7. STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
7.2 We follow strict security procedures as to how your personal information is stored and used, and who sees it, to help stop any unauthorised person getting hold of it. All personal information you register on our Websites will be located behind a firewall. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data. So we cannot accept any liability for the loss, theft or misuse of the personal information which you have registered on our Websites if there is a security breach.
7.3 We will keep your information stored on our systems for as long as it takes to provide the services to you and for a limited period afterwards for legal and tax purposes. The third parties we engage to provide services on our behalf will keep your data stored on their systems for as long as is necessary to provide the services to you. We will not store your information for longer than is reasonably necessary or required by law.
8. YOUR RIGHTS

8.2 The Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

You are entitled to be told by us whether we or someone else on our behalf is processing your personal information; what personal information we hold; details of the purposes for the processing of your personal information; and details of any third party with whom your personal information has been shared. In the event that an access request is unfounded, excessive or especially repetitive, we may charge a 'reasonable fee' for meeting that request. Similarly, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with requests for further copies of the same information (that fee will be based upon the administrative costs of providing the information). Sometimes you may be asked to provide proof of identity before we show you your personal information - that's so we can prevent unauthorised access. Your rights to access, rectify such information, object or cancel the information we hold about you can be exercised at any time by contacting us at email@example.com
