Privacy Policy

POLICY​ STATEMENT

Your privacy is important and maintaining your trust and confidence is a priority. Your right to keep your personal information confidential and your desire to avoid unwanted solicitations is absolutely paramount. To illustrate just how important your privacy is I hope you will take a few minutes to read Cloud Hound policy. If you do so you will have a better understanding of what Cloud Hound does with the information you provide and how Cloud Hound keeps it private and secure.

Cloud Hound collects certain personal information about you – but only when that information is provided by you or is obtained by me with your authorisation. Cloud Hound uses that information to provide requested services and other services to you at your request.

Examples of sources from which Cloud Hound collects information could include:

  • Interviews, meetings and phone calls with you
  • Letters, e-mails and text messages to and from you
  • Prepared documents and data as well as planning organisers, and
  • Legal and financial information including governing documents.

 

As a general rule, we do not disclose personal information about clients or former clients to anyone. However, to the extent permitted by law and any applicable Code of Professional Conduct, certain non-public information about you may be disclosed in some situations:
  • To comply with a validly issued and enforceable court summons.
  • In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale, or merger of all or part of Cloud Hound practice, provided that I take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review.
  • As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings either initiated by or against us, provided I disclose only the information necessary to submit, pursue, or defend against a charge and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record.
  • To provide information to affiliates and non-affiliated third parties who perform services or functions for Cloud Hound in conjunction with my services to you, but only if we have a contractual agreement with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed. (Examples of such disclosures include using an outside service to process returns or engaging a records-retention agency to store records.)

 

Except as otherwise described in this notice, I restrict access to non-public personal information about you to those who must use that information to provide services to you. Their right to further disclose and use the information is limited by the policies of Cloud Hound and applicable law. Cloud Hound also maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable laws and regulations to guard your personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, or premature destruction.

Thank you for allowing Cloud Hound to serve you. Cloud Hound values your business and is committed to protecting your privacy. I hope you view Cloud Hound as your most trusted advisor and we will work to continue earning your trust. Please if you have any questions or if we can be of further service.
