Use of information
- Necessary for the entry into / performance of a contract: When you enter into a transaction, a contract will have been entered into between you and the Company. In order for TEI to fulfil its obligations under such contract, we will need to collect and process your personal data. Failure to provide the requisite personal information on sign-up and financial information on entering into the transaction or objecting to this type of processing / exercising your deletion rights will unfortunately mean the company cannot provide the goods or services to you.
- Consent: If you have opted in, TEI may send you marketing messages by email, post or telephone about the Company and its products or other services.
If you are not a customer but have provided TEI with consent to use your details for marketing purposes, the Company may also contact you about its products and services.
TEI will only use personal information for the purpose it was collected. Should the Company ever wish to use it for another purpose, TEI will contact you first asking you for your consent.
