LEGAL BASIS FOR OUR USE (EEA Visitors Only)
If you are in the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, where we have a legal obligation to do so or where the processing is in our legitimate interests( such as processing for administrative purposes, preventing fraud or criminals acts and in support of information security) and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the time of collection. We will also tell you whether the requirement for that information is mandatory and explain any consequences to you if you do not provide the information.
Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information based on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will take reasonable steps to provide clear notice and describe our legitimate interests.
