Data security and retention
We have what we believe are appropriate security controls in place to protect personal data. Your information is securely stored on our IT network. Risk assessment, including assessing risks to the rights and freedoms of data subjects are important internal processes.
We do not have any control over what happens between your device and the boundary of our information infrastructure. You should be aware of the many information security risks that exist and take appropriate steps to safeguard your own information. We accept no liability in respect of breaches that occur beyond our domain of control.
We will only keep your personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so. If you are a client then the information will be retained for a period to allow us to provide our services, to comply with any legal, tax or accounting requirements, and if necessary, for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.
When we no longer have any ongoing legitimate business need to store your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
