You can turn off cookies in your browser by changing its settings

You can block cookies by activating a setting on your browser allowing you to refuse cookies. You can also delete cookies through your browser settings. If you turn off cookies, you can continue to use the website and browse its pages, but the website and certain services may not work effectively.

We will inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for marketing and if third parties are involved. You can opt out from marketing by emailing us via our contact us page

Your rights

You can exercise your rights by sending us an email via our contact us page

You have the right to access information we hold about you

This includes the right to ask us supplementary information about:

  • the categories of data we’re processing
  • the purposes of data processing
  • the categories of third parties to whom the data may be disclosed
  • how long the data will be stored (or the criteria used to determine that period)
  • your other rights regarding our use of your data

We will provide you with the information within one month of your request, unless doing so would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other (e.g. another person’s confidentiality or intellectual property rights). We’ll tell you if we can’t meet your request for that reason.

You have the right to make us correct any inaccurate personal data about you

You can object to us using your data for profiling you or making automated decisions about you

We may use your data to determine whether we should let you know information that might be relevant to you (for example, tailoring emails to you based on your behaviour). Otherwise, the only circumstances in which we will do this is to provide the Lawyers of Tomorrow service to you.

We will give you a copy of your data in CSV or JSON so that you can provide it to another service. We will not do so to the extent that this involves disclosing data about any other individual.

You can do this by asking us to erase any personal data we hold about you, if it is no longer necessary for us to hold the data for purposes of your use of Lawyers of Tomorrow.

You have the right to lodge a complaint regarding our use of your data

Please tell us first, so we have a chance to address your concerns. If we fail in this, you can address any complaint to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, either by calling their helpline or as directed on their website at www.ico.org.uk.


How secure is the data we collect?

We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. For more information on our efforts to ensure your data is held in a secure manner, please see our data security policy.

And please remember:

  • You provide personal data at your own risk: unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure
  • You are responsible of your username and password: keep them secret and safe!

If you believe your privacy has been breached, please contact us immediately via our contact us page

We will delete your personal data from our archives no later than 6 years from the last time you used Lawyers of Tomorrow services or as agreed with you in a separate contract.


Third parties who process your data

We need to use third parties to help us host our website and applications, communicate with customers, power our emails etc. We partner with third parties that we have chosen because we believe they are the best in their field at what they do.

When we do this, sometimes it is necessary for us to share your data with them in order to get these services to work well. Your data is shared only when strictly necessary and according to the safeguards and good practices detailed in this Privacy Policy.


Cookies

We use cookies. Unless you adjust your browser settings to refuse cookies, we (and these third parties) will issue cookies when you interact with Lawyers of Tomorrow. These may be ‘session’ cookies, meaning they delete themselves when you leave Lawyers of Tomorrow, or ‘persistent’ cookies which do not delete themselves and help us recognise you when you return so we can provide a tailored service.


Can we make this policy better?

If you made it to the bottom of this policy statement, then well done!

We have provided this Privacy Policy taking inspiration from Juro, the end-to-end contracts management solution, and pioneers of great legal design and we have endeavoured to make it as transparent, useful and engaging as possible (and of course making it GDPR complaint).

You can find links to our two interviews with Richard Mabey, the CEO of Juro, from our home page, when we discuss legal design in detail, and how principles legal design drive everything that Juro does.

If you think we can improve this policy in any way then please let us know by contacting us

From time to time we will of course update this policy and for really significant changes we will notify you by email.
