The categories of personal data are the following:

  • The office building itself is locked when not attended, and the building has an industry-recognised certified alarm system which is subject to regular testing and maintenance
  • Where data is stored electronically, it is held on designated computers or a central computer network system. Access to certain areas on the network is restricted to be available to management and relevant staff only, and all designated computers, and those from which the network is available, are strictly password controlled.


We never, under any circumstances, sell personal data that we hold. However, where it is necessary and applicable (and it complies with data protection legislation), or is legally required, we may share personal information about you with:

  • Your family or representatives
  • Your solicitors and other professional advisers
  • Our auditors, lawyers and insurers
  • Police forces, courts and tribunals
  • Central and local government

We have not in the past had cause to transfer personal data to another country, but should the need arise, we will do so in accordance with data protection legislation.


How to access personal information held about you

Individuals have a right to make a subject access request to gain access to personal information that any organisation holds about them.

If you make a subject access request of us in respect of any information we hold about you, we will:

  • Give you a description of it
  • Tell you why we are holding and processing it, and how long we will keep it for
  • Explain where we got it from, if not from you
  • Tell you who it has been, or will be, shared with
  • Give you a copy of the information in an intelligible form

If you would like to make a subject access request, please contact us.

There is no charge to provide this information, except in exceptional circumstances (for example, if the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, or if you request further copies of the data already supplied; in these cases the charge will be based on the administrative costs incurred).

Your other rights regarding your data

Under data protection legislation, individuals have certain rights regarding how their personal data is used and kept safe. You have the right to:

  • Object to the use of your personal data if it would cause, or is causing, damage or distress
  • Prevent your data being used for direct marketing
  • Object to the use of your personal data for decisions being taken by automated means (by a computer or machine, rather than by a person)
  • In certain circumstances, have inaccurate personal data corrected, deleted or destroyed, or restrict its processing
  • Claim compensation for damages caused by a proven breach of the data protection regulations

You may also have the right for your personal information to be transmitted electronically to another organisation in certain circumstances.

If you require your record to be removed or amended, please contact us via the contact details on our website.


The length of time we retain information on potential customers who have enquired via our website is until such time as that interest results in them becoming a customer or when customers/contacts ask to be removed from our records. However, we may also remove records as the result of an internal audit where it is apparent that no contact has been received for some time, when we will assume that there is no further interest.

Notwithstanding the above timescales, you are at liberty to ask us to delete your information at any time (see Section 7 above). If there are any consequences arising from your doing so, we will explain this at the time.

Any information that we are requested to remove, or that which is no longer required, is disposed of securely (ie, shredded or permanently deleted from computer systems).
