How we will use your personal information

We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of marketing and providing our services to you. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you could reasonably expect such use or disclosure.

We will also use your Personal Information for any other reason where you consent to the use of that information in writing or where permitted by the APPs.

We will add your details to our marketing database and you will receive information from us because of that. You may unsubscribe from our marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.

Collection from Third Parties

Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties.
