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

explicitly provided your prior consent. You may opt out of our marketing communications at any
time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of our marketing emails.
