By giving me your phone number, you are permitting me to leave messages on your voicemail should i not be able to get hold of you, unless you state otherwise.

I am duty bound to breach confidentiality if there is a legal requirement for me to do so, such as where the Children's Act applies or a court order is issued, or if i have good reason to believe that significant harm to you or another person may arise should i not disclose that information.
