7.0 Security and Retention of Your Personal Data

We are committed to protecting your personal data. We have adopted robust and appropriate technologies, measures and policies, so the personal data we have about you is protected to the extent possible from unauthorized access and improper use. All personal data you provide to us is stored on secure servers of our third party service providers. 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 such personal data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

We will keep your personal data for only as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law. We will not keep more personal data than we need for those purposes. For further information about how long we will keep your personal data, please contact us directly at

9.0 Your Rights

You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you, and there are a number of ways you can control the way in which and what personal data we store and process about you. To exercise these rights and controls, please contact us directly at

Access: You have the right to ask for a copy of the personal data that we hold about you free of charge, however we may charge a ‘reasonable fee’, if we think that your request is excessive, to help us cover the costs of locating the personal data you have requested.

Correction: You may notify us of changes to your personal data if it is inaccurate or it needs to be updated.

Deletion: If you think that we shouldn’t be holding or processing your personal data any more, you may request that we delete it. Please note that this may not always be possible due to legal obligations.

Restrictions on use: You may request that we stop processing your personal data (other than storing it), if: (i) you contest the accuracy of it (until the accuracy is verified); (ii) you believe the processing is against the law; (iii) you believe that we no longer need your data for the purposes for which it was collected, but you still need your data to establish or defend a legal claim; or (iv) you object to the processing, and we are verifying whether our legitimate grounds to process your personal data, override your own rights.

Object: You have the right to object to processing, including: (i) for direct marketing; (ii) for research or statistical purposes; or (iii) where processing is based on legitimate interests.

Portability: If you wish to transfer your personal data to another organisation (and certain conditions are satisfied), you may ask us to do so, and we will send it directly if we have the technical means.

Withdrawal of consent: If you previously gave us your consent (by a clear affirmative action) to allow us to process your personal data for a particular purpose, but you no longer wish to consent to us doing so, you can contact us to let us know that you withdraw that consent.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We will respond to all data subject requests within one month of receipt. We may not be able to accommodate a request to change personal data if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the personal data to be incorrect.
