The following list shows some of the technical and organisational measures we put in place to ensure the safety and integrity of your data.

• Where possible, we use two factor authentication for key systems
• We ensure passwords are changed regularly on our systems
• We don’t use systems aimed purely at consumers, such as Gmail personal, Dropbox personal and Hotmail
• We ensure we encrypt all our hardware that will store personal information, using industry standard encryption methods

Standard personal information – Legitimate Interests
The law requires us to our balance the processing of your Standard personal data against your interests, rights and freedoms. We conduct a legitimate interests assessment to ensure we ensure the Standard personal data we process does not override your interests, rights or freedom.

Generally, we store your personal information on secure systems that reside within the EEA. Where we store systems that are outside of the EEA, we will ensure that there are suitable contractual or other safeguards in place to protect your data.
These measures may include data controller (us) to data processor contracts who we have checked have the required data protection law compliance, or ensuring your data is transmitted from the EEA to other global areas in a highly encrypted format, that is then stored on secure systems using “zero knowledge’ encryption. This means your data cannot be decrypted by a data processor.
How long we process your personal information for
We will process your personal information, for the duration of our business relationship. If you decide that you wish to terminate our business relationship, and you will not require our services in the future, then the lawful basis for processing will no longer apply.
