2. What we do with your personal information
We need to collect and use lots of information about you so that you we can respond to your message submitted on our ‘Contact Us’ form and to provide you with information in relation to our services.
We need to collect and use information about you but we will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. This will always be for one of these reasons (our lawful basis):
Contract - This is where we need to use your personal information for a contract reason (to comply with a contract with you, or take steps you have requested to start a contract with you).
Legal obligation -This is where we must use your personal information to comply with the law, or a binding request like a court order.
Consent - This is where we use your personal information with your clear consent, you have a complete free choice to say yes or no, and you can change your mind at any time.
Public interest - This is where we need to use your personal information for an official purpose, or for a reason in the public interest for the greater public good, like cooperating voluntarily with an official police investigation.

We will not share the information you have provided with any third parties unless it is required to by law. If we decide to reorganise or sell all or most of our business, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer of the business but we will never sell your personal information to third parties for them to market their products to you.
4. How do we keep your personal information secure
Our people understand how important it is to keep your personal information safe and secure. We take steps online and in our office to keep systems and records secure. . This is to protect it against theft or other loss, being corrupted so we cannot use it properly or at all and to stop people who should not be able to see or use it from doing so.
5. How long we keep your information and why
We will only keep your personal information for a limited period of time. This period will depend on a number of reasons, but it is primarily to get in touch with you following your direct contact with us or to complete a contract for services.
Sometimes we must also keep your information by law, to deal with a regulator or where required by our insurers. We delete your personal information at your request where possible and we won’t keep it for longer than we should or need to for the provision of a service and for communicating with you. We will keep your personal information during the period that you are a client with us and then for as long as is necessary in connection with both our and your legal rights and obligations.
