Please be aware, in such circumstances, we will not require any further consent to share your data with the parties involved.
HOW DO YOU SECURE MY DATA?
Data security is of great importance to us, and to protect your data, we have put in place a variety of measures to safeguard the data we collect from you. This includes the following:
- Only keeping your data for as long as we need to and for as long as we have your permission to keep it.
- Password protecting all data that we hold about you.
- Using two-step authentication to access the backend data held on this website.
- Passcode protecting all mobiles devices.
- Password protecting all computers and laptops.
- Using two-step authentication on all mobile devices, computers and laptops.
- Adding the facility to remotely erase all content on a device in the event of a theft as soon as the device connects to the internet.
- Encrypting all data on our local devices.
- Encrypting all data on our file servers.
- Encrypting all backup data that we hold.

Please be aware, like on most websites, the data stored on our web server is currently in an identifiable fashion, a limitation of the content management system that this website is built on. In the future, we aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual. Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as we are able to.
If you would like more information about the measures that we take to protect your data, please feel free to ask for a copy of our ‘Data Protection Policy’ by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHY DO YOU USE THIRD PARTIES?
We use some third parties because they are able to perform the services that we require more effectively and more securely than ourselves.
ARE THE THIRD PARTIES SECURE?
All of the third parties that we use have been carefully chosen and all of them are based in the USA and are EU-U.S Privacy Shield compliant. If you would like more details about our third parties security arrangements, you can review their privacy policies by pressing the links below.
