Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP Privacy Policy Statement

 

Your Data

We, at Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP, are committed to ensuring your privacy is protected securely. This Privacy Policy explains how we use the information we collect about you, how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information, and procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

We promise to:

  • Always hold your details safely and securely
  • Only get in touch with you in the ways that you wish
  • Only use your preferred communication preferences
  • Not to share your personal data with any Third Parties unless we have freely given consent and it is required for your Case

Consent

Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP will always ask for your consent prior to contacting you for certain purposes. For example, we will only contact you to enquire if you would like to update your Will, if we have an accurate record and your freely given consent for us to contact you in such way.

If you change your mind about your consent given to us, you can withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting our Norwich office on 01603 767671, our Great Yarmouth office on 01493 856997 or by emailing administration@gordondeansolicitors.co.uk.

Legitimate Interest

We, at Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP, will always aim to be clear to you about the information we collect. This is so it enables you to make the right choice about how your information is used.

We will only contact you when it is necessary to do so, for example, in respect of payments due.

Data Sharing and Changes to Your Data

We, at Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP, will not share your data with any third parties, unless required to do so for the continuity of your case, if you have freely given consent for us to do so.

On occasions, we may contact you to check the information you have provided us with, to ensure it is up to date and accurate. If you decide to change your preferences of how to be contacted, you can do so by calling either of our offices or by emailing administration@gordondeansolicitors.co.uk.

We may share your data with another law firm if an event arises such as a business closure or combining of law firms. If such should happen, your details will be passed over to the new business owner, subject to terms of confidentiality.

Vital Interest

In life threatening circumstances, such as a medical emergency or an accident, we may share your personal details with the emergency services. We will only do this if it is essential for the preservation of life (yours or someone else’s life) for us to give out that personal information.

This is called the ‘vital interest’ ground for us giving out your personal information. Once the medical emergency / accident has passed, we will try and let you know how we used your personal information in relation to the medical emergency / accident. We would only use the personal information which would be in accordance with this Policy.

Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP will not sell your personal information to any other organisation.

Your control over the usage of your Personal Data

You have full control of everything in respect of your personal data used by Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP.

You can choose to see what information we hold on you. This is known as the “Right to Access,” and to do this, you can contact administration@gordondeansolciitors.co.uk. We will comply to your request within 30-days of the request, as explained in the General Data Protection Regulation.

You can choose for us not to use your personal data at any time by emailing administration@gordondeansolicitors.co.uk. This is known as the ‘Right to be Forgotten,” and there may be certain circumstances where we are unable to comply with this request. For example if you owe Gordon Dean Solicitors LLP money.
