Each time you access or use the Website Services or provide us with information, by doing so you acknowledge the practices described in this Policy. For use of specific services, i.e., the AIFC public wi-fi, you may be asked to opt-in to our use of the information you submit there. Your rights described herein apply in these instances as well.

Where we need to collect information by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may terminate the contract.
