Protecting your data
Stewardship of your personal data is critical to us and a responsibility we embrace. We have a team dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities.
We only process personal data with a legal basis for doing so. We review the personal data we hold regularly to ensure it is being lawfully processed and that it is accurate, relevant, and up to date. Before transferring personal data to any third party (e.g. suppliers, partners, customers, software solution providers, and back office support), we establish that there is a legal reason for making the transfer, which may include your consent.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. We have implemented measures and procedures that adequately protect the privacy of individuals and ensure that data protection is integral to all processing activities. This includes implementing measures such as:
Data minimization (e.g. not keeping data for longer than is necessary);
Cyber security; and
A data security policy.
