Why we collect personal information.
We collect personal information for our business functions and activities, when you subscribe to receive AMBA eNews, submit an inquiry or to comply with our legal obligations. With this information we will provide information and communicate with our clients and contacts to keep our clients and contacts informed and to responsibly market our services.

Sometimes we may obtain information about you from our contacts. For example, your employer may provide us with your contact details.
We will not ask for sensitive information about you, e.g. details of your racial or ethnic origin, political affiliations, religious beliefs, sexual preferences, criminal convictions or health information, unless we need it to provide you with professional advice.
