Privacy Policy

The information we use, which includes personal data, is subject to data protection legislation, your instructions and our professional duties including confidentiality. We are the data controllers of any of your personal data which we collect or you provide to us by:

  • filling in forms on this site, if you report a problem with it, or if you contact us;
  • visiting our site, accessing pages and resources; and
  • responding to voluntary research surveys.

We will use this personal data to provide you with:

  • the most effective relevant content on our site;
  • updates on services which we believe will be of interest to you;
  • the interactive features of the site, when you choose to use these; and
  • notification about changes to the site content.

With your consent we will only use your personal data to provide you with updates on legal developments or details of our services that may be of interest to you, and to invite you to events and training sessions. If you attend an event or training session organised or hosted by us, we may disclose your details to others who attend or participate in the organisation of that event. If at any point you no longer consent to our contacting you for such purposes please tell us your consent is withdrawn by emailing us at bh@boodlehatfield.com.

We will only disclose such personal data: (a) to successors in title to our business, (b) to suppliers and external agencies we engage to process data on our behalf, (c) to third parties (such as our professional indemnity insurers, brokers, auditors and other professional advisors), and (d) where disclosure is required by law, or by any regulatory authority.

While, (unless otherwise agreed) we may not disclose to others that you are a client, once the details of a matter are in the public domain (unless as a result of an unauthorised disclosure by any party), we may disclose that we acted for you and the general nature of the work undertaken. Such disclosures will be made principally for pitches and promotional purposes.

You and all data subjects have data protection rights. These include in some cases to access, rectify, erase, or restrict the processing of the personal data subject to applicable exemptions such as any relating to judicial proceeding or the subject of legal professional privilege. If you have any comments requests or queries concerning personal data or this policy please contact us at bh@boodlehatfield.com.
