Data that we Collect
SRMO Law Offices may collect data when you visit SRMO law offices, SRMO website, meet with our SRMO lawyers and non-legal staff, or in any way contact SRMO lawyers and non-legal staff.
These data are being collected either (a) as part of SRMO’s functions as legal counsel and/or (b) for legitimate purposes under the DPA, such as security, fulfillment of a contract with the data subject, compliance with a legal obligation to which the personal information controller is subject, or as may be required by existing Philippine laws and regulations.
Specifically, when you engage SRMO as legal counsel, you agree and consent to SRMO collecting, using, storing, disclosing, sharing, deleting and otherwise processing that data as may be necessary for the purpose of the legal engagement. When you disclose to SRMO personal data of other individuals, you warrant to SRMO that you have secured the other individual’s consent or that you have authority to provide that data and that the other individual agreed or consented to this Privacy Notice.
As a Law Office, in addition to the DPA, SRMO is also bound by the Code of Professional Responsibilities and relevant provisions of the Rules of Court of the Philippines on confidentiality. As such, data shared with SRMO is considered as confidential and is not shared to persons outside the law firm, except when authorized by law or contract.
When sharing of data is authorized by law or contract, SRMO shares data subject using necessary safety and security precautions to ensure that the data will be used only for legitimate stated purpose.
SRMO retains data as long as they are necessary based on the legal basis of the collection and as long as required by appropriate government agencies.
