What’s our legal basis for processing your data?

We believe we have a legitimate business need to store and process your personal information for some marketing purposes, whether you’re a client (on the basis that we can continue our professional relationship) or a prospective client (on the basis that we provide useful marketing newsletters of a non-sales nature). As such, we’re operating under the ‘legitimate interests’ lawful ground for processing, as defined by GDPR, but you always have a choice. Clear opt out mechanisms are provided at all times.

In the UK, our data protection supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Read the ICO’s clarification on legitimate interests processing here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/lawful-basis-for-processing/legitimate-interests.

Your rights

Under GDPR, you have certain rights as an individual which you can exercise in relation to the personal information we hold on you. These include the right to rectification and right to object, both of which we’ve already mentioned in the sections above.

There are other rights too such as the right of access, right to data portability and more. Read the ICO’s clarification on individual rights here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights.

Should you wish to make a complaint about the way we process your personal information, you can contact the ICO here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns.
