How we use your personal information will depend on the manner in, and purpose for, which it is collected. Generally, we collect and hold the personal information you supply us to identify and contact you and provide any information you request, and to provide services and/or products to you.
For personal information that you voluntarily provide to us, we may notify you of any intended use of such information at the time of collection. In addition to any use notified to you at the time of collection, we may use such personal information for marketing and promotional purposes by us, our related companies or affiliates and third-party contractors (which may include sending you marketing and promotional materials or running marketing campaigns via social media and other channels).

Retention and Deletion
The data we collect will only be retained for as long as it is needed to carry out the purpose for which it was collected.

Any information that is collected via Google Analytics will automatically be deleted after 26 months.
