Tuhin & Partners Privacy Policy

Tuhin & Partners recognizes the importance of privacy and the sensitivity of personal information. As lawyers, we must keep confidential all information we receive within a lawyer-client relationship. We are committed to protecting any personal information we hold. This Privacy Policy outlines how we manage your personal information and safeguard your privacy.

Your Privacy Rights

Tuhin & Partners is responsible for the personal information we collect and hold. To ensure this accountability, we have developed this policy and trained our lawyers and support staff about our policies and practices.

Why Does Tuhin & Partners Need Personal Information

Tuhin & Partners provides legal services and products to many clients. In doing so, it produces direct marketing materials concerning its services and developments in the law.

What personal information do we collect?

Personal information is any information that identifies you or by which your identity could be deduced. We need to collect and use your personal information to provide legal services.

How do we collect your personal information?

We collect information only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way. Wherever possible, we collect your personal information directly from you at the start of a service and during our representation.

Sometimes, we may obtain information about you from other sources, for example: 

  • your insurance company;
  • your real estate agent in a property transaction;
  • from a government agency or registry;
  • your employer, if we are acting for you, at its request;
  • your accountant/auditor;
  • your bank;
  • or in any other form to serve you as our client.


We usually ask you to consent expressly if we collect, use, or disclose your personal information. We ask for your consent in writing, but in some circumstances, we may accept your oral consent. Sometimes, your license may be implied through your conduct with us.

Use of Your Information

We use your personal information to provide legal advice and services to you, administer our client (time and billing databases), and include you in any direct service activities. If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive information about our services or new developments in the law, we will not send any further material.

Tuhin & Partners does not disclose your personal information to any third party to enable them to market their products and services. For example, we do not provide our client mailing lists to other law firms or businesses.

Disclosure of your Personal Information

Under certain circumstances, Tuhin & Partners will disclose your personal information:

  • when we are required or authorized by law to do so, for example, if a court issues an order; 
  • when you have consented to the disclosure;
  • When the legal services we are providing to you require us to give your information to third parties (for example, a lender in a real estate mortgage transaction), your consent will be implied unless you tell us otherwise;
  • where it is necessary to establish or collect fees;
  • If we engage a third party to provide administrative services to us (like computer backup services or archival file storage) and our privacy policy binds the third party;
  • If we engage expert witnesses on your behalf;
  • If we retain other law firms at your request and on your behalf;
  • If the information is Publicly Available Personal Information.

Updating Your Information

The data must be accurate and up-to-date since we use your personal information to provide legal services. If any of your information changes during the course of the service, please inform us so that we can make any necessary changes.

Is My Personal Information Secure?

Tuhin & Partners takes all reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from loss, unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure. Among the steps taken to protect your information are:

  • premises security;
  • restricted file access to personal information;
  • Deploying technological safeguards like security software and firewalls to prevent hacking or unauthorized computer access;
  • Internal password and security policies.

Access to Your Personal Information

You may ask for access to any personal information we hold about you.

Summary information is available on request. More detailed requests that require archive or other retrieval costs may be subject to our regular professional and disbursement fees.

Correcting Errors

If Tuhin & Partners holds information about you and you can establish that it needs to be more accurate, complete and up-to-date, Tuhin & Partners will take reasonable steps to correct it.

Can I be denied access to my Personal Information?

Your rights to access your personal information are not absolute. We may deny access when:

  • It is required or authorized by law (for example, when a record containing personal information about you is protected by solicitor-client privilege);
  • To do so would reveal confidential commercial information, and the personal data cannot be severed from the record;
  • To do so could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual, and the personal information cannot be severed from the record or
  • The information was generated in the course of a formal dispute resolution process.
  • We shall explain why we deny your request for access to or refuse a request to correct information. Tuhin & Partners does not use your Social Insurance Number to identify or organise the information we hold upon you.

Can I request anonymity?

Whenever it is legal and practicable, we may offer the opportunity to deal with general inquiries without providing your name (for example, by accessing available information on our website).

Communicating with Us

You should be aware that e-mail is not a 100% secure medium, and you should be mindful of this when contacting us to send personal or confidential information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Since Tuhin & Partners regularly reviews its policies and procedures, we may change our Privacy Policy occasionally.

If you have any questions or wish to access your personal information, please get in touch with our Privacy Contact at Office No. 305 (2nd floor), 3/B, Purana Paltan, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Employment Inquiries

If you apply to Tuhin & Partners for a job, we must consider your personal information as part of our review process. We typically retain information from candidates after making a decision unless you ask us not to keep the information. If we offer you a job, which you accept, the information will be retained by our privacy procedures for employee records.
