What Personal Information We Collect:

Email mailing list subscriptions:
When you subscribe to an email list from Bmaple Legal Services, you need to provide your name and an email address. This email address is used to deliver the mailing list messages to you, such as information about Bmaple Legal Services, publications, activities or projects, and any information updates. Your email address will not be disclosed to any other mailing list subscriber, organization, website, or any government agency.
At Bmaple Legal Services, we respect your privacy and, unless otherwise required by law, we will not collect, use, or disclose your Personal Information without your prior consent. Your consent may be expressed or implied. You may expressly give your consent in writing, orally, or through any electronic means. In certain circumstances, your consent may be implied by your actions. For instance, providing us with your email address or telephone number to request legal information is implied consent to use your information to send you the requested legal Information.
Wherever suitable, Bmaple Legal Services will generally seek your consent to use or disclose the information when we collect it. In certain circumstances, consent concerning use or disclosure may be sought after the information has been collected but before use. For example, when Bmaple Legal Services wants to use the information for a purpose other than those identified above. When getting your consent, Bmaple Legal Services will use reasonable efforts to ensure that you are advised of the identified purposes for which your Personal Information will be used or disclosed.
The form of consent sought by Bmaple Legal Services may vary, depending upon the circumstances and type of information disclosed. In determining the appropriate form of consent, Bmaple Legal Services will consider understanding the Personal Information and the reasonable expectations of visitors to our website. Bmaple Legal Services will seek your express consent when the Information is likely to be considered sensitive. Implied consent will commonly be appropriate where the information is less sensitive.
You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you withdraw your consent, this will result in our being unable to give you certain services.
