They also provide IT support and server backup, aligning with our legitimate interests.

If we engage in the sale or acquisition of any business or assets, we will reveal your personal data to the potential seller or buyer of said business or assets. This disclosure is necessary to facilitate the transaction's completion and aligns with our legitimate interests;

Where we store your personal data and international transfers of your data
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area("EEA")which has not been confirmed as having adequate levels of protection for personal data and which does not benefit from an adequacy decision issued by the European Commission. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy including ensuring that the transfer is made subject to appropriate safeguards including the use of standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission. 

Regrettably, the internet's data transmission is not entirely foolproof. While we will make every effort to safeguard your personal data, we cannot assure the absolute security of the data you transmit to our website. Transmission is undertaken at your discretion. Following the reception of your data, we will implement rigorous procedures and security measures to mitigate the risk of unauthorised access.
Retaining and deleting personal data
We are committed to managing personal data, ensuring that it is not retained beyond the necessary duration for the intended purpose. As specified in section 1, your personal data will be stored and eventually removed from our systems after a period of five years from the last interaction, query, or contractual relationship with you. This timeframe aligns with our legitimate business interest, as we believe it is the appropriate period for data retention, beyond which the data becomes irrelevant and is therefore deleted. In addition to the aforementioned, we may keep your personal data if such preservation is required to fulfil our legal obligations.
