- To meet our contractual commitments to you.
Data that is provided to us is stored on secure servers, protected by software developed by some really clever people - So don’t worry, you are in safe hands.
Sadly information via the internet can never be completely secure which unfortunately means we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically. As hard as we try to protect your information, the internet is a shady place. Therefore any information you share with us must be entirely at your own risk.
We pledge that we will only use your personal information in line with the preferences you have shared with us, to provide you with information relating to our services.
When you kindly share your private information with us, we will maintain your information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
