For the purpose of data protection legislation (which includes the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679)) (the “GDPR”)), Direct Reports Ltd, is the “data controller”. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this policy.

We are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our clients, business contacts and website visitors. This Privacy Policy therefore provides detailed information on when and why we hold personal information, how we use it and the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others.

Client and business contact details

As a client or business contact you should be aware that your contact details will be stored on our secure networks. We take the security of such information very seriously and have policies in place to ensure it. Please contact us if you would like to know more about our confidentiality and data protection policy.

We maintain lists of clients and business contacts, restricted to information on name, organisation, role and email address. We use this information for the administration of the work we undertake for or with you. We do not pass on your details to other organisations and businesses except for the purposes of the administration of your account or unless legally required to do so.

Where personal information is held electronically, it is held on a computer system that is owned and controlled by Direct Reports Ltd. or such other third party appointed by Direct Reports Ltd.

How long we will retain your data

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data; the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data; and the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.


We email subscribers with our quarterly newsletter “From every angle” to keep them informed of relevant developments in the world of investigation and dispute resolution. Subscribers are only those who have in the past agreed to receive the newsletter. You can unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each newsletter

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletters. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks, using industry-standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our communications. MailChimp, whose servers are located in the US, complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and has certified its adherence to the Privacy Shield Principles. Please see MailChimp’s privacy notice for more information.

Emails about our services may occasionally be sent to current and previous clients and carefully selected prospective clients, whose contact details are sourced from open websites.

We commit to ensuring that these communications are relevant and not excessive. We also commit to removing your details from our mailing list as soon as you express a wish not to receive further communications, in which case we will keep only enough detail on our records to ensure that we do not email you again.

We believe these communications are in the legitimate interest of our business, and they are intended to be useful and informative for our clients and business contacts.
