What does Legitimate Interest mean?
“Legitimate Interest” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/products and the best and most secure experience.
For example, we have an interest in making sure the information and marketing we send is relevant for you, so we may process your data to send you information that is tailored to your interests.
It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws.
Having conducted an assessment that looks at what and how we communicate with you, we have concluded that our legitimate interests for processing come under some or all of the following:
We use your email address and contact details for communications and direct marketing purposes e.g. sending reports, providing you with information about our services and relevant events.
We do not sell or share your data and have systems in place to protect your data. We ensure that any third-party suppliers that we use have the highest levels of security.
