We take data protection very seriously and we are committed to safeguarding your personal information.

This Website Privacy Notice explains what personal information Hunters Law LLP (‘Hunters’, ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’) – in our capacity as Data Controller – may hold about you when you use our website (, what we use that information for, and who we share that information with.

It also sets out your rights in relation to your information and who you can contact for more information or if you have any queries or concerns about the use of your data.

Personal data

Personal data is anything that enables you to be identified or identifiable, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number. When you use our website, we only record the personal data you provide yourself; for instance, when you fill in a form.

We will not collect any special category personal data. This means information which reveals any of the following: racial or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or philosophical beliefs; trade union membership; genetic or biometric data; information concerning health, sex life or sexual orientation.

Collection of personal data

Below are some examples of how you may provide personal data to us:

  • Contacting us (e.g. by mail, email, or telephone)
  • Searching and browsing our website for content (which allows us to see your IP address)
  • Submitting information via a form on our website
  • Subscribing to newsletters and/or publications
  • Registering for or participating in events and conferences
  • Submitting CVs, resumes or work history information.

Use of personal information

When you provide personal information to us, we may use it for any of the purposes described in this Privacy Notice or as stated at the point of collection (or as obvious from the context of collection), including to:

  • Provide legal advice and services
  • Update and enhance our records
  • Manage our practice, statutory returns, and legal and regulatory compliance
  • Monitor and enforce compliance with our Terms of Business
  • Manage contracts of employment or for services
  • Market our services to new and existing contacts (see ‘Marketing‘ below)
  • Use for any other purposes for which you provided the information to us, including any of the purposes given in the ‘Collection of personal data’ section above
  • Administer and manage our website.

Legal grounds for processing personal information

We rely on one or more of the following processing conditions to:

  • Perform our contractual obligations to you (or taking requested steps before entering into a contract)
  • Satisfy any legal and regulatory obligations to which we are subject
  • Satisfy our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) in the effective delivery of information and services to you and in the effective and lawful operation of our businesses (provided these do not infringe your rights
  • (Where no other condition for processing is available) if you have agreed to us processing your personal information.

If you provide us with any personal data about a third party (including special category data) which is relevant to your relationship with us, for example, an employee or beneficiary in relation to your legal matter, we will have a lawful basis for processing that information. However, you should ensure that you are entitled to disclose those personal details to us before doing so.

Security of personal information

We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorised persons who are subject to confidentiality agreements are allowed access to personal data.

Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data over the internet (including by email) is never completely secure. We therefore cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or by us via email.

International transfers of personal information

Your personal data may be transferred to and stored outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If we transfer your personal data outside the EEA to someone or some organisation other than yourself, it will be only:

  • To a recipient located in a country which provides an adequate level of protection for your personal information; or
  • Under a written agreement which provides appropriate safeguards for you; or
  • With your explicit consent; or
  • Where it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract that we have with you or another person; or
  • It is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
  • It is in our legitimate interests (this will only be available to and used by us in very limited circumstances).

Retention of personal information

We will retain your personal information only for as long as we need it, given the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law, or otherwise for a legitimate interest or with your consent.

We retain personal data in order to:

  • Respond to any queries, complaints or claims made by you or on your behalf
  • Manage any longer-term relationships or requirements
  • Show that we have treated you fairly
  • Keep records required by law.

Different retention periods apply for different types of data. A copy of our retention policy is available on request.


From time to time, we may use your personal data to send you information about our services, events, publications, etc. which may be of interest to you.

These direct marketing communications may be provided to you via email or post. We will never send marketing communications via SMS or call you without having your specific consent to do so.

We will never sell your personal data. However, we may use it when appropriate with a limited number of third parties for joint marketing purposes, such as marketing email communications or where you book to attend one of our events.

You have the right to opt out of receiving any promotional communications at any time by unsubscribing via the email footer on our marketing emails, or by contacting

If you do choose to unsubscribe, we will delete most of the personal information we hold about you on our marketing database, but we may keep certain limited information about you so that we may honour your request.
