WHAT WE DO # 3 :

Data Privacy & Security - Safe & Secure :


How AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ and its subsidiaries honor Privacy Rights & Security ?


Most data privacy laws require transparency about how a company collects information and how that information will be treated. AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ provides privacy notices to all individuals who share their personal data with the company. These privacy notices include a plain language explanation of how the company uses data, what rights data subjects have related to their data, and how to exercise rights. AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ has taken all measures to safeguard information. The website is heavily protected like internet banking with leading bank institutions. Our operations are secured by 256-bit SSL, the highest security in the industry. The security of the site remains constant in our attention.


What is data privacy ?


Data privacy refers to the right of an individual to have control over how their personal information is collected and used. Many countries around the world have enacted laws that protect the privacy of their residents. These global data privacy laws, including the EU’s GDPR Protection Regulation (GDPR), establish rules for the purpose of increasing the control individuals have over their digital data.


What data is protected ?


Personal data – also known in various countries as personal information or personally identifiable information (PII) – is any information that, alone or taken together, relates to an identified or identifiable individual. This definition is broad and includes not only names and addresses, but national ID numbers, biometric information such as fingerprints, salary, and geolocation information.

The law of veterinary malpractice is pretty much like that of its theoretical ancestor, medical malpractice. And although the numbers are tiny compared to medical malpractice, more veterinary malpractice suits are filed every year. The fact is that for a animal owner, pursuing a malpractice lawsuit is rarely practical. By the time you factor in attorney fees, and all the other miscellaneous costs of a lawsuit, the cost of going to court will probably exceed the amount eventually recovered. Many veterinarians carry malpractice insurance, and an animal owner may well be able to reach a settlement using the e-Court venue without going to a traditional court.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • According to Webster dictionary a court is " an official assembly for the transaction of judicial business". Case law means "law established by judicial decision" A judge is "a person who speaks right." The terms 'court' and 'judge' and 'right' and 'litigation' are not legally protected. Nobody has the exclusive right to the use of those words.

    On the basis of the following, AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ is referred as a private court: 1. A transparent, predictable adversarial proceeding; 2.

    Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, upon the request of either party, shall be settled by final and binding arbitration administered by AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ online under its Arbitration Rules, in lieu of litigation, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof for enforcement purposes.

  • The administration and board of the Foundation is responsible. The independent supervisory board supervises the administration. Both in terms of legal quality, the safety of the website and incoming and outgoing moneyflows. AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ has taken measures to guarantee the legal quality ( view also selection procedures ), these include: 1. The selected judges and/or arbitrators are specialized in civil law. 2.

To be valid and therefore legally binding, five conditions must be met, please view conditions. This means that cooperation of the other party can be enforced according to and in which province respective parties reside. Also read verdict .

    AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ provides a pre-arbitration agreement which the Parties sign online. In this agreement the Parties agree to abide by AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠'s Arbitration Rules and to be legally bound by the arbitrator's decision.

    The arbitration decisions made by the arbitrators on AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ are enforceable in courts of law in Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, and 144 other countries that are signatories to the New York Convention. A list of the signatory countries is available on the UNCITRAL website

  • AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ has taken all measures to safeguard information. The website is heavily protected like internet banking with leading banking institutions. The security of the site remains constant in our attention.

    The SSL protocol is used by millions of e-Business providers to protect their customers ensuring their online transactions remain confidential. In order to be able to use the SSL protocol, a web server requires the use of a SSL certificate. Sites will get SSL encryption to cover any area that involves an exchange of data including login boxes, credit card payments, or any personal information. All web browsers have the ability to interact with SSL secured sites so long as the sites SSL is from a recognized Certificate Authority. The Internet has successfully created many new global business opportunities for enterprises conducting online commerce. However, that growth has also attracted fraudsters and cyber criminals.

    The increasing awareness of online fraudsters and cyber criminals has presented an opportunity for ecommerce providers to capitalize on consumer fears by displaying trust indicators. Just like the real world, people need to be confident before they proceed down an unknown path. When a SSL Digital Certificate is installed on a web site, users can see a green padlock icon inside the browser. View also Video: Who will be deciding a verdict?

  • Depending on the wishes of the Parties to the arbitration, AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ will either assign an experienced arbitration attorney or a retired judge from AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠'s list of arbitrators that have been vetted and pre-approved by AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠'s advisors; these advisors can be found on our "Advisors & Arbitrators" page. Or the Parties can choose their preferred arbitrator whether they are part of our roster or not.

    In absence of an agreement between the Parties to the contrary, AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ will assign an arbitrator from its pre-approved list of arbitrators based on expertise required for that particular dispute.

  • No, but notwithstanding this AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠ attempts to offer the conflicting parties "if available and applicable " a choice of an arbitrator or judge from their own jurisdiction or from a different one. However, an arbitrator does not have to be located in your jurisdiction for the arbitration Award to be legally binding and enforceable in court in your jurisdiction. Due to various national, state and provincial arbitration laws and The Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards it is irrelevant where the arbitrator lives or where the arbitrator served on the Bench. The arbitrator can even be in a different country as long as it is one of the signatory countries to the New York Convention.

  • Most types of business disputes can be resolved via AFFORDABLE.LAW ℠.

    What are my options if the other Party does not abide by the arbitrator's decision?

    This rarely happens. It is highly unlikely that the other Party would risk ignoring the Award since they agree in the pre-arbitration contract to pay for all the costs to enforce it if they don't abide by the Award, including attorney fees.

    But if it becomes necessary, you can ask a court, in a summary motion or application, to "confirm the Award" (convert it into a judgment) and then enforce it just like you would any court judgment (e.g. seize assets, garnish bank accounts). If the Award is for a local dispute (not international), it can be confirmed and enforced under that country's or state's/province's applicable arbitration Act. If the Award is for a cross-border commercial dispute, it can be confirmed and enforced in any of the 149 countries that are signatories to the New York Convention.

    Although confirmation of the Award requires judicial involvement, it is typically a summary proceeding which is relatively quick and inexpensive - it is NOT litigation and NO trial is required. The various state/provincial and national arbitration Acts (legislation on arbitration) have laws dealing with arbitration awards that express a presumption that courts will convert ("confirm") an arbitration "award" (the arbitrators' decision) into a court judgment on a summary application or motion to the court, unless there are extenuating circumstances such as fraud, corruption, prejudice, or something similar. The court plays a mostly administrative role in confirming the Award. The Party simply has to follow the applicable procedures and rules for this type of application to a court which has proper jurisdiction, and the confirmed Award becomes an enforceable judgment.
