·         to avoid risks to health and safety of an individual or society at large;  

·         where the law requires us to do so; or  

·         where you have given express consent to us for a prescribed purpose.  

We will not sell, distribute, rent, licence, disclose, share or pass your personal information onto any third parties, other than those who are contracted to us to keep the information confidential, for example our internet provider.
