How the law protects you and the legal basis for processing your information

We also process personal information where it is necessary for the performance of a contract (e.g. lease, licence, service and maintenance contract).

We have legal grounds to process special category data where it is necessary for reasons in the substantial public interest. This will include where it is necessary to carry out any of our statutory functions. The statutory functions are as set out above.

Additionally, and where appropriate, we may seek specific consent to use your information in certain ways. This will normally be where the use of the data is not necessary for the above purposes but may be useful or helpful. For example, giving feedback, receiving marketing information and using any photographs or videos for publicity purposes. You will be given a free and genuine choice to agree to or refuse this processing of your information without affecting your involvement in any activities.
