The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for which we may collect and process your personal data in certain circumstances, including:
We can collect and process your data with your consent.
We need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations.
For example, where you have provided us with your email address so that you or your employer can receive our services, we will use this information in order to effectively deliver and communicate our services.
If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data.
For example, we can pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity affecting us to applicable law enforcement.
We may require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.
For example, it is in our legitimate interests to ensure that content from our website is presented in the most effective manner for you and your computer and we provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us.
Our promotional updates and communications
Where permitted in our legitimate interest or with your prior consent where required by law, we will use your personal information for marketing analysis and to provide you with promotional update communications by email about our products/services.
