Class Legal believes in transparency when it comes to the use of customer data, your privacy and protecting your data. We only collect and retain what’s necessary to provide our services and to communicate with our customers. We only use trusted third parties to process the data we have under our control and we endeavour to keep your data safe through the use of secure technology.
We do not share data with third parties other than with the data processors listed below. If we wanted to share data for commercial reasons, we would obtain your consent before doing so.

What this policy covers
What information do we collect and why?
If you order / enquire about a Class Legal product or service
If you order something or request a trial from us either via this website, by phone or by post your data will be processed by our third party customer relationship software, currently Salesforce https://www.salesforce.com/gdpr/overview/,
our event management provider, Eventbrite (see their site https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/support/articles/en_GB/Troubleshooting/eventbrite-eu-data-protection?lg=en_GB) if you have booked an event.
our webinar host, GoToWebinar, if you have registered for a webinar
We only collect data that we need to fulfil the order and to manage any ongoing responsibilities.
We process and store this data in order to carry out our contractual requirements to fulfil the order or enquiry and, if the service requires it, to supply you with updates / news of updates.
We may also occasionally contact you, as part of our legitimate interests, with details of closely related products and services that we think you will find useful but you can always ask that we do not send unrelated marketing emails by responding to the instructions on the email or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. Where we do sent marketing communications, we will match your purchasing data against the new product to indicate relevance but no other automated profiling is carried out, nor do we use third party data in combination with our own.
Your data is processed then stored while there is a continuing contractual relationship. Once that relationship ends, data will be stored for the duration of any relevant legal or contractual obligations.
Any payment details processed online are held by our third party services provider WorldPay using a secure connection. If we take an order by phone any details supplied will be destroyed as soon as the order is processed and the payment approved.
If you sign up to one of our newsletters we only collect your name and email address so we can provide you with the email newsletter and occasional offers based on your consent. You always have the right to unsubscribe, details of how to achieve this are set out in any emails sent.
If you visit one of our websites
We use necessary session cookies to ensure that you can use the ecommerce and other sites functions properly. These are deleted after 30 minutes of inactivity.
If you create an account on one of our websites but do not use it
Where you can create user accounts on a website as a precursor to subscribing, purchasing or to trial a product we will store your details in the relevant database. Each year we review the accounts held and delete any that have been dormant for 12 months prior to the review date.
If you email us
We use TLS to encrypt and protect email traffic in transit. If your email service does not support TLS, you should be aware that any emails we send or receive may not be protected in transit.
We monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send is within the bounds of the law.
Email is retained while there is a continuing contractual relationship or once that relationship ends, for the duration of any relevant legal or contractual obligations.
Where possible data is processed and stored within the EU. Where we use third party processors listed below, data may be stored overseas but only in countries with equivalent data protection standards or under the current EU / US privacy shield agreement.
