MKB Law Privacy Policy

MKB Law is committed to protecting the privacy of our clients and website visitors. We understand the importance you place on the privacy and security of information which personally identifies you, and we value our relationship with you.

Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular user, we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following in order to learn more about our privacy policy including the information we collect and how we use it.

This website is operated by MKB Law Ltd and we are a controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679. We are responsible for the processing of any personal information you provide to us when using our website.

This Privacy Policy (together with our General Terms and Conditions of Business and Terms of Use/Website Management Policy) outlines how we will collect and process your personal data.

Data Protection

Data we collect/provided by you & data processing:
We ask you for personal data only when it is needed to provide services you have enquired about, or asked us to provide, to respond to your requests for information, to download marketing materials, or to register for any of our events. You do not need to provide us with personal data to browse our site or other online channels.

If you use any forms on the website, such as the contact form, enquiry forms, or feedback form, a record will also be made of the details you choose to include such as your name, email address, phone number and the nature of your enquiry. You are not obliged to provide us with this information; however we may be unable to carry out your specific request if you do not. In addition to the above, we may collect and use the data to comply with legal obligations we might be subject to (such as anti-money laundering).

Data Consent:
We will not pass your personal information to anyone outside of the firm, without your prior consent, except where we are otherwise legally required to do so (for example to the Inland Revenue, Benefits Agency, any court of competent jurisdiction or any law enforcement agency with statutory authority).

Other than in the above situation we will let you know when your personal information might go to third parties, and you will have the opportunity to decide not to share that information. If we do engage third parties, we will take reasonable steps to ensure those entities comply with obligations under GDPR when they handle your personal information. We will only hold your data for as long as necessary unless otherwise required under applicable law.

Data Storage:
Your data will be stored on our secure server and in the cloud. If/when you formally instruct us, your data may also be stored on physical files in our office or in our offsite secure document storage facility.

Your Data Rights:
In accordance with current legislation, you have the right to request from us:
– if, when and how we process your data
– copies of any data we hold for you
– amendments to your data which are incorrect or incomplete
– full deletion of your personal data with immediate effect
Where we process your data on the basis of your consent, you are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time.

If and when you formally instruct us, you will also be asked to agree to receive marketing communications and client surveys. You have the right to opt out at any time and request that your data is no longer processed for marketing purposes.
