We may also collect your personal information to add you to our legal alerts list, to inform you of updates and changes to the law or to invite you to events relevant to your industry (which can be unsubscribed from at any time).
We are generally given your information from your accountant or adviser or otherwise we usually collect it directly from you. The information is collected before establishing the structure for you.
If you do not provide us with the requested information, we may not be able to establish the structure for you or refer you to Cooper Grace Ward Lawyers for legal advice.
In some circumstances (such as anonymous telephone calls), it may be possible for you to provide some but not other personal information to us, and you can ask us if this is possible before providing us with your instructions.
Aside from Cooper Grace Ward Lawyers, your accountant or adviser, or any third party contractors we engage to assist us with the services, we do not usually disclose your personal information to other entities, unless it is necessary or you have you have requested or authorised us to disclose the information to another party.
We generally do not disclose your personal information to overseas recipients otherwise than in accordance with your instructions. However, in some cases we may indirectly disclose personal information overseas through our service providers. For example, we disclose personal information with Hubspot, which has data centres located in the United States. Where we disclose your personal information to parties located overseas (or which have data centres located in other countries), we take reasonable steps to ensure that those parties will handle the personal information in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles. We are not required to take such steps if we believe that the overseas recipient is already subject to a law that has the effect of protecting personal information in a substantially similar way to the relevant law in Australia, or with your consent.
