How we store your personal information

Your information is securely stored.

We keep your personal information stored both digitally and in paper format. Digital data will be stored on our computer records and backed up to cloud storage and external back-up drives. Paper records will be stored in a locked cabinet. We will periodically (2x annually) cleanse our data and if twelve months have passed since the last direct interaction between us (i.e. email enquiries/communication, bookings etc – not newsletters) we will email you to advise that we will be deleting your details in 30 days unless we receive notification from you that you would like to be kept on our records and/or would like to receive the newsletter.

If you had only ever signed up for the newsletter, your data will remain in situ until we receive your notification to be removed (including as an option on every newsletter) or the business ceases to operate.

If opting to have your data removed, we will dispose your information by deleting the digital data from our records, back-ups and email/other digital communications as well as shredding any paper records.

The same process will be undertaken should the business cease to operate within three months of business closure.
