The Data We Collect About You
The information we collect from you may include, but is not limited to personal contact details such as name, title, address, telephone number, email address and your preferences for receiving marketing related information from us.
We will only collect the minimum amount of personal data needed to enable us to carry out any legitimate activities of which you are aware.
We may from time send newsletters, details of events or other materials which we think may be of interest, to people with whom we have a relationship. Such communications may include a marketing element and we consider that it is in our legitimate interest to develop our business in this way since the impact of such communications on the recipients is likely to be minimal and the information supplied will hopefully be of use to our contacts and clients. We will always offer an opt out channel with any such communications. It is your choice whether or not to provide us with personal information.
There are instances where we would have to comply with the law and deal with your personal data for regulatory, legal and compliance purposes. These may include:
- compliance with specific legal and regulatory requirements including our obligations to report suspicions of money laundering, the financing of terrorism and other forms of fraud;
- gathering information as part of investigations by regulatory bodies or in connection with legal proceedings or requests; and
- when we are investigating complaints.
By providing your personal information to us, you agree that we may collect and use all personal information you provide to us in the ways described in this Policy. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, please do not provide personal information to us.

Use of Personal Details
Our database of personal details (however collected) is used by us for client administration purposes and to enable us to provide any services which you request from us.

For your own safety and security you should not provide information about yourself on these areas of our website or via other social networking applications we may use from time to time.

Contacting us about your information
Where you have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. To withdraw your consent, please contact us by email or post using the contact details above. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law. You also have the right to:
- Request access to the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully.
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes.
- Request erasure of your personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it.
- Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may be able to demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
- Request the transfer of your personal information to you or to a third party.
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
- if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;
- where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
- where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
- you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
If you would like to see the information we hold about you or would like to be removed from our database and/or any mailing lists, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will not normally have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information you are requesting (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests as soon as possible and in any event within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or if you have made a number of separate requests. In this case, we will notify you of the likely timescale and keep you updated.
To help us keep our records up-to-date, we would be grateful if you would let us know as soon as any of your contact details change or if you notice any inaccuracies in them. Please also let us know if you no longer wish to receive information or services from us. You can do so at any time using the contact details set out above.
