The personal data I collect


Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).


I may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which I have grouped together as follows:


  • Identity Data includes first name, maiden name, last name, title or similar identifier.

  • Contact Data includes email address and telephone numbers.


I do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do I collect any information about criminal convictions and offences via this website.



Methods of Data Collection

I only collect personal data from you which you supply directly to me or via my website.


Data Processing

I will only process the data you provide to me to fulfil the agreement we have entered into, i.e. the provision of legal services or online training.  Thereafter, I will only process your data if I have a legitimate interest in doing so.



My website uses essential cookies for various purposes, as set out in the table below.


You will be presented with a cookie banner when you first visit the website, which allows you to choose your settings to reflect your cookie choices.  My website will only use cookies if you agree to me doing so. Cookies will only be retained for as long as necessary and as set out below. All users remain anonymous. 


It also uses Google Analytics, which helps us to maintain and develop the website to enhance the user experience and to monitor which pages are most popular. Again, this is all done anonymously.

Direct Marketing


I will not use your personal data to directly market to you at all. 



Transferring Data


I do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area



How long will you use my personal data for?


I will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes I collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.


If you become a client, I will retain your data for a period of 6 years for tax and accounting reasons. Otherwise, I will only retain your data for a period of 12 months.

  • Request transfer of your personal data

  • Right to withdraw consent



Subject Access Requests


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, I may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, I may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.


I may require additional information from you to identify the data you wish to receive.


I respond to all legitimate requests within one month from the date of receipt. However, it may take me longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests, in which case, I will notify you and keep you updated.




You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues ( However, I would like to try and resolve any complaint before you engage the ICO, so please speak to me first and hopefully I can fully address any concerns you may have.
