Those with whom we share it. All our digital data is stored off site at a secure data centre. Otherwise your data is only shared with those with whom we have to share it for the purposes of the matter we are conducting for our client - for example the Courts, our client’s barrister, his mortgagee, insurance company or the other people involved in the matter.

Why we need your data. We need your data to allow us to conduct the matter on which our client has instructed us.
