What is our ‘legal basis for processing’?
To be able to process your personal information, we must have a valid legal reason for doing so. The reason in our case is that we need your personal information to deliver any agreement (or ‘contract’) we have with you. This includes providing free legal advice, in the form of a written letter, to you following a request from you asking for assistance. It can also include providing a written response to your initial enquiry.
Do you have to provide your personal information and what are the consequences of not doing so?
You must provide us with your name and either an email or telephone contact and brief details of your enquiry to allow us to deliver the agreement (or ‘contract’) we have with you. These services include responding to your initial enquiry to tell you whether we can help you, providing free legal advice to you. If you do not, we will not be able to inform you about whether we can assist you with your enquiry or provide you with any legal advice.
You do not have to provide any other information if you do not wish to, but it would help us if you would complete all parts of our form.
If you do not wish to provide us with this information through our online form, you can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you prefer to speak to us, then you can telephone King’s Legal Clinic on 020 7848 1575.
If you telephone and we are not available to answer, you can leave a voicemail message with your details and we will return your call. You do not have to leave your details in a voicemail message but if you do, we will delete the message off our clinic telephone immediately after returning your call.
By providing us with your personal information, you agree to King’s Legal Clinic processing your personal information in accordance with the purposes as laid out in this privacy statement.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by notifying us by email (email@example.com) or writing to us at:
