We hope this helps you to understand our privacy commitments to you. For further clarification of the terms used in this Policy please contact us (please see the ‘How to Contact Us’ Section 14 below).
Please note that the P97 Service requires you to provide and us to collect and use certain of your personal information. Therefore, if you do not agree with the content of this Policy, we will be unable to provide and you will be unable to use the P97 Service.
