However, if we contact a person for the purpose of direct marketing, without having obtained your consent first, because it is impracticable for us to do so, we will at that time provide you with the opportunity to decline any further marketing communications at no cost to you.

We may also disclose personal information where the individual consents to us doing so. That consent may be written, verbal or implied from your conduct.
Do we disclose your personal information to overseas recipients?
Our related entities and some of our service providers (including information technology service providers) may be located overseas and, as a result, personal information collected and held by us may be transferred overseas from time to time.
