The information you provide including personal information will be used by us primarily to provide legal services to you. We process personal data to comply with common law or statutory obligation and our lawful basis for processing this information is Legal obligation. This will include updating and enhancing client records, analysis to help us manage our practice, statutory returns and legal and regulatory compliance. Your information will be kept confidential and secure. Our use of this information is subject to your instructions, the Data Protection Regulations (under which we are a Data Controller) and our duty of confidentiality. You have a right of access under data protection legislation to the personal data that we hold about you. Please note that our work for you may require us to give information to third parties such as expert witnesses and other professional advisers. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all personal data you supply to us, and we will not be held liable for any errors unless you have advised us previously of any changes in your personal data. In the interest of speed or controlling cost we may outsource some of our typing or other administrative functions to a third party. Confidentiality agreements are in place with any service providers we use and they are obliged as we are to keep your data both confidential and secure. Please advise us if you object to this practice by e-mail: email@example.com. We may need to make credit decisions about you (for example in relation to payment of costs) and we may search the files of credit reference agencies who will record any credit searches on their file. As we are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulations Authority, are accredited under the Law Society’s Practice Management Scheme (LEXCEL) and are contracted by the Legal Aid Agency, we are subject to audits or quality checks on our practice. These external firms or organisations are required to maintain confidentiality in relation to any files that they see in the course of their work. If you object to having your file reviewed, please inform us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
