Privacy Policy of Herrington Carmichael LLP

How we use your information
This privacy notice tells you what to expect when Herrington Carmichael LLP (registered number: OC322293) (“us”/“we”) collect information about you or your actions whilst on our website, www.herrington-carmichael.com (the “Site”).

The terms of this privacy notice will apply to all information collected about:

  • visitors to our Site;
  • people who use our online services, such as those subscribing to our e-shots, newsletters or other periodical publications; and
  • visitors to our Site who complete an “enquiry form”.

Visiting Our Site and Using Your Data

When someone visits our Site we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. This information is collected anonymously and will not directly identify you.

Where analytical data is collected following your visit to our Site, the data will be used to:

  • ensure that content from our Site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
  • provide you with information or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.
  • allow you to participate in the interactive features on our Site, where applicable.
  • notify you about changes to our services.

In the event that we require you to provide personal data, such as when you complete our enquiry form(s), this information will only be used to contact you in relation to the services you have requested or such other services that, in view of the information you provide to us, we feel may be of benefit to you.

In any event, all handling or processing of any data, personal or anonymous, will be in strict compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”).

Complaints or Queries
We strive to meet the highest standards when collecting and using personal information. For this reason, we take any complaints we receive about this very seriously. We encourage people to bring it to our attention if they think that our collection or use of information is unfair, misleading or inappropriate. We would also welcome any suggestions for improving our procedures.

This privacy notice was drafted with brevity and clarity in mind. It does not provide exhaustive detail of all aspects of our collection and use of personal information. However, we are happy to provide any additional information or explanation needed. Any requests for this should be sent to the address below.

Disclosure of Personal Information
In almost all circumstances we will not disclose personal data without your consent. However, when a complaint is investigated, for example, it may be necessary to share personal information with the particular organisation or governing bodies concerned. Further information is available upon request about the factors we shall consider when deciding whether information should be disclosed.

Further examples of when disclosure may be required include:

  • where you have elected to utilise the interactive services and/or third party portals we offer through our Site, disclosure may be required in order to obtain the necessary licences and consents; or
  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use or terms and conditions of supply of services and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our customers, or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection.

Linking

Our Site may from time to time contain links to and from the websites of third party partner networks, advertisers and/or affiliates. If you follow a link to any of those websites, please note that those websites are obliged to have their own privacy policy and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for those policies or the content or compliance of their websites. Please check those policies before you submit any personal data to those websites and ensure you have read and understood their terms of use.

Access to information
The Act 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.
