Data Protection and Privacy

The firm respects your right to privacy and personal information, and takes data privacy seriously. Our Privacy Policy is based on the Kenya Data Protection Act No. 24 of 2019 which is in line with the General Data Protection Regulations of the European Union (the GDPR).  For more information see our https://cmadvocates.com/privacy-policy/.

 

Anti-Money Laundering

We abide by our anti-money laundering (AML) policies that are generally based on the highest standard and apply in relation to all of our business in all of our offices. The firm conducts client due diligence enquiries on each new client and persons connected with them and conducts ongoing monitoring of existing clients. These enquiries are based on the requirements of the Proceeds of Crime and Anti-Money Laundering Act, CAP 59B of the Laws of Kenya. Additional information may also be obtained if required by any applicable local rules. Where necessary for these purposes, we may seek relevant information from third-party data suppliers. Where individuals have supplied personal data for this purpose we will only use it for that purpose and will keep it only as long as the relevant AML and data protection legislation requires.

The firm also has internal procedures to ensure that any suspicions of money laundering are reported to the appropriate authorities where there is an obligation to do so.

 

Anti-bribery and Anti-corruption

The firm has a zero-tolerance policy towards bribery or corruption by, or on behalf of, any member firm. This applies to all members of the firm including partners, associates and employees, and to third parties providing services on our behalf.

We are committed to:

  1. conducting business in a manner that complies with applicable laws and is consistent with the highest ethical standards including, among other things, standards intended to prevent bribery and corruption; and
  2. using our best endeavors to ensure that those who perform services for and on behalf of the firm are aware of and share our commitment to conducting business ethically.

We will not use third parties or intermediaries to engage on our behalf in unethical practices that would be prohibited under any applicable laws if undertaken by us. We expect that all third-parties and intermediaries that we engage will conduct themselves accordingly when acting on behalf or for the benefit of the firm.

The firm is committed to transparency on its ethical standards and anti-bribery and anti-corruption initiatives, and has established procedures that are described in our Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy to encourage all members of the firm to report instances or allegations of policy violations.
