Are you required to provide personal data?
As a general principle, you will provide us with your personal data entirely voluntarily; there are generally no detrimental effects for you if you choose not to consent or to provide personal data. However, there are circumstances in which we cannot take action without certain of your personal data, for example, because this personal data is required to process your instructions or orders, provide you with access to a web offering or newsletter or to carry out a legally required compliance screening. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for us to provide you with what you request without the relevant personal data and we will notify you accordingly.
For which purposes will we use your personal data?

Providing advice or other services or things you may have requested;
Managing and administering your or your organisation's business relationship with us, including processing payments, accounting, auditing, billing and collection, support services;

We will not use your personal data for taking any automated decisions affecting you or creating profiles other than described above.
