In some circumstances you have the right to ask us to delete your data. In some circumstances we will anonymise your Personal Information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
What If My Information Is Transferred To Foreign Countries?
We process and store your information in the United Kingdom. However, we and our service providers may transfer your Personal Information to, or store it in, other jurisdictions.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK.
We ensure your personal data is protected by requiring all our group companies to follow the same rules when processing your personal data.
