However, in certain circumstances your consent is not required. Some examples where consent may not be required are: where the collection, use or disclosure of the personal information is reasonable and required for LivingWorks to comply with a legal obligation; where the collection, use or disclosure of personal information without consent satisfies a legitimate interest of ours, or a vital interest of yours—for example, if a circumstance required your medical history to be disclosed for emergency treatment.
