This statement refers to the personal data you provide to us in the course of our engagements. We will process your personal data for the purpose of providing our services to you as agreed for the engagements, because this processing is necessary for us to fulfil our obligations under our contract with you. If you have given us consent, we may also use your contact information to market our services to you in the future. We will retain your personal information data for seven years because we believe we have a legal responsibility to retain it for this period.
Following this we will destroy the data unless we have a separate obligation to retain the data for a further period. The data will not be shared with any third party, except where we have a legal or professional duty to do so, or where we engage a third party to store data on our behalf within the European Economic Area (i.e. a cloud computing provider.) We will put in place and maintain adequate physical, procedural and electronic safeguards to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of the data stored by us and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that safeguards of an adequate standard are put in place by any third party engaged by us to store this data.
In accordance with GDPR, you have a right to access any personal data that we hold concerning you. You have a right to ask that your data is rectified where it is inaccurate, incomplete or not up to date. In certain circumstances you have the right to erasure of your personal data, to restrict the processing of your data, to object to the processing of your data, and to the portability of your data.
We seek to resolve directly all complaints about how we handle personal information. Please send your data protection queries to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
