Lawful Processing

Data protection law requires us to rely on one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. We consider the following grounds to be relevant:

Specific Consent

Where you have provided specific consent to us using your personal information in a certain way, such as to send you email, text and/or telephone marketing.

Performance of a Contract

Where we are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under it like when you contract for the Company’s services or products.

Legal Obligation

Where necessary so that we can comply with a legal or regulatory obligation to which we are subject or to comply with a court order.

Vital interests

Where it is necessary to protect life or health or a safeguarding issue which requires us to share you information with the emergency services.

Legitimate Interests

Where it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as what the information is used for is fair and does not unduly impact your rights).

When we process your personal information in this way, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (for example, where such use would be excessively intrusive and no other legitimate basis exists for using your information).

When we use sensitive personal information, we require an additional legal basis to do so under data protection laws, so we will either do so on the basis of your explicit consent or another route available to us at law (for example, if we need to process it for employment, social security or social protection purposes, your vital interests, or, in some cases, if it is in the public interest for us to do so).
