- we make sure that when we ask another organisation to provide a service for us, they have appropriate security measures.
We will make sure it is clear when you can make these choices, for example, we have boxes you need to tick if you want to receive marketing and you can change your preferences if you no longer want to receive it. However, we may email you occasionally directly with information or questions about your account, pending purchases, purchases, for example, with reminders, warnings or copyright requests.

We will use personal information only for the purposes for which it was originally collected and we will make sure we delete it securely.
