need to know your personal data, and we use appropriate password protection and appropriate strong encryption electronic measures within our electronic data management systems. However, unfortunately, because of the nature of electronic storage, we cannot promise that
your personal data or any other data you provide to us will always remain secure. If there is a security breach, we will do all that we can as soon as we can to stop the breach and minimise the loss of any data.

8. Marketing

Information Commissioner, see http://www.ico.org.uk or if you are based outside of the United Kingdom, please contact your local regulatory authority

information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
