We may also need to collect personal information from third parties, such as your accountant and product providers, but only with authority from you.
Your personal information is generally held in client files and in a digital database. Your personal information may also be held in a secure archiving facility.
We will seek to ensure that we take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that we hold is protected from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. Some of the measures that we have adopted are having access controls for our computer systems.

This is subject to exceptions allowed by law such as where providing you with access would have an unreasonable impact upon the privacy of others.

We endeavour to take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date.

If we agree that the personal information requires correcting we will take reasonable steps to do so.
