Sensitive information

Some personal information collected by EWM is considered "sensitive".  This includes information provided by you on medical questionnaires that may be requested upon signing up for one of our courses.  This information is used and disclosed only for the purposes for which it was provided, or a directly related secondary purpose, unless you agree otherwise or for other specific reasons such as if the use or disclosure of this information is required by law or to prevent a serious and imminent threat to life or health of an individual.

If you provide us with someone else's personal information, you should only do so if you have their authority or consent to provide us with that information. You should take reasonable steps to inform them of the matters set out in this Privacy Policy.

How do we use your personal information?

We use personal information you provide only for purposes consistent with the reason you provided it, or for a directly related purpose.  We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information.

Generally, we will not use your personal information to market to you unless we have either your implied or express consent.  In situations where it is impractical to obtain your prior consent, we will ensure you have an ability to opt out of future such communications.

We do not share your personal information with other organisations unless you give us your express consent, or where sharing is otherwise required or permitted by law, or where this is necessary on a temporary basis to enable companies that provide services to us to perform specific functions.
