We update these physical and technical security processes and procedures from time to time to address new and emerging security threats that you become aware of.
Do we retain your personal information?
Yes. We normally retain your personal information for a period of at least 5 years from the date on which (i) we collect the information; or (ii) our relationship ends (whichever occurs last), however your personal data will not be kept longer than required.

In certain cases we may charge you an administration fee for providing you with access to the information you have asked for, but we will inform you of this before proceeding. There may be cases where we are unable to provide the information you request, such as where it would interfere with the privacy of others or result in a breach of confidentiality.
