Where do we store your information and for how long do we keep it?
Your personal information is retained by us on our website’s content management system. Our data retention periods vary depending on the nature and context of the personal information that we have in our care and are calculated taking into account the following factors:
guidance from official bodies such as the ICO;
how long we need to keep the information to fulfil the original purpose for which it was collected; and
legal obligations to which we are subject.
Who do we share your information with?
Your personal information is shared only with our IT service provider and our website provider.
Sending data outside the EEA
This section tells you about the safeguards that keep your personal information safe and private, if sent outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Your personal data may, during the course of some our data processing, be transferred outside of the EEA. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA. When we do this, all appropriate technical and legal safeguards are put in place to ensure you are afforded the same level of protection as within the EEA.
You have a number of rights under data protection law in relation to the way that we process your personal data. You may contact us using the contact details above to exercise any of these rights and we will respond to any request received from you within one month from the date of request.
If you are not satisfied with the way that we have treated your data or responded to a rights request, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the UK regulator for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
