If you would like to access any of our software, services or features of our Platform on an anonymous basis we will take reasonable steps to comply with your request. However, we will require you to identify yourself if:
- we are required by law to deal with individuals who have identified themselves; or
- it is impracticable for us to deal with you if you do not identify yourself or elect to use a pseudonym.

- The countries in which likely overseas recipients of personal information are located includes the United States of America, European Economic area countries and the United Kingdom.
- We consider that overseas recipients of personal information in such named jurisdictions are subject to a law, or binding scheme, that has the effect of protecting personal information in a way that, overall, is at least substantially similar to the way in which the APPs protect personal information and there are mechanisms that a relevant individual can access to take action to enforce that protection of the law or binding scheme.
- In any event, we customarily seek enforceable contractual arrangements with overseas recipients that require the recipient and any sub-Processors to handle personal information in accordance with relevant Data Protection Laws and Regulations (including, as relevant, the APPs).

You acknowledge that, depending on the nature of the restriction you request, we may be unable to provide you with some or all of our products or services (or any part of any product or service) if we comply with your request. In such circumstances, we will advise you of our inability to provide or continue to provide you with the relevant products or services, and if you confirm that you would like us to comply with your request, we may terminate a relevant agreement or other document with you in relation to our products or services.
