2. How we use collected information

WIN uses the information you provide in order to identify you, communicate with you, and provide personalised services. If you choose to decline to provide certain personal information to WIN, WIN may not be able to provide you full access to the Website.

Our use of collected information may include: contacting you, including with promotional materials and notifications in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679; account management; research and development in improving our services and in developing new products and services; sharing aggregate information with third parties which does not personally identify you; and monitoring and maintaining our computers and network.

If you request WIN not to use personal information in a particular manner or at all, WIN will adopt all reasonable measures to observe your request but it may still use or disclose that information if WIN: subsequently notifies you of the intended use or disclosure and you do not object to that use or disclosure; believes that observing the request will legitimately inhibit WIN’s ability to provide the Website; believes that the use or disclosure is reasonably necessary to assist a law enforcement agency or an agency responsible for government or public security in the performance of their functions; or is required by law to disclose that information.

Personal information collected by WIN will be used only for purposes outlined in this policy. If WIN proposes to use your information for any other purposes then you will be provided with a means to opt out of the use of your information for those purposes. You may opt out of receiving promotional materials from WIN.
