We may use the legitimate interest or consent legal basis for processing your data such as name and email address for marketing purposes, you will always retain the right to opt out of any marketing material. We will review your data every 12 months to determine whether it is necessary for us to continue retaining it for marketing purposes based on legitimate interest or contract; mainly that we may be able to provide our services to you based on changing commercial environments and interests. 


Data Retention
