- Fulfil the contract of services between us and our clients;

What We Do With Your Data
We may need to share your information with certain third parties, however we will only do this where it is necessary to administer the relationship between us. These may include suppliers or associates to perform certain functions on our behalf, or if required or permitted by law.
In all cases we require our third-party providers to take commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to safeguard your information. They are only permitted to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with instructions.
We will not:
- Sell or rent your data to third parties
- Share your data with third parties for marketing purposes
We will share your data if we are required to do so by law – for example, by court order, or to prevent fraud or other crime.
How Long We Keep Your Data
We only retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is collected. In some cases, we may anonymise your personal data (so it can no longer identify you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
We may need your personal information to establish, bring or defend legal claims. For this purpose, we will always retain your personal information for 7 years after the date it is no longer needed by us for any of the purposes listed under purposes for which we may use your information above. The only exceptions to this are where:
- The law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner;
- You exercise your right to have the information erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under the law;
- We bring or defend a legal claim or other proceedings during the period we retain your personal information, in which case we will retain your personal information until those proceedings have concluded and no further appeals are possible; or
- In limited cases, existing or future law or a court or regulator requires us to keep your personal information for a longer or shorter period.
Where Your Data is Processed and Stored
We design, build and run our systems to make sure that your data is as safe as possible at all stages, both while it is processed and when it is stored.
Digital data that we collect from you will be stored on our servers or those of our service providers. Some of the information you provide to us may be transferred outside the UK. We also work with suppliers and partners who may make use of cloud and/or hosted technologies.
