About our Privacy Policy

We respect your right to privacy and take our responsibilities in relation to the processing of personal data seriously.

We do not collect or process personal data unnecessarily. This privacy policy (the “Policy”) sets out important information about your rights in relation to the processing of your personal data, and the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed in connection with your use of the Watsons Solicitors website (the “Site”).

We will collect and process the following data about you for the following purposes:

Information you give us

Your Data. As a result of visiting our site and where you are not otherwise a client with whom we have entered into a Contract to supply legal services.

The information required on our contact form on the Site is:

Identity Data: your full name and e-mail address.

You may also provide us with your address, phone number, age, and personal description in the email box.

What we use your data for

To respond to your queries and to provide you with the information you request from us in relation to our products or services.

To set up and administer your account for the services.

To provide the services and perform our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.

To manage our relationship with you, including notifying you about changes to the services, our terms of services or privacy policy.

To provide you with information about services we offer that are similar to those that you have already enquired about.

How long we keep your information

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. This means that the period of time for which we store your personal data may depend on the type of data we hold.

Disclosure of your information

We do not sell your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.

Accessing your Personal Data

You may request access at any time to a copy of the personal data we hold about you. Any such request should be submitted to us in writing and sent to our data protection officer, Latham Parry, who may be emailed at latham.parry@watsonssolicitors.com.

We will need to verify your identity in such circumstances and may request more information or clarifications from you if needed to help us locate and provide you with the personal data requested. There is usually no charge applied to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, we may charge a reasonable fee. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

If you have reason to believe any of the information we collect on you may be inaccurate or incomplete you may request to have your personal information updated and corrected.  To do so at any time, please contact us in writing or by e-mail to Latham Parry at latham.parry@watsonssolicitors.com.

You have the right to require us to erase your information without undue delay if one of the following applies:-

  1. The information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we collected it;
  2. You object to us using your information; for the purposes of our legitimate interest in marketing to you or for fraud prevention and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing;
  3. The information must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.

This right to erasure applies unless it is necessary to use your information to comply with a legal obligation or to establish, exercise or defend any legal claim.

Restriction in processing

You have the right to require us to restrict our use of your personal information when one of the following applies:-

  1. You contest the accuracy of the information that we hold about you, while we verify its accuracy;
  2. We have used your information unlawfully, but you request us to restrict its use instead of erasing it;
  3. We no longer need the information for the purpose which we collected it, but you need it to deal with a legal claim; or
  4. You have objected to us using your information, while we verify whether our legitimate grounds override your right to object.

Changes to this policy

Any changes made to this Policy from time to time will be published at the Site.

Any material or other change to the data processing operations described in this Policy which is relevant to or impacts on you or your personal data will be notified to you by email. In this way, you will have an opportunity to consider the nature and impact of the change and exercise your rights under the GDPR in relation to that change.
