Sometimes we require you to provide us with information for contractual or legal reasons.

We’ll normally let you know when information is required, and the consequences of failing to provide it. If you do not provide personal information when requested, you may not be able to use our services if that information is necessary to provide you with the service or if we are legally required to collect it.

How we protect your personal information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorised alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing of, the personal information in our possession. Our website is also SSL secure.

How we retain your personal information

We retain personal information regarding you or your use of our services for as long as your contract with us is active or for as long as needed to provide you with the services. We also retain personal information for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, for example, to comply with our legal obligations, to protect us in the event of disputes and to enforce our agreements and to protect our and others’ interests.

The precise periods for which we keep your personal information vary depending on the nature of the information and why we need it. Factors we consider in determining these periods include the minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made with respect to an agreement or other matter, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria. For example, the period we keep your telephone number is connected to how long your contract with us is active, while the period for which we keep your enquiry email is based on how long has passed since the last submission in the thread.

As some customers have a periodic time away from us, or come back to us after a contract becomes inactive, or register with us after a trial, we don’t immediately delete your personal information when your trial ends or you cancel all services. Instead, we keep your personal information for a reasonable period of time, so it will be there if you come back.

Please note that in the course of providing services, we collect and maintain aggregated, anonymized or de-personalised information which we may retain indefinitely.

Updates to this Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we make changes, we’ll update the ‘Effective Date’ at the top of the Privacy Policy. We encourage you to check back periodically to review this Privacy Policy for any changes since your last visit.
