The transfer of information such as personal data is necessary to provide you with your requested service, and to the extent permitted by law, your submission of this information to us constitutes your consent for this transfer.

We typically will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, payment or reporting requirements, or to fulfil an order you have made on our website. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements. 

Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data can be requested by contacting us at
