We collect personal information from you directly through our website, over the phone, through email and sometimes paper.
We will only keep personal information for as long as we have a valid reason for keeping it. After that, we delete or dispose of the information securely. We have also put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
Any personal information or data collected as part of our work with a client is kept secure and separate from other clients and Elrick & Co’s own records. The client’s own privacy policies will detail how they manage personal information or data collected.
