The types of information we hold on our clients:
- Contact details: Names, email addresses, job titles, postal addresses and meeting notes are held in a secure database
- We also hold information about tenders we have made and these are kept in a secure database
- Banking details for our clients are held on our secure accounting system
We believe we have a legitimate interest in holding your contact information as defined in the GDPR legislation
