We collect non-identifying statistical information about visits to this site. Site statistics allow us to assess the number of visitors to different sections of the site, identify what information is of interest, monitor system performance and help us make the site more useful to visitors.


Cookies are small text files that are placed in your browser by the websites you visit. They are widely used to help users navigate websites efficiently, to perform certain functions on the sites and/or to provide site owners with information about how their sites are used.

Keeping personal information secure is important to us. We protect the personal information we hold through a range of measures. You can read about them on our Security page.

How long we’ll keep it

We will keep your contact information for as long as we require it to promote or provide our services to you and for a short period after you close your account in case you’d like to re-open it again.

The information you enter into our contract builders is only retained for a short period of time. We have designed our services this way to minimise the amount of information we hold and the period for which we hold it. We do not retain copies of the contracts and other documents produced by our services and the data you enter to produce them is deleted on a weekly basis (or faster if you request).
