6. Where we store, process and transfer personal information

We work with third party service providers for cloud hosted service applications for example: legal practice management (time recording, client contact information, matter management and documents), data storage, office applications and client relationship management tools. These providers host cloud based platforms where personal information may be stored and processed. Following our IT Data Protection Policy, our cloud service suppliers are selected based on their ability to provide high standards of IT security including data encryption and two steps authentication for authorized users. Our major processors are listed in the table below. To review how these third-party service providers, use and process your personal information you should check their privacy notices and terms of service which we have detailed below.

At times processing of your personal data may occur outside of your home country. For residents of the European Union we use reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal information stays in the European Economic Area. To this end our preference is to select cloud service providers who host their data within the Europe Economic Area, however there are providers who do not offer this possibility, and in these cases personal information we collect may be transferred within or outside the country or territory where it was collected for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which your personal information was originally collected, or for purposes to which you have consented. In this situation we take steps to ensure your personal information is processed and transferred according to applicable law, such as the US-Swiss Privacy Shield, and take measures to ensure your rights are adequately protected by technical and contractual means.
