Bay View Law Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to all information collected online from users of Bay View Law’s website. This policy will state what kind of information we collect, when and how we might use that information, how we protect the information, and choices you have with respect to your personal information.

What personal information is collected by and how will it be used?

We collect information about our users directly from the user (through email or our google booking form used to book consultations), from our Web server logs and through cookies. We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. We don’t share any of the information you provide with others, unless we say so in this Privacy Policy, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

User-supplied information: If you fill out the our “Consultation Booking Form”, which we manage through Google Forms, we will ask you to provide some personal information (such as e-mail address, name, phone number and which city you live in). We only require that you provide an e-mail address on the contact form. Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.

Information that you provide to us through our Consultation Booking Form will be used so that we may respond to your inquiry. We may also use information you provide to us to communicate with you in the future. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you may opt out (unsubscribe) as described below.

Web server logs: When you visit our website, we may track information about your visit and store that information in web server logs, which are records of the activities on our sites. The servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. Examples of the information we may collect include, your unique Internet protocol address, your Internet service provider, the town/city, province and country from which you access our website, the kind of browser or computer you use, the number of links you click within the site, the date and time of your visit, the web page from which you arrived to our site, the pages you viewed on the site, and certain searches/queries that you conducted via our website(s).

The information we collect in web server logs helps us administer the site, analyze its usage, protect the website and its content from inappropriate use and improve the user’s experience.

Cookies: In order to offer and provide a customized and personal service, our websites and applications may use cookies and similar technologies to store and help track information about you. Cookies are simply small pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use cookies to help remind us who you are and to help you navigate our sites during your visits. Cookies also can tell us where visitors go on a website and allow us to save preferences for you so you won’t have to re-enter them each time you visit. The use of cookies is relatively standard. Most Internet browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can use your browser to either notify you when you receive a cookie or to disable cookies.

If you wish to disable cookies from this site, you can do so using your browser.

By visiting this website, you consent to the use of cookies and similar technologies in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


How will protect my personal information?

We take appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.

Who can have access to collected personal information?

We will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other user data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows: to legal services providers we hire in relation to work that needs to be performed on your matter; if we are unable to assist with your matter, but know an unaffiliated attorney or firm that may be able to help you, we may refer you and share information you provided us with that party; and as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.

Can I change or delete my personal information or opt out of future communications? How?

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. Contact us via the phone number, contact form or mailing address on our website at any time to see what data we have about you, if any, change/correct any data we have about you, ask us to delete any data we have about you (other than data we are required to keep by law or pursuant to the Law Society of British Columbia’s rules, policies or best practices); or opt out of future communications from us.

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy, please feel free to contact us via the phone number or email address listed on the website. If our information practices change in a significant way, we will post the policy changes here.
