We do this by entering into data sharing agreements with the recipients of your personal information based outside the UK and EEA which comply with the EU Commission’s standard clauses or the UK’s international data transfer agreement for the transfer of personal information.

In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties (see above) who have a business need-to-know.
We have put procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you, if we have your contact details, and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose personal information to you.
