You have the right to ask us not to contact you in this way. We will always provide a clear method for you to opt out.
You can also contact us directly at any time to tell us not to send you any future marketing material.

How long we keep your information
We will retain your data for a period of 5 years unless you tell us that you wish to be removed from our system
