‍The arguments sum up the widespread viewpoint regarding the potential uses of data. The exact stance, however, is that we may use your personal data for the following uses:

  • For the administration and evaluation of the employees, to ensure safe working practices.

This includes processing genetic and biometric data that can identify you and information about your health, sexual orientation, and data indicating your ethnic or racial origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, or membership in a labour union. Such information will never be processed without your express consent.

Together with the basic issues covered in previous sections, we might also need to send you updates regarding our products and services and information about significant developments about you, our products and services, or other connection issues that could interest or worry you.

Information about our products and services and changes to those products and services may be provided via mail, phone, email, or text message. We believe that processing your data for these reasons is necessary for us to further our legitimate business interests, and we do not need your permission to do so.

We occasionally conduct what are known as “legitimate interest assessments” to weigh your privacy rights against our interest in reaching out to you. When we think your consent is necessary, we will let you know and ask you directly for it.

However, occasionally, we could ask you to confirm your marketing preferences so that we can be certain they stay the same, particularly when it comes to matters like legal and regulatory revisions.

Data sharing with other parties:

Although we will not use your personal information for marketing, it might be necessary for us to share it with others to provide you with our products and services, fulfil our contractual obligations to you, meet legal or regulatory requirements, or fulfil any other contractual, legal, or regulatory obligations to which we are subject.

These professionals could be solicitors, printers, medical professionals, manufacturers, installers, experts, designers, delivery businesses, barristers, advisors, and accountants, among others, who are used in connection with the goods and services for which we are commissioned.

Third parties with whom we are interacting in this subject, such as financial service providers, banks, building societies, and registrars; government agencies and organisations of a similar nature, such as Land Registry, membership records, professional records, Companies House, customs, and revenue, and more;
