We may share personal information with other Nexia International member firms where necessary for administrative purposes and to provide professional services to our clients.
We use third-party service providers (which may include cloud services) as well as servers to store and process the information we collect. We are satisfied that we, and the third party service providers we use, have suitable security and information handling protocols in accordance with generally accepted standards of security (as would be reasonable in the circumstances), and the information we hold, and held by the third party service providers on our behalf is subject to confidentiality obligations.
Under the Information Privacy Principles, we must take reasonable care to ensure that personal information is protected against loss, misuse or unauthorised disclosure, and we will not keep personal information for longer than necessary for the purpose of which it was collected.
