  • To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
  • For our legitimate interests or those of a third party; or
  • Where you have given consent.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.

  • With your and our service providers located outside the EEA;
  • If you are based outside the EEA;
  • Where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you.

These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.

Your Rights

You have the following rights in relation to your personal information:

  • Rectification– The right to require us to correct any mistakes in your personal information.
  • Erasure – The right to require us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it – in certain situations.
