For example, these may include access to and provision of third party software, data storage and backup facilities, payment processing and marketing and engaging freelance and sub-contracted services. In some cases, such third parties may require access to some or all of your data.

All such data will be anonymised and will not include any personally identifying data, or any anonymised data that can be combined with other data and used to identify you. We may from time to time share such data with third parties.
