I am ICO registered and GDPR compliant when handling your personal data. In order to offer my services, maintain my own accounts and records for tax purposes, I collect, process and store personal data and information only with which you have voluntarily given to me. I will never collect or process sensitive information about you without your explicit consent. My website is used for informational purposes only and to promote my professional services. My website does not use cookie and no data about you is collected. I do not maintain any mailing lists and will never ask you to opt-in to any such distribution services. I sometimes need to share your personal information with other organisations, but never without explicitly requesting your consent prior to this. However, I may share personal data with third parties within the provision of my services if I am required to do so by UK law and cannot accept responsibility for any processing carried out by any third party which is outside my remit. I do not make cross-border transfers. Your Personal Data will be retained only for as long as required for the purposes for which these have been collected or for as long is required by law. In order to protect the confidentiality and security of your Personal Data, I maintain adequate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards . Your information is protected from access by unauthorised persons, against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. Paper documents are stored in a locked office and I use a cross-cut shredder to dispose of any paper documents once services have been completed. Digital documents are stored on an encrypted drive, on a password-protected computer and backed up regularly on an external encrypted drive to avoid data loss. I do not store customer data in the cloud.
