Privacy

This explains our policy regarding the personal data you may provide to us when downloading a publication, signing up to our briefings, booking onto an event, making an enquiry or signing up to one of our services.

Information you provide is collected and stored securely by Elderflower Solutions Limited (Reg Company No. 8851214) (t/a ‘Elderflower Legal’) of Chestnut House, 23 Ryles Park Road, Macclesfield, Cheshire SK11 8AH, UK.  Tel 01625 260577 e info@elderflowerlegal.co.uk. We are registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Ref No. ZA056126).

What information we collect

The information we collect depends on whether you have downloaded a publication, made an inquiry or signed up for our events and services. Typically, we will collect your name, address, organisation, date of birth, family details, email address, phone number, IP address and social media profiles. The information may also include details of visits to our website. We may verify or supplement this information with data publicly available from other sources.

How information about you will be used

We collect this information to enable us to fulfil our contract with you, to contact you following an enquiry you have made, to keep you informed of legal and regulatory developments which are likely to be of interest, to provide better-tailored services to our clients, to maintain our accounts and records, and to comply with our statutory obligations to prevent money laundering and fraud. We will usually keep this information during the time of your involvement with our services and usually for a period of 6 years afterwards. For online briefings, we will keep this information until you unsubscribe, which you can do at any time.

If you book onto an event, we may share your basic details with the venue operator and any partner organisations involved in the event, including any dietary preferences or special access needs. We may make the delegate list available to other event participants to allow participants to understand each other’s background and experience and enhance the networking value of the event.

Information may also be shared with our technology suppliers in order to provide services to you. Whilst generally we do not transfer data outside the EEA, we may use cloud-based software vendors based in the US. These suppliers have signed up to the Privacy Principles of the US Dept of Commerce’s Privacy Shield scheme.

We would like to send you information about our services and events from time to time by post, by telephone, email, SMS text and social media direct messaging to ensure you get the best from our services and to keep you informed of relevant developments in law and policy.

We and our partners will hold all information in confidence and comply with all responsibilities under applicable Data Protection laws. We will not sell, rent or assign your personal data to any other external organisation or individual. By proceeding with your request or booking you agree to these terms. You have a right to withdraw your consent at any time and can update your preferences at any time by emailing info@elderflowerlegal.co.uk.

If you would like further information or wish to make a complaint, please email or write to us at the address above. Alternatively, you can find out more about your rights or complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office at ico.org.uk.
