PURPOSES OF PROCESSING
Any Personal Information submitted to us, together with any other information, material or content you have provided (collectively hereinafter referred to as, "Data") shall be used primarily for administrative purposes and for the purposes to which they were submitted or required.
Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you/controller In order to carry out our obligations under that contract with controller or yourself, we must process the information given to us under the guidelines issued by you/controller. Some of this information may be personal information. Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to collection of opinion/polls/suggestion. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable. We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us/controller ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
Information we process with your consent Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or access our survey sites, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information. Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information. Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information. We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists. You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us [email protected]
Information we process because of legitimate interest 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).
