Data controller and data processor

With the exception of the Solicitors Regulation Authority logo displayed on the website (as to which see below), the data controller with overall responsibility for deciding how data from the website is collected, used and stored is Colina Greenway Limited (registered in England, company number 7586807), referred to in this notice as “we” or “us”.

We may also act as data processor when you email us personal data using the contact details on the website. This is explained further below.

Our registered office and postal address is Sheraton House, Castle Park, Cambridge, CB2 0AX.

Solicitors Regulation Authority Logo

We are required by our regulator, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”) to show its clickable logo on our website. The SRA is the data controller in respect of this logo and data collected in relation to it.

The SRA has contracted with a company called Yoshki to implement and maintain the clickable logo. We have no control whatsoever over how the logo operates or what data is collected but the SRA has provided us with the following information about the data it collects from our website.

When you visit our website your IP address is sent to Yoshki so that the SRA logo will load. Yoshki do not log any IP addresses that are sent to their server and so no record of any IP addresses that it receives are kept or used in any way other than to display the logo.

Yoshki uses Google Analytics to provide them with reporting information, including the number of times the SRA logo is hovered over, viewed and clicked. IP addresses are masked and are not stored, written to disc or used further by Google. We understand that Yoshki have confirmed to the SRA that the IP address is stored as 0.0.0.0 for all visitors.

Google Analytics gives Yoshki and the SRA access to the following data:

  • which law firm websites have implemented the SRA clickable logo code. This is to help prevent inappropriate usage of the SRA clickable logo and to see which firms have adopted the service
  • how many times the SRA clickable logo has been clicked – this is to help manage system performance and to gain insight into usage.

The SRA has advised us that:

  1. The information they collect is only ever shared between the SRA and Yoshki, to facilitate the SRA logo service; and
  2. Yoshki does not access, record or store any additional data such as IP addresses, page navigation behaviour, etc.

Data collected from website users

If you simply browse the website then a limited amount of personal data is collected, as follows.

Server logs: Your access to the website is logged on the servers that host it. Information we collect includes IP addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, platform type and time stamps. This information may be used by trusted third parties, in accordance with our instructions, for administration of the site and to assist in tracing the source of any attack on the website servers. This data will be deleted from the server logs after a maximum of 2 months.

See section above for an explanation of the data collected by the SRA and its supplier Yoshki. We do not have control over or access to any of the data collected by the SRA or Yoshki.
