Processing Your Personal Data, and Obtaining Your Consent
Where we rely on your consent for processing your personal data, you may withdraw your previous consent to this processing at any time, by contacting us by using the contact details below. Please note, however, that withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your previous consent (prior to withdrawal).
Where we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will log any objection you make, and stop processing your data for direct marketing purposes.
There may be instances where we process your personal data for our legitimate interests or on the basis of other lawful grounds (i.e., because we have established a relationship with you and need to process your personal data in order to provide you with the information and/or services you have requested), without having obtained your consent – this applies where our processing activities are governed by the applicable laws of certain jurisdictions in which we operate that do not require consent to have been obtained where there are legitimate interests and/or other lawful grounds to process the relevant personal data.
We do not seek your consent in such cases largely so that we provide you with services in an efficient way (or where in some cases it might not be possible for us to seek your consent because we must process personal data, for example, for the detection of fraud). Before processing your personal data, we will consider your rights and freedoms and will only commence such processing where we do not think your rights will be infringed.
The collection of your personal data by us may be mandatory or voluntary in nature depending on the purposes for which your personal data is collected. Where it is mandatory for you to provide us with your personal data, and you fail or choose not to provide us with such data, or do not consent to the above or this Privacy Statement, we will not be able to provide our products and/or services or otherwise deal with you and/or to assess and process your application.

As part of the services offered to you either through the website or otherwise, the information which you provide to us may in some instances be transferred to countries outside of the EEA and UK. The data protection laws in such countries may not provide the same level of protection for your personal data as provided for under European and UK data protection laws. However, when we transfer your information outside of the EEA or UK in this way, we take steps to ensure that appropriate safeguards, required by law, are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Privacy Statement.
