In certain circumstances we may also collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information as permitted or required by law or a Court or Tribunal order.

Data protection measures are never completely secure and despite the measures we put in place we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. You must take care to protect your personal information (e.g. by protecting usernames and passwords). You should notify us as soon as possible if you become aware of any security breaches.
You may access your personal information that we hold subject to a small number of legal restrictions or exemptions. Where such restrictions or exemptions exist we will advise you of those reasons if we deny your request for access.
If you wish to access your personal information that we hold you should contact us at the details below (see the "Our contact information" section below) and provide us with proof (satisfactory to us) of your identity.
While we do not charge you for a request for accessing your personal information, please be aware that we may charge a reasonable fee (which will be notified to you once you make a request) for our time and costs in complying with your request in the following circumstances:
We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. However, we rely on you to advise us of any changes to your personal information.
Please contact us at the details below (see the "Our contact information" section below) as soon as possible if there are any changes to your personal information or if you believe the personal information we hold about you is not accurate, complete or up-to-date so that we can update our records accordingly.
If you wish to make a complaint about our handling of your personal information or if you believe we have breached the APPs please contact us at the details below (see the "Our contact information" section below). You will need to provide us with sufficient details regarding your complaint together with any supporting evidence.
