5. Security of personal information

We recognise the need to ensure that personal information we collect remains secure. We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under our control.

6. Transmission of personal information outside the United Kingdom and the EEA

The information you provide to us may be given by us to connected persons in countries outside the United Kingdom and the European Economic Area (EEA) who may not always have equivalent data protection laws. However, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy and that it is kept secure.

Where we transfer personal information from inside the EEA to outside the EEA, we may be required to take specific additional measures to safeguard the relevant personal information.  Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal information to these jurisdictions. In countries which have not had these approvals (see the full list here), we will establish legal grounds justifying such transfer, such as EU Commission-approved model contractual clauses, or other legal grounds permitted by applicable legal requirements.

Please contact us as set out in Section 1 of this Privacy Policy if you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal information.

Our retention periods for personal data are based on business needs and legal requirements. We retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the information was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose. For example, we may retain certain transaction details and correspondence until the time limit for claims arising from the transaction has expired, or to comply with regulatory requirements regarding the retention of such information.
