Areas of our work where we collect personal identifiable information and data

Clients and Business Contacts

Climate Law and Policy processes personal data about contacts of existing and potential clients and/or any individuals associated with them through emails, by phone or electronic calendar invites. We process this personal data solely for the purposes of our business contract and on the basis that it is in our legitimate interests to do so (i.e. to ensure that we can manage our relationship with our clients). This information will be retained securely for as long as necessary for the purposes set out for that business contract.

Personal Data, such as emails or phone numbers, will never be given or shared with 3rd parties without express permission and only then will it be given if there is a business case for doing so.

If you provide personal information to Climate Law and Policy for any of our projects that include bank details, we have an additional layer of security specifically to protect this information internally.

In addition, we also have in place procedures and measures to manage and protect commercially confidential information we are required to handle through delivering our services to clients.

These are normally dealt with through specific NDAs and contractual agreements as required.


Social media

We use third party providers as LinkedIn to manage our social media interactions and they all have their own privacy policies. If you contact us via social media, we will use your social media handle and name, together with any other personal data you provide in your communication, to respond to your correspondence. We do this on the basis that it is in our legitimate interests to do so to make sure that we handle correspondence appropriately.
