Personal data” in this Privacy Notice has the same meaning as in the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679/EU (GDPR). Essentially, it means information which is connected to a living individual who can be identified from that information, either by itself or when combined with other data likely to come into our possession. Personal data can include information collected by certain cookies or tracking technologies if it builds up a profile of you.

We collect and use personal data in order to carry out a business which provides legal services. Any other activities and processing which we carry out is to support this primary aim. Our purposes and lawful grounds for processing your personal data vary, depending on our relationship with you and on the activity in question. You can find out more information on this by clicking on the relevant links in the ‘What we collect and how we use it’ tab. We will never sell your personal data.

We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected and continue to process it, and to satisfy any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

Where applicable we respect your data protection rights, including to request access, rectification, restriction, deletion or “porting” of your data, and to object to our use of your data, including for marketing. We do not make decisions about you based on electronic profiling. You also have the right to complain to the applicable data protection Supervisory Authority (see the ‘Your Rights’ tab), but please contact us first so that we can address your concerns.
