We share your information where you ask us to, where it’s a necessary part of doing business with you and providing you with the services,or where we need to for legal reasons. We may also share your personal information with third parties in the following circumstances:
Product suppliers and brokers

How long do we store your personal data?
Your personal data is processed in the UK. We may transfer, store or process your personal information outside of the UK/European Economic Area (“EEA”). The laws in some countries may not provide as much legal protection for your personal information as in the UK/EEA.
By submitting your personal information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. Where we use service providers outside the UK/EEA, we rely on approved data transfer mechanisms (for example, the EU Standard Contractual Clauses and the EU-US Privacy Shield) to ensure that your personal information is adequately safeguarded in the recipient country.
Unfortunately, transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your personal information, but we cannot guarantee its security and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We keep your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. These periods vary depending on the nature of the information and your interactions with us.
