Purpose of collection, use and disclosure
In most cases, we collect and record your information so that we can supply you with the products and/or services that you require. If the information we request from you is not provided, we may not be able to supply you with those products or services.
We may also use your personal information for any other purpose that you may reasonably expect, such as to improve our service and to notify you of opportunities or products that we think you might be interested in.

We may use information held about you to verify your compliance with any of our terms and conditions.
Any personal information submitted to us may need to be processed by a third party, for example, to process payments. By submitting personal information, you consent to the disclosure of that information to a third party, who may be located overseas, for the sole purpose of processing the submitted information.
We may also use or disclose personal information about you to avoid, lessen or prevent a serious emergency or crime. If we use or disclose personal information about you in those circumstances we will make a written record of such use or disclosure.
Third party services
