We are registered with the ICO and provide a privacy notice to every client within our standard terms and conditions to explain how we use their information. We make use of template privacy notices for this purpose which detail the following information in as clear and transparent a manner as possible:
While we acknowledge that under the GDPR privacy notices should also be given to individuals whose personal data we hold because it has been given to us by someone else, generally speaking such information is held confidentially and is privileged. For example, a client may give us information about other individuals connected to their legal matter but this will typically be confidential and privileged. As such we would not be required to provide such a privacy notice under the GDPR (Article 14.5(d)). In other cases we will however take steps to provide the necessary information about how we handle personal data to other individuals within a reasonable time period of receiving it and in any event within one month (Article 14.3).
We take care to ensure that our website is secure (see above), up to date, does not infringe copyright and is compliant with SRA requirements and applicable accessibility standards. Our office manual sets out a procedure for approving web content and the standards expected in this respect.
Our website provides appropriate information to users on privacy and cookies.
