Under data protection law, we can only use your Personal Information if we have a proper reason for doing so. In order to use your Personal Information, we rely on the following legal bases:
- processing is necessary for the performance of the products and/or services we provide to you (including preventing unauthorised access and modification to our systems);

We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.
We may also need to share some Personal Information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a re-structuring. Usually, information will be anonymised but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.
We will not share your Personal Information with any other third party.
- How long your personal information will be kept
We will keep your Personal Information while you have an account with us or we are providing products and/or services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your Personal Information for as long as is necessary:

We will not retain your Personal Information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. Different retention periods apply for different types of Personal Information. Further details on this are available on request using the contact details set out below.
When it is no longer necessary to retain your Personal Information, we will delete or anonymise it.
- Transferring your personal information out of the EEA
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your Personal Information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), for example with our service providers located outside the EEA.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.
These non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all Personal Information will be secure.
If you would like further information regarding the mechanisms used to comply with data protection law, please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
