We may disclose information about you to any of our employees, officers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy.

In addition, we may disclose your personal information:
7.1 to the extent that we are required to do so by law;

7.3 in order to establish, to exercise or defend our legal rights, including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk;

We will take all reasonable, technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information and data.

We may also notify you of any changes by email.

Please check this page regularly to ensure that you are familiar with the current terms and conditions of this website.
