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 when you provide your details, and will not disclose it outside GBS, except to service providers acting on our behalf or in other very limited circumstances, for example, with your agreement or where we are legally obliged to do so.
GBS operates through various local legal entities which we add to or reorganise from time to time. When you provide information to any part of GBS you will in most cases be providing it to GBS as a whole, and should be aware that it may be accessed from countries whose laws provide various levels of protection for personal data, not always equivalent to the level of protection that may be provided in your own country.
We have robust information security management systems in place to protect your personal information, having been one of the first global law firms to be certified to the ISO27001 security standard. ISO27001 is an international information security standard which is widely recognised as an indication of best practice in information security and information risk management.
For a brief explanation of our AML policies and personal data collected in relation to them, see our legal statements.
We routinely record all telephone calls to our offices switchboard but the recording ends when the call is transferred onwards.
If you have any questions about our privacy policies, want to exercise your right to see a copy of the information that we hold about you, or think that information we hold about you may need to be corrected, want to delete all or any part of it or to object to the processing on legitimate grounds, please contact us with enquiry topic "Data privacy", or alternatively send a signed letter addressed to the Managing Partner of the relevant office.
