RE: Ogden, Lyles & Fox, General Data Protection Regulation
As you are probably aware from the media within this country the above piece of legislation became law on the 25th May 2018.
This letter/email is a privacy notice and describes how Ogden, Lyles & Fox as your Solicitors collects and uses personal information about you in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We will comply with data protection laws. This says that the personal information we hold about you must be:-
Personal data or personal information means any information about any individual from which that person can be identified. It does include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
There are “special categories” of more sensitive personal information which require a higher level of protection, such as information about a person’s health or sexual orientation.
We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:-
We may also use your personal information or following situation, which are likely to be rare:-
How long will we use your information for?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:-
If you want to review verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact ourselves. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights).
We may need you to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transferring of your personal information for a specific person, you have the right to withdraw your consent from that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent please contact ourselves. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time and we will provide you with a new privacy notice when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.
