Sharing your data
When we provide services to you, we share your personal data with our vendors and third-party service providers, for instance, for payments processing or to organise video-conferencing. When we do so, we ensure having entered into Data Processing Agreements with our service providers, which means that they can only process your personal data in accordance with our instructions and they will not be able to use it for their own purposes.
Personal data may also be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials for the prevention or detection of crime, if required by law or if required for a legal or contractual claim.
We have taken appropriate steps to ensure that personal data processed outside the UK has an essentially equivalent level of protection as it has within the UK.
How long we keep your data
We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to provide you with our services and for a reasonable period thereafter to enable us to meet our contractual and legal obligations and to deal with complaints and claims.
At the end of the retention period, your personal data will be securely deleted or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data, so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.
