Governing Law

The GDPR: Article 6.1(b) (the Regulation) provides the legal basis for processing client information and data where a client engagement and relationship exist.  The Regulation provides that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, and Article 6.1. (f), it is in the legitimate interests of the data controller or a third party.

Where no formal engagement and client relationship exists, the Regulation provides that the legal basis for processing such personal information and data is consented to via our website or vis formal consent at a marketing event.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Social Media

Any social media posts or comments you send to us (on our Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn) will be shared under the terms of the relevant social media platform on which they are written and could be made public.  Please be advised that other people, not us, are in control of these platforms.  We are not therefore responsible for this kind of sharing.  As such, we would recommend that you review the terms and conditions and privacy policies of all social media platforms that you use.
