To understand how your own personal information is processed, you may need to refer to any personal communications you have received or contact us to ask about your personal circumstances.

With whom do we share your personal information?

We will share your personal information with third parties (such as the police and other law enforcement agencies) where we are under a duty to do so in order to comply with any legal, professional or ethical obligation (such as to comply with our anti-money laundering obligations), or in order to enforce or protect any of our rights, property or safety (or those of our members, employees or clients). In providing our services, we may give information and data to third parties such as expert witnesses, courts or tribunals, and other professional advisers. We may also share your personal information with third parties who provide services to us. When we do so, they are required to act in accordance with our instructions and keep your personal information secure. If we sell or buy any business or assets, we may disclose personal information held by us to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. If substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party (or are subject to a reorganization), personal information held by us will be one of the transferred assets.

Lawful Bases of Processing

We will only collect and process personal information about you where we have lawful bases. Lawful bases of processing are as  following:
  • Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: Under some legislations we may be allowed to process Personal Information until the User objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Information is subject to European data protection law;
  • provision of Information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the User and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof;
  • processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
  • processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
  • processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
In any case, we will gladly help to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

Third party websites

From time to time we may include links on our Site that will enable you to access the websites of third parties directly from our Site. Each third party operates its own policy regarding the processing of personal information and the use of cookies on its website and you are advised to read the privacy policy and cookies policy on the relevant website. We do not accept any liability or responsibility for that third party’s use of your data or their use of cookies.

Data Retention

Personal Information shall be processed and stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for. Therefore:
  • Personal Information collected for purposes related to the performance of a contract between us and the User shall be retained until such contract has been fully performed.
  • Personal Information collected for the purposes of our legitimate interests shall be retained as long as needed to fulfill such purposes. Users may find specific information regarding the legitimate interests pursued by us within the relevant sections of this document or by contacting us.
We may be allowed to retain Personal Information for a longer period whenever the User has given consent to such processing, as long as such consent is not withdrawn. Furthermore, we may be obliged to retain Personal Information for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority. Once the retention period expires, Personal Information shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after expiration of the retention period.

Opting Out

We may from time to time send you legal updates and mailings relating to our seminars or events that we think may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to receive marketing mailings from us, you may unsubscribe from these marketing mailings by following the unsubscribe instructions in any such message or contact us.
