Data Controller

The Data Controller is LSID. LSID is subject to the UK Data Protection Act 1998. It is our responsibility to safeguard the information within our care and we are committed to managing our data in a secure and responsible manner. This online privacy notice describes the data privacy practices that are applicable to www.legalservicesdigest.com and related or derivative sites wholly owned and operated by LSID: www.legalservicesdigest.co.uk, www.lsidigest.com, www.lsidigest.co.uk, www.leganomics.com, www.leganomics.co.uk, collectively known as the "LSID websites".  The same data privacy practices apply to personal data from individuals and companies that we collect, process and manage in relation to any events we organize and any publications we produce.

The LSID websites may provide links to other websites which are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours. We encourage you to carefully read the online privacy notices of these other websites to ensure that you understand their practices and the relevant distinctions.

What Information Do We Collect?

LSID's primary goal in collecting personal information from you is to give you an enjoyable customised experience whilst allowing us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs.

You can access our sites' home pages without subscribing or registering. Should you wish so, you can register online with your personal details to attend events or receive publications and other information. We collect personal information from you through the use of online forms and every time you email us your details. We also collect information about the transactions you undertake including details of payment cards used.

We also collect information about website visitors indirectly through standard web logs, such as IP addresses, browser types (e.g. Internet Explorer), areas of the website that are visited, and the website from which a visitor came. We routinely use this web log information in the aggregate in order to administer and improve our website. While some of this data may be traceable to an individual, we only seek to identify individuals whom we believe are using our website for improper purposes.

From time to time we may also collect information from business partners.

How Do We Use and Share Information?

As a matter of principle LSID does not share, sell, rent or distribute for commercial gain your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.

LSID uses the identifiable individual and business information that we collect to carry out transactions that you request or authorize and offer our products and services.

We process personal information for the purposes of:

(a) providing and personalising our services;

(b) dealing with your enquiries and requests;

(c) administering orders and accounts relating to our suppliers or customers;

(d) administering membership records;

(e) crime prevention and prosecution of offenders;

(f) maintaining information as a reference tool or general resource;

(g) providing reservation or booking services;

(h) carrying out market research campaigns; and

(i) providing you with information about products and services.

We may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individuals are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes. From time to time, LSID compiles online and offline transaction and registration information for internal analysis, such as quality assurance, customer experience and market research.

If you would not like your personal information to be used in the ways outlined above, you may opt out by: (1) informing any of our officers, directors or employees in writing in the normal course of business, (2) sending us an email at privacy@legalservicesdigest.com, or (3) writing to us at the following address: Data Protection Officer, LSID, 1 Yeoman Street, Suite 19, London SE8 5DP.

Disclosures

When necessary LSID shares information with third-party service providers, such as credit card processors, auditors, attorneys, consultants and contractors, in order to support LSID's websites and business operations. LSID contractually requires that these recipients only use the information for the intended purpose of the disclosure and that they destroy or return the information when it is no longer needed. When necessary or appropriate, we may disclose information in response to a court order, subpoena, law enforcement proceeding, regulatory inquiry or when otherwise legally required. We may also disclose information as required or appropriate in order to protect our website, business operations or legal rights, or in connection with a sale or merger involving LSID's assets or business.

Cookies, Web Beacons, Pixel Tags and GIFs

We design the layout and features of our website so that new visitors may anonymously learn about our products and services without revealing their identities. From time to time we use cookies or Web beacons to collect limited data, such as the date, time and areas of our website that are visited, as well as the website from which the new visitor came. When you select one of our products or services, register for a newsletter or e-mail alert, or complete a survey, we may try to identify your browser and we may combine information from cookies, Web beacons and other information collected online with other data that we maintain about you. By improving the features, marketing and content of our website and by making your online experience more convenient and meaningful, we are able to better serve our customers' needs.

A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Find out more about the use of cookies on www.cookiecentral.com.

We use cookies to identify you when you visit this web site and to keep track of your browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile. Our use of cookies also allows registered users to be presented with a personalised version of the site, carry out transactions and have access to information about their account. We use cookies to store login or other information on your computer, which serves to improve our website functionality and tailor our services to your preferences and interests. For certain services, we offer users the ability to store a user ID or password within a cookie so that they do not need to re-enter it when they subsequently return to our website. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and to assess which parts of the site are most popular. This information helps us to constantly improve our website and better serve our customers. We do not store credit/debit card numbers in cookies.

Most Internet browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies and how long to keep them on their hard drive. You may reset your browser to refuse cookies and still use our website, although website access and functionality may be slower and less convenient.

A Web beacon is a graphic image, such as a pixel tag or clear GIF, which is placed on a Web page or in an e-mail message to monitor user activity, such as whether the Web page or e-mail message is accessed or clicked. They are often invisible because they are very small in size. They are also used on many Web pages for alignment purposes. We sometimes use Web beacons to provide an independent accounting of how many people visit our website or to gather statistics about browser usage on our website. Some of our Web pages and HTML-formatted e-mail newsletters may use Web beacons in conjunction with cookies. It is difficult for you to limit the use of Web beacons because there is no easy way to distinguish their use from alignment and other purposes. Web beacons may also be loaded from a different Web server than the rest of the page.

Data Security and Internet-based Transfers

LSID employs commercially reasonable and appropriate data security safeguards that are consistent with generally accepted industry standards and our business operations. We operate a secure transmission method to send us personal data identifiers, such as credit card details and bank account numbers.

We have implemented information security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification, and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. LSID requires employees to complete appropriate training on data management and security practices. All our employees and data processors (i.e. those who process your personal data on our behalf, for the purposes listed above), who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your personal data.

LSID also manages a service provider due diligence program to ensure that our vendors likewise employ adequate data collection, processing, transfer, management and security measures in carrying out their services on our behalf.

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing this web site and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.

LSID may transfer your personal data, for the purposes listed in this Privacy Policy, to third parties which may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area. This may include transfers to service providers to LSID in the USA. In all circumstances, LSID contractually binds these third parties to protect your personal data and use it only for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy in furtherance of LSID's operations.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

If we make changes to our Privacy Policy, we will post these changes on our website in order to keep you informed of how we collect, use, manage, disclose and protect your personal information. Such changes will be posted in this section of our online privacy notice and the policy effective date will be updated accordingly.

By using our website or products and services, you hereby consent to our collection, use, management, retention and disclosure of your information as described in this privacy policy.
