Some of the Personal Data collected is essential to meet legal requirements and for control, protection and security purposes and as such is mandatory.

Countries in the European Economic Area ("EEA") are required to have a similar standard of protection of personal data under the DPA but this is not always the case in countries outside of the EEA, we will therefore use reasonable endeavours to ensure that our licensed subsidiary operations, offices and third party service providers outside of the EEA handle your Personal Data in accordance with the reciprocal legislative requirements of the DPA .

In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period.
