The information we collect about you and how we use it
You may use our website without being required to give us any information. However you may provide certain information about yourself voluntarily in order that we can contact you. Alternatively, you may voluntarily provide personal information as requested in order for you to benefit from services provided by CompensationClaims.co, including your full name, date of birth, address for the last 3 years, e-mail address, telephone number(s) and detailed circumstances of your query.
We need this information in order to process your potential claim. We also require this information to provide you with the relevant advice regarding the validity of your claim. This information is used by us, partner companies and our agents and sub-contractors. This information is also used for the prevention of fraud and the prevention of money laundering.
We trust you will understand that our duty of confidentiality may need to be overridden in exceptional circumstances: where we have reason to believe a crime is about to be committed; where the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 or the Money Laundering 2003 Regulations apply; or where required by statute or law.
We may require to disclose information pertaining to you (including your name, address and national insurance number) to another party to progress your matter as per your instructions, for example, enquiry agents, experts, hire companies, storage and recovery companies, insurers, medical agencies, doctors, hospitals, costs draftsmen, courts and any other person, company or body connected to your matter. We trust you have no objection to the same unless you advise us to the contrary. A third party auditing company, for example the Solicitors Regulation Authority, may audit our files chosen at random. We trust you have no objections to your file being reviewed/audited, if chosen, unless you advise us to the contrary.
We monitor telephone conversations, written communications and emails as well as collecting usage statistics and patterns on our website in order to improve and enhance our service. From time to time we may pass this aggregate information and statistics to third party companies in order to develop our business. The statistics will not include information that can be used to identify an individual.
