If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate our Website and communicate with you as necessary to provide our Website to you and for our legitimate interests, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving our Website, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.

We use appropriate technical, organisational and administrative measures to protect any personal information we process about visitors to our Website, for example anti- malware.

When we have no ongoing legitimate need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
