Privacy

SA Law believes in the responsible use of personal information collected from this website.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the data which we collect about you lawfully in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Collecting your information

It is unlikely that you will be required to provide us with your personal information when visiting our website. However, you may choose to provide us with your personal information on some pages of our website, such as on completing an enquiry form or expressing an interest in a seminar. By submitting your personal information, you consent to our use of the information as set out in this policy.

Using your information

We shall use any personal information you give us in accordance with this policy and in the privacy statements that appear on the forms through which you submit your personal information.

If you give us your personal information, we may from time to time contact you by mail, telephone, or email to provide information that may be of interest to you, including details about the services we offer, newsletters, legal updates and invitations to events. We may disclose your information to our agents and service providers for these purposes. We shall give you an opportunity to choose not to receive marketing information before you submit your personal information.

We may also use details of your visits to our site including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, relating to the resources that you access.

If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please tick the relevant box situated on the form on which we collect your data or contact us on 01727 798000 or by email.

Access to Information

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.

If you apply for a staff position, we will use the information provided to match your skills and experience with available opportunities.

Confidentiality

We will keep your personal information confidential except to the extent that we are compelled to disclose it by law (for example where fraud or other crime is involved) or to comply with an instruction of a regulatory body of competent jurisdiction (such as the Law Society). From time to time we may be called upon to demonstrate our maintenance of certain professional standards as set by appropriate authorities and/or to satisfy our auditors and/or to comply with regulations in relation to money laundering or other statutory requirements. If you do not consent to our production of your details for this purpose only as an exception to our duty of confidentiality, you can let us know by checking the appropriate box on any registration form or by contacting us on 01727 798000 or by email.

Protection of your Personal Data

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Your Rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us on 01727 798000 or by email.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
