Personal data we disclose to third parties

There may be occasions whereby we disclose your data to a third-party organisation. We follow strict guidelines in the storage and disclosure of information that you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Reasons for disclosure may be:

  • Where there is a legal obligation to do so, for example, a court order.
