HOW WE ARE USING YOUR INFORMATION

In light of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect on 25 May 2018, data protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:

- When it is our legal duty, or
- When it is in our legitimate interest, or
- When you consent to it.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you.
Here is a list of all the ways that we may use your personal information, and which of the reasons we rely on to do so.
