Full privacy statement of Pinsent Masons LLP
Pinsent Masons LLP and its affiliated entities and its business partners and service companies may use your personal information together with other information for providing legal services, credit checks, money laundering, marketing, administration, and training and we may disclose information to our service providers and agents for these purposes
To help us make credit decisions about clients, to prevent fraud, to check the identity of new clients and to prevent money laundering, we may, where necessary and appropriate, search the files of credit reference agencies who will record any credit searches on your file. That information may be used by other credit grantors for making credit decisions about you and the people with whom you are financially associated, for prevention of fraud and money laundering, and occasionally for tracing debtors. Information used for these purposes will include publicly available information such as electoral roll, County Court judgments, bankruptcy orders or repossessions.
For the protection of all our clients, we operate a money laundering reporting procedure. We may, in certain circumstances, disclose information to the appropriate authorities in relation to any suspicion of money laundering. Note that the checks outlined in this paragraph normally apply only where the client is instructing us in an individual capacity, as a partner in a business, or where the individual concerned is a senior officer in a company.
For marketing purposes, we may share your information with our business partners, in the legal or training sectors, for marketing purposes, or we may send you information about these other organisations' goods and services. We or our business partners may contact you by mail, telephone, fax, e-mail or other electronic messaging services with offers of goods and services or information that may be of interest to you about legal services, materials, news or training. By providing us with your fax number, telephone numbers or email address, you consent to being contacted by these methods for these purposes. If you do not wish to receive such information from us or our business partners, please contact email@example.com any time. No further action is necessary if you have previously indicated to us that you do not want to receive such marketing material.
In some cases, we need to process sensitive personal data, such as special dietary requirements for reasons of health or religion, for the above purposes. If you are our client, your continuing relationship with us demonstrates your consent to this processing. Sometimes we may need to transfer your personal information to countries which do not provide the same level of data protection as the UK. If we do have a need to make such a transfer then we will put a contract in place to ensure that your information is adequately protected and your privacy respected.
When you give us information about another individual for business purposes, you do so on the basis that the other individual has agreed, and has consented to the processing of his or her personal data, including sensitive personal data, to the transfer of his or her information abroad and to your receiving on his or her behalf any data protection notices.
To make sure that we follow your instructions correctly and to improve our service through training of our staff, we may monitor any communication between you and us. You are entitled to ask for a copy of your information (for which we may charge a small fee) and to correct any inaccuracies.
If your personal details change, if you change your mind about any of your marketing preferences or if you have any queries about how we use your information, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. This data protection notice may change and therefore you should review it regularly. We will of course notify you of any changes where we are required to do so.
