This Privacy Notice (‘the Notice’) provides information about how we collect, store and use data from our clients and the persons and organisations we deal with when providing services and administering our business.
For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 2018 (‘DPA 2018’) and the General Data Protection Regulations (‘GDPR’), the Data Controller in respect of any data controlled by the firm is Fullers Family Law Limited, a limited company under the laws of England and Wales, registered under number 8069084.

Your Personal Data
‘Personal Data’ means any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified by data held by us. The DPA and GDPR regulate our use of your personal data. We may obtain personal data from you on a contractual basis when you provide information via our website, when you contact us by telephone, visit our offices or when you correspond with us; or we may obtain personal data from other legal professionals or other parties in the course of our business. We will not collect personal data from you that we do not need other than to provide our services to you.
Access to your personal data may be given to employees, contractors or agents of Fullers solely for the purpose of performing their duties or contractual responsibilities to you and not in a way which is incompatible with the purpose for which we obtained the data. In providing clients with legal services, it may be necessary for us to share your personal data with other people and organisations. In addition, we may share your data to protect your or our legal rights, or because we are required to by law or by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. This may involve the transfer to a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) where a party, or an asset, subject to proceedings is located outside the EEA.
Data is stored for a period of one year in respect of those who make an enquiry but do not instruct Fullers and for a period of 7 years for those clients who do instruct Fullers after which time it will be destroyed.
