Where we store personal data

We generally store personal data on servers located inside the European Economic Area. However, in certain cases it may be necessary for us to transfer certain data to servers located outside of the EU. It is important to be aware that, though the privacy protections in certain jurisdictions may not be equivalent to those in Europe, the present EU data and privacy legislation requires that any personal data transferred to another jurisdiction outside of the EU shall be protected with the same security as inside of the EU jurisdiction. We will only transfer your data outside the EEA where permitted by law and ensuring that it is subject to appropriate protections, as well as your clear consent before any undertaking of cross-border transfer is performed.

Data Retention

We retain personal data for a range of periods as set out in our Data Retention Policy but for no longer than is necessary.

Third parties and security

The site may contain links to third-party websites and refers to third-party service providers and other entities.

You should ensure that you have read and understood any relevant policies.
Although we do our best to ensure the security of personal data provided to us (and to use only reputable service providers), any transmission of data via the Internet is by its nature insecure and we cannot guarantee the security of any personal data you provide to us..
