This Privacy Policy sets out who we are, what information we might collect, and what we do with that information. It also explains what your rights are. This Privacy Policy informs you how we use, store, protect and disclose your personal information when it is in our hands. 

Because our business involves collecting and analysing personal information at the request of our clients (“Clients”), we only collect and process your information in accordance with their instructions, and we act as data processors for our Clients. We are required to comply with our Clients’ directions as to how they want us to use your information and the terms of any assurances they have given you about privacy, subject always to applicable laws. We may share your personal information with our Clients who have asked us to collect and process it. They have their own Privacy Polices that apply to your information once it is passed to them and they will provide you with a copy of their Privacy Policy. Whilst we will process such data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the ownership of such data vests in the Client.

Retention of your information
