We will process your data if we feel it is required to protect your vital interests, or the vital interests of another person. This might occur in serious life or death situations where immediate disclosure of personal data is required. We have documented our justification for processing your data on this basis.
We have determined the following purpose and legal basis for our data processing:

Data recipients and data transfers
We do not sell any of your personal data to any third party. If required, we share personal data with service providers such as our accountants and insurance companies.
Where required we will disclose your personal data with law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies.

The data we collect directly from you is the minimum we require to facilitate the lawful processing described above. Personally Identifiable Data placed on our system will be deleted in accordance with any legal obligations and / or within the terms of our retention policy to ensure personal data is held only for as long as is required for the purpose we collected it.
Generally, personal data required for financial transaction and audit purposes, including reporting to the HMRC will be retained for 6 years plus the current year it is collected.
Personal data collected for the purposes of engaging with suppliers will be maintained for the duration of the commercial relationship and for a further 7 years thereafter.
