Use and disclosure of information

We use the information about you in a variety of ways. These include assisting in providing and managing our services to you, meeting our obligations under the law in relation to the advice we are licenced to provide, in our marketing and research requirements and to perform our administrative functions.

We may disclose your information, subject to what is permitted by law, to a limited number of third parties.
