What will you do with my data?

3 Min Read

Whilst the information you provide us is confidential we must observe the requirements of the Data Protection Act 2018. We will therefore process personal data you provide us such as names and addresses and sensitive data, such as information about your injury (or details of the person you represent) in order to carry out your instructions.  When receiving a new enquiry this information will be stored on our internal systems based in the UK so that our expert solicitors can use it to work out whether we can help you and discuss your claim further with you. This will be stored for a period of 12 months but longer if you become a client of Enable Law.

Enable Law, which is part of the Foot Anstey Group, is the data controller of all of the information that we hold about you. If you instruct us we will share some of your information such as your name, address and matter description with Foot Anstey LLP. This is to comply with our legal and regulatory requirements and in order to protect our clients and businesses from conflicts of interest. For example, one reason for this is to ensure that we do not act in matters where Foot Anstey LLP  are already instructed in an adverse position and equally to ensure that Foot Anstey LLP does not accept instructions to act against clients of Enable Law.

You should also be aware that in the normal course of business we may use third party suppliers to ensure that we are able to comply with our obligations when providing our services to you. This may include sharing personal data that we hold with these third parties.  Limited generic and statistical information (anonymised wherever possible) will be shared between Foot Anstey LLP and Enable Law for quality and client improvement purposes.  More details will be provided to you in our terms of business if you instruct Enable Law in due course.

In order to help ensure that we keep the affairs of our clients confidential, emails leaving our systems are routinely monitored by specialist software which is designed to protect against the risk of misaddressed emails. This involves the transfer of relevant email metadata (including recipient email address, subject heading and salutation) to the software provider’s secure datacentre and this information does not leave the EU. This data will only be used for this, and not for any other, purpose.
