Purpose and Intended Recipients
1 We will collect Personal Information such as your name, telephone number, mobile number, date of birth,
address and bank account information only for the purpose of providing our services to you or for any purpose
that is directly incidental to the provision of those services. In the event that we wish to use your Personal
Information for any other purpose, we will identify such purpose and obtain your consent before doing so, unless
the new purpose is required by law. For the avoidance of doubt, purposes that we would regard as being directly
incidental to the provision of our service include credit assessment and debt recovery purposes as well as
information about our services. If you choose to add a recipient on our website, we will ask you for your
recipient’s name, email address, financial information (bank information) and physical address.

provide necessary Personal Information when requested may result in certain services not being available to you
or other consequences as notified at the time of request.
3 We may disclose information about you, including your Personal Information, to our affiliates, employees,
officers and agents for the purposes set out in paragraph 1 above and to our contractors and suppliers to enable
them to assist in the provision of the services to you. If We wish to provide your Personal Information to any other
recipient, we will identify that recipient and obtain your consent before doing so, unless the provision of that
information to that recipient is permitted by law.

the circumstances and the type of information collected. For example, we will rely on your implied consent when
you give us your name, address, telephone number and other details necessary for us to verify your identity in
accordance with the provisions of the customer agreement you enter into. We will seek your express consent if
the information is of a financial nature or concerns your personal credit.

restrictions you have already entered into with us, and provided that you give us reasonable notice in writing. We
will explain to you the implications of such withdrawal.

our services. If you provide us with electronic contact details, you agree that we may send you commercial
