Who will we share your personal information with and why?

Derby Office Icon

Both in the course of providing legal services to our clients and as a necessary part of running our business, we will often need to share your personal information with third parties. The general position under data protection law is that we should only share your personal information with third parties if we have told you that we intend to do so and have a valid reason for doing so. We must also put safeguards in place to ensure that we share your personal information securely.

This section provides you with information about the third parties we will share your personal information with and our reasons for doing so.

In some cases, we only describe the category of third party with whom we will share your personal information. This is because:

  • when handling matters on behalf of clients, the identity of such third parties will vary from matter to matter; and

  • the identity of third parties we use to provide business related services to us (and who may have access to your personal information) will change from time to time.

If you would like more information about any of the third parties with whom we share your personal information or the steps we take to ensure that your personal information is secure, please contact us using the details set out here.
