STORING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination

and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal
data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not
want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as
you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our
use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used,
machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which
you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a
contract with you.

data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you
withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain
products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw
