We may collect, store, and use information about you in the course of promoting and providing our services. The information which we collect relates to:
- your name and job title
- your contact information including your email address and place of business address
- our relationship with you.
Please note that we do not collect any special categories of personal data. This includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic or biometric data.
How do we collect information about you?
Typically we will collect information from you when you contact us directly or provide information in order for us to provide our products and services. We normally collect information from and about you through direct interactionswhen you give us your personal information by filling in forms or during correspondence with us. This includes when you:
- engage us to provide a service; or
- give us your contact details in order to discuss our services.
What we do with the information we gather
We only obtain, use and keep personal information where we need it for a specific purpose. We set out below the ways in which we plan to use your personal information. We are only able to use your personal information if we have a proper legal reason or justification for doing so. This is called a legal basis and the regulations require that we have a legal basis so that your privacy is protected. Most commonly we will use your information in the following ways:
- We have a legal obligation. We may need to use your personal information to comply with laws that assist in the prevention of financial crime and to comply with regulatory obligations. For example this might include confirming your identity
- We have a contract with you. For example, we have agreed to provide advice to or services for you and have a contractual agreement to do this.
- We have a legitimate interest in processing the information and your interests and fundamental right do not override those interests. In this case it is necessary for our legitimate interests - to develop our services and grow our business - that we process your information, and that we are able to contact you about products and services we think you may be interested in.
We will use your personal information for the reason for which we collected it. We will only use it for another reason if we believe that new reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we do need to use your personal information for a non-related purpose we will tell you about it and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
We can use your personal information to send you communications if we believe we have a 'legitimate interest'. We are required to make an assessment with regards to the benefits for us weighed against how appropriate it is to contact you in this way and whether it would be unfair to you. We believe that as a commercial enterprise we have a legitimate interest in contacting you about our products or services but we will only do so if we decide it would be of interest to or beneficial for you.
You are free to change your mind at any time
If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by writing to or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties.
Storing your information
Where we have a contract or legal obligation with you we need to keep your personal information (updated, to ensure accuracy) to fulfil this. We also need to comply with EU and UK law, which often requires us to keep certain records - which will include certain personal information - for several years. Our policy is to keep records regarding our engagements for a reasonable period after you are no longer a client. We will ensure all records are safely destroyed if we no longer need to retain them.
Where we have a non-contractual relationship with you, we will retain your contact information for as long as you would like us to, and we will give you the option to unsubscribe from any marketing communication.
You are provided with a number of different rights under the data protection laws in relation to your personal information. These allow you:
- to access your information
- to request we correct your information
- to request that we erase your information
- to object to the processing of your information
- to request a restriction in the processing of your information
- to request a transfer of your information
- to withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights please write to David Seligman, 2nd floor, 37 Upper Brook Street, London, W1K 7PR. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information or to exercise any of the other rights. We may, however, charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive (or we may refuse to deal with your request). We may also need to seek further information from you to confirm your identity before we release any personal information. This does not affect your right to make a complaint.
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to us as soon as possible, at the above address or email us at email@example.com. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. We have a procedure to deal with any suspected personal data breach and in such an event would notify you, and other regulators, where we are legally required to do so.
