Information Creation, Storage, Retention and Destruction

we may summarise, record and store information about our communications with you.
we may compose and send correspondence and reports etc. to you and maintain a copy (in paper or electronic form) for our records.
we will retain such information as long as we are in business and to meet any legal, professional or insurance requirement. which ever is the longest.
If you wish to terminate the relationship and tell us in writing, then we will destroy any records excepting those we must maintain for legal requirements or to meet the requirements of the professional bodies that we belong to, or to meet the requirements of our insurers. Typically, such information will be retained for about 6 years.
If we dispose of any equipment containing data then we will either physically destroy the magnetic media or we will write dummy data over the whole of the media. If we dispose of any documents containing personal or company confidential information then we will destroy them by shredding or incineration.
Data and Processing Location

You should not therefore use the internet to send highly sensitive data such as credit card or bank account details, or company trade or financial information, or sensitive personal information. For these we recommend the use of the fax or letter.
