We will only use data for the purposes set out in this privacy policy, for our technical, client and partner administration as well as to deliver any contractual service. We may use the data if required to do so by law and for legitimate grounds as a data officer.

We will ensure that the third party supplier has the appropriate safeguards to protect your data in line with the Data Protection Act 1998 and only processes data on our instructions.
