That may mean we have to cancel a product or service you have with us. We will notify you at the time if that is the case.

We use different methods to collect personal data from and about you including through:
- Direct interactions. You may give us your Identity, Contact and Financial Data by filling in forms on our websites and mobile applications, on third-party websites or in paper form or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. That includes personal data you provide when you:

In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.
