Our legitimate interests include sending you information about Kerv (when you sign up to the newsletter), responding to your queries, analysing the use of our websiteand using the personal data collected to better understand the needs of our customers.
We may, however, rely on any of the other following legal bases if appropriate:
- your consent (for example, if we serve non-essential cookies). you are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org;
- we have a contractual obligation with you (for example, to provide you a service); or

How we store your personal information and how long it is kept
Your information is securely stored in an encrypted form to protect against unauthorised access or processing.
We retain your personal data where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, and we only retain your personal data so long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was originally collected. For example, where you make a submit a query to us online, we will keep the personal data for a period which enables us to handle or respond to any complaints or concerns regarding our response or your query.
We will actively review the personal data we hold and delete it securely, or in some cases anonymise it, when there is no longer a legal, business or consumer need for it to be retained. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
