Argentum Law respects your concerns about privacy and we make it a matter of pride to respect the privacy of our users and to treat their personal data in the strictest confidentiality and in accordance with the legislation in force. 

The privacy policy is intended to inform you, in a clear and transparent manner, about the data we collect, the purpose for collecting it, the way we use it and the rights you have regarding the processing of such data.

 Please read this privacy policy carefully.

1.       WHY DO WE COLLECT YOUR DATA?

We may collect, hold and use personal information in the course of and in connection with the services we provide to our clients. We may process identification and background information as part of our business acceptance, finance, administration and marketing processes, including anti-money laundering, conflict, reputation and financial checks. We may also process personal information provided to us by or on behalf of our clients for the purposes of the work we do for them. We may process data about your use of our website for the purposes of monitoring and improving our website and services.

We collect information from you and about you and others as necessary in the course of providing our services. We collect your personal information while monitoring our technology tools and services, including our websites and email communications sent to and from us. We gather information about you when you provide it to us, or interact with us directly, for instance engaging with us for our services. We may collect or receive information about you from other sources, such as when keeping the contact details we already hold for you accurate and up to date using other sources.  

We may collect the following data:

3.       WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH?

Insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy, we may share your personal information with certain trusted third parties in accordance with contractual arrangements in place with them, including: our professional advisers, suppliers to whom we outsource certain support services such as word processing, translation, photocopying and document review, IT service providers, third parties engaged in the course of the services we provide to clients, such as barristers, local counsel and technology service providers like data room providers. Where required, or for the reasons set out in this policy, personal information may also be shared with regulatory authorities, courts, tribunals, government agencies and law enforcement agencies. While it is unlikely, we may be required to disclose your information to comply with legal or regulatory requirements, we will use reasonable endeavours to notify you before we do this, unless we are legally restricted from doing so. If in the future we re-organize or transfer all or part of our business, we may need to transfer your information to new entities or to third parties through which our business will be carried out.  

We do not sell, rent or otherwise make personal information commercially available to any third party, except with your prior permission.

4.       HOW DO WE COLLECT YOUR DATA?

Most of your data is communicated to us by your active intervention. This is the case when you send us personal data in order to request our services. Other data, such as the date and time of your access to our website, the pages you have viewed, or your location data, are collected automatically through servers consulted and "cookies" placed on our website.  Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to improve your experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

5.       IS YOUR DATA PROTECTED?

We take pride in respecting the privacy of our users. We maintain a strict privacy policy and take all appropriate measures to ensure that our server providers prevent, to the extent possible, any unauthorized leak, destruction, loss, disclosure, use, access or modification of your data.

6.       WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS AND HOW CAN THEY BE EXERCISED?

You may, at any time, request to verify, access, rectify, delete, transfer and object to the use of your data, as well as request the limitation of such use of your data. To do so, simply send us an email at contact@argentumlaw.com. We will then make every effort to take the necessary action as soon as possible.

7.       WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR DATA AND TO WHOM ARE THEY COMMUNICATED?

Our employees and subcontractors have access to your data only to the extent necessary for providing our services and in connection with maintaining the website. Each of them is subject to a strict obligation of confidentiality.

8.       INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS AND STORAGE OF YOUR DATA

You acknowledge that personal data that you submit through our website may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use (or misuse) of such personal data by others. There is no geographical limit on where the data that we collect from you may be transferred, stored or processed. We endeavour, however, to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in order to safeguard your rights.  

Your data will be kept for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which your data is processed.

9.       HOW SECURE IS TRANSMISSION OF DATA AND ANY LINK ON THE WEBSITE?

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Our website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
