*Allow you to opt-out of any process that you previously consented to, at any time.

About our processes:
1) When working with our clients
When you accept our terms and use our services, we store your information and send correspondence to you or on your behalf as instructed by you. We will retain your data for 6 years (or a shorter period by agreement) in order to assist with an HM Revenue & Customs inquiry (section 34(1) Taxes Management Act 1970).
2) When working with third parties
When engaging with third parties for business purposes, we process contact details of people at those organisations as a legitimate interest. We will retain that information until deemed out of date or we receive a request to delete it.
3) When recruiting and employing people
When people apply for a job with us, we process information that is necessary for the recruitment process. For example, legal reasons (such as employment and money-laundering laws), for contract, and legitimate interest (such as understanding your skill-sets and employment history). If applicants are not successful, we delete their data after six months, unless there is business or legal justification for longer retention.
For employees, we process information necessary for their employment, for legal, contractual and legitimate interest (e.g. performance monitoring) reasons. We retain employment records for 7 years after termination of the contract and retain some data after that time for references or to support legal activities.
If you are unable to provide required data for our recruitment or employment purposes, we may be unable to employ you.
