Keeping your information secure
We will only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we are processing it, in line with our data retention policies, client requirements and data protection legislation. However, where possible, we will anonymise this data so that you cannot be identified. Where we do not need to continue to process your personal data, it will be securely destroyed.

- to protect our rights or the rights of any third party.
- to other parties where we identify serious concerns about your wellbeing which we consider to be life-threatening;

- to a country which has been approved by the European Union as having established an appropriate legal framework to protect your personal data; or
- if we have established appropriate safeguards, in compliance with legal requirements, which provide adequate protection for your personal data.
Any information that you provide will not be used for the purposes of profiling or making automated decisions about you.
