Privacy (transparency) notice pursuant to General Data Protection Regulation Arts 13 and 14

As a firm of solicitors we obtain and process personal data in different ways depending upon the purpose of the processing and way in which we obtained your personal data.

In most circumstances your data will only be processed within the UK or EEA. If for any reason we need to have your data processed elsewhere we will (unless prevented by eg client confidentiality) inform you of that, any privacy risks involved and what we have done to minimise those risks.

You can at any time ask us to tell you what personal data relating to you we hold.

You also have the right to ask us to rectify your data if it is inaccurate, erase it or restrict the processing of it. In some circumstances you can ask us to provide it to you in a format which would allow you to transfer it digitally to another.

Where we have requested and you have given us consent to process your data you may withdraw that consent at any time.

Were our business to be sold all your data would be transferred to the purchaser so that they could use it in the same way as we do now.

If you are at all concerned about our processing of your data please let us know by contacting our Data Protection Officer Andy Munden on andymunden@warnergoodman.co.uk. You may also complain about it to the Office of the Information Commissioner (“ICO”).

Client Data

Purpose. We process your data in order to act for you and so that we can contact you, bill you and collect payment from you.

Legitimate Interest. We have a legitimate interest in doing that and it is also necessary to allow us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you.

Marketing. If we were to use your data  in order to send you marketing material about services other than those that we have previously provided, or discussed with you, we will only do so with your consent. That consent can be withdrawn by you at any time.

Those with whom we share it. All our digital data is stored off site at a secure “server farm”. Otherwise your data is only shared with those with whom we have to share it for the purposes of your matter or your contract with us—for example HM Land Registry, the Courts, your barrister, your mortgagee, insurance company or the other people involved in your transaction.

Retention. Your data will be retained in our systems for as long as we hold your file after completion of the matter. Further information on this can be found in your terms of engagement letter and the accompanying terms of business.

Why we need your data. Without your data we would not have the information necessary to be able to act for you.

Where we get it. Most of your data held by us will have come from you. Some may have been obtained from eg an involved estate agent or public registers or other people and organisations involved in your matter.

Third Party and incidental individual data

Purpose. We process your data only where it is necessary in connection with a client matter. Perhaps because we need to contact you, you are a witness, the other party to a case or transaction, or eg a beneficiary under a will.

Marketing. We will not use your data for marketing purposes unless we first obtain your consent. You can withdraw that consent at any time.

Retention. Your data will be retained in our systems for as long as we hold the relevant  file after completion of the matter. Further information on this can be found in your terms of engagement letter and the accompanying terms of business.

Those with whom we share it. All our digital data is stored off site at a secure “server farm”. Otherwise your data is shared with those who need it for the purposes of the commercial cooperation between our respective organisations or where necessary in connection with any client matter to which you are relevant. We may also share your data with others to whom we are recommending the goods or services of your organisation.

Retention. Your contact and other data will only be held for as long as you retain your role in your organisation or, if it was relevant to a client matter, for so long as we store the file and digital records of that matter.

Why we need your data. You data is needed principally so that we can contact you and otherwise for the purpose set out above.
