How is your information used?
We may use your information to:

We have to have a legal basis for holding and using your information.

Where we use your information to keep you informed about our Company and our products, we believe that this is in our legitimate interests. We are careful to ensure that neither the frequency nor the content of the information we send to you will harm your data security or your privacy rights and you will always have a clear and easy to follow option to unsubscribe from further messages.
We only obtain, use and retain personal information that is relevant to the purpose that we require it. We will delete your information when you ask us to or when we no longer have a need to retain it. We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties, or share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
How you can access and update your information
The accuracy of your information is important to us. We’re working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that we hold about you.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
