We have your rights and needs in mind when committing to protecting your privacy.
There is no requirement for you to disclose sensitive or personal information about yourself, including your contact details when you visit the Dare2Tri website.
Should you voluntarily provide us with your personal information, you consent to Dare2Tri making use of the information to offer our products, services or assist you with an enquiry, as relevant.

1 provide products and services to you;
2 provide products and services to someone else you know (eg a family member);
3 provide information about our products services that we believe to be appropriate to you;
4 facilitate Dare2Tri internal operations, including any legal requirements; and
5 develop new or improved products and services or client needs, upon feedback from you.
We collect personal information about you during the initial enquiry stage to ascertain our ability to assist you. We retain this information for relevant future communication that you may opt into.
Upon becoming a client of Dare2Tri, we will collect all information necessary to process your legal matter. We are required by law to keep this information for seven years once your case is closed, unless you provide us with written consent to dispose of the information at a prior or later date, or otherwise deal with the material.

We may disclose information to third parties when outsourcing services, such as data storage, debt collection, bulk distribution and mailing, direct marketing, technology support services and obtaining expert help from consultants to improve our services. We have contractual agreements with our service providers to protect your information up to the same standards as if we stored the information ourselves and to prevent them using the information we provide for any purposes than our own.
There are times when we are required by law to disclose personal information, such as in the instance of an investigation into fraud, tax avoidance and evasion, bankruptcy, counter-terrorism, and other criminal matters
We take all reasonable steps to ensure that information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete, relevant (up to date) and securely stored. We strive to protect your personal details and information from loss and unauthorised access; however we cannot guarantee security 100%.
