Data Protection and UK GDPR

Data Protection and UK GDPR

From 1 January 2021 revised data protection provisions come into place in the UK. Changes are made to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU 2016/679) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) by the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, Statutory Instrument 2019/419. The key principles, entitlements and obligations established under the GDPR (EU 2016/679) remain, but with changes. As the UK will no longer be part of the European Union from 1 January 2021 the GDPR (EU 2016/679) is amended and changes into the ‘United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation’ (UK GDPR). These revisions provide the principles which we are required to follow regarding your personal data or information, how it is used, its management and access, including correcting inaccurate or incomplete information and automated decisions, profiling, deletion and disclosure. Using the GDPR, we have introduced a revised process for data or information management. We have also produced this separate data consent and information form.

The provisions and information contained here relate to data held subject to English and Welsh legislation. If you feel we are not handling your data or information appropriately, please tell us. Alternatively, you can raise your concerns with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) on 0303 123 1113 or ico.org.uk.

How Craybeck Law LLP aims to hold and manage personal data

We hold your personal data on the basis you have consented for us to hold it.

Please be aware you may change your mind at any time and withdraw your consent regarding us holding your data. 

Craybeck Law LLP holds personal data in order to provide legal advice, assistance and information to our clients. We retain the data provided to us in paper or electronic formats. Where data is stored electronically, we aim to hold this indefinitely unless our clients notify us they do not want us to do so.

You are free to contact us, either using the provided form below or by other suitable means such as written correspondence or email to contact@craybecklaw.co.uk. You can advise us if you want us to continue storing you data, want to gain access to the data we hold or to have data amended or removed.

If Craybeck Law LLP is approached by a third party seeking information we will notify you we have received a request to disclose data or information. We will then seek your instructions, where appropriate, as how best to proceed.

Craybeck Law LLP recognises that we should respond to data requests within 28 days.

As with most legal practices, Craybeck Law LLP aims to store paper copies of data and information relating to our clients for a maximum period of up to 6 years.

If Craybeck Law LLP becomes aware that there has been an online attempt to gain access to electronic data. We will seek to remedy this by contacting our internet service provider or web designer seeking advice to remedy breaches and online access. 

If Craybeck Law LLP becomes aware that there has been a data breach and data has been shared for whatever reasons with a third party. We will notify, as soon as is reasonably practicable, the person to whom the data relates regarding this event. We will also instigate an investigation into how this event arose. If necessary, we will notify the ICO of this event. 

We endeavour to provide a satisfactory service to our clients. If we fall short of this, we will encourage our clients to contact us to discuss this further. Alternatively, clients are entitled if they so wish to contact the ICO or seek a judicial remedy.
