Disclosure to Third Parties
We will not disclose, sell or give away your personal information to third parties except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested service, or as required by law.
We will do everything we can to comply with the requirements of the UK Data Protection Act 1998, including ensuring compliance by our staff.
We have implemented various security measures to safeguard your information and we will use all reasonable efforts to maintain and improve such measures at all times.

We will retain your data for as long as the purpose for which the data was collected continues, and then, subject to legal or other regulatory requirements, it will be destroyed.
