Third Party Personal Data You Provide

Through your use of the Services we may also collect information from you about someone else. If you provide Accounts and Legal with personal information about someone else, you must ensure that you are authorized to disclose that information to Accounts and Legal and that, without Accounts and Legal taking any further steps required by applicable data protection or privacy laws, Accounts and Legal may collect, use and disclose such information for the purposes described in this Policy.

You must therefore take reasonable steps to ensure the individual concerned is aware of and consents to the various matters detailed in this Policy, including the fact that their personal information is being collected, the purposes for which that information is being collected, the intended recipients of that information, the individual's right to obtain (and details of how to) access the information.

Where requested to do so, you must assist Accounts and Legal with any requests by the individual to access or update the personal information you have collected from them and provided to Accounts and Legal in connection with the Services.

It is possible that your details or information collected may be processed overseas where we think this may be of benefit to you.

 

Keeping your data secure

Transmitting information over the internet is generally not completely secure, and we can’t guarantee the security of your data.

Any data you transmit is at your own risk.

We have procedures and security features in place to try and keep your data secure once we receive it.

We won’t share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, and we don’t pass on your details to other websites.

Disclosure of your information

In order to carry out the Services of this engagement and for related purposes such as updating and enhancing our client records, analysis for management purposes and statutory returns, legal and regulatory compliance and crime prevention we may obtain, process, use and disclose personal data about you.

We also have a duty under section 330 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 to report to the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) if we know, or have reasonable cause to suspect, that you or anyone connected with your business are or have been involved in money laundering. Failure on our part to make a report where we have knowledge, or reasonable grounds for suspicion, would constitute a criminal offence.

To the extent that we are duty bound by any applicable legal or regulatory requirement to cooperate with any competent legal or governmental authority or agency we shall do so in accordance with applicable law. Without limitation, we expressly reserve the right to cooperate with any competent authority, in the investigation of alleged unlawful activities of our website users or relating to our website users. We will have no legal liability for such disclosures of your information.

We may share the information we hold about you with any person, business or other organisation (and their advisers) who might take over our rights or responsibilities under our agreement with you to allow them to prepare for taking these over (after that, we may also allow that person or business to use and share your information on the same basis as us).
