What you do with my personal information.
When we receive your enquiry, we ask for your name, email address and telephone number. We will then contact you via the provided telephone number, email and SMS (if required) to discuss your enquiry in further detail. You will answer a few medical related questions and we will present this information as consented by you back to the instructing solicitor. Your answers to the screening will stay on our records for future reference during any on-going claim including the investigation stage. All information you provide is private and confidential and will not be shared to any other third party, except for your instructing solicitor, without your permission to do so.
If we/or your solicitor deem that your claim does not possess ‘reasonable prospects of success’ we will remove all of your data after 16 months. This is so if you make a future enquiry or have an update to an existing claim, we have your previous claim information on record.
When you submit an enquiry, your claim enquiry is open for 12 months. An ongoing claim can take anything between 3 months – 5 years depending on the nature of the claim. If we have been unable to contact you, your data is then removed from our database after the 12 months no contact period.
If your claim is successful and we’ve received confirmation that your claim has been completed by the solicitor, your details will stay on our file as information only. If you choose to make another enquiry at a later stage, we will use the previous information as reference only.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.
