Managing your information

We do not pass any information we collect to anyone else for any purpose with the following exceptions:
– for employees, any data required to fulfil the payroll process is passed to our payroll
  where legally obliged to do so

We undertake impact assessments for any new information streams or processing methods.

We normally store most information electronically in our computer system, which has encryption, anti-virus and malware protection measures, and back-up facilities. Some information is stored remotely in the cloud.

Some employee information is additionally stored securely in paper format.

We will normally archive ex-employee information after one year and destroy this information after six years unless we are legally obliged to retain it.

Transactions using bank information

Where we receive payments via a debit or credit card, we use a secure payment service, Worldpay, so that all your data is protected by their systems. We are obliged to undertake regular monitoring to comply with the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) system run by banks and payment processors to ensure this.


We are committed to ensuring that the information you give us is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures that safeguard and secure any information we collect on-line.

As keeping information about you secure is important to us, the website uses SSL encryption, or a comparable standard, for data transmission.

If we become aware of a data breach we will inform the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and also notify anyone we believe may have been affected.
