Any and all personal data captured will be in line with the GDPR and any UK data protection regulations.

(6) International data transfers
(7) Security of your personal information
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to:

We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.
(10) Third party websites
The website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites, however websites that provide a service for us (for example our proofing site), have been checked to ensure they are also GDPR compliant.
We may occasionally send images or files to you via Dropbox. Dropbox is a service to provide online hosting of data. They self-certify as being compliant with Privacy Shield, and as such are compliant with GDPR.
