Your personal data will be kept secure, accurate and up to date with appropriate technical and organisational methods used to ensure the integrity of the data we hold and to prevent it being accidentally lost, accessed or used in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

The time period that we will keep information will vary depending on what the information is used for. Unless there is a specific legal requirement to the contrary, we will keep information in a form which permits identification of data subjects only for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which we process it.

We will continue to hold information about you if you terminate our services. This information will only be held for such periods as is necessary for the purpose of dealing with enquiries, complying with any legal obligation and for crime and fraud prevention and detection.
