Legal basis to process your personal data

The law allows for personal data to be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate interest of the organisation – as long as it is fair and balanced and does not unduly impact the rights of individuals.

We have assessed our business interests in carrying out our services and we have carefully considered the impact the collection and use of personal data could potentially have on individuals’ rights. Our databases contain data relating to companies and contacts, which is used to promote our business and such activities are unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals concerned. You have the option to opt out of being including in our CRM solution at any time. We have therefore concluded that unless we have documented evidence of valid consent being available for your data, the most appropriate lawful ground for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interests.

In the event you request any goods and/or services from us, we will rely on our contractual relationship to process your personal data to provide such goods and/or services to you.
