    3. What information do we collect?

    We collect different information depending on how you use our site and how you interact with us. ‘Personal data’ means any data which can be associated with you as an individual, either directly or indirectly.

    The personal data we collect via this site may include:
    • Identity information, such as your name, title, date of birth, gender, and organisation name and position.
    • Contact data, such as your address and email and telephone details.
    • Technical data, such as your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website.
    • Usage data includes information about how you use our website, products and services, and any communications we may receive from you.
    • Marketing and communications data, including your preferences in receiving marketing and other communications from us.

    We do not usually collect ‘special categories’ of personal data through our website. (‘Special categories’ of data include details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, health information, or criminal convictions and offences.) If we do collect any special categories of data, our reason for doing so will be made clear to you, and we will seek your explicit consent to this.

    If you prefer not to provide any personal data whilst using this site (for example, if you adjust your web browser settings to refuse cookies), the functionality of the site should not be affected.

    4. How we collect information

    Different data is collected in different ways.

    1. Personal data you provide to us You may provide us with your identity and contact information; marketing and communications preferences; and usage data when you:
      • Subscribe to our newsletters and updates;
      • Contact us in respect of our services, or to provide feedback on our site.
    2. Careers and job applications
    3. If you apply for any of our listed vacancies you may have to share the personal details. The form asks you to enter information including your identity, contact details, education, employment history and similar matters. This allows our recruitment personnel to make an informed decision as to whether to proceed with your application. Where the information provided is sensitive (such as your racial background or your state of health), you will need to expressly consent to our use of the information to assess your application and to allow us to carry out equal opportunities monitoring.

      To apply for any position with the firm, you may supply us with your email address. This will trigger an email from us to you inviting you to send your curriculum vitae. Any information you send us for the purpose of a job application will be treated by us with the greatest care and for that purpose only.

    4. Personal data we collect automatically

    As you interact with our site, we may also collect technical data including your browser type, the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet, and your browsing habits, patterns and preferences.

    5. How and why we use information

    We will only use your information where:

    1. We need it to perform a contract or provide a service you have asked for For example, if you have requested some other services (including our accounting services), we will need your contact and identity data to be able to provide that service to you. Likewise, we may need your contact, identity, technical and/or usage information to respond to a question you have asked us.
    2. We have a legitimate interest (reasonable business purpose) for doing so.

    We will use your information for our legitimate business reasons where our doing so will not unduly affect your rights. We use your identity, contact and usage information to:

    • keep our records up to date
    • respond to and analyse the feedback and comments we receive via our site
    • create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you in the most appropriate way and with the most relevant information
    • develop our marketing strategy by seeing which people are the most interested in our services

    We use your technical information to:

    • Provide and make improvements to our website
    • Ensure that our site is secure
    • Study how visitors interact with our site
    • Tailor our website to your viewing preferences
    • Address any issues you may experience with our site. (for troubleshooting purposes, this may include personal details you have entered into one of our online forms, even if you do not “send” or “submit” the form.)

We may use any or all of the information above to administer and manage our business in general, and in the context of a business reorganisation or group restructuring exercise.

    6. Data Security

    The security of your personal information is important to us. We seek to use reasonable physical (e.g. key card office entry, locking doors), technical (e.g. password protection, network firewalls, laptop encryption, authentication mechanisms), and administrative safeguards (e.g. confidentiality agreements, training, procedures that limit access to and use of data) to protect the information we process. However, no method of transferring data over the Internet or storing electronic data is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use reasonable and appropriate means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security.

    If we become aware of a data breach and think that it may pose a high risk your rights, we will notify you without undue delay.

    7. How long we keep your data

    We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

    We will retain your personal data in line with our records retention schedule unless a valid business reason exists which means we need to retain personal data for longer. You can request a copy of our retention schedule by contacting us.

    8. Changes to this policy or your data

    We may amend or modify this privacy notice from time to time. We will post any revised notice on this site, or a similar site that replaces this site. If you have consented to receiving our updates (or you are a current or former client), we will notify you of any changes.

    It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
