Where we make major changes to our Privacy Policy or intend to use your information for a new purpose or a different purpose than the purposes for which we originally collected it, we will notify you by email (where possible) or by posting a notice on our website. 
We will provide you with the information about the change in question and the purpose and any other relevant information before we use your information for that new purpose. 
Wherever required, we will obtain your prior consent before using your information for a purpose that is different from the purposes for which we originally collected it.
