Where we store and transfer your personal information
We have a number of offices around the world and, as below, we may disclose personal information to third parties in certain circumstances.
Disclosure of your information
We may disclose personal information: to successors in title to our business; to any of our affiliated firms and entities; to suppliers and external agencies that we engage to process information on our and your behalf including to provide you with information that you have requested; to third parties (including, but not limited to, professional indemnity insurers, brokers, auditors and other professional advisors); to our clients in the course of providing services, and where disclosure is required by law or any regulatory authority, all as reasonably required for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice.

Therefore, by browsing this web site and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal information in this way. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to this web site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
This web site may, from time to time, contain links to other web sites which are outside of our control and are not covered by this Privacy Notice. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for other sites’ privacy policies. If you access other web sites using the links provided, please check their policies before submitting any personal information.
Access to information
You have a right to access personal information that we hold about you or to obtain a copy of it. Any access request may be subject to a fee (not to exceed £10 in the UK) towards our costs in providing you with details of the information that we hold about you. We may ask you to verify your identity and for more information about your request. To obtain a copy of the personal information that we hold about you, please write to us at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP, Adelaide House, London Bridge, London, EC4R 9HA (or, if you are based outside England and Wales, to your local office address), marked to the attention of the ‘Data Protection Officer, Risk and Compliance Department’.
