    Aamer Anwar & Co is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. We comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) and the local laws applicable in the various countries in which we operate. In this notice, we will tell you in detail how we use and share your personal information and explain your rights regarding how we use your personal information.

    Who is Aamer Anwar & Co?

    Aamer Anwar & Co is a law firm with headquarters in Glasgow, Scotland and with influence all over the world. Aamer Anwar & Co controls the processing of any personal data that you provide to us. You can also contact our Data Protection Officer if you have an enquiry or question.

    What Personal Data do we collect?

    The GDPR defines “personal data” as any information that relates to you and that identifies you. This can be either directly from this information or indirectly, by reference to other information that we have access to. The personal data that we collect, and how we collect it, depends upon how you interact with us. Categories of personal data that we collect include:

    • Contact information such as name, email address and telephone number
    • Biographical information such as job title, employer, photograph and video or audio content including you
    • Marketing, communication preferences and related information

    • Billing and financial information (billing address, bank account and payment information)
    • Services information (details of services that we have purchased from you)
    • Special categories of data such as race and ethnicity, trade union membership, information about health or information, political opinions or religious beliefs
    • Information relating to children or regarding criminal matters

    Personal data we collect from you

    We collect personal data directly from you:

    • When a client contacts Aamer & Anwar & Co for information about our legal services, it is important for us to ask for information that we need in order to provide those services. This information includes, but is not limited to contact details, billing information, and information necessary to conduct checks and data relevant to the services provided by Aamer Anwar & Co. Information provided by a client (or prospective client) will often include personal data that relates to a person(s) whose information is relevant for instruction; for example, a friend, partner, or family member may call our offices asking to intervene on behalf of another individual who has gotten in trouble with the police or represents a client in a legal dispute.
    • Occasionally Aamer Anwar & Co will have employment opportunities. Candidates applying for a job with our firm will need to supply personal data and other information relevant to their application.
    • Our office is equipped with security cameras. If you visit our office, we may collect information that we need to identify you and complete the necessary security checks. Your image may be collected by CCTV.

    If you provide information to us about another person, you must ensure that you comply with any legal obligations that may apply to your provision of the information to us, and to allow us, where necessary, to share that information with other relevant parties; for example, if a friend or family member has been arrested, it may be necessary for us to contact Law Enforcement Agencies to secure their release or obtain additional information.

    Most of the personal data that we collect about you will be information that you provide to us voluntarily. In some circumstances we may also receive information from:

    • Other firms of solicitors
    • The Crown Office & other Offices of the Public Prosecutor

    • Our clients, especially when we handle personal data on their behalf
    • Regulatory bodies like Scottish Legal Aid Board and Social Work departments
    • Credit reference agencies
    • Other companies providing services to us
    • Some of these third party sources may include publically available sources of information.
