Collection of personal information
Your personal information is collected only when voluntarily submitted by you. This information may include your name, company name, e-mail address, street address or phone number. When you request information from our website, you specifically consent to our use of the information that you provide to us in accordance with this policy. We may use the information we collect to provide you with news and other information which you may have requested. Occasionally we may notify you about important changes to the site and new information or services which we think you may find valuable. This includes sending you information by e-mail. If you do not wish to receive this information or wish to opt-out of receiving e-mail from us, please send an e-mail.
If you do not wish to accept cookies through the website, you may adjust your browser settings to reject cookies or to accept cookies from certain “trusted” websites. Please note that if you change these settings, it may affect your ability to access certain portions of the site or make your browsing experience more difficult. Your continued use of our site reflects your consent to allow additional cookies to be placed on your computer to help you navigate the site.
Disclosure of the collected information to third parties
Vedder Price LLP may transfer information to our affiliate firm, Vedder Price P.C., which is located in the United States. U.S. laws may not provide you with the same protections as the laws of your country. Please be aware that by using our site, you acknowledge and consent to allowing your information to be transferred to our affiliate firm.
We may transfer information to a successor firm or company which acquires the legal practice carried on by Vedder Price LLP. If this happens, we will require the firm or company to which we transfer personal information to observe standards of data protection and privacy no less secure than those set out in this statement.
We may provide aggregate statistics about our users and traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third parties providing services on our behalf, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.
Except as noted above, personal information received from you will be retained by us and will not be sold, transferred or otherwise disclosed to any third party, unless such disclosure is required by law or other court order.
Although every member of the Vedder Price LLP team has a personal, private e-mail address, e-mail which you send to us or which we send to you may be monitored by Vedder Price LLP to ensure compliance with professional standards and our internal compliance policies. Monitoring is not continuous or routine, but it may be undertaken on the instruction of a partner where there are reasonable grounds for doing so. Occasional spot checks or audits may also be undertaken on the instruction or with the authority of a partner.
Access to personal information
In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, you are entitled to request a copy of the information we hold about you. We may charge a fee of £10 for complying with this request.
If you become aware that the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, you may request that we amend it. Any requests should be made in writing to us (see contact us for our contact details).
Third-party data processors
Our information technology systems are operated by Vedder Price LLP, but some data processing in relation to web and e-mail services is carried out with our authorization by a third party. We use industry standards to protect our website and endeavour to ensure that appropriate security measures are in place to prevent unauthorised disclosure of personal information.
