Data processing through this website

I do not wish to collect personal data through this website. However, I have provided a contact form, to enable organisations to contact me about obtaining legal support, or for making enquiries about my availability for speaking engagements. In theory, it is possible to treat some business email addresses as ‘personal data’.  In this case, I am the controller of such personal data.

The contact form is not to be used by individuals to send unsolicited information about their personal data protection, privacy or security problems, because I will not be able help.

Mailing list

I also allow people and organisations to join my mailing list, which I will use to send legal updates and other promotional news about my business activities.  This requires subscribers to enter their email addresses.  If you sign-up to the mailing list, you can unsubscribe at any time, by following the instructions on the email that you will receive after confirming your subscription. Please keep that email safe, because it contains an ‘unsubscribe here’ button.  I will treat purely personal email addresses (i.e., ones not sent from a business email address) as personal data.  I am the controller of such personal data.  Please note that I use the Mail Chimp mailing list service to run my mailing list. Please read their Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, which you will agree by joining my mailing list.

Cookies

This website also uses cookies. See the cookies policy page for further information, including links to information about how to control cookies and about how to disable them. Basically, use of this website constitutes consent for the setting of cookies. I use Google Analytics, which sets performance cookies. I also use the Word Press blog, which sets cookies, mainly for people with administration rights (guest bloggers, etc).

Purpose of data processing

Any personal data received through the contact form that concerns a request for legal support will be used solely for the purpose of deciding whether to accept a person or organisation as a client and for keeping a record of any transactions. If you decide to use the contact form to send unsolicited personal data about your personal problems, I will read your message to determine whether it is relevant to my business and I will delete it straightaway, if it is not relevant.  Most messages received from individuals about their personal problems will be treated this way.

Any personal data received through the contact form that concerns an enquiry about a speaking engagement will be used solely for the purposes of promoting my business.  The same applies for email addresses received through the mailing list subscription function.

Data sharing

I will only share your information with PwC Legal LLP and PwC LLP where that is necessary for the purposes of supplying services, or to confirm my ability to take part in a speaking engagement. I will not share your information with any other third parties, unless I am required to do so by law.

Notification

The very limited data processing operations performed through this website fall within the exemptions from notification contained in The Data Protection (Notification and Notification Fees) Regulations 2000.  Therefore, I do not need to register as a data controller with the Information Commissioner.
