You can request a restriction of processing or the porting of data.  You have the right to withdraw your consent at any point bearing in mind of our contract with you.  You have the right if your request is not dealt with to complain to the Information Commissioners office in the UK which is the supervising office.  In your case the provision of personal data is a contractual requirement or required for entering into a contract with us or continuing with your existing contract.

There are six lawful bases for this firm holding your data namely: –

  1. Consent
  2. Performance of a contract. It is vital to hold and deal with your data in order to perform our contract with you.
  3. To allow compliance with our legal obligations ie the holding of your data in accordance with the Law Society obligations to hold your material for six years after the cessation of your case.

  5. The legitimate interests of the data controller; or

In each case the purpose for which you are submitting your details will be made clear. For example, to receive bulletins or to be sent information on events. We may also send you firm related announcements from time to time. We may also use third parties to process or administer the data on our behalf, for example to send out invitations to events but such third parties are not permitted to use the data for their own purposes. We do monitor visits to our website so that we can improve our service and make the site easier to navigate. The information we use to do so does not identify you as an individual. If we are holding any of your documents in our dead filing system this will be for the purposes of complying with the Law Society/SRA requirements that your documents are held for a period of six years from the end of your case. As you are aware your papers at the end of this period (as you have been notified unless you wish to collect them) will be destroyed by an authorised third party under our GDPR policy so that your documents and data are fully protected.
