Legal

The nature of our business means that our clients share private information during the course of an inquiry. This can be about personal or business issues, and often it is a blend of both. As a client of ours, you are protected by the Data Protection Act 1994, but we like to go beyond compliance with the law and to reassure you of our complete discretion.

Everything which our clients discuss with us is confidential and will remain that way. When we meet clients, we hope that everyone can see the kind of people we are, and that they can trust us with their deepest thoughts.

Trust works both ways. We also count on our clients to respect the decades of work we put into developing our methods and models, and that these are our intellectual property.

To make sure that we have covered all the legal points, we had our lawyers draw up the details and we’ve made them available below for you to read.

As one of our clients said, “If you feel as though the first thing you need to do is to sign a contract, you should ask yourself if you’re working with the right people.”

But we like to have it there to reassure you, just in case.
