Personal data we collect
We collect and process the following personal data from you:
Information about other people
If you provide information to us about any person other than yourself, your employees, counterparties, your advisers or your suppliers, you must ensure that they understand how their information will be used, and that they have given their permission for you to disclose it to us and for you to allow us, and our outsourced service providers, to use it.
How do we collect your personal data?
The circumstances in which we can collect personal data about you include:
If you fail to provide personal data
Where we need to collect personal data by law or in order to process your instructions or perform a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to carry out your instructions or perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may have to cancel our engagement or contract you have with us, but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
How will we use your personal data?
We use your personal data only for the following purposes:
Please note that we will only provide you with marketing related information when we have a previous contractual relationship or a business relationship with you and provided you do not opt-out to receive those communications. You have the opportunity to opt-out at any time as explained in the “Right to withdraw consent” section of this Notice.
We will not use your personal data for taking any automated decisions affecting or creating profiles other than as described above.
Disclosure of your personal data
We share your personal data, in the following circumstances:
Information we transfer
When we transfer your information to other countries, we will use, share and safeguard that information as described in this Notice. To provide legal and other services, we may transfer the personal information we collect to countries outside of the EEA which do not provide the same level of data protection as the country in which you reside and are not recognised by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection. We only transfer personal information to these countries when it is necessary for the services we provide you, or it is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or subject to safeguards that assure the protection of your personal information, such as European Commission approved standard contractual clauses.
All OneLaw Chambers offices throughout the world ensure a level of data protection at least as protective as that required in the European Economic Area.

Security of your personal data
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Updating personal data about you
If any of the personal data that you have provided to us changes, for example if you change your email address or if you wish to cancel any request you have made of us, or if you become aware we have any inaccurate personal data about you, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com or use our contact form. We will not be responsible for any losses arising from any inaccurate, inauthentic, deficient or incomplete personal data that you provide to us.
