Transfer of data outside the European Economic Area

Data protection legislation is harmonised throughout the European Economic Area (EEA), which comprises the EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Countries outside the EEA do not generally have the same level of protection for personal information as those within the EEA.

Because of the way the Internet works, it is possible that the information you provide to us could be routed via countries outside the EEA. However, this is not considered a ‘transfer’ under data protection legislation and unless you are from outside the EEA, we will not transfer any information we collect from you outside the EEA without your permission or as permitted by law (including where it is necessary to perform our contractual obligations toward you).

Data retention and security

We will keep a record of your personal information for no longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws and general recordkeeping best practice, and in any case not for longer than 10 years after the date on which such information was provided.

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorised access and unauthorised changes, sharing or destruction of your personal information. These security measures include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices, and security measures, as well as physical and technical security measures to guard against unauthorised access to systems where we store personal data.
