Recordings and Transcripts of Online Meetings
The CLPM virtual services look to provide support to clients via online meetings. Your permission will be sought at th start of online meetings to ensure that you agree to the session being recorded. The following questions have been considered in making an informed decision about whether to record client meetings as part of our virtual support services.
What is our reason for recording the meeting?
Our client meetings are recorded because:
i) This is an integral part of the virtual service. You may wish to revisit the recording at a later date to ensure you have understood the suggested advice.
ii) There will be a great deal of information exchanged in the course of the meeting. Recording the meeting allows you to refresh yourself of the advice at a later date.
iii) Recording the meeting means that if one of you cannot attend the meeting (eg if you are a couple where one participant has an alternative engagement) you have an option to access the information at a later date.
iv) In the event of a dispute, both you and CLPM have an accurate record of the discussion.
Where will we store your video, and for how long?

This system can only be accessed by the CLPM team member undertaking the recording or another authorised team member. The recording can be shared by the CLPM team member with you. You will receive a link for viewing but which should not be used for downloading to share.
We will only keep the video for as long as it is needed. As a matter of policy, CLPM will retain videos for 1 year after the end of your engagement with us, after which time the video will be deleted. This retention timeline has been determined based on good industry practice for a defects period.
