- retain that information only for so long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which we have collected it;
- not disclose or release it to a third party unless you have authorised the release or disclosure, or we are required to or we are permitted by law to do so, or where it is the purpose (or a directly related purpose) for which the information was collected.
