Privacy policy – How long we hold your data

We will only hold your data for as long as we need it for the purpose that we are using it for.

In certain circumstances, you can ask us to stop using your data earlier. You can find more information about your rights below, alternatively, you can contact us at any time using the contact details at the top of this page.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of personal data, the purposes for which we process information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. 

We will take all reasonable steps to destroy, or erase from our systems, all data which is no longer required (or, where we are processing on behalf of another data controller, return their information to them).

We may sometimes anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
