How do we protect your information?
You're in safe hands. We protect your information in various technical, organisational and contractual ways:
we use technical security measures (for example, end-to-end encryption or multi-factor authentication), and
we take steps to make sure that only people who need to use your data have access to it, and that our staff understand how use personal data responsibly and keep it safe.

We work to avoid personal data breaches, but we are prepared if a breach does happen. We will notify you, and any applicable regulator, of a breach if we are legally required to (if it's higher risk breach, we might need to notify, but if it's a lower risk breach, we may not need to tell you).

for up to six years after that to identify any issues and resolve any legal proceedings.
We may keep your personal information for longer:
if you complain (so we keep our complaint records for long enough),
if we know about pending or current legal proceedings, or reasonably believe there is a chance of legal proceedings,
in some circumstances, if applicable law says we are required to.
