I do not envisage that this data would be needed to carry out my duties as an Insolvency Practitioner. However, if it is required, it will only be processed if I have: –

  • Your explicit consent to do so
  • It was necessary in order to protect your vital interest and you were unable to give your consent
  • There is a substantial public interest to keep this data
  • There is another legal basis that would allow me to do so

Sharing your information

Your information may be shared with professionals who are acting on my behalf such as Solicitors, Barristers, Accountants, Expert Advisers, Banks, Estate Agents, Insurance Companies or any other third party who is instructed.  Only data which is relevant will be shared with such professionals and I regard this as Lawful Processing.  All third parties will keep your personal information confidential and only use it for specific purposes in accordance with my instructions.

I may also share personal data if I am under an obligation to do so.  Examples of such obligations would be to provide information to the Police, National Crime Agency, Serious Fraud Office or other regulators where reporting or processing activities are necessary.

If it is applicable, I may also share other personal data which you may have made public for purposes of communicating with you.  I regard such data as lawful processing as it is held publicly and is accessible by the public.  I will not use, share or transfer information that you will provide to me unless it is necessary to perform my duties.

How long do we hold your information?

Data will be retained for as long as any regulatory requirement requires me to do so.  This would typically be up to 6 years after the completion of an insolvency case.

How secure is your data?

Your data will be held electronically at a secure server located in the United Kingdom.  There are several layers of security in place and back up procedures including hardware firewalls to prevent unauthorised access, anti-virus software and password protection. When the data is no longer required to be kept for regulatory obligations the electronic data will be deleted permanently.  If data is held on paper format this is saved in a secure compound and is confidentially shredded when no longer necessary.

What are your rights?

You have the right to request for your personal data to be amended or rectified where it is inaccurate.  You also have the right to access the personal information I hold about you.  This includes the3 following: –

  • Right to be informed – on who will, how and why your data will be processed
