Privacy Policy

Cookies and Privacy

This is Farillio’s website. It’s owned and administered by us, Farillio Limited. We designed the site to provide you with useful legal and business information, resources and solutions.

We know you want to feel secure when you visit our site. That’s why we’re committed to maintaining your privacy and protecting your personal data whenever you interact with us. You can be confident that we’ll always be transparent about the way we operate and what that means for you.

So, what you’ll find here is our cookies and privacy policy. It sets out the basis on which we will handle or process any personal data that we collect from you, or that you provide to us.

Even though having a cookie and privacy policy is a standard feature for all legally compliant websites, please make sure that you take the time to read through ours carefully.

Consent

If you browse our site, we’re legally entitled to treat that browsing activity as:

  1. acceptance by you of the terms of this cookies and privacy policy. (The only way that you can avoid this is to immediately leave our website without browsing any further.) 
    and
  2. consent by you to the collection and use of your personal information in the manner set out below.

Coverage

Our cookies and privacy policy covers information which is collected by us from this website only.

Other sites to which our site might link are not covered by our policy. If you follow a link to any of these websites, then the terms and policies of those other sites will apply to you. We are not responsible or liable for them. Do check their policies before you start browsing or submit any personal data to them.

On our site, we collect personal information from you in 2 ways:

  1. indirectly (e.g. through our website’s technology) and
  2. directly (e.g. if you submit a form online, or if you create or are provided with user names, passwords and/or submit other personal details to us)

IP addresses and cookies

Our internet access logs are a good example of how we collect information indirectly When you access our website, your internet protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type is automatically identified, collected and placed in our internet access logs, which we use for system administration and statistical analysis.

Direct collection of information may happen in several ways, including by cookies. Most websites use cookies to make them work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information on how site-visitors are using the site. In our case, they help us to understand how we could better improve the design, layout, content and/or functionality of our site.

Cookies are essentially small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive by websites that you visit. They save and retrieve information about your visit to that website – for example, how you entered the site, how you navigated through it and what information and documentation interested you. The advantage for you is that when you go back to that website again, it can give you more tailored options based on the information that it has stored about you during your last visit. The more you use and visit a site, the more intelligently it can help to tailor your experience.

Some of our cookies are used simply to collect information about how visitors use our website and these types of cookies collect the information anonymously.

Where there is a log-in process relating to any sign-ups or membership of our site, we also use cookies to store personal registration information, saving you the effort of re-providing it to us every time that you come back to use the website.

If you’re uncomfortable about cookies, you can disable them on your computer by changing your settings in the preferences or options menu in your browser. You can set your browser to reject or block cookies or to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. You can also delete any cookies that are already stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Wherever you delete, block or disable cookies, however, you also prevent yourself from being able to navigate to or use substantial parts of a web-site. That will happen with our site too. This is because some of the cookies that we use are essential for parts of our web-site to operate.

To find out more about cookies, including to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies on our site, please leave it immediately and then delete and block all cookies from our site.

What do we do with your information?

We use the information that we collect to help us to identify ways to improve our site and to provide you with the best customer experience possible. Being able to know how many visitors come to the site, the pages that they visit, where they came from, the numbers of downloads that they make or products that they buy, gives us a clear indication of what our visitors want, like and might even need to have more of.

There may be times when we need or want to use your personal information for other purposes, especially if you are selecting some of our products or where you may wish to experience some of the more sophisticated services and functions that our site can offer. Wherever any of your chosen activities trigger the submission and collection of additional personal data from you, we will notify you of this. You will then have the option to consider whether to proceed with that activity or not.

Sharing your personal information with others

We don’t do it unless we have your direct consent to do so, which might be the case, for example, where you have requested assistance from one of our collaborating law firms. We will not otherwise pass your information to anyone else or indeed sell it to anyone else. It is completely up to you whether you want your personal information to be provided to anyone else.

Sensitive personal information

This is information that is identified by the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 and other relevant data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances, the need to obtain explicit consent.

The categories of information listed comprise: personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, colour, nationality, political opinions or convictions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or handicap, genetic code, addictions, sexual life (including sexual orientation), pregnancy, property matters or criminal convictions or record.

We don’t collect sensitive personal data through this site, as a matter of course.

Where we might do so will be in relation to the pay as you go or more advanced products or advisory services that you may request from our site. If we do actively seek to collect any sensitive personal data, we will ask you up-front to consent to our proposed use of it.

We may also collect from sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data, provided that we do so lawfully, in accordance with the applicable laws.

Security

We take all reasonable steps to maintain the security of our website, but you’ll know that the open nature of the internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that personal information you provide will not be intercepted by others and decrypted.

Policy changes

Best practice in relation to cookies, internet and data privacy is evolving. So, we reserve the right here to amend our cookies and privacy policy at any time and from time to time. Wherever we do make changes, you will find the most updated version on this page. It’s worth checking back here from time to time so that you’re always aware of our latest position in relation to the information that we collect.

By continuing to use our site after amendments have been made to this policy, whether you have read them or not, you will be considered by law to have consented to these changes.
