Cookies and Privacy Statement

LEXLAW (we, us and our) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This statement sets out the basis on which any personal information we collect from you, or that you provide to us, on our website will be used.

This statement also explains how we use cookies and how we may collect and process information about you through our website, our online services and our other internet processes.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites you visit. Cookies help make this website work and provide information to us about how users interact with our site. We use this information to improve our website.

The cookies we use provide us with anonymised and technical information. They record the IP address (a unique number which identifies your computer and its location on the internet) of visitors to our site. This is principally so that we can make sure that it is easy to navigate, identify the areas that are of particular interest to visitors and generally improve the site and our services. The information that we collect in this process will not identify you as an individual. We do not seek to identify individual visitors unless they volunteer their contact details through one of the forms on the site. In some circumstances our records will identify organisations visiting our site and we may use that information in managing our relationship with those organisations, for example, in considering how to develop the services that we offer them.

By using our website you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

When you accessed this website our cookies were placed on your computer. If you wish to remove them, you can manage this via the settings on your browser, but note that this may impact your ability to utilise this and other web sites. The way to clear cookies varies from one browser to another. For example on Internet Explorer, go to Tools; Internet options; Settings; View files; then select and delete. Or on Mozilla Firefox, click on Tools; Privacy; then choose from the various options.

Submitting your contact details

Various forms on our site invite you to submit your contact details and other information about yourself or your organisation, or to send us emails which will, of course, also identify you.

How we use this information

In each case, the purpose for which you are invited to give us information is clear and we also indicate which of the requested information is essential for the relevant purpose and which is optional; fields for essential information are marked with an asterisk. We will not use your information for purposes that are not clear when you provide your details, and will not disclose it outside LEXLAW, except to service providers acting on our behalf or in other very limited circumstances, for example, with your agreement or where we are legally obliged to do so.

Third parties

We are required by anti-money laundering legislation to conduct client due diligence, including verifying the identity of our clients before providing any services or in some cases before providing further services. Where necessary, we seek relevant information from third party data suppliers.

We will disclose any of your personal information to any third party where we are under a duty to do so in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or protect any of our rights, property or safety (or those of our members or customers). We may also disclose your personal information to third parties who provide services to us. When we do so they are required to act in accordance with our instructions and keep your personal information secure.

Transfer of information abroad

When you provide information through the site you will be providing it to LEXLAW as a whole, and should be aware that it may be accessed from countries whose laws provide various levels of protection for personal data, not always equivalent to the level of protection that may be provided in your own country.

If we need to transfer your personal information to countries which do not provide the same level of data protection as the UK we will put a contract in place to ensure that your information is adequately protected.

When you give us information about another individual for business purposes, you do so on the basis that the other individual has agreed and has consented to the processing of his or her personal data and to the transfer of his or her information abroad and to your receiving on his or her behalf any data protection notices.

Security

We have robust information security management systems in place to protect your personal information.

Contact

If you have any questions about our privacy policies, want to exercise your right to see a copy of the information that we hold about you, or think that information we hold about you may need to be corrected, want to delete all or any part of it or to object to the processing on legitimate grounds, please contact us by email to privacy@lexlaw.co.uk 
with enquiry topic “Data privacy”, or alternatively send a signed letter addressed to the Principal. See the Contact Us section of our website for contact details.

We may contact you by mail, telephone or e-mail with information about legal services, materials, news or training that may be of interest to you. By providing us with your address, telephone number or email address you consent to being contacted by these methods for these purposes. If you no longer wish to receive information or marketing from us please contact us at privacy@lexlaw.co.uk 

If your personal details change, if you change your mind about any of your marketing preferences or if you have any queries about how we use your information, please let us know by contacting us at privacy@lexlaw.co.uk 

If you want to know what personal information we hold on you, you may be entitled to access it under the terms of the Data Protection Act. If you want to exercise this right, please write to the Principal enclosing a cheque for the administration fee of £10 made payable to LEXLAW.

This privacy policy may change from time to time and therefore you should review it regularly. We will of course notify you of any changes where we are required to do so. You can check our privacy policy at this page at any time. This policy was last updated in May 2012.
