PRIVACY NOTICE

Introduction

Please read the following information carefully.

This Privacy Notice contains information about what data I collect and store about you and why. It also tells you with whom I share this information, how to contact me if you have a complaint, and how I retain your information.

I am a “data controller” for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other applicable data protection laws. I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Your privacy

I am committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. When we conduct business together, I will collect personal information about you. I use that personal information in accordance with the law, particularly with regards to data protection and privacy law including the General Data Protection Regulation.

I take your security very seriously and I have security measures in place to ensure appropriate security for your personal data. Only authorised Nexus Chambers staff and third parties processing data on my behalf have access to your personal data, and then only to the data necessary for the purposes for which they have been given access.

 What information does Annette collect from you?

In the course of my business, which is the provision of legal services, I process personal data of many different types which may include:

*This is an example of a type of “special category” or a sensitive class of personal data.

How does Annette obtain my information?

The vast majority of the personal data that I collect is provided to me by or on behalf of my clients to provide legal services to them and/or to consider whether I am in a position to provide legal services to them.

Whose Personal Data does Annette Process?

I process personal data about my lay and professional clients, potential clients, and individuals who feature in the matters in respect of which I am asked to provide legal services (including but not limited to: witnesses and experts, legal professionals representing other parties, other barristers with whom I am working, court staff and members of the judiciary, and other ancillary to actual or potential proceedings).

Why does Annette need my information?

(These are the legal bases for Annette processing your personal information)

  1. Providing you with legal services including advice and representation services to you as my client;
  2. Dealing with complaints or concerns;
  3. Dealing with legal or regulatory action;
  4. For my accounting and banking purposes;
  5. For administration purposes;
  6. For carrying out billing and fee collection including those which are carried out on my behalf by Nexus Chambers staff;
  7. To assess and improve my services;
  8. Where you are not my client, in order to provide legal services, including advice and representation services to the client from whom or on whose behalf I have collected your data;
  9. For marketing purposes. I will not share information from which you can be identified unless you have consented to me doing so or unless it is already in the public domain.

Please note you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, but this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing activity that I have carried out prior to you withdrawing your consent. However, where I rely on other bases apart from consent for processing your information, you may not be able to prevent processing of your data. The withdrawal of your consent will also not affect the lawful retention of your information for the purposes of a potential complaint or appeal or for regulatory purposes.

Who has access to my information?

I do not sell or rent your information to third parties. I also comply with my professional duties including my duties to you which I take very seriously. Subject to my duties and to legal professional privilege, it may be necessary to share your personal data with:

  1. Other legal professionals including instructing solicitors, other barristers, legal representatives or experts with whom I am working, and opposing legal representatives;
  2. Nexus Chambers’s IT providers and staff;
  3. Experts and other witnesses;

  5. Other regulatory authorities, for instance in the event of a dispute or other legal matter;
  6. Judges and Court Staff;
  7. Where required certain third parties to meet my legal obligations, law enforcement officials, and government authorities;
  8. My accountant and my bank;

Please note that Annette does not use automated decision making in the processing of your personal data.

How long will my information be kept?

Annette will normally only store your information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is being used and in order to fulfil Annette’s legal and regulatory obligations. Generally this will be around seven years after the end of the case, or seven years after the date of the last payment or the date of writing off fees.

How do I make a complaint?

Annette is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Annette is also committed to providing you with the best possible service and hopes that you will be satisfied with the way in which he approaches and uses your personal data.

However, the General Data Protection Regulation also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners’ Officer if you are in the UK, or with the supervisory authority of the Member State where you work, normally live, or where the alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The Information Commissioner’s Officer can be contacted at http://ico.org.uk/concerns/.

In the first instance if you have a complaint about the way that I handle your personal data, I hope that you will contact me so that I have an opportunity to resolve it.

Changes to this privacy policy

I will occasionally change this Privacy Notice as I continually review my privacy practice.
