2.5 The legal basis on which we collects your Personal Data
We collect and process your Personal Data on the basis of different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the Personal Data being provided and the type of processing involved. More information is provided on this below:
– Performance of a contract. Most of the Personal Data processed by us is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement.
– Legitimate Interest. A second ground relied upon by us for other types of processing of your Personal Data is that it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us. Such legitimate interests will include where we send you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, or where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention. We will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.
– Compliance with a Legal Obligation. A third ground relied upon for certain types of processing is that it is necessary in order to allow us to comply with a legal obligation. An example of this would be where we are required to retain business records for fixed periods of time in order to comply with local legal requirements.
– Consent. Finally, in certain limited situations, we rely on your consent in order to process your Personal Data. Where we require your consent in order to collect and process certain Personal Data, we seek your consent at the time of provision, and such processing will only be performed where consent is secured.
