People who email us

We will monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send is within the bounds of the law.

People who make a complaint to us

When we receive a complaint from a person we formally record the details of the complaint. This normally contains the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint.

We only use the personal information we collect to process the complaint and to check on the level of service we provide.

We usually have to disclose the complainants' identity to whomever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the nature of a person's conduct is in dispute. If a complainant doesn't want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anomynous basis.

We will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with our retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for two years from closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the "need to know" principle.

Similarly, where enquiries are submitted to us we will only use the information supplied to us to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues and to check on the level of service we provide.

Use of Data Processors

Data Processors are third parties who may provide elements of our service for us. We have contracts in place with our data processors. This means they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation apart from us, unless to carry out the duty they are contracted to do. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct, or which is required by law. 

For the purposes of providing services to our clients, occasionally, third party contractors will be formally contracted by us and may act as Data Processors.

How and where do we store your data?
