Privacy, your data and Cookies

How and why we use your personal data?

The processing of your personal data may include:

  • Collecting and storing your personal data in physical and electronic format

  • Providing information to regulatory authorities or statutory bodies and our legal or other professional advisors

  • To market our services and send you information on research, events and relevant information or market trends

  • To retain a record of our dealings

  • Establish quality, training and compliance and best practice


We will initially collect basic information on you such as contact details, job role and experience under a legitimate business interest policy and will only then process and share more detailed information to third parties with your consent.

Where we have obtained your personal data from a third party, it is our policy to advise you of the source when we first communicate with you or within 30 days.


We will never sell your information to third parties or use the information for purposes that are incompatible with any of those described in this notice.


We will retain information we collect from you only where we have an on-going legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with additional services or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).


When we have no on-going legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it.

Typically we will keep personal data for 4 years with no contact.


The legal basis for using your information?

We will normally collect personal information from you where the processing is in our legitimate business interests. (for example, in connection with the Services and where permitted by law, certain marketing activities).


When required by law, we will collect personal information only where we have your consent to do so (for example, if we need to collect and process any sensitive personal information about you or seek permission to share your data). In some limited cases, it may be necessary for us to process personal information and, where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, sensitive personal information, in connection with exercising or defending legal claims (for example, where we need to take legal advice in relation to legal processing or are required by law to preserve or disclose certain information as part of the legal process).


If you do not provide the personal data necessary or withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data, this will limit our ability to support you in connection with the services we offer.
