Purposes for Processing
Purposes for Processing
By registering your interest you consent to your data being processed for the purposes set out in this privacy notice.
Purposes for Processing
When we rely on legitimate interests as a legal basis for processing your personal data, we must consider whether those legitimate interests are overridden by your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms. We have considered these matters and we believe that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms. If this were to change and if we think that there is a risk that one or more of your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms may be affected, then we will not use your personal data unless there is another legal basis for us to do so (for example by obtaining your consent or to satisfy a legal obligation).
We do not intend to process your personal data for a purpose other than for which data was collected. Where there is a need to process your data for a purpose other than outlined to you, we will inform you of this.
Your right to object – Please note that you have a right to object to the processing of your personal data where that processing is carried out for our legitimate interests.
