4. Legitimate Interests
Under the General Data Protection Regulation which came into effect in May 2018, there are a number of reasons why it is lawful for us to use your information. One of these is if we have a genuine and legitimate reason to do so, as long as by doing so we are not harming any of your rights or interests. This is known as a Legitimate Interest, and more information can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website, here. In practical terms, this means that before we use your information (3, above), we will carefully balance our right to use your information with any potential impact on you and your rights. Therefore, if we are communicating with you, it is because we have assessed your likely interest in Datactics, our company, products and services, and established that it is reasonable for us to be in contact with you. We will always provide you with the opportunity to let us know if this is no longer the case, through a link to our opt-out form here or by contacting us at the details at the top of this page.
