General

We take your privacy seriously at EquaLex. Our privacy policy is based on EU data protection principles.

In the following sections we explain how we collect and process information about visitors to our website, subscribers to 'Insights' (our on-line newsletter service) as well as our clients.

Please note that we use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites you visit. Cookies help make this website work and provide information to us about how users interact with our site. We use this information to improve our website.

If you wish to remove cookies from your computer, you can do so via the settings on your browser, but please note that this may impact your ability to utilise this and other websites.

To learn more about the cookies we use and how you can disable them, please view our Cookie Notice.

How we collect information

In addition to the use of cookies on our website, we invite you in various places to submit your contact details to receive our Insights and, in order to get a call from us, to provide additional information about yourself and your organisation.

How we use this information

In each case, the purpose for which you are invited to give us information is clear. We will not use your information for purposes that are not clear at the point that you provide your details.

The information you provide will not be disclosed outside EquaLex, except to service providers acting on our behalf (and who also comply with EU data protection principles) or with your agreement, or where we are legally obliged to do so.

The data from the cookies we collect enable us to improve your experience of our website and identify the areas that are of particular interest to visitors. The information that we collect in this process will not identify you as an individual. We do not seek to identify individual visitors unless they volunteer their contact details through one of the forms on our site. In some circumstances our records will identify organisations visiting our site and we may use that information in managing our relationship with those organisations, for example, in considering how to develop the services that we offer them.

We ask for your email address and your name so that we can:

  • Notify you of a new Insight; provide you with a summary of it as well as a direct link to the full text.
  • Inform you of changes to the services that we provide.
  • Inform you of changes to this privacy policy and the terms of use of our website.
