Where dealing with prospective customers or partners, we will store this information only for so long as we reasonably believe that the individual and/or his/her organization may be considered a business prospect, not to exceed one (1) year following the last communication received from that individual. If the individual and/or his/her organization becomes a customer or business partner, his/her Personal Information is treated as described above.

We may receive that information either directly or from third parties.

Who may we disclose your Personal Information to?
You agree that we may share your Personal Information with:
our business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you, for example we engage third parties to help deliver our services, to send you marketing and surveys and for data analysis;
other professional advisers (including accountants and lawyers) that assist us in carrying out our business activities;
police and other law enforcement agencies in connection with the prevention and detection of crime; and
third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Information in order to comply with any legal obligation or instructions of a regulatory body (including in connection with a court order), or in order to enforce or apply the terms of any agreements we have with or otherwise concerning you (including agreements between you and us) or to protect our rights, property or safety of our clients, employees or other third parties.
We may also disclose your Personal Information to other third parties, for example:
if we sell or buy any business or assets we may disclose your Personal Information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets; and
if we or substantially all our assets are acquired by a third party (or are subject to a reorganization within our corporate group), Personal Information held by us will be one of the transferred assets.

transferring Personal Information where the recipient is Privacy Shield certified in the USA.
Where your Personal Information is processed in connection with our operations in the EU, the GDPR provides you certain rights with respect to your Personal Information.
These rights may only apply in certain circumstances and are subject to certain exemptions. Please see the table below for a summary of your rights.
Summary of your rights
