When we use third-party service providers, we only disclose to them any personal information that is necessary for them to provide their service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it other than in accordance with our specific instructions.

Third parties who provide products and services
We work closely with various third parties to bring you a range of products and services which are complimentary to ours.
When you enquire about or purchase one or more of these products or services through us, the relevant third-party may use your details to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from any contracts you have entered into with them.
These third-party product providers may share your information with us which we will use in accordance with this policy. In some cases, they will be acting as a controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their privacy policy.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EEA
 

All information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By way of example, this may happen where any of our group companies are incorporated in a country outside of the EEA or if any of our servers or those of our third-party service providers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK.
 
If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this policy. These steps include imposing contractual obligations on the recipient of your personal information or ensuring that the recipients are subscribed to international policies that aim to ensure that personal data is processed, handled and stored securely.


HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR
 

If we collect your personal information, the length of time we retain it is determined by a number of factors including the purpose for which we use that information and our obligations under other laws.
 
We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary to perform our business obligations.

We may need your personal information to establish, bring or defend legal claims, in which case we will retain your personal information for 7 years after the last occasion on which we have used your personal information in one of the ways specified in 'How we use your personal information'.
 
The only exceptions to this are where:

  • the law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner.
  • you exercise your right to have the information erased and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted in this section, or because we are required under the law as specified in 'Erasing your personal information or restricting its processing'.
