The Firm of Rees Page Solicitors will be the “Data Controller” in respect of your information for the purposes of the applicable legislation.
Our use of that information is subject to the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation.
Please note that we may be required to give information to third parties.
We use the information that you provide to us via our website primarily for the provision of information relating to legal and estate agency services which we offer. Should we enter into a retainer with you we will provide you details of the data protection and privacy policies which will apply.
The legal basis upon which process your information will generally be to enable us to provide you with details of the legal and estate agency services which we offer and should we enter into a retainer with you to perform our contract with you.
Where we process the information for purposes other than as detailed the legal basis upon which we do so will either be that it is necessary for our legitimate interests (complying with our legal and regulatory obligations and pursuing the legitimate aims of the business) and/or your consent.
Where we rely upon consent we will obtain your express consent to the purpose in question. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. If you wish to exercise this right you should notify the person dealing with your matter, or if we are no longer acting for you at that time the Firm’s Data Protection Officer (see below) in writing.
You have a right of access under data protection legislation to the personal data that we hold about you. In addition, if the information is processed by automated means you have a right to require us to transfer to someone else or provide this to you in a commonly used machine readable format.
Subject the exceptions below, you have a right to request that we delete any personal information which we hold about you.
Please note that we reserve the right to retain information, even if you have asked us to delete this, where this is necessary for us to comply with a legal or regulatory requirement or for the purposes of us bringing or defending any actual or potential legal proceedings relating to your matter.
If you consider that the personal information that we hold about you is inaccurate, you have the right to request that we rectify it.
Unless you ask us to delete the information sooner, we will retain the information which we obtain for no longer than is necessary. We will delete the information when it is no longer necessary to retain it for the purposes of our legal and compliance obligations or to enable us to defend our interests in the event of a subsequent dispute.
In the meantime the information will be securely archived. At the end of that period the information will be destroyed confidentially unless you specifically instruct us otherwise in the meantime.
The Firm will not as a matter of ordinary practice transfer personal information outside of the UK. If we do need to do so (for example because another party to the relevant matter or contract is based in another country) we will obtain your specific permission to do so.
If you have any queries or are unhappy about the manner in which we are processing your personal information then you should contact the Firm’s Data Protection Officer – Richard Ennis, a Partner in the Firm who is based at the our office at 8-12 Waterloo Road, Wolverhampton, West Midlands WV1 4BL.
