Your personal data may be transferred to other countries when it is shared with our group entities. It is also possible that personal data we collect from you may be transferred, stored and/or processed outside the UK by our data processors. This is because the organisations we use to provide our services to you are located in other countries.
We have taken appropriate steps to ensure that where personal data processed outside the UK, it has an essentially equivalent level of protection as it has within the UK. We do this by ensuring that:
3.4.1. Your personal data is only processed in a country which the Secretary of State has confirmed has an adequate level of protection (an adequacy regulation) This includes the use of approved frameworks for the sharing of personal data, such as the UK Extension to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework; or

We keep the length of time that we hold your personal data for under continual review. These reviews take place on a 6 month basis.
3.6.2. At the end of the retention period, your personal data will be securely deleted or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data, so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

3.7.3 You can easily identify secure websites by looking at the address in the top of your browser which will begin https:// rather than http://.
3.8. Why should you provide us with personal data?
Providing your personal data to us may be a requirement of entering into your contract with us for the provision of goods and services. Your personal data belongs to you and it is your choice as to whether you provide us with your personal data. However, because we may require your personal data in order to perform our contractual obligations to you, please be aware that if you do not provide all of the personal data we request from you then we may not be able to perform to the level you expect under our contract with you. An example of this would be where we are unable to provide you with certain products or services as we do not have your full details, or where we cannot perform our contract with you at all because we rely on the personal data you provide in order to do so. Please see our terms and conditions for further details.
