information to any individual Adhikari Law lawyer, you are providing it to Adhikari Law as a whole, and your information may therefore be exported to, processed in and accessed from countries whose laws provide varied levels of protection, not always equivalent to that provided in your own country. Please be assured that Adhikari Law has adopted various procedural and technical safeguards, in accordance with European data protection law, to protect your data within our global network.
Access by Third Parties
Consistent with our professional and ethical obligations, Adhikari Law may allow others to access your information in order to process data on our behalf in connection with the conduct of our business or where disclosure of your information is in your interest or is otherwise permitted, required or authorized under applicable law.
Prior to allowing any third party access to your information for the purpose of conducting our business, Adhikari Law will take all reasonable steps to ensure that such third party enjoys a sound business reputation and provides at least the same level of privacy protection that we offer to our clients.
How to Access Your Personal Data
If you have any questions about our use of your personal data (including categories of third parties to whom your personal data has been disclosed), or if you want to exercise your right to see a copy of, correct, erase or block the personal data we hold about you or to submit a written demand that Adhikari Law cease processing your personal data. As permitted by applicable law, a nominal fee may be charged for each personal data access request that you make, and there may be a limited number of narrow exceptions to the rights set forth above.
Personal data is only collected and processed to the extent necessary for the purposes described above. Adhikari Law updates, corrects and erases personal data on a regular basis. Adhikari Law will store and process your data only for the term of your retention of Adhikari Law and for a period thereafter reasonably determined by business necessity and our professional obligations to you, or as may be required by law.
Adhikari Law will work in good faith to resolve any concerns you may have about this policy and our privacy practices.
