This privacy policy also details our commitment and the measures taken to ensure the security of your personal information.

Our policy applies when you interact with us through our website, for example, when you fill out a form. The provision of legal services and the protection of the personal information of our employees are governed by separate policies that are communicated promptly when applicable.

By browsing our website or using our systems or services, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this policy and consent to your data and personal information being processed following it, as applicable.

1. Objectives of the Privacy Policy:


Respecting privacy and protecting personal information are essential to us. Therefore, through this Policy, we aim to protect them in accordance with applicable laws.


To ensure this protection, MTL LAWYERS INC. commits only to collect, process, and share information that identifies an individual when that individual has consented unless it is permitted or required by law, in which case your consent will not be necessary.


The Policy aims to inform users about the reasons and how MTL LAWYERS INC. or anyone acting on its behalf will collect and use their personal information. It is intended to be in clear language to ensure informed consent from users.


For this Policy, "personal information" means any information about an identifiable person or that allows a person to be identified. Where possible, we will anonymize, pseudonymize, and/or aggregate this information so that it no longer identifies a person.

2. Effective Date:


This Policy applies from September 1, 2023.

This Policy replaces the Privacy Protection Policy dated September 1, 2021.

3. Procedures for Obtaining Consent:

We commit to obtaining consent before collecting an individual's personal information. Consent can be explicit or implicit and can be provided directly by the person or by their authorized representative.


We prefer obtaining explicit consent, whether verbally, electronically, or in writing. However, implicit consent can be reasonably inferred from a person's action or inaction. For example, providing a name and address to receive a publication or a name and phone number to get an answer to a question is considered implicit consent to the collection of information containing personal information. To determine the appropriate type of consent, we consider the sensitivity of the personal information involved, the purposes for which it is collected, and the reasonable expectations of a person in a similar situation.


If we want to use personal information for a new purpose, we will describe the intended use and seek consent again.

It is not always possible, especially in the context of a state request, to obtain an individual's consent to collect, use, or disclose their personal information. We commit never to communicate such information, other than in accordance with this Policy, unless the law requires or permits us to do so.

nous y oblige ou le permet.

If such a situation arises, we will notify you of the reason why we cannot give you access to your personal information.
