Information collection and storage

We process any personal data that we receive in accordance with the current Data Protection legislation applicable in the UK.

We may collect and process personal data concerning you and your staff in any of a number of ways, including:

  • In the course of carrying out your instructions to us;
  • By correspondence by email, telephone or other means.

The personal data we may collect will vary according to the nature of your instructions to us but may include:

  • Name and title;
  • Contact information, including telephone number, postal address and email address;
  • Information relating to your location, preferences and / or interests;
  • Employment and job application details;
  • Photographic identification (as required by the anti-money laundering regulations);
  • Financial details such as bank account details.

We are required to retain our files and the personal data they contain for no less than six years after the end of the matter on which you have instructed us.  After that, the files and your personal data will be deleted unless there are any other statutory obligations that require us to retain them.

Use of personal data

We may use your personal information:

  • To perform your lawful instructions to us;
  • To send you from time to time information regarding updates and changes to the website, our services or any technical, administrative or legal notices relating to the website and our services that we consider important for you to know; and
  • To send you information about Anderson Law LLP and how we can help you, for example, information about our publications, training and services. You can choose not to receive some of these communications by following the instructions at the bottom of these communications.

Where we use third party service providers to support our work (for example in the provision and support of our IT systems) we will ensure that they respect your personal data and act in accordance with the current Data Protection legislation.  The IT systems that we use are all based within the EEA.

We may sub-contract third party suppliers to provide services for us, including for example, the provision of website hosting and management services, technical services, collation of usage data or for running promotional campaigns.  In these circumstances, the suppliers will have access to some or all of your personal data in order to provide their services but will be contractually bound to not disclose or use your personal data for any other purpose.

Apart from the circumstances outlined above, no information concerning you or the matter with which we are dealing with on your behalf will be passed to a third party without your specific authority unless we are required to disclose it by law.

Lawful basis for processing

Unless we agree otherwise with you, our position is that as your legal advisor, we act as the data controller in respect of personal data that we receive.

  • Where our client is a company, institution or other legal entity, the lawful basis that justifies our processing will be the exercise of a legitimate interest;
  • Where our client is an individual, the lawful basis that justifies our processing will be the performance of a contract on behalf of that individual.
