We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure that your personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Your exercise of some of these rights (or withdrawal of consent) may mean we cannot perform the services or supply the products that you have requested. We’ll let you know where this is the case.
