What data might we hold about you?
Any information which you choose to provide to us, such as passport and driving licence numbers (where available) that may be required to identify you. We may very occasionally also use the services of a credit rating agency who may record the search.

How might we use any data we obtain?

Is there anything I can do to help?
Yes. Avoid sending personal data such as National Insurance Number and bank account details by unsecured email.

Data is stored either in physical files in our offices in the traditional manner or in electronic form on our dedicated office servers. Archived files are usually stored electronically.
