Why we need your information
We will use your personal information for a limited number of purposes and always in line with our responsibilities, where there is a legal basis and your rights under the Data Protection legislation.

We may not be able to provide you with this service if we do not have enough information and, in some instances, your consent to use that information.
We aim to keep your information accurate and up to date. You can help us to do this at any time by letting us know if any of the information you have given us, such as your address, changes.
