Cookie Policy:

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files containing information sent by a web server to a web browser and stored on your computer, tablet or mobile phone when you visit certain web pages. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. Our website uses necessary cookies to optimise the functionality of the site and non-essential cookies to distinguish between humans and bots and obtain analytical data. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. If you click through to another website from our website that third party website may also use cookies. We recommend you check the third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them. Where our website contains links to other websites this privacy policy will not apply to those third-party websites. When you link through to another website you should read the privacy policy which applies to that website. To learn more about cookies please see www.aboutcookies.org.uk.

How we store your information: 

Your information is securely stored on password protected hardware and in a secure filing room. We keep personal data for only as long as necessary. In most cases, our retention period will come to an end 6 years after the end of your relationship with us but we review personal data we hold every two years to establish if it is still necessary for us to store and that the information we hold is accurate. In some cases, we are required to keep personal data for longer to comply with our legal obligations. When we no longer need your personal data or have a legal obligation to store the data, we will dispose of your information by deleting it from all our systems and securely disposing of paper files.

Our website is hosted by Krystal and information that we collect is stored on a google hosted email. This is necessary to process the information and send you any information you have requested. These service providers have very strong control environments and have appropriate controls to ensure adherence to the GDPR. However, given our size and the services we consume we have no real control over where this information is stored, and it may be situated outside the European Union.
