Sharing your personal information

We may also provide your personal information to third parties we occasionally partner with. If you purchase a product or service that is delivered by one of our partners, we will give them the personal information they require to provide you with that product or service.
We also work with other third parties to provide some types of sales, business and customer support. They may have access to some of our systems that hold your personal information. However, they are subject to strict controls that protect your personal information from unauthorised use or disclosure and limit their access to your personal information to the extent necessary to perform their functions.

- We believe this is necessary to provide you with the products or services you have requested;
- It is necessary to implement our terms of service; or

In special circumstances, for example, if we sell our business, your personal information may be transferred as part of that sale. We will not use your personal information for purposes unrelated to the services we provide without your consent.
We will also provide access to your personal information where we are legally permitted or obliged to do so.
Once your personal information is no longer required for any purpose, we will take all reasonable steps to destroy, delete or permanently de-identify your personal information.
