Protect your business and clients’ privacy: O*NO Legal’s Privacy Prepared Health Check

Following on from Privacy Awareness Week, there’s no better time than now to make sure you’ve got your legals covered when it comes to your clients’ privacy.

But it’s no easy feat, and it can be pricey.

That’s why O*NO Legal – The Real Estate Agents’ Lawyer have created a new premium program, taking a deep dive into your privacy practices, and leaving you with a detailed action plan.

“With the publicity of data breaches on the rise and the lobbying for tighter privacy enforcements and further regulation, we felt it was important to enable more agencies to access the information required to ensure their clients’ privacy is protected,” O*NO Legal Founder Kristen Porter said.

“We designed this Privacy Prepared Health Check so agencies can better understand how they collect, use and disclose personal information and whether or not they are compliant.”

The Privacy Prepared Health Check Action Plan is a one-on-one, customised, premium service, which will leave all agencies in a position where their clients’ privacy is protected, meaning they are too.  

“They’ll be ready to take action. They’ll know what gaps and risk areas they have and receive a clear action plan to build a solid privacy framework and avoid hefty fines,” Ms Porter said.

Ms Porter said the successful running and expansion of any business would depend on how staff dealt with your clients – and this extended to their personal data and information.

“This health check is an audit and implementation system designed by our team of lawyers specifically to ensure privacy compliance in the real estate industry,” she said.

“With Privacy Prepared, not only will you avoid ‘lose your house-style’ fines, but you will protect your brand and reputation in the event of a privacy data breach, keep your clients happy and keep the Privacy Commissioner off your back.”

The Privacy Prepared Health Check starts with a one hour kick-off session where O*NO Legal discover how your agency collects, uses, discloses and stores personal information.

“We then audit your current privacy policies and procedures against the privacy and real estate licensing laws and prepare an action plan to plug any leaky holes that may leave you exposed to fines of up to $50 million,” Ms Porter said.

“Your detailed report will set out any compliance or risk gaps that you may have, with our recommendations on how to tighten up your processes and procedures.

“Then we ensure it’s put into place. Our simple step-by-step action plan will set out how to plug any privacy compliance or risk gaps so that you are Privacy Prepared.

“You then choose how you would like to implement the Action Plan. We offer customised, done-for-you packages as well as guided DIY solutions, depending on the level of service you would like.”
