If the Customer does not provide EXKi with the information required by law or contract, EXKi has the right to refuse to accept any requests or orders made by the Customer. Equally, if the Customer does not provide other information, they will not be able to benefit from any associated advantages. For example, if a Customer does not wish to share their email address with EXKi, they will not receive any electronic information letters from EXKi.
