Cable & Wireless collect personal data from you through the use of enquiry and registration forms, direct personal contact with you (for example, over the telephone) and every time you email us your details.

With your consent, Cable & Wireless will use your personal data for direct marketing, including the provision of offers for Cable & Wireless and its third party partners' products and services and customer surveys.

Cable & Wireless will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.

Cable & Wireless may disclose your personal data to carefully selected business partners and third party suppliers to whom we engage to provide services. However, other than as set out in this Privacy Policy, Cable & Wireless will not disclose or share your personal data with any other third party without your express consent unless this is necessary to provide the services or products which you requested when providing us with your personal data or as required by law.

If you have consented at the point of collection to Cable & Wireless (and/or any third party) providing you with direct marketing material you will be requested to elect the type of media via which this material shall be provided (for example, by post, e-mail, telephone or fax).
