Where identified as inaccurate or unnecessary, data is either rectified or destroyed in a secure manner.
Data retention periods may vary between operational activities, with the business providing consideration as to the length of time data is held for on a case by case basis.
Regarding storage, there are several ways in which your data may be stored:
• On computers. When utilising platforms to fulfil our operational requirements, third party solutions may be used to store the data, such as Dropbox.
• Hard copy, where hard copies of data are retained, they are kept in a secure and clean environment.
