Current data protection law states that there are a number of legal reasons why a company might collect and process personal data. We have undertaken a full review of our policies and procedures to determine the most relevant legal basis for certain situations:
Consent – when you give us specific consent to use your data for a given purpose. For example when you ask us to provide you with details of goods & services.
Contract – when you engage with our services, we will process your personal data in order to deliver the agreed service.
Legal Compliance – if the law or government requires us to we will collect and process personal data.
Legitimate Interest – this legal basis allows us to use personal data in a way that might reasonably be expected as part of running the business. This basis does not affect your freedom or rights and you have the right to request that the information we hold is erased, or that communication preferences are changed. To request changes to your data please contact us. An example of us using the legitimate interest legal basis is through direct marketing channels to advise you of services that might be relevant to you, or to advise you of a new innovative product that might be relevant to you or your business.
