A J Carter and Co – Privacy Policy

Our communication with you
A J Carter and Co takes your privacy seriously. We will not sell, lease, or exchange your personal data to, or otherwise share your personal data with, third parties in ways other than described in this Privacy Policy. We use your personal data only for providing and improving our service to you as a client of this firm.

We will communicate with you by email, telephone or post in accordance with the terms of our engagement letter.

Your personal data
All personal data is held securely and our computer/servers have been tested against external hacking.  There are secure firewalls and up to date anti-virus software in place. 

We do not pass on your data to any third parties with two exceptions:

  • ·         Where required for compliance purposes such as to HM Revenue and Customs, Companies House or other law enforcement agencies.  In the normal course of events this is simply to be able to make suitable returns for tax purposes and filing with the Registrar of Companies where we agree to do that on your behalf.

  • ·         We offer fee protection insurance for our clients.  This is provided by Abbey Tax as we are not authorised as an insurance business.  For this purpose, information is passed on to Abbey Tax, a UK based organisation.  Data that is provided are our clients names and addresses, whether they may be suitable for fee insurance and whether they have taken it up before.  If you do not wish to be offered fee protection insurance please let us know and we can mark your records accordingly.

We reserve the right to disclose our files and any information necessary to regulatory bodies in the exercise of their powers.  This would be in exceptional cases such as where a client was committing terrorist, money laundering offences or we were under legal obligation to disclose based on a court order.

Retention of Data
Where data is held for legal compliance purposes the retention period will be as long as necessarily required by regulatory bodies such as H M Revenue and Customs.
