5 SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
We will not share your information with any third parties for the purposes of direct marketing.
We use data processors who are third parties who provide elements of services for us. These include organisations that provide our IT infrastructure, and manage the provision of goods and services to us.
We have contracts in place with our data processors. This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation apart from us. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct.
Where we contract with third parties for the processing of your data, these may be located outside the EU (e.g. in the USA). When this is the case, we ensure the contracts we have in place with those third parties meet the requirements of data protection law.
6 YOUR RIGHT TO COMPLAIN
We work to high standards when it comes to processing your personal information.
If you remain dissatisfied, you can make a complaint about the way we process your personal information to the ICO as the UK supervisory authority. Please follow this link to see how to do that.
