In light of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which come into force on 25 May 2018, we are required to obtain consent confirming that you are happy for us to hold your personal data for the duration of your case and then for that information to be stored for a period of six years thereafter.
Your details will not be given to any party outside of your defence team without your written consent to do so. If you do not give your written consent for third parties to have knowledge of your matter, we will not give any information to others. This includes Court dates, Court locations and times and contact information (including prison numbers).
You have the right to access your information. If you wish to access the file of a past matter of yours, we respectfully ask that you give us 48 hours notice so that we can locate the file in our archiving. We would then require you to come into our offices with Identification and sign to say that you are removing the file.
We will need to ensure that the information we have is correct for you. We would ask that you inform us if you move house or change your contact number so that we can ensure that all correspondence reaches the correct person. This will ensure that you are aware of everything that is happening in relation to your matter.
