After the end of the retention period, should you wish to have the data associated with your purchase removed from our database, please contact L. Williams and provide any information that could be used to identify your invoice(s) or booking(s).

Should you wish to have the data associated with your account removed from our database, please contact L. Williams and provide any information that could be used to identify your account.

If the data within your user account, however, is retained in order to generate purchasing invoices, we may be unable to remove the account until the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) records retention period (currently six years after the end of the current year) has passed. We can, however, limit any additional processing between the time of your request and the expiry of the retention period.
