McAllister is committed to protecting the personal privacy of its clients. We continually strive to maintain and improve the high standard of confidentiality required of all legal professionals. On January 1, 2004 the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) became law in Alberta. PIPA augments our commitment to personal privacy by setting guidelines on how we can collect, use and disclose the personal information we gather in the conduct of our business.
The Need for Personal InformationTo fully and properly advise our clients, we often need to collect, use or disclose personal information. We also need to collect personal information relating to our retainer and payment for services. This information may include personal information about our clients and about individuals other than our clients.
