Failure to provide your personal data


Please note that if you fail to provide certain personal information when required, we may not be able to perform our obligations resulting from a contract entered into with you or fully comply with our legal obligations, which might be detrimental to you.

We may need to share your personal information in certain circumstances with third parties, e.g. e insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in Section 2 or as follows:

Some of these recipients of the data may be located overseas. Where personal data is to be transferred outside of the country, we comply with the applicable data protection laws and ensure that personal data be transferred outside of the country only in accordance with the requirements prescribed under the applicable data protection laws, to ensure that a standard of protection that is comparable to the protection under such laws is provided to the personal data so transferred.
