To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Third party software/platforms that enable us to operate effectively and efficiently (below listed are the main ones we use) :
To deliver our products and services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to transfer your data outside of the UK and the European Economic Area (EEA), including countries that may not have the same level of protection for personal information. This will typically occur when we use service providers located outside the UK and EEA or when our employees based overseas (e.g. in Singapore) support UK business. When we do this, we’ll ensure that your data is accorded an appropriate level of protection and that the transfer is in line with applicable legal requirements. For example, our employees are bound by the contractual obligations stated in their employment contract, and we incorporate appropriate contractual terms in agreements with our third-party service providers. We will continue to always take additional steps to make sure that your personal data is treated in line with strict standards set by the UK data protection laws.
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a subject access request (SAR). All subject access requests should be made as per the information in Part 14.

We may refuse access requests if it is unjustified or excessive, and where large volumes of information about a data subject is processed, we may request you to be specific with the kind of information sought.
