We may also aggregate data to enable research or analysis so that we can better understand and serve you and others. For example, we may conduct research on your demographics and usage.

Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

The Legal Basis for processing your Personal Data

There are a number of justifiable reasons under the GDPR that allow the processing of Personal Data. We rely on:

  • “Consent”: in certain situations we need your consent to process your Personal Data, such as when you tick a box that confirms you are happy to receive email newsletters from us, or ‘opt in’ to a service.
  • “Contractual Obligations”: we may require certain information from you in order to fulfil our contractual obligations and provide you with the promised service.
  • “Legal Compliance”: we’re required by law to collect and process certain types of data, such as fraudulent activity or other illegal actions.
  • “Legitimate Interest”: we might need to collect certain information from you to be able to meet our legitimate interests - this covers aspects that can be reasonably expected as part of running our business, that will not have a material impact on your rights, freedom or interests. 

How we use your Personal Data

Specifically, you will receive our newsletter or marketing and new content communications from us if you have consent to receiving those communications. From time to time we may make suggestions and recommendations to you about goods or services that may be of interest to you.

We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
