This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Sponsored content

If the header bar of a story ‘brick’ contains an “S” icon, this means the content is sponsored and has been provided by an external party. If you wish to read a sponsored article you are required to consent to us providing your contact details to the Sponsor who may contact you

If you would like to read sponsored content you should first click on the “S” to find out more about what the sponsored item contains and whether the Sponsor will want to contact you or not. Clicking on the “S” only does not constitute reading a sponsored article.

If you choose to read a sponsored article, you explicitly consent to us providing the personal details that you have submitted to us to the Sponsor. However, this may not result in you being contacted as the relevance of you to the Sponsor may vary.
