6. Processing your data using our Legitimate Interests

We have a number of lawful reasons that we can use (or ‘process’) your personal data. One of these lawful reasons is called ‘legitimate interests’.

Broadly speaking legitimate interests means that we can process your personal information if:

  • We have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests.

The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach during our normal course of business:

6.1. To improve and enhance our services: When we do process your data, we will use it to benefit you and to make your experience better and to improve our products and services.

6.2. Your best interest: Processing your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website or through our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.

6.3. Personalisation: Where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our customers.

6.4. Analytics: To process your personal data for the purposes of customer analysis, assessment, profiling and direct marketing, on a personalised or aggregated basis, to help us with our services and to provide you with the most relevant information as long as this does not harm any of your rights and interests.

6.5. Research: To determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising and to develop our products, services, systems and relationships with you.

6.6. Due Diligence: We may need to conduct investigations on existing customers, potential customers and business partners to determine if those companies and individuals have been involved or convicted of offences such as fraud, bribery and corruption.

6.7. Direct Marketing: We may send postal marketing. We will also make sure our postal marketing is relevant for you and tailored to your interests. You also have the right to opt-out of receiving this information at anytime.

6.8. When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

Sharing your personal data

7. Third Parties

The only time we share your information with third parties is where it is necessary to fulfil your service we provide.

7.1. We may share your data with our consultants in order to better deliver our services to you or we will give your details to the practitioner visiting your company or giving your treatment.
