How Strax Capital Legal handles personal information

 

Strax Capital Legal takes the privacy of your information very seriously. Our Privacy Policy below explains how we will collect and use the information you give us via our site: www.straxcapital.com   (the “Site”) and otherwise when you are using our services, for instance when you complete any paper or Site forms or otherwise, or provide data to us by telephone.

We are committed to good information handling principles and the privacy and confidentiality of any personal information we deal with.

When we interact with you, we might give you supplementary privacy notices which are more specific to the personal data we’re collecting or using at that point. You should read those notices alongside this Privacy Policy.

In this Privacy Policy, the word “we” and “Strax” refers to the Strax Capital Legal, Strax Capital and its controlled affiliates. Unless otherwise stated, we are the data controller of any personal data collected via the Site, in any forms, via the telephone, email or otherwise. Our contact details are included in the contact us section below.

The terms “you” and “your” mean any visitors and users of this Site and individuals who otherwise interact with us in connection with our services.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We are continually improving our methods of communication and adding new functionality and features to this Site and to our services. Because of these on-going changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, our data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, we will notify you of the changes via this page where the current version of the Privacy Policy will be published. Where appropriate, we will notify you of changes usually by email, but occasionally in another more appropriate format such as letter. We encourage you to check this page frequently also.

This policy is effective from the 25th May 2018.

What is personal information?

When we use the term “Personal information”, we mean the same as “personal data”. Personal data is defined in data privacy laws applicable in your country. It includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This means any individual who can be identified directly or indirectly by reference to an identifier such as name, identification number, location data, online identifiers (for example, IP addresses – if they can be used to identify you) or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.  Put simply, this includes data which either by itself or with other data held by us or available to us, can be used to identify you. 

The categories of personal information we collect

Personal information collected from you in connection with our services includes the following:

  • Your full name, date of birth, postal address, e-mail address, telephone numbers, job titles, next of kin, National Insurance number, bank account details, financial details.

  • Historic information – Bank account and credit card details, legal documents, financial details.

 

Personal information also includes special or sensitive categories of personal data, including medical or disability information which we may collect in connection with your case.

If you communicate with us by email over the internet you should be aware that the nature of the internet may not be secure and may pass through several different countries on route to us if you live overseas. We comply with data privacy laws in relation to security, but cannot accept responsibility for unauthorised access to your information that is outside our control. Further information regarding our approach to the security of personal information is included in the section below on Security of personal information.

Third party’s personal information

If you give us personal information about another person, in doing so you confirm that they have given you their prior permission to provide it to us and for us to be able to process their personal data (including any sensitive personal data).  

You must also ensure this and other relevant privacy policies are brought to their attention so they can review how their personal information may be used.
