Use of your Personal Information
We use information you provided us as required to carry out our obligations under contracts between us, to communicate with you in order to provide you with information about our products and services, to enable us to operate our business and to pursue our legitimate interests where these are not outweighed by your applicable data protection rights and to comply with applicable laws and/or to protect our legal rights.
Disclosure of your Personal Information
Retention of your Personal Information
We will keep this information for the duration of our business relationship and to the extent permitted or required under applicable law, after termination of the business relationship.

In other cases, we may retain an encrypted version of your contact information for an appropriate period after the business relationship ends to comply with its legal obligations, to meet regulatory requirements or to protect itself from legal claims.
In relation to other personal information collected, we require this to be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was collected ceases, or the information is no longer needed for that purpose.
Security of your Personal Information
Your Data Protection Rights
