We will keep your personal data only for as long as required to achieve the purposes for which it was collected, in line with this privacy notice.

  • Until the goods and/or services we have provided are no longer in active use.
  • Until it has been requested that we no longer process the data and that it is erased; in some cases, where there is a remaining relevant or legal reason why we are required to keep this data, we may opt to restrict the amount of processing being conducted to what is absolute necessary rather than erase it.
