Farooq Bajwa & Co is committed to preserving the privacy of all visitors to this website (www.farooqbajwa.com). By using this Website and submitting your information to us you agree to us using your personal information as described below.

Information we collect from you
We do not automatically collect personal information from you through our Website. However, like all websites our servers automatically collect certain information about the volume and characteristics of our Website traffic, the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your internet service provider. We cannot identify you from this information.

We will only collect personal information about you through our Website if you choose to provide this to us, for example by completing forms on various sections of our Website or by emailing us directly. If you subscribe to our newsletter service we may ask for certain information including your name, address, e-mail address and business details.

We may also collect information from written correspondence with you and telephone communications with you. We may supplement the information that you provide to us over our Website with this information.

How we use this information
Your information will enable us to provide you with any services you have requested or any enquiry submitted. We will also use and analyse the information we collect to administer, support, improve and develop the services we offer and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments. We may also contact you from time to time for your views on our services.

Where you have consented, we may use your information to send you mailings or information which you have requested or which we feel may interest you and/or are relevant to you or your business. Such mailings may include details of seminars, legal updates, newsletters, briefing notes and invitations to events. If you change your mind about being contacted for any of these purposes in the future, please let us know using the contact details at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Disclosure of your information
We may disclose your personal information to employees and third parties who act for us for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, for the purpose of providing you with services now or in the future and for other purposes approved by you. Those parties may process information or provide support services on our behalf, for example where our software is maintained.

We will not otherwise disclose any of the information you provide to us without your consent unless we are required to do so to comply with applicable laws and lawful government and/or regulatory requests, to operate our systems properly or to protect our Website users and ourselves.

Security, storage and data retention
The information you provide to us will be added to our database and will be held on our computers and/or in hard copy form. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.

We employ security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing and damage. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose via this Website.

Countries outside the European Economic Area do not always have strong data protection laws. However, we will always take steps to ensure a data protection level equal to this Privacy Policy.

Accessing and updating
To help us keep our database up-to-date, we would be grateful if you would let us know as soon as any of your contact details change.

For a fee of £10, you have the right to apply for a copy of the information we hold about you. If you wish to do this, please contact us using the contact details on the Contact Us page of this website.
