Unless you ask us to do so sooner, we will delete all reference to data held about these individuals unless the law requires us to keep such data within our records. You can also choose to delete this data yourself at any time.
We will only process this personal data belonging to others, on your written instructions, unless the law requires us to do otherwise and we will only transfer personal data outside the European Economic Area the party receiving that personal data will treat it to the same standard as the laws dictate in the UK.
