Under the Data Protection Act everyone responsible for using data has to follow strict rules called ‘data protection principles’. They must make sure the information is:
• used fairly and lawfully
• used for limited, specifically stated purposes
• used in a way that is adequate, relevant and not excessive
• kept for no longer than is absolutely necessary
• handled according to people’s data protection rights
• kept safe and secure
• not transferred outside the European Economic Area without adequate protection
Our advice is personal and confidential to our clients only. If you pass on that advice to a third party, or ask us to do so, that third party will have no enforceable rights against Doughtys W.S. (along with their Solicitors and staff) or other Agents (whether under the Terms of Business or otherwise).
We keep any information you give us confidential. We will not give this information to any other people or organisations unless you give us permission or we must do so by law.
If for marketing purposes we want to talk about the work we have done for you, we will ask your permission first. This information would apply to future marketing as well.
