We will only use personal data of data subjects when the law permits, and we will use all such personal data in accordance with this Privacy Notice, the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). 

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to do so. Most commonly the basis we will rely on to use your personal data is: 

~ Where we need to perform a contract and/or we are about to enter a contract and/or we have entered into a contract with you;

~ Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). Our legitimate interests include for us to manage our business effectively by marketing, debt collecting, managing our relationship with you, improving our services and managing our website;

~ Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, for example where we are your employer or because a public authority compels us to; and

~ Where you have given us your clear consent before the processing. Consent refers to any positive act whereby you signify your agreement (i.e. by clicking a check box). Consent will only be valid if it is a freely given, specific, informed and an unambiguous indication is given. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us. 

We will only send you direct marketing communications by email or text if we have your consent. You have the right to withdraw that consent at any time by contacting us. We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.
