8. DIRECT MARKETING
From time to time, we may contact you by email, post or SMS with information about products we believe your business may be interested in. If you are not representing a company, we will only send marketing messages to you in accordance with the marketing preferences you set when you give us your information or that you tell us afterwards you are happy to receive.

We cannot, however, guarantee that these measures are, or will remain, adequate. We do, however, take data security very seriously and will use all reasonable endeavours to protect the integrity of the information you provide.
We will keep your personal information for as long as reasonably required for the purpose for which it was obtained and thereafter to maintain our records and legal obligations.
