We also limit access to your personal information to those employees and other staff who have a business need to have such access, and all such people are subject to a contractual duty of confidentiality. However, security risk is inherent in all internet and information technologies and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any actual or suspected data breach. In the event of any such breach, we have systems in place to work with applicable regulators. In certain circumstances, we may notify you of breaches affecting your personal information.

If we learn that we have collected personal information through the Service from a child under 16 without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian as required by law, we will delete it. We encourage parents or guardians with concerns to contact us.

Data retention

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we  collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any of our legal, accounting or reporting obligations.

To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We will never retain your personal information for longer than we are allowed under applicable law.

Applicable law may require or permit us to decline your request in certain circumstances. If we decline your request, we will tell you why, subject to legal restrictions.

Sending your information outside of the United Kingdom or European Economic Area
