Generally, where you have not sailed with us or delivered services to young or vulnerable people on our behalf and there is no legal requirement we retain all physical and electronic records for a period of 6 years after our contract with you ends.  Exceptions to this rule are:

We will retain the names of people who sailed with us, their date of birth, and the dates they sailed indefinitely so any future query by an outside party as to who sailed with us can be answered if necessary.

Information that may be relevant to personal injury or discrimination claims or child welfare concerns may be retained until the limitation period for those types of claims has expired. For personal injury or discrimination claims this can be an extended period as the limitation period might not start to run until a long time after the event.

Volunteers and paid staff personnel files and training records (including disciplinary and working time records) will be kept for six years after employment / volunteering ceases unless there are concerns about the behaviour of an adult who was working with children or vulnerable people, where they may have harmed someone, committed an offence, or their behaviour indicates they are unsuitable to work with children or vulnerable people. In this case records will be retained until normal retirement age or ten years if that is longer.
