  2. Specified and legitimate purpose(s). This means that we need to be clear, honest and transparent as to the purpose(s) that we will use your information for. This is also achieved through the use of data protection statements and privacy notices.
  3. Adequate, relevant and not excessive. This relates to the capture of information about you not being excessive for the intended purpose. For example asking for your banking details when they are not required would be excessive.
  4. Accurate and where necessary up to date. This relates to our obligations around the management of your information.
  5. Not kept for longer than necessary. This principle means that the information held about you cannot be held indefinitely. Your information can only be retained for the purpose(s) required and to comply with certain other legal obligations. For example tax laws requires information to be retained for seven years. FP will retain your information to conform with legal requirements and for as long as is justifiable for the management and historical account of FP’s work.
