Parmar & Co Solicitors is committed to protecting your personal information.
When you use our sites and services we want you to be confident that your personal information is safe and secure. This Privacy Notice and Policy explains the following:
Who we are
We are Parmar & Co Solicitors Limited (company number 02857601) and our registered address is 1st Floor, Cedar House, The Oaks Business Park, Longridge Road, Preston, PR2 5BQ (referred to as “we” or “us” or “our”).
We are registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office with registration number ZA187662 for the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”). Our Data Protection Officer is Mr Shailesh Parmar who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Privacy Notice and policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed. A reference to “you” or “your” is a reference to a user of our site and/or to a user that makes an enquiry about our services.
How we collect your personal information
We may obtain personal information from you, if you complete an enquiry / claim form, or request a call back, through our website, mobile applications or other similar device.
If you request a call back or if you call us directly, we will store the information you give us. All calls to our offices are recorded for training and regulatory purposes.
What personal information we collect
The information we collect may include your name, address, contact details (such as email address and phone number), date of birth, insurance details, national insurance number, details regarding your health and injury and any other information relevant to your claim.
While we always try to get consent from the injured party before processing their personal data, this isn’t always possible (e.g. where the accident victim is a child, non-English speaker, an elderly/infirm relative or where the injured party has consented to another person to provide his or her details to us). In these cases, to ensure that our services are accessible to all accident victims, we may process personal data provided by a third party e.g. the parent of a child, translator, friend or relative.
We will always ask the person providing the Personal Information whether the injured party has consented to the processing of their information. This will be documented by call recordings with the third party and noted on our internal systems.

Securing your Personal Information
Your personal data’s security is very important to us. This is why, where it’s appropriate, our Sites use Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) to help keep information about you secure.
However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we can’t guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we’ve received your information, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
