Your data

We process personal data to communicate with potential clients. We need to process personal data to enter into our appointment with you, as our client, and for us to provide a professional service. We use your data to communicate with you during a project, to raise invoices for our services and for record keeping for those bids which were unsuccessful.

For us to provide you with a professional service and for an appointment to be confirmed it is necessary for certain data, such as your contact details, to be provided by you. If you are unable, or unwilling, to provide such information we may not be able to fulfil our appointment with you.

Your data (continued)

During the progress of a project we may need to share contact data, such as your address, telephone number and email address, with other consultants and specialists engaged for the project. If you do not wish for some or any of this information to be shared you must inform us.

We take the security of your data seriously and have internal policies to ensure, as it is reasonably practicable, that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed or disclosed to irrelevant third parties. Your data is stored on our server with password protected systems.

We keep your data for six years after the end of the contract (or for twelve years if the appointment between us is executed as a deed). We do not pass on your information to other organisations for any marketing.

Your rights

We can provide you with a copy of the data we hold about you by written request and by a payment of a fee of £10 (BACS transfer only). You will need to provide verification of your identity.

You can ask us to amend incorrect data, to delete some or all of the information we hold, as well as asking us not to use your data for our marketing, such as newsletters. You can ask us not to share your information with third parties, such as our employees.

If you wish to exercise any of the above rights please send an email to: or write to us at the office address.

You can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office if you think there may be a problem with the way we deal with your information.


This Privacy Notice may be updated or modified periodically and without prior notice to you to reflect changes in our personal information practices or relevant laws.

We will post a notice on our website to notify you of any significant changes to our Privacy Notice and indicate at the top of the notice when it was updated.
