  • Law enforcement agencies, regulatory organisations, courts or other public authorities where we have a legal obligation to do so.

We will release information if it is reasonable for the purpose of protecting us against fraud, defending our rights or property or to protect the interests of our customers.

If we are reorganised or sold to another organisation, we may transfer any personal information we hold about you and your membership to that organisation. We will inform you if we do.
