Legal basis for us processing your information
There are several ways that we are lawfully able to process your personal information
When it is necessary for us to carry out our obligations arising from any contract, or the establishment of a contract between you and us.
• GDPR explains that we can process your information if it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party.
• A confirmation of your order for our products or services is a contract between you and us.
When it is in our legitimate interest
• GDPR explains that we can process your information if it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights which require protection of personal information.
• We do not think that processing your information will negatively affect you in any way. However you have the right to object to this if you wish (please see ‘ The right to object’).
When you give us permission
In certain circumstances we will try to get your ‘opt-in’ permission before we process certain information. GDPR states that the opt-in permission is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he/she by a statement or by a clear affirmative action signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him/her.
This means that:
• you have to give us your permission freely, without pressure from us;
• we should only ask you to agree to one processing activity at a time;
• you have to know what you are agreeing to;
• you need to take positive and clear action to give us permission.
You have the right to withdraw your permission at any time (please see ‘the right to remove permission’).
