How we protect your data
We do not collect any ‘sensitive’ information about you. Any data we collect is categorised as ‘personal’ data, for which we follow the relevant GDPR requirements.

We take the responsibility of storing your personal data very seriously. We take all relevant security measures to protect your data from being lost, stolen, altered, or misused. Any data we store about you will be held securely and encrypted. We perform regular software updates, information backups, and maintenance.
We do not keep data for longer than necessary, and you can opt out at any time.
If we make any changes to this policy that affect you, we will get in touch via email. If we need you to re-issue consent for new uses of your data, we will also be in touch, and you can opt-out at any time.

Any marketing email you receive will contain a clear ‘unsubscribe’ link. Please use this should you no longer wish to receive emails from us.
