We gather and use your personally identifiable information for (i) the performance of a contract that you enter in to with us (ii) for direct marketing purposes, and/or (iii) our legitimate interests and in compliance with your fundamental rights and freedoms.

We make reasonable efforts to protect personally identifiable information that you provide from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However concerning data provided via our online assets, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, the firm does not warrant or represent that its level of security meets or exceeds any particular standard, and no server or internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. You should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential data on any websites. Similarly, any information that you send us through the websites is not confidential or privileged.
We will endeavor not to keep your personally identifiable information in a form that allows you to be identified for any longer than is reasonably necessary for achieving the permitted purposes. This means that data will be destroyed or erased from our systems or anonymized when it has reached the applicable retention period. If you wish to see a full copy of our data retention policy you may request it from email@example.com.
Personally-identifiable information may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to other third parties as set out above, provided that certain conditions as set out in the applicable legislation are complied with. Your personally identifiable information will also be processed by personnel operating outside the EEA who work for us. This includes personnel engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your order and the provision of support services. In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or a merger with, another entity, we may transfer your personally identifiable information to the new party in control.
Depending on the circumstances and applicable law, you may have the right to:
- request access to any personally identifiable information we hold about you;
