If we require your personal data due to a legal requirement or obligation or in order to perform a contract with you, we will make you aware of this at the time we collect your personal data, and the possible consequences of you failing to provide this personal data (e.g., we may require your passport details to verify your identity for the purposes of anti-money laundering regulations and failure to provide this information means that we cannot provide our services or products to you). In this case, we may have to cancel a service or investment you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
