defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each
category. If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we
shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any
new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you When you create an
account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is
formed between you and us.
In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the
information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information. We may use it in order to:
1.1. verify your identity for security purposes

1.3. provide you with our services

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information
before we enter into a legal contract. Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide
class information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide. If we use it for this
purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract
between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
2. Information we process with your consent Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual
relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business,

a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
Except where you have consented to our use of your
information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate
it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our

selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.

information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us email@example.com. However, if you do so, you may not be able to
use our website or our services further.
3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests We may process information on the

after having given careful consideration to:
• whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
• whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
• whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it
reasonable to do so For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
• record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business
• responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
• protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
• insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk
• protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation We are subject to the law like everyone else.
Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required
to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant
or court order. This may include your personal information.
