If you choose to provide us with personal information it will be used in support of the intended purposes stated at the time at which it was collected, and subject to any preferences indicated by you.
We may use your information for a number of purposes which includes:
- Processing your instructions.

Controlling your Personal Information
Your information will be held by PWS and our service provider Technopoly™. Our employees will only have access to your information if they need it to provide our services.
We do not share this information with any third parties, except where we use data processors to act on our instructions to provide our services. We will not pass on details to any other data controller without your express prior consent unless we are required by law to do so.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small administration fee may be payable and of proof of identity will be required. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please contact us by any means provided on our contact page here.
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please email us at the address provided. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
How long do we keep your information?
To make sure we meet our legal data protection and privacy obligations, we only hold on to your information for as long as we actually need it for the purposes we acquired it for in the first place.
In most cases, this means we will keep your information for as long as you continue to use our services, and for a reasonable period of time afterwards if you stop doing so, to see if we can persuade you to come back to us. After this period we will delete it other than where we are lawfully required to keep any data for audit or legal reasons.
Securing your personal information
This web application and its administrators constantly review and enhance their technical, physical and managerial procedures to protect your personal data from unauthorised access, accidental loss and/or destruction.
All data is transmitted using the latest stable encryption routines available to ensure the best possible security.
Communications, including email and FTP, are not secure unless they have been encrypted. No responsibility can be accepted for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control.
Monitoring and recording
Monitoring or recording of your calls, emails, text messages and other communications may take place in accordance with UK law, and in particular for business purposes, such as for quality control and training, to prevent unauthorised use of this web application, to ensure effective systems operation and in order to prevent or detect crime.
Right to be forgotten
At any time you may decide to have any of your personally identifiable information removed from our systems.
If you would like your personally identifiable information removed, please contact us by any means provided on our contact page here.
We will not be able to remove any transaction history that we are required to keep by law but where applicable the information will be made anonymous.
Please note that once this information has been removed, it will be non recoverable and therefore we would no longer be able to offer assistance or guidance in relation to any deleted information.
