Direct marketing materials 

We may send you direct marketing communications and information about our products and services that we consider may be of interest to you. These communications are sent in various forms, including mail, SMS, and email, in accordance with applicable marketing laws. If you indicate a preference in regards to a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that method whenever practical to do so. In addition, at any time you may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us (see details below) or by using opt-out facilities provided in the marketing communications and we will ensure that your name is removed from our mailing list.

We ensure that that your personal information is only accessible to those of our employees whose duties require such access. We may hold your information in either electronic or hard copy form. We will destroy or de-identify personal information that is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or if we are no longer permitted or required by law to retain it. 

As our Site is linked to the internet, and the internet is inherently insecure, we cannot provide any assurance regarding the security of transmission of information you communicate to us online. We also cannot guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the internet. Accordingly, any personal information or other information which you transmit to us online is transmitted at your own risk.

You may request access to records of your personal information at any time by contacting us (details below). Where we hold information that you are entitled to access, we will try to provide you with suitable means of accessing it (eg. by mailing or emailing it to you). We may impose a reasonable fee for providing you with access to your personal information. Access may be denied where we are permitted or required by law to deny access to such information.

If you believe that personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may ask us to amend it. We will take steps to validate the information and ensure that it is corrected.

There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the personal information we hold. For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access would interfere with the privacy of others or if it would result in a breach of confidentiality. If that happens, we will give you written reasons for any refusal.
