The type of personal information we collect ​

We currently collect and process the following information:

  • Contact details (phone number, email address)

How we get the personal information and why we have it

Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:

We use the information that you have given us in order to:
  • Fulfil the contractual agreement and schedule of services

How we store your personal information 

Your information is securely stored digitally on a cloud hosted system (Microsoft Azure) located either UK South or UK West.

We keep all personal information (i.e. name, email address and phone number) for the duration of any contractual agreement, and for up to 2 years after the termination of a contract. We will then dispose of your information, by deleting all digital records.
