Privacy Policy

Internet Privacy Policy
Please take a few minutes to read this privacy policy - it will help you to understand how we use any personal information you may supply through this website. The policy is broken down into easy-to-read sections as follows:

General information
Whenever you give us personal data via this website, you are consenting to its collection or use in accordance with this privacy policy.

The registered data controller is Lovewell Blake, Chartered Accountants. The Data Protection partner Shaun Mary may be contacted by telephone, 01603 663300 or by email, privacy@lovewell-blake.co.uk, if you have any queries relating to this policy.

What personal data does Lovewell Blake collect?
We collect only personally identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors to the Lovewell Blake website.

Since visitors are able to send email through our site, you should be aware that your email message may contain your user name and email address, as well as any additional information you wish to include in the body of the message or as an attachment (for example, this may include name, title, postal address, email address, telephone and fax numbers).

Because we use the website as a recruiting tool, a visit to the website may also result in the user sending a curriculum vitae to an individual within Lovewell Blake.

We do not seek any sensitive information through our website unless legally required for recruiting purposes. (Sensitive information includes a number of types of data relating to: race or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or other similar beliefs; trade union membership; physical or mental health; sexual life or criminal record.) We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, Lovewell Blake accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this privacy statement or as described at the point where you choose to disclose this information.

We make every practical effort to avoid excessive or irrelevant collection of data. However, if you believe the website has collected excessive information, we encourage you to contact us at privacy@lovewell-blake.co.uk to raise any concerns.

Visitors are able to browse the site without disclosing any personal information - but note our statement on the use of Cookies.

How will Lovewell Blake use personal data?
We use your personal data to provide goods and services to you or your organisation, or to let you know about other goods, services or events which we think may interest you.

Information obtained from visitors to our site is used only for the intended purpose stated at the time that the information is collected. This data is not shared with a third party, unless otherwise disclosed at the point of collection. If there is an instance where such information may be shared, the visitor will be asked for permission beforehand.
You can request us to stop sending you marketing information at any time by contacting r.sibley@lovewell-blake.co.uk

The use of Cookies
Cookies may be used on some pages of our site. (Cookies are small text files sent from a webserver to your browser and stored on your hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites).

We use cookies to assist us in providing a more customised website experience and for the purposes of system administration - for example, to provide information about the number of visitors to different parts of our website - they are not used to identify visitors. If, however, you are concerned about them, most browsers now recognise when a cookie is offered and permit you to refuse or accept them. In most cases, a visitor may refuse a cookie and still navigate our website.

Disclosure of data to third parties
It is our policy to only disclose information to third parties under the following circumstances:
  • as required by law
  • when explicitly requested to do so by a visitor
  • when required to carry out our business

We do not use our website to collect or compile personal data for distribution or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing purposes, or host mailings on behalf of third parties.

Third party links within our website
For your convenience, we have provided links to other websites, within the main Lovewell Blake website, which you may find useful. You should be aware, however, that when you link to other websites, our privacy practices no longer apply. With this in mind, we encourage visitors to review each sites privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.

How long is Data Held?
Information about visitors to our site is kept as long as the information is required to complete the contact request or until a user requests that we delete that information, or as required by law.
For example:
Mailing list information and emails are kept for only the period of time considered reasonable to facilitate the visitor's requests.

CVs are disposed of when they are either no longer under consideration, or are considered dated by our Human Resources departments.

If you wish us to delete your information, please contact privacy@lovewell-blake.co.uk

When personal data is retained, we assume responsibility for keeping an accurate record of the information once a visitor has supplied the data. We do not, however, assume responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of the content of personal information. When practically possible, if we are informed that any personal data collected through a website is no longer accurate, we will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided by the authenticated visitor.

Access to data
Each visitor has the right of access to personal data they have submitted through our website.

Enquiries about the accuracy of personal data previously submitted to Lovewell Blake through its website, or requests to have outdated information removed, should be directed to: privacy@lovewell-blake.co.uk

We are committed to providing reasonable and practical access to visitors to allow them the opportunity to identify and correct any inaccuracies. If you become aware of any errors or inaccuracies please let us know by contacting privacy@lovewell-blake.co.uk
When requested and practical, Lovewell Blake will delete identifying information from the appropriate systems (computerised and/or manual systems).

Lovewell Blake has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. However, no data transmission over the internet (or any other network) can be guaranteed as 100% secure.

Thank you for reading our privacy policy.
We suggest that each time you visit our website, you should re-read this page, since we may amend our privacy policy without giving you notice.
