  • Respond to comments, questions and requests;

  • Monitor and analyze trends, use and activities related to our SERVICES;

  • Combine this data with others obtained from third parties to understand their needs and provide a better Service. 

 

Transfer of personal data abroad

COUNSEL can store your personal data in Panama and in other countries, where you may have fewer legal rights as established by local laws. However, regardless of where we store your data, will be treated as established in this Privacy Policy.  We will ensure the security of your information, and only transmit it to jurisdictions that have levels of protection at least similar to those of our applicable jurisdiction.

 

Guiding principles for the processing of personal data

COUNSEL seeks to abide by privacy principles related to the notice, choice, transfer, security, data integrity, access and execution of the personal data of its users. Therefore, we are governed by the essence of the following principles:

  • Notification: we are obliged to provide our users with basic information regarding the processing of their personal information (e.g. type of data collected, the purpose of the treatment).

  • Choice: users whose personal data are processed by us, may object to whether the data is communicated to a third party or used for a purpose other than the one collected. We will ask for your express consent before communicating your data to an authorized third party, usually by clicking on an "I accept" box or similar means.

  • Security: the collection, processing, maintenance and use of personal data of our users will be carried out under appropriate security measures, taking into account factors such as the nature of such personal data.

  • Limitation of purpose for the treatment: the personal data collected should be limited to the relevant purpose of the treatment thereof.

  • Access: our users will have the right of access over the processing of their personal data.

  • Transfer liability: any transfer or subsequent communication to another person responsible for or in charge of treatment may be given only for our specific and limited purposes, taking into account this Privacy Policy.

  • Protection Liability: our authorized third parties must have mechanisms to ensure compliance with security measures regarding the personal data of our users, in at least the same extent as those used by us.

 

Information shared with the client’s consent

We will not share your personal information except with authorized third parties, except in the cases described below or in other parts of this Privacy Policy:

  • With your consent: that is, if we notify you through our SERVICES that the information you provide us will be shared in a certain way and you agree to provide such information;

  • With consultants and other authorized service providers who need access to such information to perform their work with us;

  • With other people who access our SERVICES in accordance with the privacy settings you select;

  • In connection with, or during the negotiation, merger, sale of assets, financing or acquisition of all or part of our office;

  • When we believe that the disclosure is necessary to comply with current laws and regulations, legal processes or governmental requests; and

  • To enforce our agreements, policies and terms of use; to protect the security or integrity of our SERVICES; or to protect COUNSEL, our users or the public, from illegal activities and other damages.

 

We may also share aggregate, anonymous or unidentifiable information that can not be used to identify you in any way.

 

External web links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include external SERVICES as part of our service portfolio. These third parties may have independent privacy policies. Accordingly, we assume no responsibility for the actions of these third parties, nor for how they collect, use or share your data.

 

Protection of the personal data of the client

COUNSEL takes reasonable measures to protect the data from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

 

Means to exercise clients’ rights to personal data

Clients of COUNSEL may request the exercise of their rights to: access their personal data; rectify their personal data when it is inaccurate or incomplete; cancel their personal data; oppose for legitimate cause to the processing of their personal data, and/or revoke their consent for the processing of their personal data at any time, in order to stop the use thereof.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is important to note that not in all cases we can meet your request to cancel your personal information, oppose the treatment or revoke your consent, as it is possible that by some legal obligation we require further processing of your personal data. Therefore, you as a user must consider that for certain purposes, the revocation of your consent will imply the suspension of our SERVICES or the end of your relationship with COUNSEL.

The exercise of rights of access, rectification, cancellation or opposition of personal data and revocation of consent made by users must be made upon request to COUNSEL and contain at least the following:

  • The name of the client, address and email to communicate the response to your request;

  • The documents that prove the identity or, where appropriate, the legal representation of the client;

  • The clear and precise description of the personal data with respect to which one seeks to exercise any of the aforementioned rights (in the case of rectification, the modifications to be made must be indicated and the documentation must be submitted to support your request);

  • Any other element or document that facilitates the location of personal data.

 

For purposes of the foregoing, COUNSEL makes the following e-mail available to users: imartinez@ims.legal

COUNSEL will respond to the request of users within a period no longer than 20 business days from the date on which it receives the corresponding request, through the email that has been provided for this purpose.
