We will collect data throughout the time that there is a business relationship between us and the client. Data will be collected over the phone, by e-mail, during face-to-face meetings, by the completion of facts-finds or proposal forms, or by online submission.

 

How do we hold client data?
Client data is held on paper files and electronically. We take the security and confidentiality of client data very seriously. Our office is secured to a high standard. Electronic data is backed up daily, and our IT system incorporates a high level of encryption and security to protect against unauthorised access.

 

Why might we share client data with other parties?

Client’s right to access the data
Our clients have the right to request a copy of their data that we hold. If a client believes that information we hold is incorrect or incomplete we will amend the data on request.

Client’s right to object to data being processed or to withdraw consent
Our clients have the right to object to us processing their data and to withdraw their consent for us to do so. In this case, we will stop using the data, but this will mean that we can no longer act for that client. However, there may be legitimate circumstances that mean that we are compelled to continue to use the data.

 

Client’s right to have data “erased”
Our clients have the right to request that all data that we hold be deleted from our records. If this is done then we will no longer be able to act for the client. However, there may be legitimate circumstances that mean that we are compelled to retain the data.

Marketing
We do not use client data for the purposes of marketing without the client’s consent. We use client data solely for the purposes of providing the products and services that the client has requested from us.

Client’s right to complain
If a client feels that we are not handling data correctly we would request that the client contact us in the first instance. However the client has the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office
