When you submit personal information to Nomos, or authorize us to obtain personal information from other sources, you are agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Collection of Personal Information

Nomos will inform you of the purposes for which we collect, use and share personal information before or at the time the information is collected. In addition to the purposes identified below, we may inform you of other purposes from time to time, either in writing or orally.

Nomos most often collects personal information directly from you or your authorized representatives.  For example, Nomos may collect personal information about you when you correspond with us (whether by phone, letter, e-mail or via the Nomos website), request litigation funding via Nomos’s website or meet with a representative of Nomos. Nomos may also collect personal information from third party public sources, such as the internet, media, references, or court or government registries. For example, Nomos may collect personal information about you from a publicly maintained record of property ownership and encumbrances.

Generally, the type of information Nomos collects and holds about clients, service providers (such as lawyers and experts) and other business contacts will include your name, mailing and email addresses, telephone number, job title and organization/employer name. Nomos does not collect sensitive personal information (such as information about your health or religion) unless it is reasonably necessary for the services Nomos provides and you consent to the collection.

In order to provide clients with our services, Nomos also collects information relating to the legal proceedings and, if applicable, other individuals involved in those proceedings, for which funding is sought or being provided. Nomos only collects personal information using fair and lawful means.

We may collect information from third-party agencies to manage business and credit risk; collect outstanding debt; detect, prevent, manage, and investigate or protect against fraud or other unauthorised or illegal activity.
