Privacy Policy

We take our regulatory requirements very seriously and these include provisions for protection of keeping your information confidentiality and your personal data, within our privacy policy. Your continued use of this website is deemed as acceptance of this policy, which, we reserve the right to amend, as required, without notice. Our Privacy Policy sets out our practices regarding your personal data (i.e. information about you as an individual) and how we will treat it. We will only use personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable current data protection laws. For full details of our policy, please request a copy of our Client Guide – Terms of Business by emailing info@barrister-directclaims.com. What follows is a mere summary of our policy, relating to our website.

 

We may use your personal data (as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation) for the purpose of client identity verification, the provision of any of our services, the administration of files and records, legal and regulatory compliance and the marketing and promotion of our services, as well as informing you of relevant news and legal developments. We may ask you to provide additional information for marketing and research purposes – see our Marketing below.  The information will be held in hard copy and electronic form.

 

As a client, our work for you may require us to provide information to third parties such as Experts and other professional advisers. Any third party to whom we disclose information about you will be under an obligation to keep your information secure and not to use it for any purpose other than that for which it was disclosed. We may also disclose your personal data to third parties from whom we are buying a business/assets or to whom we are selling some or all of our business/assets as part of any due diligence process. Your personal data may subsequently be transferred to such third parties.

 

If you post a comment on our website or contact us through our website the information you provide will be recorded and stored. When we contact you on behalf of our clients, for example to recover monies due to our clients, we will hold information about you supplied to us by our clients and information you provide to us when we contact you. We may also be required to disclose that information to third parties e.g. court officials, but only to the extent authorised by law.

 

Our telephone calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes. We will always try and tell you in advance when a call is being recorded but this may not always be possible for technical reasons.

 

What do we use your information for?

We will use your personal data to provide you with the services you have asked us to provide, for dealing with your question or enquiry and where you are a supplier contacting you to request information, goods or services from you and for the purposes we have identified in this Privacy Policy.

 

We may additionally use your personal data to:

  • Provide you with legal updates relevant to you or your business;
  • Invite you to provide us with feedback;
  • Participate in events.

 

You can opt-out of receiving promotional or marketing information from emailing ‘unsubscribe’ to info@barrister-directclaims.com with your full name, address and email address.

 

When your contact details are on our database, we may try to contact you at the address we hold for you from time to time to verify the accuracy of the information we hold and the types of information you want to receive from us. Your information will not knowingly be passed to any third party for marketing purposes.

 

In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or submitting personal information. However, certain information is automatically collected, including the IP (internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to the Website and other related user information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on the Website. We use this information to help us understand the Website activity, and to monitor and improve the Website.

 

Exceptions

Other than provided by this privacy policy, we may be under a duty to disclose your personal data as part of our legal or regulatory obligations. We may need to disclose data to third parties in order to comply with those requirements or to prevent fraud or money laundering or to enforce any agreement we have with you. We will also be entitled to disclose confidential information to our insurers (for the purposes of our professional indemnity insurance and in the context of notifications under our policy), our auditors, and any other third party to the extent required by law or regulation, or where we consider it appropriate to ensure the successful implementation of your instructions. However, unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the personal information you provide to us without your consent.
