Why does Uncharted Legal collect my personal information?
The firm collects your information as part of providing its services, including billing you for services rendered.
How does Uncharted Legal collect my personal information?
Wherever possible, Uncharted Legal collects your personal information directly from you. Sometimes Uncharted may obtain information about you from other sources, such as through Internet searches or from a government agency or registry.
When does Uncharted Legal disclose my personal information?
Under certain circumstances, Uncharted Legal may disclose your personal information, such as:
- when the firm is required or authorized by law to do so, for example, as part of litigation disclosure obligations, such as a court order;

Retention of your personal information
Uncharted Legal takes every precaution to only retain your personal information for as long as it is needed by the firm to carry out legal services or for as long as Uncharted has a contractual relationship with you.

It is important that your personal information be accurate and up-to-date. Throughout the course of Uncharted’s relationship with you, the firm asks that you advise of any changes to your personal information.
Access To Your Personal Information
You may request access to any personal information Uncharted has about you. The firm can help you identify what information it may have about you. In some cases, Uncharted may deny access to your personal information, such as if it would have an unreasonable impact on someone else’s privacy. If Uncharted does deny your request for access, or refuses a request to correct information, you will be provided with an explanation for the decision.
