How we keep information safe

We take data security seriously and have achieved and maintain ‘Cyber Essentials’ certification. This means we have implemented robust measures and procedures to secure personal data and protect it from loss or unauthorised disclosure or damage.
Our website uses SSL to help protect (encrypt) any data provided using our site, for example when submitting information through a web form.

We are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to us over networks that we do not control, such as the Internet and wireless networks.

How long we keep the information we collect

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
