We use a variety of physical and technical measures to keep personal information safe and prevent unauthorised access to or use or disclosure of it. Electronic data and databases are stored on secure computer systems with control over access to information using both physical and electronic means.

The length of time for which we will retain your personal information will depend on the purposes for which we need to retain it. After we no longer need to retain your personal information, it will be deleted or securely destroyed.
