DATA RETENTION POLICY
This policy details procedures for Sunrise Career Guidance’s retention and disposal of records and information, and relates to both hard- and soft-copy documents.
Records are defined as all those documents which facilitate the business carried out by Sunrise Career Guidance and which are then retained (for a set period) to provide evidence of its transactions and/or activities. These records may be created, received or maintained in hard copy or electronically.
Relationship with other policies
Sunrise Career Guidance will retain financial records of transactions for seven years following completion of services. Following this period, at the end of the financial year, files will be securely deleted or disposed of.
Information, including personal data, that you provide will only be retained for two years following your order, unless otherwise instructed by you.
We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis.
Safe disposal of records
Records identified for destruction will be permanently disposed of in accordance with reasonable processes.
In the event of business closure, only transaction records will be stored for the defined retention period, then disposed of as outlined above.
