It is in our legitimate interest to do so
You have given your consent (this can be withdrawn at any time by advising our Data Protection Contact (see below) but does not affect the fact that we will continue to hold your personal details for any or all of the other three categories). Withdrawal of consent may mean that we can no longer do certain things for you.
What do we use your data for?

Anyone where disclosure is made with your consent or at your request.
Data stored in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
We may from time to time transfer your personal data to a country outside the EEA. This most likely reason for this is that some of our systems store data in the Cloud.
Normally this will be necessary for the performance of your contract with us. Sometimes we may transfer for other reasons.
Should a transfer occur we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place at all times. This will include imposing contractual obligations upon the recipient to subscribe to an accepted framework of data protection.
How long do we retain your data?
We will normally keep your data throughout the period of time that we do work for you or you work for us. Afterwards data is normally retained for as long as required to meet our legal obligations and our accounting requirements.
We will use our best endeavours to ensure that your data is kept safe. In the event of a security breach
we will liaise with and report to the Information Commissioners Office and other regulatory bodies as appropriate to try and ensure that the effects of any breach are kept to a minimum.
