Contract (Art 6(1) (b) GDPR) – We need to use your data to fulfil a contract you have with us. Alternatively, it’s necessary to use your data because we have asked you to, or you have taken yourself, specific steps before entering that contract.

Legal Obligation (Art 6(1) (c) GDPR) – We need to use you’re your data to comply with the law.

Vital Interests (Art 6(1) (d) GDPR) – Processing your data is necessary to protect your vital interests or of another person. For example, to prevent you from serious physical harm.

Public Task (Art 6(1) (e) GDPR) – Using your data is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, or because it is covered by a task set out in law, for example, for a statutory function.

Data sharing and international transfers

As explained throughout this Privacy Policy, we use various service providers to help us deliver our services and keep your data secure. When we use these service providers, it is necessary for us to share your personal data with them.

We have agreements in place with all our service providers that we share your data with that oblige them to protect your data.

Where your personal data is shared outside the EU, we ensure that your personal data is given an equivalent level of protection, either because the jurisdiction to which your data is transferred has an ‘adequate’ data protection standard according to the European Commission, or by using another safeguard such as an enhanced contractual agreement, i.e. Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission (SCCs).

For example, where we use US service providers, we either rely on SCCs or the EU-US Data Protection Framework, depending on the specific provider. You can request a copy of SCCs we have concluded with our service providers by sending an email to the email address provided in this Privacy Policy.
