    We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. 

    Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:

    Change of purpose

    We will only use your personal information for the purposes we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

    Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:

    • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This right enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected.
    • Request erasure of your personal information. This right enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
