You may opt-out on a going-forward basis, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link (or similar) provided in the relevant marketing email. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
    2. Please also note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, and you cannot opt-out from receiving administrative messages.

If you make an access request, we may ask you to verify your identity.
    2. There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the Personal Information we hold. For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access would interfere with the privacy of others, or if it would result in a breach of confidentiality. If that happens, we will give you reasons for any refusal.
    3. If you believe that Personal Information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request that we update it by contacting us in accordance with Section ‎11 (Contacting Us) below. We will consider if the information requires updating. If we do not agree that there are grounds for updating it, then we will add a note to the Personal Information stating that you disagree with it.
