In this event, we will explain why we have decided not to action your request.


You may request that we correct the information we hold on you when it is incorrect, out of date, or incomplete. You may do this at any time by emailing editor@currencynewscentre.com.


You may request that we destroy, delete or discontinue using your personal information when it is no longer necessary for the purpose we originally collected it.
