We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out the basis on which any personal information we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. By visiting our website you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.
(1) What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
(a) technical information including information about your computer (including your IP address, your log in information, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, and website navigation);
(b) information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our site and methods used to browse away from the page;
(c) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our services (such as events and special reports);
(d) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us and subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters (including your name, company, position and e-mail address); and
(e) any other information that you choose to send to us.
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
(3) Using your personal information
We may use information held about you to:
(a) administer the website;
(b) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;
(c) enable your use of the services available on the website;
(d) send statements and invoices to you, and collect payments from you;
(e) send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications;
(f) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;
(g) send to you our newsletter and other marketing communications relating to our business or the businesses of carefully-selected third parties which we think may be of interest to you by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications);
(h) provide third parties with statistical information about our users – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user; and
(i) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website;
Where you submit personal information for publication on our website, we will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the license you grant to us.
We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
In addition, we may disclose your personal information:
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law; and
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings.
(5) Where we store your personal data
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
(6) Your rights
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by writing to us at Legal Futures Publishing Limited, Churchill Business Centre, Stirling Way, Borehamwood, Herts WD6 2HP or by email to email@example.com.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
