What personal data do we collect and process?
We may collect, store, and process your name, employer details, address, date of birth, email, telephone, contract data, details of services we provide to you, signatures, identification documents, occupation and interactions with you by phone or email.
Why do we collect personal data about you, the lawful basis for processing your data and who we share it with?
We collect personal data about our clients to provide consultancy services to you and to meet our legal obligations.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is processing necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party. There may also be limited circumstances where our legal basis for processing is your consent (where we have sought it and you have provided it to us), in which case you can withdraw your consent at any time.
We may send you emails through our email service provider. They and any other third parties who process data on our behalf may only process this data to provide us with their services, and for no other purpose.
For potential, current and past clients, we process data:
- to market the services of our firm
- to provide you with updates and newsletters to which you have subscribed
The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest in the administration and operation of our business as well as our legitimate interest in marketing and promoting our consulting services.
We do not send out newsletters currently, but should we commence, we shall write to you specifically seeking your consent to share information such as your name and email address with our newsletter services provider who sends out our newsletters. This provider is not permitted to use this data other than on our behalf.
We will only use your data for the purpose it was provided and in ways compatible with that stated purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Transfers of data outside the European Economic Area
We will not transfer any data outside of the European Economic Area, unless specifically requested to do so by you, depending on the circumstances of your transaction.
