Personal Information here means information which identifies you, like your name or email address. Any information that falls out of this is non-personal information.
In the event we store personal information with information that is non-personal, we will consider the combination as personal information. If we remove all personal information in a set of data, then the remaining is non-personal information.
We collect information about you when:
- You give it to us directly for example when you register or choose to transact through our system.

- We collect it automatically through our services that make use of technologies such as cookies.
- When someone else tells us information about you.
The information we collect helps us personalise, improve and operate services. You may as well voluntarily provide additional information about yourself to enhance service delivery. We store the information you provide about yourself to make available services and information you request.
Unless otherwise described below, we will not use personal information provided to us for purposes other than those you have requested without also providing you with an opportunity to agree to or otherwise limit such uses.
