The information we collect about you and how we use it

  • Your name;
  • Contact information including postal address, email address and telephone numbers; and
  • Other information relevant to your enquiry/case

By submitting your details, you are requesting us to process your personal data to enable us to provide information or assistance to you and / or progress your case or matter and we will use and store your information for that purpose.

We may use your personal information to:

  • verify your identity to help us prevent fraud
  • respond to claims and defend or exercise our legal rights

  • Your name;
  • Contact information;
  • Basic health data such as diet requirements and / or mobility requirements should these be relevant to your attendance.

From time to time it will be necessary for us to share your personal information with third parties, including:

  • IT services including off-site printers
  • Archiving and storage facilities
  • Money laundering checking services
  • Banking / payment services

If you are a client of Goodenough Ring Solicitors, we may also need to share your personal information with additional third parties, such as other parties in your case, experts, the court, and legal counsel, for the purposes of providing you with legal services or to comply with our own legal obligations.

How long we keep your personal information

Our retention policy for securely retaining your personal data is six years from the conclusion of your enquiry or case. Taking account of applicable UK law, we consider six years to be an appropriate period.

Personal information relating to clients of Harrison Grant, whose matters concluded less than 6 years ago, will also be retained in accordance with this Goodenough Ring Solicitors policy. Goodenough Ring Solicitors has inherited the rights and responsibilities in relation to personal information relating to the now closed firm, Harrison Grant.

  • Request erasure of your personal data.
  • Object to processing of your personal data.
  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.
  • Request transfer of your personal data.
  • Withdraw consent.

Ordinarily, exercising these rights will not incur a fee unless the request is unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

In order to comply with your request, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
