This notice applies across all websites, applications and services that we own and operate. For the purpose of this notice, we will refer to these as our ‘services’. When we say ‘personal data’ we mean identifiable information about you, like your name, email, address, support queries, feedback and so on. If you can’t be identified (for example, when personal data has been aggregated and anonymised) then this notice doesn’t apply.

Information we collect automatically: We collect some information about you automatically when you visit our websites or use our services, like your IP address and what type of device you are using. We also collect information about how you navigate through our websites or services such as what pages you use and what links you click on. This information helps us to understand how our services are performing and enable us to develop them to provide the best user experience for you.

If we don’t collect your personal data, we may be unable to provide you with all our services, for example we cannot invite you to an event if we don’t have your details.

Security

Security is a priority for us when it comes to your personal data. We’re committed to protecting your personal data and have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to make sure that happens.

The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it. We’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it. Following that period or upon your request, we’ll make sure it’s deleted or anonymised.
