a) where you have provided your consent;

b) where it is necessary for us to perform our contract with you;

We will use any Personal Data you provide us with solely for the purpose for which it was collected. Should we find it necessary to use your Personal Data for an alternative purpose, we will contact you to set out the legal basis for utilising it in this way.

We may need to transfer Personal Data to third parties, including third parties based outside the European Economic Area, including (for example) to other professional service providers involved in your matters. Where we do so, such transfers will comply with applicable data protection laws.
