Where we wish to use or disclose your personal information, or personal information in the form of Patient Data for other purposes, we will obtain your consent.

We may provide you with electronic marketing messages from time to time. You may opt out of receiving electronic messages from us at any time by contacting our Privacy Officer via the contact details at the bottom of this privacy policy or by using the opt out mechanism included in our electronic marketing messages.
