Depending on the circumstances, your consent may be express or implied. Express consent would arise if you specifically consented to a particular dealing in your personal information. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent can be inferred from the circumstances. For example, we will assume that we can deliver invoices to the address you provide unless you inform us otherwise. In this example, your address may be personal information.

However, if you withdraw certain consents, it may limit the services we are able to provide to you. For more information, please contact us using the contact information set out below.
