When you join an online or voice call, you may choose to provide us with your personal information (name, email address, phone number).

The purposes and legal basis for processing your personal data

The basis upon which we process your personal data and consequences to you of not providing it depend upon the type of personal data involved, our relationship with you, and the purpose for which the data is needed.


To the extent that we have a contract with you (or one is in prospect), the primary legal basis for processing your personal data is that the processing is necessary for the performance of our contract with you, or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract.


In addition, processing of your personal data may be necessary for compliance with our legal obligations or processing may be necessary in pursuit of our legitimate interests:

  • in complying with our legal obligations;
  • access and obtain a copy of your data on request;
  • in seeking confidential legal advice when necessary and/or establish or defend legal claims;
  • in supporting the wellbeing of our current staff and partners and promoting a supportive work environment;
  • in developing new systems or undertaking training and know-how sharing internally with stakeholders; and
  • in providing events or know-how of interest to registered contacts

It may be necessary for us to process some sensitive personal data in order to comply with legal obligations, or if we need to do so in order to seek confidential legal advice or establish or defend legal claims.


Otherwise, we will only process your sensitive personal data with your explicit consent.

If you voluntarily disclose your sensitive personal data during a meeting or call, we shall treat that as your explicit consent for us to hold that data, which otherwise shall only be processed in accordance with this policy.


Where such data is processed by us on the basis of your explicit consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time: this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing based on your consent before you withdrew it.


Who will see or use your data and who might we share it with?

Any personal data collected via recordings will be seen by relevant Paradine staff for the purposes as described above and, depending on the purpose of the recording, it may be necessary for us to share it in full or in part with others, for example, other professional advisers, auditors, counterparties, witnesses, courts and tribunals in order to fulfil our legal obligations or where you ask us to share that data.


From time to time we may invite you to events or meetings that we run jointly with other stakeholders which may be recorded. If you register for such an event then we may share the recording with that stakeholder.


Paradine agents or service providers

We may from time to time use our agents or service providers to assist us in these activities. In these cases, relevant personal data would be provided to and processed by the provider of such services, in accordance with the terms of our contract with them and to the extent appropriate for the performance of that contract.


You will be able to access information on how these service providers may use your personal data when you join the meeting or call or on your request from us.


We do not otherwise share your personal data captured during events, meetings or calls for other marketing purposes.


Transfer of your data to other countries

Where data is being transferred outside of the European Economic Area, we will take steps to ensure that your data is adequately protected in accordance with UK legal requirements.


Where we are in a contractual relationship with the recipient, such protection will normally consist at a minimum of appropriate contractual protections agreed between us and the recipient.


How long will we keep your data obtained via events, meetings or calls?

We will keep your data collected during meetings or calls in accordance with our data retention policy. This will vary depending on the purpose for which the meeting or call was recorded.
