Stirk Law respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal data. This privacy notice explains how we use the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.
Stirk Law is the data controller and is responsible for your personal data (collectively referred to as we, us and our in this privacy notice).
What data do we collect?
We collect your personal data, which means any information about you from which you can be identified. This includes without limitation information such as:
- your name, date of birth, address, email address and phone number;
- payments from you to us and details of any services purchased from us;
- technical data including your IP address, location and information about how you use our website;
- your preferences in receiving marketing from us or our third parties and your communication preferences; and
- any other personal data which you provide to us.
How we collect your personal data
You directly provide us with most of the personal data we collect. We collect and process your data when you contact and communicate with us, give us information and use or view our website via your browser’s cookies. We may also receive information about you from analytics, advertising and search engine providers such as Google and other third parties.
How we use your personal data
We collect your personal data so that we can receive your instructions, provide you with legal advice and contact you about updates and services in which you might be interested. You can contact us at any time to opt out of any marketing communications from us. We also collect your personal data in order to conduct checks in accordance with anti-money laundering and terrorist financing legislation and comply with any other of our legal or regulatory obligations.
We may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). We will only transfer your personal data outside the EEA to a jurisdiction that provides an adequate level of protection for your personal data or by another method of transfer that complies with the Data Protection Act 2018.
We need your personal data in order to enter into or carry out the contract for services between us. If you do not provide any personal data that we need, we will not be able to provide our services to you and so will have to not enter into a contract with you or terminate any existing contract with you.
How we store your personal data
We securely store your personal data electronically under restricted and password protected access. We will keep your personal data for not less than six years. After six years, we will delete your personal data unless there is a good reason for continuing to process it in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
