Collection of Personal Data including e-mail addresses
You may provide us with your Personal Data in order to receive information, advice, products or services from us. We may request personal information about you such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone numbers and we may ask for information which enables us to provide a personalised service to you. The information you give us is either manually or electronically stored in our databases.
We sometimes supplement the information that you provide with information that is received from third parties. For instance, if inaccurate post codes are received, we will use third party software to fix them.
If you provide us with the Personal Data of a third party pursuant to a power of attorney, we may process such Personal Data (including information about the third party’s mental health) in order to provide information, goods or services to the third party for whom you act as attorney. In addition, we may hold information about your position as attorney for the purpose of administering products or services to the third party for whom you act as attorney.
