The right to restrict processing.  You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further.

Only key members of our personnel have access to personal information. Backups are run to prevent loss of information and our internet servers are housed in secure facilities.

It is advisable to close your browser when you have finished your user session to help ensure others do not access your personal information if you use a shared computer or a computer in a public place.

Information may be retained in countries outside of the European Economic Area, including the USA. We will ensure that any information transferred outside of the European Economic Area will be adequately protected. You agree to the transfer of your information.
