Our approach to privacy
We may collect personal identification information from visitors to our website when they use our site and when they submit an enquiry via the contact form on our website. We will collect personal identification information if they voluntarily submit such information to us.
We act primarily as a data processor for our clients. This means that we do not control the collection, use and storage of personal data provided to us by our clients, other than to carry out our obligations under our contracts with them, in accordance with the terms of those contracts. Consequently if we are processing personal data supplied to us by a client and a data subject raises a query with us, we will refer that query to our client rather than deal with it ourselves.
Should there be circumstances where we are not acting as a data processor for our clients, Leaman Crellin Limited would be the controller and responsible for any personal data.
