From time to time, we may ask other members of our group or third-party service providers to assist us in managing our information technology systems used to process personal information. We will only disclose personal information to such third-party service providers once we are satisfied that (i) adequate levels of protection are in place to protect the integrity and security of any personal information processed; and (ii) applicable privacy legislation is duly complied with. These measures may include the use of standard contractual clauses specifying the confidentiality of personal information and the purposes identified.

Any person authorized by us who has access to personal information must respect its confidentiality.
