These interests include the operation of our business and promoting its success, and enabling us to fulfil contracts and exercise our legal rights. We may also use information on the basis of an individual’s consent, but when we ask for consent we will make clear what the consent relates to.

How we keep personal data safe:
We have in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, damaged or destroyed, altered or disclosed. This includes physical security measures (such as keeping paper files in secure, access-controlled premises) and electronic security technology (such as digital back-ups and anti-virus protection).
We limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to legal and contractual confidentiality obligations.
We normally only store personal data within the European Economic Area (EEA).
