Privacy Policy

Carter Jonas LLP is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and will treat all information held about you in accordance with this policy which is in line with current UK legislation. For these purposes Carter Jonas is a ‘data controller’ meaning that we decide how and why the personal data that we collect is used. 

This Privacy Policy explains:

  • How we collect personal information. 
  • How we use the information which we collect.
  • Your rights and how you can manage the use of your personal information.  
  • Procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy and how we use cookies.
  • How you can contact us or make a complaint. 

We only gather the personal information we need for business purposes in order to provide you with the services you have requested or to comply with our regulatory obligations, as well as appropriate news and information where you have agreed to this. The personal information we typically collect includes:

-  Your name and email address.
Contact telephone numbers for you.
-  Details of your business, where we have a business-to-business relationship with you. 
-  Sectors and geographic regions that you are interested in.
-  Your future communication preferences.

For the Provision of our Services

We use the information we gather to provide you with the services you have requested. Depending on which service you receive we may need to share your personal information with our subcontractors who are involved in the provision of our services such as contractors, payment providers and credit reference agencies. We need to process your personal information in this way to maintain our relationship with you and to enter into and perform our obligations under any contract we have with you.

For Marketing, Advertising and Other Communications

If you have opted in via our website or over the telephone to receive marketing communications from us, we will handle your personal information to provide you with marketing communications in line with any preferences you have told us about. When we send you marketing emails we rely on your consent to contact you for marketing purposes. You are not under any obligation to provide us with your personal data for marketing purposes.  You can tell us that you do not want your personal information to be processed in this way at any time by contacting us at

or, where relevant, by following the unsubscribe link in every marketing communication you receive from us.

If our Business is sold

We will transfer your personal information to a third party:

-  if we sell or buy any business or assets, we will provide your personal information to the seller or buyer (but only to the extent we need to, and always in accordance with data protection legislation); or
-  if Carter Jonas LLP or the majority of its assets are acquired by somebody else, in which case the personal information held by Carter Jonas will be transferred to the buyer. 


We process your personal information for this purpose because we have a legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by the buyer. If you object to our use of your personal information in this way, the relevant seller or buyer of our business may not be able to provide services to you.

We may record outbound telephone calls for quality monitoring purposes; where we do so the parties to the call will be made aware. Call recordings are retained for a maximum of 30 days.

In some circumstances we may also need to share your personal information if we are under a duty to disclose or share it to comply with a legal obligation. 

Carter Jonas will only process your information if we have a business reason to do so. Generally this occurs when you make a request of us, such as to find a property suitable for your needs. Where we need to manage your account information we will do so in compliance with the obligations placed on us by law. 

We do not sell or share your personal information to companies outside of Carter Jonas, and we only share your personal information within Carter Jonas as necessary. 

We may, from time to time, contact you by post, e-mail or telephone to ask you for your feedback and comments on our services. If you no longer wish to receive marketing or other correspondences, please let us know. The simplest way to do this is to send an email message to
