It is possible that information will be transferred to an overseas recipient (other than any of our overseas related entities) located in a jurisdiction where you will not be able to seek redress under your local data protection laws and that does not have an equivalent level of data protection as in your jurisdiction.  To the extent permitted by your local data protection laws, we will not be liable for how these overseas recipients handle, store and process your Personal Information.

Access, correction and other requests in relation to your personal information

You are entitled to access any Personal Information we may hold about you in accordance with applicable laws. Where Personal Information we hold about you is not accurate, complete or up-to-date or the information is irrelevant or misleading, you may ask us to correct that Personal Information, and we will respond to your request within a reasonable time. We reserve the right to confirm the identity of the person seeking access or correction to Personal Information before complying with such a request. We reserve the right to deny you access for any reason permitted under applicable law.  If we deny access or correction, we will provide you with written reasons for such denial unless it is unreasonable to do so and, where required by applicable laws, will note your request and the denial of same in our records.  If you wish to access or seek correction of any Personal Information we hold about you, please refer to the “Enquiries” section below.
