Privacy Policy


Shanti Estate law is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains how Shanti Estate Law handles your personal information to protect your privacy.

 

collection and use of your personal information

Your personal information is collected and used by Shanti Estate Law in order to provide legal advice and services to you, to comply with professional obligations, such as client identification, to issue invoices, and to maintain a client database.

The information collected is restricted to what is necessary to properly advise you, to provide you legal services, and to comply with my professional obligations as a lawyer.

Your personal information is collected directly from you, or from a third party with your express permission (for example, your financial planner). Your information is primarily collected at the beginning of a retainer. Further information or clarification may be needed as the work proceeds. In order for Shanti Estate Law to properly advise its clients, it is important that all relevant information be provided in a timely manner. 

 

consent to collection

By using this website, the email submission form, and by retaining Shanti Estate Law, you are consenting to the collection of your personal information. A reminder that simply sending an email or using the email form on this website does not mean that you have retained me or Shanti Estate Law. In order to retain me as your lawyer, you will need to sign a Retainer Agreement (please see the Terms of Use page for more information). 

 

Website Privacy

Like most commercial websites, Shanti Estate Law may monitor website traffic, page usage, and related site information to help improve your experience visiting this website and to help improve marketing efforts. With social media, third parties, including Facebook and Google, may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from this website and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide measurement services and targeted ads. You may opt-out of this type of information collection at any time; to do so, please visit this page and/or this page. Shanti Estate Law does not combine any of the information collected with personally identifiable information.

 

keeping your information secure

These include: security of the physical premises; professional obligations; measures to prevent unauthorized access to computers and emails; use of a secure server; and additional safeguards for Wills and Powers of Attorney.

 

disclosure of information

All information collected by Shanti Estate Law in the context of a lawyer-client relationship is kept confidential. Information is only disclosed with the consent of the client or if such disclosure is permitted or required by applicable law or court order.

 

withdrawal of consent

You may withdraw your consent to the collection, use and/or disclosure of your personal information at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and with reasonable notice. Withdrawing your consent to the collection, use and/or disclosure of your information may impact my ability to provide legal advice or services to you. 

 

accuracy of your information

It is important that the information you provide be accurate and up-to-date. If your information changes at any time during your retainer, please inform Shanti Estate Law so that any appropriate changes may be made as soon as possible. Also, if you are an existing or previous client, please keep Shanti Estate Law updated with your current contact information.
