How we protect your information We ensure that all information that you provide us is stored using technical measures that are appropriate considering the nature, scope, context and purpose for which we are using it. Transfers outside of the EEA We may transfer the information that we collect about you outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) from time to time. This is due to the global nature of the internet. For instance, we may store certain information about you on servers which are located in the USA.

  • is listed on the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Retention Your information will only be retained by us for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which we collected it. Sometimes this will require us holding on to your information after the end of our contract with you (for example, to fulfill our legal obligations or accounting requirements). In determining the appropriate length of time to hold your personal information, we consider a variety of factors such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, 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 securely erase your information once it is no longer needed. Your rights concerning your information Under certain circumstances you have the right, by law, to:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly referred to as a “data subject access request”), which allows you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we lawfully process it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third-party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
