How we can share your data
There will be times when we need to share your personal data with third parties. We will only disclose your personal data to:
other companies in the Debtrak group of companies
regulators, law enforcement bodies, government agencies, courts or other third parties where we think it’s necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations, or to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights. Where possible and appropriate, we will notify you of this type of disclosure
