Keeping your information secure
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We will also use technological and organisation measures to keep your information secure.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
Indeed, while we will use all reasonable efforts to secure your personal data, in using the site you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information that are transferred from you or to you via the internet. If you have any particular concerns about your information, please contact us using the details below.
If you follow a link to any other websites, we encourage you to keep in mind that these sites have their own privacy policies and that we do not take any responsibility for these policies.
Transfers of your information outside of Europe
We have offices outside Europe and as a result, personal information may be transferred outside the countries where we and our clients are located. This includes countries outside the European Union (EU). We have taken steps to ensure all personal information is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of personal information outside the EU are done lawfully.
Where we transfer personal information outside the EU to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, the transfers will be under an agreement which covers the EU requirements for the transfer of personal information outside the EU, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses.
Children and the validity of consent
This Site is not intentionally designed for or directed at children, and all users should be above the age of majority in their local country. We adhere to laws regarding marketing to children. We will not knowingly collect or maintain personal information about under-age individuals, except as part of an engagement to provide professional services and only following the express consent of their legal guardian or parent.
What rights do you have?
Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have a number of important rights. In summary, you have the right to access and update your personal information, the right to erasure, the right to portability of your data in a universally used form, the right of objection, and the right to object to automated decision-making. Please note that these rights are not absolute and therefore subject to exceptions under the European Community or Cypriot laws.
For further information you may refer to the Handbook on European data protection law (http://fra.europa.eu/en/publication/2018/handbook-european-data-protection-law)
If you would like to exercise any of these rights please:
- email or write to us
- let us have enough information to identify you
- let us have proof of your identity (a copy of your driving license, passport or a recent credit card/utility bill)

From time to time we may also have other methods to unsubscribe (opt-out) from any direct marketing including for example, unsubscribe buttons or web links. If such are offered, please note that there may be some period after selecting to unsubscribe in which marketing may still be received while your request is being processed.
How to complain
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
