We are strongly committed to data security and we take reasonable appropriate steps to protect the personal information we hold from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, alteration or corruption. We have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure that information.
10. HOW LONG WILL WE KEEP IT FOR
Your personal information will be retained, usually in computer or manual files, only for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected, or as required by law, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you may hold with us. For example:
11. INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM YOU CONCERNING OTHER PEOPL
Where you provide personal information to us about other people, we accept it on the understanding that you have made the other person aware about how we will use and disclose their information.
Our services are not aimed at children. In matters involving children they will be represented by parents or legal guardians. Where we are acting in matters involving children we will explain why their personal data is needed and how it will be used.
You have certain rights under existing data protection laws, including the right to (upon written request) access a copy of your personal data that we are processing. If you are based within the UK or the EEA or within another jurisdiction having similar data protection laws, in certain circumstances you will also have the following rights (effective 25 May 2018):
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
Depending on the nature and extent of your request, we may be unable to continue acting for you. In this event, you will remain liable for our fees and disbursements incurred before the request was made.
As we are a firm of solicitors, we are not required to give you information in certain circumstances where personal information we process is collected and processed by us in the context of our work advising and representing our clients. Some of the rights above may therefore not be applicable to you (or to all of the information about you that we are processing) due to the application of one or more of the following Exemptions:-
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
If we do not receive the information we require in order to verify the identity of our client or the individuals who control or own our client, we cannot act for that client.
We will not be able to act for an individual if we do not receive the personal data we require to communicate with that individual.
We do not make decisions based solely on automated data processing, including profiling.
Whenever you receive marketing communications from us, you will be able to indicate whether you wish to update your details or preferences.
When we collect contact information (for example when you pass us your business card at one of our events or meetings) we may add your details to our marketing database and mailing list. In all other cases, if we intend to process your information for marketing we will inform you before collecting your information.
