Personal Data You Provide
Your privacy is important to us. By providing personal information such as your name and e-mail address via the forms on this website, you agree to us contacting you with regard to the information provided.
How We Use Your Personal Data
We use the data you provide via this website to:
- communicate with you, for example: we use contact details such as email address or phone number when responding to enquiries made via online forms
- monitor website trends, for example: we use Google Analytics and ReachEdge to help us aggregate traffic so we can monitor how the website is being used
- operate our business more effectively, for example: we seek feedback and use this to help improve our service
Our “Lawful Reasons” For Processing Your Personal Data
The “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over our processing of your personal information. The GDPR requires us to declare which of six “lawful reasons” we are relying on when we are processing your personal data: we operate on the basis of “consent” and “legitimate interest” when communicating with you (e.g. when responding to your enquiry).
How Long We Keep Personal Data
To comply with Solicitors Regulation Authority rules we keep all records of our communications with clients (and prospective clients) for up to 15 years. This is to ensure that if there were any problems or issues in the future we can refer back to the communication that happened at the time.
Transfer of Personal Data
Some basic personal information that you send to us via our website is held on our servers (i.e. records of transcripts with our chat function and enquiries submitted via our contact form). However, your personal data will never be sold or transferred to an organisation outside the UK or the EU.
Questions or Complaints
In the first instance we hope you will contact us directly with any questions or complaints (contact details are displayed prominently on this website). However, legal rights regarding privacy are the remit of the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and you will find more information about how to complain here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
Our Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to monitor how our website is being used so we can make improvements. Our use of Google Analytics requires us to pass to Google your IP address (but no other information) – Google uses this information to prepare site usage reports for us, but Google may also share this information with other Google services. In particular, Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. Related information:
