These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.

From time to time we may provide your information to our customer service department for research and analysis purposes so that we can monitor and improve the services we provide. We or our agents and sub-contractors may contact you by post, email or telephone to ask you for your feedback and comments on our services.

How we protect your information

All personal data is stored securely in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (GDPR).

The internet is not a secure medium. We use the most up-to-date technologies to protect the information you give us. We also keep your information confidential.

Owing to the global nature of the internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy.

However, we have taken the steps outlined above to try to improve the security of your information.


How long we retain your information

Personal data will only be retained for as long as necessary for the purpose of processing. However, the retention periods can differ based on the purpose the data was provided, the
requirements of the business, and the lawful basis for processing.

Within our business activities there are some legal requirements which apply to the retention of personal data; the minimum retention period is 12 months and the maximum retention period is 7 years from the date the transaction concluded.

In the absence of any legal requirements, data is to be deleted when:

• the purpose for which it was provided is no longer valid; or
• the data subject has withdrawn consent; or
• the data is no longer up to date
