We share your data within the group of companies that we work with. Where this involves the transfer of personal data outside the EEA, We ensure that personal data is protected by requiring all companies within the group to follow the same rules with respect to personal data usage.

There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover Our administrative costs in responding.
