Personal information is only ever sought with a specific purpose in mind, such as providing services. When we desire personal information we will always let the individual know the reason, and ask for permission to collect it. We will respect any decision not to share information. However, this necessarily means the intended purpose cannot be fulfilled. This may mean certain services cannot be accessed.
We only store information for as long as necessary to fulfil the specified purpose. Whilst stored, we take steps to help protect data from threats including theft and alteration. Personal information may be shared when the law requires it or when individuals have granted their permission.
