Purposes for which we will use your personal data
We have set out below a description of the ways we may use your personal data. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.
We always strive to provide you with choices regarding the uses of your personal data, particularly where we market our services and events to you.
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Marketing and Communications Data to form a view on the legal services and events that we feel may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which legal services and events may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You may receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us in the past or if we have provided legal services to you in the past or if you have contacted us for another reason and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
Where you opt out of receiving marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us where the processing of such data was necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, altered, disclosed, used or accessed in an unauthorised way.
Our technical security measures include password protection for our IT systems and documents, anonymization and pseudonymisation of documents where possible.
Our organisational security measures include security measures for our cloud infrastructures and IT services, limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, volunteers and other third parties who have a business need to know (they will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality). We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
