Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it.
How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
We will not keep personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected.

As a general rule we will only store or transfer your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the GDPR.
Do You Share My Personal Data?
We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes, other than in the highly unlikely circumstance where we may be legally required to share certain personal data, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
