Sharing of information and provision of information to third parties

We will use your personal data only for the purposes for which it was collected. Should it be required for other uses, we will obtain your specific permission for that (the exception being if your information is required by law, our regulators or professional standards).

We will not share your data with third parties except as required and permitted by applicable law. We will not sell your personal data or provide it to third parties for any purposes.
