      • This will not be used as a reason for disclosing Personal Information about a customer or a customer's accounts (including name and address) to anyone else, including other companies within the Telesure Group for marketing purposes.

These instances are limited and the disclosure of information, restricted to what is reasonably required in the circumstances
    • In the public interest
      • 1Life may be required to disclose Personal Information for matters of public interest (e.g. to assist in the prevention of crimes). Before complying with these requests, 1Life will take every precaution to ensure the authorities involved have legitimate grounds to make such a request; and
