Collection and use of data
ASB LAW can obtain personal data from you (including your name, postal address, telephone number, email address and payment details) from a number of different sources:
- When you supply us with your details when discussing matters over the telephone, or if you submit a request for details to be provided to you by mail or email, or via the website, or provide us with your business card or contact details (in any other form) for communicating with you.
- Via your individual IP location. This is a function of the Website that enables ASB LAW to assess session information relating to the use of the Website, such as the duration of the visit and the type of browser used. Such information is only used for ASB LAW to evaluate use of the Website, as well as for ASB LAW to diagnose problems with its server and to administer the Website.
- Through ‘Cookies’ (which is a piece of data stored on a user’s hard drive containing information about the user) to track the interests of our users so that we can subsequently enhance their experience on this Website, once relevant consents are obtained when accessing the Website. The Cookie will be deactivated when you close your browser. You may still use the Website if your browser rejects a Cookie.
ASB LAW needs your name, address, telephone number and/or email address so that we can contact you and send out information to you that it thinks may be of interest to you. ASB LAW also requires this information about you in order to provide you with our services and deal with your instructions to us.
ASB LAW may use the information you provide to us for marketing and administration. ASB LAW may show the information to such of ASB LAW’s staff and affiliates as need to see it.
ASB LAW also requires your payment details, contained either in a cheque drawn from your account, or your credit or debit card details, to facilitate the collection of authorised payments, and/or process any refunds due to you, and/or to repay any residual balances to you.
Transfer of personal data
In order to carry out work for you, ASB LAW may need to collect information about you to pass to third parties (e.g. barristers, the Court Service, other service providers) for the purposes of supplying services to you. This may involve the transfer of information outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and by providing ASB LAW with this information you provide your consent to transfer such information out of the EEA. The information collected may include your name and any other relevant information required for performance of the services.
You have the right to ask ASB LAW not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You also have the right to access information held about you by ASB LAW. Your right to access can be exercised in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (“DPA”), as amended from time to time, and any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet ASB LAW’s costs in providing you with details on the personal data we hold about you.
ASB LAW may email or send by post details about services or bulletins which ASB LAW believes may be of interest to you, unless you inform ASB LAW otherwise. You may at any time unsubscribe to receiving information about ASB LAW by sending an email to email@example.com.
