Links to other sites
If you use a link on this Website to take you to another website not managed by us, your privacy will not be protected in accordance with this policy. You will need to check that website’s own privacy statement.

We make no representations as to the accuracy or any other aspect of information contained in other websites.

Where we store your personal information

We store your information in hard copy and in electronic format. We use industry standard technical and organisational measures to protect information from the point of collection to the point of destruction.

We will only transfer personal data to a third party if it agrees to comply with those procedures and policies, or if it puts in place adequate measures itself. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

International transfers
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to transfer and store your personal data outside of the UK and the European Economic Area (“EEA”) as follows:

  • affiliated firms which are part of the Milberg brand;
  • our service providers located outside the EEA;
  • if you are based outside the EEA; and
  • where there is an international aspect to the matter which we have been instructed on. 

Where personal data is transferred to and stored outside the EEA, we take steps to provide appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data, including:

  • transferring your personal data to a country, territory, sector or international organisation which the European Commission has determined ensures an adequate level of protection, as permitted under Article 45(1) GDPR; or
  • entering into standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, obliging recipients to protect your personal data as permitted under Article 46(2)(c) GDPR.

In the absence of an adequacy decision or of appropriate safeguards as referenced immediately above, we will only transfer personal data to a third country where one of the following applies (as permitted under Article 49 GDPR):

  • the transfer is necessary for the performance of any contractual engagement with you;
  • the transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
  • you have provided explicit consent to the transfer.


If you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA, please contact us at facebookyouoweus@milberg.co.uk.

Data retention
We will retain any data we collect from you in relation to this website for a period of six years after the representative action has ended. After this period of time we will either permanently destroy any data we hold or ensure that it is placed outside of daily use by any third party.

Complaints
Our Privacy Manager can be contacted via the email facebookyouoweus@milberg.co.uk or by post to our office address, above. Complaints relating to the handling or processing of your personal data should be addressed to the Privacy Manager in the first instance.

You have the right to make a complaint at any time with a supervisory authority, in particular in the EU (or EEA) state where you work, normally live or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) who can be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/ or telephone on 0303 123 1113. 

Changes to the privacy policy

We want you to be aware of the information we collect and how we use it at all times.

If we need to change our Privacy Policy we will post the changes on this page, and may place notices on other pages of the website to draw your attention to any change. If at any time you have provided us with your email address via an enquiry form we will send an email to that email address notifying you of any changes.
