Retention of your personal data

We will keep your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary and for the purpose(s) for which it was collected, following which it will be deleted. The period for which we keep your Personal Data will include any period which may be necessary for the performance of contractual relationships between us or where we are required to keep your Personal Data for legal or regulatory reasons.  By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact and identity details and financial details) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.  To determine the appropriate retention period for other personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of your personal data, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Transfers of your data to third parties

We do not disclose your Personal Data to any third parties except as stated in this Privacy Notice, as otherwise permitted by law, or as authorised by you.

We may disclose your Personal Data to any member of our group of companies (this means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries) insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice.

We may also disclose your Personal Data to other companies who provide services to us including data management, data processing to satisfy legal requirements, IT, email delivery, website hosting, auditing and other third party services, or in the event of any reorganisation, merger, sale or other transfer of all or part of our business.  We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.  We do not allow our third party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

It may also be necessary for us to disclose your Personal Data to public or regulatory authorities in order for us to perform our contract with you or to comply with any legal or regulatory obligations to which we or you are subject.


We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
