3.4 Legal justifications for the use of personal information
Use of personal information must be justified under one of a number of legal “grounds” and we are required to set out the grounds in respect of each use in this policy. An explanation of the scope of the grounds available can be found below. We note the grounds we use to justify each use of your information next to the use in paragraphs 3.1 to 3.3 above.
Consent: Where you have consented to our use of your information (you will have been presented with a consent form in relation to any such use)
Contract performance: Where your information is necessary to enter into or perform our contract with you.
Legal obligation: Where we need to use your information to comply with our legal obligations.
Legitimate interests: Where we have a legitimate interest in using your data and our reasons for using it and this is not outweighed by any adverse impact on your interests, fundamental rights, or freedoms.
Legal claims: Where your information is necessary for us to defend, prosecute, or make a claim against you or a third party.
