Who we are
This blog is published and maintained by members of Temple Garden Chambers’ AEV LAW team. We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors. This Notice explains how we will treat your personal information.
Information that we collect
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, and website navigation);
(b) information that you provide to us by completing the public access contact form on our website.
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website to aid navigation and to record any user options. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Using your personal information
Personal information submitted to us via this website will be used only for the purposes specified in this privacy notice or in relevant parts of the website.
We may use your personal information to:
(a) administer the website;
(b) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;
(c) enable your use of the services available on the website;
(d) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website.
We will never provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
We will only disclose your personal information:
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
(d) to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
Security of your personal information
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
However, because data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You may require us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to:
(a) the payment of a fee (currently fixed at £10.00); and
(b) the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).
We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.
You have the right to lodge a complaint to the Information Commissioner about the processing of your data. Details of how to make such a complaint are here.
Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
International data transfers
Information which you provide may be transferred to countries which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area. By using this website, you expressly agree to such transfers of personal information.
We may update this privacy notice from time-to-time by posting a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
Third Party Websites
Our website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites.
The data controller responsible in respect of the information collected on this website is Emma Northey of Temple Garden Chambers’ AEV Law Team.
