How Long We Keep Your Personal Data

We do not share your data with anyone. Individual client data will never be passed to any third party. However, confidentiality may be broken if my own safety or that of you the client or other members of the public are at risk, or if I am required by law to do so.
How We Keep Your Personal Data Safe
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) software, which encrypts the information you input on our site. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You can further help to ensure your security by taking a few simple precautions. For instance, it is important to protect against unauthorised access to your computer and to any username and password, and be sure to sign off when you are finished using a shared computer.
For electronic newsletter purposes, we store your information via mailchimp who also have their own security measures in place and GDPR compliance.
