We will keep your personal data after we have finished acting for you.  We will do so for one of these reasons:

Where your personal data is held

Information may be held at our offices and those of our third-party agencies, service providers, representatives, and sometimes agents.  We maintain your data in the United States of America and many of our third-party agencies, services providers, representatives, and agents are based in the United States of America.  If you are from the European Union or European Economic Area, processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside of the European Union or European Economic Area.  We ensure protection is afforded to your data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We use providers based in the USA which are part of the Privacy Shield, requiring them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the U.S.  For further details, see European  Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
  • If we are using non-USA providers, we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data to the European Commission.  For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.
  • On rare occasions where we may use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which may give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.  For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third parties.

Please contact us at info@thejaneylawfirm.com if you want information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EU or EEA.
