LEGAL STATEMENT

TERMS OF USE

This website is operated by Enable Law, part of the Foot Anstey Group. This page tells you the terms of use (“Terms”) of our website, www.enablelaw.com (our “Site”). By accessing our Site you confirm that you have read and accept these Terms and that you agree to abide by them. If you do not agree to these Terms, please refrain from using our Site.

EMAIL DISCLAIMER

Our emails are confidential and may be subject to legal professional privilege. Unauthorised use of any communication received or its contents is prohibited.
If you receive an email in error, please notify us immediately by email and delete any copies. We may intercept emails for the purpose of detecting unauthorised use of our email system. You are reminded that email communications are not secure. Our emails are checked for viruses but you should perform virus checks on any attachments.

We accept no responsibility or liability for malicious or fraudulent emails purportedly coming from us and it is your responsibility to ensure that any emails received are genuine before relying on anything contained within them. Where the content of an email is personal or otherwise unconnected with the firm’s or its clients’ business, Enable Law accepts no responsibility or liability for such content.

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.

Our Privacy Policy found here, which sets out the terms on which we process any personal data we collect from you or that you provide to us. By using our Site, you consent to such processing and you warrant that all data provided by you is accurate.

Our Cookie Policy found here, which sets out information about the cookies on our site.

DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT

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.
