As data controller we take all necessary steps to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its relevant subordinate legislation when handling any personal information.
- When you supply any personal information to us we will meet our legal obligations to you in the way that we deal with that information.
- We will comply with the Principles set out in the GDPR and we will ensure all personal information supplied to us is held securely.
- We will ensure that any information collected will be used only for the purpose for which it was given and will be held only as long as is necessary to ensure our services run smoothly.
- We use up to date industry procedures to keep personal data as safe and secure as possible against loss, unauthorised disclosure or access (see paragraph 5 below).
- You have a right to access personal information we hold about you. Should you wish to obtain a copy of the personal data we hold on you please email email@example.com
Please contact us at the same email address if you have any reason to believe the data we hold on you is inaccurate. You may also request in the same way if you wish any data we hold about you to be deleted.
- To whom will we supply your personal data?
Data about traffic and usage of the site together with information collected about online behaviour using cookies may be shared with third parties but only in aggregated anonymous form.
We do not disclose personally identifying information except in very specific instances.
We do not sell, trade, provide or rent your information to other parties unless we have first obtained your consent. If you do give us permission we will only share information with organisations we have carefully selected and believe to be reputable. (see paragraph 3.2).
Where an individual provides personal information (such as name, e-mail address and other contact information) to us via the website for whatever purpose (e.g. registration, survey, feedback etc.) your personal information will only be used for the purpose of communicating with you in relation to the matter raised or for any other purpose for which you have given your consent.
Specific personal information may be released where we are required to do so e.g. court order or for any of our statutory purposes.
2.1 Will you use my personal information for direct marketing? Can I prevent this?
Personal data obtained from optional surveys or contests may be used by us for the purpose of making users aware of services or promotions which we think you may be interested in. Such information may also be disclosed to carefully selected third parties for direct marketing but we will only do so if we have obtained your consent to this use at the point of collection of your personal data. Any such consent that you give may be withdrawn by you at any time by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and typing ‘Remove’ in the subject line.
In addition, any time we send you a direct marketing communication it will include a process for removing yourself from the mailing list.
2.2 Is my personal information sent abroad?
Countries in the European Economic Area are required to have a similar standard of protection of personal data. This is not always the case outside that area. Personal information obtained by us may be processed on behalf of Christian Gottfried Solicitors by data processors outside the European Economic Area. In addition, where disclosures are made to third parties those third parties may be located or process the personal information outside the European Economic Area. Before doing so, we would take all reasonable steps to ensure that there is adequate protection.

We have put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the safety and security of the information we collect on line. Any third party processing such information on our behalf is contractually obliged to put in place similar measures. However, you should consider any communication that you transmit to us (such as data, questions, answers, comments or suggestions) as non-confidential. Christian Gottfried & Co will not be liable if information that belongs to you is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient.
