By completing any of our forms or sending us information, you are providing personal information to Stephen Wawn & Associate Lawyers.

Who do we collect the personal information from?

We generally collect your personal information directly from you. However, in some cases, we may receive your personal information from a third party.

We collect your personal information to:

  • provide legal services to you
  • communicate with you to offer products, services and events

Without your personal information, we may not be able to provide legal services and products to you or provide a seamless experience when providing services to you.

Who are the types of bodies and persons to whom we usually disclose your personal information?

Your personal information may be provided to:

  • our professional advisors and suppliers (strictly on the basis that the information is to be used only for providing services to you and us, and that the personal information must not be disclosed);
