This section explains our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal information. Personal information that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes. We will retain documents (including electronic documents) containing personal data for our legitimate business interests or to the extent that we are required to do so by law;

  • if we believe that the documents may be relevant to any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings; and
  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).

The duration of data retention may vary, depending on whether we need to retain the data in order to deliver our services to you and meet our contractual obligations, and whether you have the ability to access and delete the data yourself. Where data is no longer legitimately required, we will make all reasonable efforts to delete it at the earliest opportunity. We may retain certain data for historical statistical purposes. In this case, the data will be limited to that which is relevant and anonymised.
