What we use your personal information for

We do not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make personal information commercially available to any third party, except as described in this policy or with your prior permission. 

Sharing information across our worldwide network

Any information that you provide to us may be shared with and processed by any entity in the worldwide network of Allen & Overy, our associated firms and certain of our service providers.  This may entail a transfer of your information from a location within the European Economic Area (the "EEA") to outside the EEA, or from outside the EEA to a location within the EEA.  The level of information protection in countries outside the EEA may be less than that offered within the EEA, however we have procedures in place to ensure the protection of your information.

If in the future we re-organise or transfer all or part of our business we may need to transfer your information to new Allen & Overy entities or to third parties through which the business of Allen & Overy will be carried out. 

Electronic communications

Information that you send to us in electronic form may not be secure and, unless you are already a client, will not be treated as privileged or confidential. 

Legal Requirements

While it is unlikely, we may be required to disclose your information to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. We will use reasonable endeavours to notify you before we do this, unless we are legally restricted from doing so. 

Your rights

Under applicable data protection legislation we must ensure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. Therefore, please advise us of any changes to your information.
 
You are entitled to request details of the information we hold about you and to have it rectified or deleted as required by applicable data protection legislation. For more information please send an email to Allen & Overy.
