Examples of situations in which we collect personal information include when you request to be placed on a mailing list or ask about our membership packages or events.

We normally collect personal information and financial information so that we can collect payment for the membership packages we offer or for attendance at one of our events. Your information may also be supplied for the subject of a credit check conducted by a credit agency to protect our ability to recover any outstanding charges.

Examples of secondary purposes for which we use personal information include where we conduct a credit check or where we send you bulletins or information about other products and services that we provide or maybe involved with.
