How might we use and disclose your personal information?

  • where the individual would reasonably expect this; or,

When O’Reilly Workplace Law shares personal information with third party service providers, we require that they use your personal information only for the purpose of providing services to O’Reilly Workplace Law and subject to terms consistent with this privacy policy.

How is your personal information kept accurate and up-to-date?

O’Reilly Workplace Law takes steps to ensure your personal information is accurate, up-to-date and not misleading by updating its records whenever changes to the information come to its attention. O’Reilly Workplace Law disregards information that seems likely to be inaccurate or out-of-date by reason of the time which has elapsed since it was collected or by reason of any other information in its possession.
