SERVICE RELATED INFORMATION
We retain business information for as long as the business is an active client of Idealogy and the individual remains in their employ. We keep data for a period after either the business no longer works with us or the contact leaves that business, as necessary. This data is kept for legitimate business interests such as resolving disputes, complying to legal obligations, assist with investigations and supporting business operations. This is reviewed on a regular basis to clear data which is no longer needed.
If you have consented to receive marketing emails, we retain this information until you unsubscribe. Though we may review activity and clear information if there has been no activity for a significant amount of time e.g. email opens.
We store data on a legitimate interest basis for a limited time to establish if there is interest in our services.
