No one, unless you request that I do so in writing, or my business is closed by HMRC for audit.

How do we store your data?

Our Company securely stores your data at the following places: [enter the location and describe security precautions taken].

  • WordPress. This is my website host. It is password-protected and has SSL-certification (https) to provide an additional layer of security.

Unless otherwise stated, I do not delete your personal information as I often work with clients multiples times. However, if you wish you information to be removed please get in touch via the contact details below, and, as long as I am compliant with HMRC’s tax policy, I will be happy to accommodate your request.
