You can contact us for further details of applicable retention periods.
After the retention period, your personal information will either be securely deleted or de-identified and it may be used for analytical purposes.
Under Data Protection Act 1988 and GDPR you have the right to ask for a copy of any of your personal information held by us (where such data is held). This is free, provided that your requests are not “manifestly unfounded or excessive” (for example, repetitive).

We review our security procedures at regular intervals to highlight areas for improvement. Only authorised staff members have any access to user information, and our database is hosted securely.
