MILLAR KREKLEWETZ LLP is a boutique law firm offering Canadian tax and trade advice to national and international clients.
Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information -- Our firm collects personal information for the following limited purposes: 1. to represent the client as set out in the Retainer Agreement with the Client, on an as needed basis; and 2. to establish and maintain client lists for collection of legal fees, record keeping and other regulatory requirements.
If the client requests additional services of our firm beyond that of the original retainer, the client is giving implied consent to our firm using the personal information already held for the original purpose, as well as any new personal information collected for the new purpose.
Please note that under PIPEDA and other Federal and Provincial Legislation, we may be required to disclose personal information without client consent to: government or legal enforcement agencies if our firm determines that the client has provided incorrect information for fraudulent or illegal purposes; government or legal enforcement agencies if the information is collected in the midst of a criminal investigation; legal enforcement agency if our firm determines that there is imminent risk of death or serious bodily harm, including psychological harm, to an identifiable person or group of persons; disclosure to a third party individual or organization if so ordered by a Court or Tribunal of competent jurisdiction; and to defend against allegations of criminal or civil liability, or professional malpractice or misconduct, by the client or former client.
Security & Safeguarding -- A client’s personal information is treated as private, confidential information by our firm and we strive to ensure that the client’s personal information is protected and kept secure at all times. Most methods of communication are not fully secure and security measures may create challenges to the efficient exchange of information. Email is often our preferred method of communication and unless the client objects our firm may use unencrypted plain text emails when communicating with the clients.
