Who we share your data with

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential, and will only be shared with data processors necessary for the running of our business, for example our CRM provider and accounting provider.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
