PRIVACY AND COOKIES

General

We are committed to not actively attempting to obtain any information about you, and to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This policy, read together with the Terms of Use as published in a separate section of our website and any other documents referred to, sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us will be processed by us.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

Information we may collect from you

When you contact us through our website, we need to know your name, postal address, e – mail address and telephone number. We also need to know how you would like us to contact you, and brief details of your potential claim or matter.

If you notify us that any of the information which we hold about you is incorrect or misleading, we will take prompt action to correct or amend the information.

We undertake to keep information about you confidential and in a way which does not enable you to be identified from the information displayed on our site.

Use of personal information

We will acquire, store, process, use and disclose personal data about you for the purpose of contacting you with a view to providing legal services. However, please note that no formal advocate and client relationship is formed purely as a result of your communication. This advocate and client relationship is only formed when we accept your instructions and complete the formalities required to set you up as a client of the firm.

We may occasionally run events and promotional activities jointly with other trusted professional parties. While we do not share our contact database with them, nor with other guests to our events, if you accept an invitation, your name may be included in an attendee list which is shared with our co-hosts and with other guests.

We may be forced to disclose information by the government, police or other enforcement agencies or in connection with the investigation of unlawful activities. Third parties may also unlawfully intercept or access transmission or private communications. These therefore are exceptions to our policy of maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information.

IP addresses and other computer data

We may automatically collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and internal analysis. This is statistical data about our users` browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
