What data we hold
If you contact us, we will hold the following information about you:
Your name, identity and contact information,
Information about your business activities, if you provide it,
Information and documents about your enquiries, including communications with you.
We also generate log files from various servers: this will include an IP address assigned to you or, more likely, to someone who provides you with Internet access.
Using your information
Giving you legal advice
If you get in touch looking for legal advice, we will do some research to understand more about you and what you do. Usually, this means reading up on your products or services, how you position yourself in the market, what you display on your public facing websites and social media presence, and so on. This helps us work out how best we can help you, and if we’re really the right people for the job.
The law (Proceeds of Crimes Act) requires that, in some situations, we must know who you are before we can give you legal advice. We may collect and store your identification data.
The level of checking we need to undertake depends on the potential risk, and there are certain factors which are considered to be high risk.
Any personal data received from you for this purpose will be processed only for the purposes of preventing money laundering or terrorist financing, unless we have your consent to process it for another purpose.
We retain identity verification information for as long as you are our client and for a commercially reasonable time period thereafter.
Dealing with enquiries
If you contact us via our contact page, call us, or make contact by email, we will follow up on your enquiry and see if there is a way in which we can help you. We keep a record of enquiries received, to help us plan our business strategy and check that we are offering what potential clients want.
We use the logs from our servers to assist in our firm’s security, as well as to determine visitor behaviour and help us plan our strategy (e.g. such as working out which pages on the site are most popular, or whether particular events have caused an increase in traffic).
Your data and Third Party Jurisdictions
We do not transfer or process data outside Jamaica unless the nature of the processing requires it (for example, where we are emailing a party outside Jamaica about your matter after we received your instructions to do so).
