Once we have received your information, Parity Legal will use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access through the use of password encrypted files.

Our site uses SSL encryption technology – you can tell whether a page is secure as ‘https’ will replace the ‘http’ at the front of the domain in your browser address window and a small locked padlock will also appear beside the URL.

All of our employees, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of your personal data, are obliged by law to respect and abide by the confidentiality of our users’ personal data.
