How the law protects you
As well as our privacy promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works. We are committed to meeting our data protection obligations under the General Data Protection Regulations. This privacy notice applies to all current and former clients those who make enquiries, current and former employees, workers and contractors.

Data Protection Principles
There are six principles that we are obliged to comply with. Theses provide that the personal information that we hold about you must be:

  1. Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner;
  2. Collected only for legitimate purposes without clearly being explained to you and not further processed in a way that is incompatible with those purposes;
  3. Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to those purposes;
  4. Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;
  5. Kept in a form which permits your identification for no longer than is necessary for those purposes; and
  6. Process in a way that ensures appropriate security of the data.

Why we process personal data
We will need to collect some personal information about you to form a relationship so that we can create and maintain proper records and provide our services.  We have a legal basis for processing your information.  Where information about you is collected from a source other than you, we will tell you what that information is and where it has originated.

How your data is protected
All paper and electronic data is both stored and destroyed securely.  We protect personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised use and disclosure.

Where enquiries are made
If you provide personal data about yourself when using our website, it will only be used to respond to you.  The personal data collected will be limited to that so as to enable us to satisfy ourselves that it is a genuine enquiry and to respond to it. The personal data in relation to that enquiry will be retained for a period of six years and then destroyed. 

We will not share your personal data with any third party except as necessary to respond to a query that you have raised.  Should we need to communicate with a third party to address your enquiry we will request your consent to do so.  

Where it is necessary to communicate with third parties
There may be occasions when it is necessary for us to share your personal data with a third party to ensure that your legal interests are appropriately represented.  You will be informed at the time when this is happening, for example, instructing a barrister.  All third parties that we will have dealings with should be expected to ensure that your personal data is kept secure.

Personal data retention for clients
We reserve the right to retain file records and data where we have acted for you for a period of six years.

Clients will only receive information about our services where they have specifically requested to do so. Such consent can be withdrawn at any time.

Retention of applicant data
The data provided by applicants seeking employment will only be retained for a period of three months and will then be securely destroyed.
