Consent – Where necessary we will only collect and process your personal information if you have consented for us to do so.

 

Legitimate Interests – We may use and process some of your personal information where we have sensible and legitimate business grounds for doing so.

6. How long do we keep your personal information for?

If, having registered for any of our services, you do not use them for a reasonable time (which may vary depending on the service(s) you’ve registered for but will typically be 12 months) we may contact you to ensure you’re still happy to receive communications from us. Even if we delete your personal information it may persist on back-up or archival media for legal, tax or regulatory purposes.

Our data processor has separate policies in place for these matters.

To protect your account, we ask you to choose a strong password to access your data on our Site. A strong password should include a mixture of letters and numbers. This password must be unique and must not be used anywhere else or for any other purpose. Your password can only be reset with access to the email address registered in our system. We do our best to keep the information you disclose to us secure. However, we can’t guarantee its security. By using our Site you accept the inherent risks of providing information online and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security. We also do our best to ensure that our data processor is properly secure.
