By providing and/or submitting personal data to us, you are also acknowledging that we may use this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal data is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission or are otherwise required or permitted to do so by law.

We process personal data so long as we have grounds under law to do so. When we process your personal data, we will rely on one of the following processing conditions:

  • Performance of a contract: This is when the processing of your personal data is necessary in order to perform our obligations under a contract with you.
  • Legal obligation: This is when we are required to process your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation, such as keeping records for tax purposes or providing information to a public body or law enforcement agency.
  • Legitimate interests: We may process information about you where it is in our legitimate interest to do so in running a lawful business in order to further that business, so long as it does not outweigh your interests.

We collect and process “sensitive” personal data only when the relevant individuals voluntarily provide us with this data and give their consent on processing such data or where such data is required or permitted to be collected and processed by law. Sensitive personal data includes personal data regarding a person’s race, ethnicity, political beliefs, political party or trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, genetics or biometrics, sexual life, or criminal record as defined by applicable laws. Please use your discretion when providing sensitive personal data to us, and do not, under any circumstances, provide sensitive personal data to us unless you consent to our use of that sensitive personal data for legitimate business purposes and to the transfer and storage of such data to and in the Company’s databases.

We destruct personal data stored in electronic file format by archiving it into a separate database in which the information is irretrievable through our ordinary course of business, or using technical means which make it impossible to restore the data.
