Security and retention of data 


Here at Belmont Sawyer, the security of your personal information is very important to us. Any information you provide us will be held securely and by the Data Protection Laws and we have implemented strong physical and electronic security guards. 

We do our utmost best to keep your data secure. However, we cannot give a guarantee that
impenetrable security measures are in place. 


The period for which we will keep your personal data will depend on the type of service you have requested from us. We will delete your data automatically after seven years or sooner if we don’t feel it’s necessary to keep. We may use the information to improve our services, inform our marketing strategy or if needed for a legal claim. 


Your personal information will not be normally disclosed to third-parties. In some circumstances, however, we may need to disclose your personal details to a third party, so that they can provide a service that you have requested. Please note that we will only work with third parties necessary to the completion of any services that you’ve requested from us and we only instruct third parties trusted to us based on their security procedure. 


Controlling information about you 


You have the right to ask us not to process your information for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data for the marketing purpose) or if we intend to disclose your information to any third parties. You also have the right to access the personal information we hold about you at any time free of charge. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact Micheala Sawyer if we do hold information about you, you can either ask us to correct any mistakes or request it to be permanently deleted from our records.
