Where we need to collect personal data, whether by law, to process a request from you or to fulfil a contract with you, and you do not provide this data, we may not be able to follow your instructions or fulfil the contract.

If you have given your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent in whole or in part. To do so, please follow the unsubscribe link on any marketing email or invitation, or write directly to email@example.com.
Once we have received your request, we will no longer process your data for the purpose for which you originally consented. Withdrawal of consent to receive marketing communications will not affect the processing of personal data for the provision of our legal services.
How long your personal data is kept
We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, including to meet legal, accounting or reporting requirements and, if necessary, for DaringLaw to assert its rights or defend itself in legal proceedings, until the end of the statute of limitations or until the proceedings in question are closed.
In this respect, customer data is kept for the duration of the contractual relationship plus 5 years, the period of limitation for professional liability.
With regard to the prevention of money laundering and the financing of terrorism, the data is kept for 5 years after the end of the relationship with the firm. For accounting purposes, data is kept for 10 years from the end of the accounting year. Prospective clients' data is kept for a period of 3 years from the last registration for an event organised by the firm. At the end of the retention period, we will securely destroy your personal data in accordance with the applicable regulations.
