b) Information automatically collected from you
Like many other websites, we collect data through the patterns of your website usage in order to improve the relevance and performance of our websites and your experience using them (for example by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not).
We will only use the information that we hold about you to administer and monitor (including in relation to troubleshooting, data analysis, testing and security) the provision of the website to you and other users.
We partner with third parties (such as Google as the provider of reCAPTCHA, a service that helps to protect websites from spam and abuse). ReCAPTCHA works by collecting and analysing user activity to authenticate users.

Where we store your personal information
All information you provide to us for our use is stored on our secure servers which are located within the UK and the European Economic Area.
How long we keep your personal information for
If we collect your personal data, the length of time for which we retain it, is determined by a number of factors including the type of data, the purpose for which we use that data and our regulatory and legal obligations attached to the use of your personal data. We do not retain personal data in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.
We do not rely on your consent to receive Centralised Communications indefinitely. You will receive an email from us at intervals of no less than 2 years where you will be asked to re-confirm your consent and preferences for legal topics and disciplines to ensure that the data we hold about your preferences, and your contact details, are current and accurate.
If you apply for a job vacancy advertised on our website, we will keep the fact of your application and your contact information confidential. We will retain this information for no longer than 12 months. Candidates are informed that their CVs will be held for this period for future vacancy opportunities. Application forms give applicants the opportunity to object to their details being retained.
The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we have in place reasonable and appropriate controls to ensure that it remains secure against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, or unauthorised access.
Where we collect any special categories of personal data about you, we will apply additional security controls to protect it.
Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This policy does not apply to those other websites, so we encourage you to read their privacy statements. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you access them using links that we provide and their security cannot be guaranteed by Julian Taylor Solicitors Ltd.
In addition, if you have linked to our website from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party website and recommend that you check the policy of that third party website.
Where we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal data, as set out under How we use your personal data within our Privacy Notice, you may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing [email protected] (please use "Withdrawal of consent" as the subject heading of your email).
If you would like to withdraw your consent to receiving any Centralised Communications to which you previously opted-in, you can do so using our 'Unsubscribe' tool at the footer of the email, if available, or by emailing [email protected]
If you withdraw your consent, our use of your personal data before you withdraw your consent is still lawful.
