Children’s personal information
When we process children’s personal information, where required we will do so without their consent, or where required the consent of a parent or guardian. We will always have in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that children’s personal information is handled with due care.
Protecting your information

In general, unless still required in connection with the purpose for which it was collected and/or processed, we remove your personal information from our records six years after the date it was collected. However, if before that date your personal information is no longer required then it will be removed before this date.
These policies may be amended by us at any time and without notice, but will be posted on this page. You agree through your continued use of our websites, products or services after that date will constitute your consent and acceptance of the amendment. This page was last updated on 9th January 2019.
