Data collection from our website and how we use it
Registration of interest – When you register your interest in joining any of our claims/receiving further updates, you will be asked to provide certain personal information, such as your name and email address. We will only use this information to contact you regarding your claim and will not use it for any other purpose other than to fulfil legal or regulatory obligations if necessary.
Identity check for registration – If you choose to join one of our claims, as part of the engagement process one of our third party providers will use the details which you provide to us to carry out a search with a Credit Reference Agency for the purposes of verifying your identity to comply with regulatory requirements. To do so the Credit Reference Agency may check the details you supply against any particulars on any database (public or otherwise) to which they have access. A record of the search will be retained by the Credit Reference Agency. This check will show as an ‘identity search’ on your credit file – this is not the same as a credit check and has no negative impact on your credit file. If you have any questions regarding the electronic verification process, please email us at [email protected]
How we will hold your data
The information you provide will be held securely by Charles Lyndon and/or other appointed data processors using appropriate security systems to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your information from unauthorised access and disclosure.
All information you provide to us via the registration page will be processed in accordance with the Data Protection Regulations and as set out in this Privacy Notice.
Although we do our best to ensure the security of your personal data and to use only reputable service providers, unfortunately no information system can be 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. In particular, we will not be responsible for the security of any information which you transmit to us over networks that we do not control including the internet and wireless networks. We have 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.
