At Wayman & Long, your privacy is very important to us. We will always treat your personal information with respect. We will constantly try to meet the highest standards when collecting and using personal information.
Our website contains a ‘Contact us’ form. Data submitted in this form – namely your name, email address, mobile number and message – is sent to us directly via email, and kept in a secure database to be used ONLY if emails fail to send. We use this data to contact the individual concerned, discuss their marketing-related query and offer Wayman & Long’s services. We don’t share this data with any other organisations.
This privacy notice does not cover links from our website to other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy notices on any other websites you visit.
When you call the Wayman & Long team, we only log your personal information or add your name to our database if you ask us to do so or instruct us to work on your behalf. When you email the Wayman & Long team, we monitor content, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. None of this information will be shared with any other organisations.
Wayman & Long offers a wide range of legal services, family law to commercial dispute resolution. To deliver our services, we hold contact and account data on our clients. This data is collated, stored and managed by our data controller Philip Povey, and selected data is only shared with Wayman & Long employees as services demand.
We believe we have a legitimate business need to store and process your personal information for some marketing purposes, whether you’re a client (on the basis that we can continue our professional relationship) or a prospective client (on the basis that we provide useful marketing newsletters of a non-sales nature). As such, we’re operating under ‘legitimate interests’ lawful ground for processing, as defined by GDPR, but you always have a choice. Clear opt out mechanisms are provided at all times.
In the UK, our data protection supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Read the ICO’s clarification on legitimate interests processing here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/lawful-basis-for-processing/legitimate-interests.
Under GDPR, you have certain rights as an individual which you can exercise in relation to the personal information we hold on you. These include the right to rectification and right to object, both of which we’ve already mentioned in the sections above.
There are other rights too such as the right of access, right to data portability and more. Read the ICO’s clarification on individual rights here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights.
Should you wish to make a complaint about the way we process your personal information, you can contact the ICO here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns.
