How will the data be used by Levy & Partners ?

All data collected, including personal data, may be used:

  • in the performance of our professional services;
  • to offer advice as to other professional services we might provide;
  • to contact visitors and clients about the professional services we provide;
  • to receive information requests sent by Levy & Partners customers and website visitors;
  • to obtain comments on the services we provide;
  • to provide more effective internet services, improve the quality of our website, and make the website more responsive to the needs of our visitors;
  • for recruitment purposes.

Will my data be shared with anybody else?

In order to effectively provide our professional services, sometimes Levy & Partners engages in activities with business partners and sponsors.  Our policy is not to share personal data with them without client consent.  Following consent, personal information may be jointly collected and shared.

Other than for the reasons above Levy & Partners will not share your personal information without your knowledge and consent unless required by law to do so.

Can I make sure my data is being kept up to date?

At Levy & Partners we are fully aware that personal information can change and so we aim to keep any information we do hold up to date.  If you wish to inform us of any such changes please contact us using the contact information provided on our website.

Do I have any rights as to how my personal data is being used?

Yes.  You can write in and ask for a copy of any of your personal data that Levy & Partners holds though you may be charged a reasonable fee to cover the costs of making this available.  A summary of the other rights you have in relation to the collection and processing of data, including a right to complain, can be found at www.ico.gov.uk .

Will my data be kept secure?

Levy & Partners maintains appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of any personally identifiable information collected through the website and the course of business, and periodically reviews and updates its security measures in the light of current technologies.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.  Although Levy & Partners strives to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you may transmit to us or from our online products and services.  This is done so at your own risk.  Once we do receive your transmission, however, we will make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Please remember that any information posted on bulletin boards becomes public information.  You should use caution when sharing information as any of it can be collected and used by people you may not know.  While Levy & Partners strives to protect and respect your privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose in a chat room or bulletin board and you do so at your own risk.

Is Levy & Partners responsible for any data collected from linked websites?

Levy & Partners has established relationships with reputable business partners that allow visitors to our website to link directly to sites operated by these partners.  Some of these sites may be “co-branded” with a Levy & Partners logo; however, these sites are not operated or maintained by Levy & Partners and Levy & Partners is not responsible for their content or how any information is collected and processed.  It is therefore recommended that you review the privacy policy of the businesses that maintain these sites.  These sites may collect personal information from you that is then shared with Levy & Partners .  The content of this policy will apply to information obtained in this manner.

Links to the websites operated by other third parties may also be provided for your convenience.  Again, Levy & Partners cannot be responsible for the content of these sites or how data is collected or processed and it is recommended that you review the privacy policy of the applicable third party website.

Data retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is collected.

When assessing what retention period is appropriate for your personal data, we take into consideration:

  • the requirements of our business and the services provided;
  • any statutory or legal obligations;
  • the purposes for which we originally collected the personal data;
  • the lawful grounds on which we based our processing;
  • the types of personal data we have collected;
  • the amount and categories of your personal data; and
  • whether the purpose of the processing could reasonably be fulfilled by other means.

Change of purpose

Where we need to use your personal data for another reason, other than for the purpose for which we collected it, we will only use your personal data where that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

Should it be necessary to use your personal data for a new purpose, we will notify you and communicate the legal basis which allows us to do so before starting any new processing.

Transferring personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA)

We will not transfer the personal data we collect about you outside of the EEA other than India (from time to time) outside of the EEA in order to perform our contract with you. Any personal data transferred outside of the EEA will be in order for us to perform our services to you and for no other reason whatsoever.

We have reviewed the non EEA third party data protection statements to ensure that your personal data is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the Data Protection Legislation.

Data Security

We have put in place commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please notify us of any changes of which we need to be made aware by contacting us, using the contact details below.

Your rights in connection with personal data

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data. This enables you to receive details of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully.
  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you.
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this basis. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or another data controller if the processing is based on consent, carried out by automated means and this is technically feasible.

If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please email our data protection point of contact info@levyandpartners.com 

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

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Right to withdraw consent

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data for a specific purpose (for example, in relation to direct marketing that you have indicated you would like to receive from us), you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please email our data protection point of contact info@levyandpartners.com 

Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your personal information (personal data) for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

Contact us

If you have any questions regarding this notice or if you would like to speak to us about the manner in which we process your personal data, please email info@levyandpartners.com
