1.6 Purpose of the processing and the legal basis for the processing of personal data

For us to fulfil our contractual and customer obligations, there is a requirement to collect specific personally identifiable information relating to our customers. There are a couple of legal bases for the processing of such personally identifiable information. If you sign up on our website or one of our landing pages, then personal information is processed on the basis that we have a legitimate interest in doing so. For marketing communications, if you are an existing member we use the legitimate interest legal basis to provide marketing communications. However, you will always have the option of unsubscribing from these emails. If you are a new customer, you will be required to provide consent by checking an ‘opt in’ box. If you provide this consent, you will always have the option to unsubscribe from marketing. If you do not provide this consent you will only receive transactional emails and emails that you are required to be made aware of (e.g. updates to terms etc).

1.7 We have a legitimate interest in further processing the information which is provided you at the point of sale for marketing purposes. We may also use your information for other specific legitimate purposes such as:

  • To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
  • To provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have either explicitly consented to or we believe you have a legitimate interest in.
  • To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
  • To notify you about changes to our service.
