We collect most of the personal data we process directly from you, for example, if you contact us with an enquiry or sign up to our service.

Due to the nature of the services we provide, each client has individual needs and as such can consent as to what information they would like us to have and how they would like us to use it.

When you join our service, we ask you personal questions such as your address, date of birth and also some more private questions such as your National Insurance number and banking details. We only use these details as you consent us to, which is expressed on the ‘Consent to Share Information’ document which would have been presented to you at the initial meeting. This document allows you to confirm with us what data you would like shared and with whom. This information is known as ‘personal data’ which is data that can be used to identify you. The personal data we collect is largely determined by you, and the nature of your interaction with us (such as using our website, or contacting us with an enquiry and joining our service). Some of this more sensitive data is called “special category data”, and there are additional conditions which must be met when it is processed.

Depending on the package you are on and the level of services you require, we may need different information. We use this information to provide the best service possible.

We may also collect your personal data through observation, including when you visit our website. For more information about this, please refer to our cookie policy.

We may also receive information about you from people who:

• contact us with an enquiry, complaint or concern
• are involved in your life, such as family, friends, social workers, students, medical professionals and care workers
• We may not have any control over what personal data is sent to us (and received by us) through such channels. However, in this privacy notice, we have described the main types of personal data we expect to receive, and how we will use it.

For the avoidance of any doubt, we do not buy or sell your personal data.

Privacy and our role as your Attorney’s:

As part of our services you may sign a General Power of Attorney and Lasting Power of Attorney documents which authorise Emily Allchurch and Lindsey Balchin to act as your Attorneys, this gives them special powers with regards to information

For Lasting Powers of Attorney this could include:

– Speaking with medical professionals regarding a client’s health and medical conditions. This may also require the attorneys to store this information and pass on this information to family members and others involved in your care, such as care agencies and appropriate members of their staff.
– Storing your financial information such as banking details in order to manage your finances.

This data is of the utmost privacy and confidentiality, and the attorneys will try to involve you (where appropriate) to obtain consent regarding personal data storage and disclosure. Of course, this can only be done if you still have capacity. If a client does lack capacity, Attorneys should only ask for private information that will help them make a decision they need to make on behalf of the person who lacks capacity.

For a General Power of Attorney this could include:

– Access to banking information which is stored for our records to manage the client’s finances, in a secure manner.


We retain your personal data in accordance with our regulatory functions and legal obligations. This means as your Attorney’s and advocates, we require your data in order to best support you. However, if data is not needed or requested by a client to be removed from our system, we are happy to safely dispose of data.

If you no longer want us to use your information to provide our services to you, you can request that we erase your personal information after the applicable minimum time.

We will use your personal information where it is necessary for the investigation or hearing, in accordance with this privacy notice. For example, we will pass it on to the panel members conducting the hearing.

In deciding whether to share information, we weigh up and balance the wider public interest in disclosing information against individual rights, including the right to privacy.

You can tell us at any time if you do not want us to share information or if you have any concern about us sharing information with certain people. However, there may be occasions where our duty to protect the public takes priority over your views or wishes, and we may need to share that information in accordance with that duty. We will always do our best to tell you before we do so.

Depending on the circumstances, the information you provide may mean we are compelled to act, which could mean that the information you provide and/or your identity is shared with or otherwise made known to the subject of the concerns, including by virtue of the circumstances of your concerns or the details you provide. If a complaint or concern is raised by or about you, we need to assess or verify information related to your fitness to practise or registration, or we need to investigate an incident alleged to have taken place, we may share your personal data and the information you provide (or provided about you) with third parties (such as referees, education and training providers, qualification awarding bodies, other regulators, employers, other authorities such as the police, relevant NHS organisations, external lawyers and witnesses to any incident that is alleged to have taken place).

We will not share your contact details with people or organisations you raised the concern about.

Feedback and enquiries

If you contact us with feedback or an enquiry, the data we may collect or otherwise
process may include:

• the contact details you provide to enable us to respond to your request
• the details contained within your feedback or enquiry

Freedom of information requests

Information we hold may need to be disclosed in response to a Freedom of Information request. We endeavour to follow guidelines from the Information Commissioner’s Office in responding to requests, including through the appropriate application of exemptions to the duty to confirm or deny whether information is held, and the duty to communicate it if so.

If you submit a Freedom of Information request to us, we may publish the request, or details of it, and our response. Where we do so, we will not publish information which identifies you and will redact or remove any other personal data mentioned in your request as appropriate, if applicable.
