 How do we use your information?

As solicitors we are under a professional and legal obligation to keep the affairs of clients confidential.  However, this obligation is subject to a statutory exception: legislation on money laundering and terrorist financing has placed solicitors under a legal duty, in certain circumstances, to disclose information to the Serious Organised Crime Agency.  Where a solicitor knows or suspects that a transaction on behalf of a client involves money laundering or terrorist financing, the solicitor may be required to make a disclosure.  If this happens, we may not be able to inform you that a disclosure has been made.

We will use your information in order to:

  •  provide our services to you
  •  process your payment details
  • if you are a client and unless you have told us not to, to provide marketing materials to you (including by e-mail)
  • if you are not a client and if you have told us we may, to provide marketing materials to you (including by e-mail)

Client’s personal and contact details will be stored both electronically and in a paper form by us.

 Who Do We Share Your Information with?

We will not share your information outside of Gotelee EXCEPT:

  • with the Serious Organised Crime Agency if we are required to make a money laundering or terrorist financing disclosure
  • with external auditors who are under an obligation of confidence
  • with external service providers such as photocopying, transcription or file costing services under an obligation of confidence
  • with our insurer
  • in circumstances where we are required or permitted to do so by law.  For example, where the public interest or your own interests override your rights.

 Who May We Transfer Your Information to?

We will not transfer your information to a new data controller EXCEPT where we wish to sell, transfer or otherwise assign the whole or any part of our business or in circumstances where we are required or permitted to do so by law.
