The legal basis on which we collect and use your personal data is most often simply that we need it to perform our contract with you. You do not have to provide us with personal data, but if you do not provide the information requested, we may not be able to provide our services to you.
A second legal basis which we sometimes rely on is that we need the data for our legitimate interests, and your interest in privacy is not unduly affected. We may use personal data to: study customers’ usage of our products and services; collect debts; carry out marketing (where you have not opted out of receipt of marketing).
The third legal basis we use is that we need the data in order to comply with a legal obligation.
