8. Data we process
We provide a range of services to businesses and personal clients. We aim to process data, whether personal data or not, only to the extent necessary for us to provide our clients with our services and for other agreed purposes.
Therefore, we may often aggregate information in a general way and use it to provide class information. Certainly, if we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
If you are a personal client, personal data that we may process may include contact information, information about your business activities, information about your family members, and financial information such as that relating to your income, expenses, taxation and investments. In addition, some of our services may also require us to process information deemed to be “special category” information, such as your race or ethnic origin, information about your health and medical history, information about your sexual life and orientation, criminal records, and information about your political, religious or philosophical beliefs.
In most cases, your personal data will have been provided to us by you. However, with your consent, or if it is necessary in order to provide you with our services, we may have obtained your personal data from a third-party source.
We may process your personal data if you have a personal or business connection with any of our clients or suppliers. For example, you may be a family member, business partner, another adviser, supplier or transaction counterparty.
In addition, the data we process may include contact information, information about business activities, information about partners, directors, employees, information relating to employment remuneration and payroll, and financial information such as that relating to income, expenses, taxation and investments.
Moreover, we may be given your personal data by our clients or suppliers, or by third parties acting on the instructions of a client or a supplier.
If you supply our business with goods or services, including subcontracted services that we supply to our clients, then we may process your personal information. However, we do so only to the extent necessary to contract with you.
Similarly, your personal data will have been provided to us by you in most cases. However, sometimes we use third parties such as credit rating agencies to make decisions regarding our relationship.
To clarify, the law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information and notify you of the basis for each category.
However, if the basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
On the other hand, if the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
We may process personal information when a contract has been formed with our business and processing is necessary to carry out our obligations under that contract, or when processing personal data is necessary in order to form a contract.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
Only when you have given us explicit permission to do so, do we process your personal information under the basis of consent.
For example, you might have agreed that we may pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.
We may process information on the basis that there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
Likewise, where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal or tax authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.
Likewise, we record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our business.
Moreover, we keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high-quality service.
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us.
Therefore, we use that information to resolve your complaint.
If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. However, we do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.
Likewise, if the complaint relates to information on our website and we feel it is justified or if we believe the law requires us to do so, we shall remove the information while we investigate.
Above all, if we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.
Most importantly, we may compile statistics from information relating to complaints to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
If you visit our office you will be required to sign in at reception. We keep a record of your visit in order to maintain the security of our premises, your safety and the safety of other visitors.

We may use a customer relationship management (CRM) system to process personal data.
Data subjects include existing, former and prospective clients and their agents and representatives.

Above all, we do not sell or share any personal data with third parties unless we have explicit consent to do so from the data subject.
If you send us information in connection with a job application, we may keep it for up to three years in case we decide to contact you at a later date.
If we employ you, we collect information about you and your work from time to time throughout the period of your employment. To clarify, this information will be used only for purposes directly relevant to your employment. However, after your employment has ended, we will keep your file for six years before destroying or deleting it.
