“Legitimate interests” means the interests of PAGB in running the organisation and the promotion of our objects, for example, in order to administer membership, run events and administer the organisation. It can also apply to processing that is in your interests, for example in cases where you have requested information or certain goods or services from us.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. 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).
We do not share, sell or rent your information to third parties for marketing purposes. We will not otherwise disclose your personal information unless required to do so by a regulatory agency or law.
We may allow our staff, consultants and/or external providers acting on our behalf to access and use your information for the purposes for which you have provided to us (e.g. to deliver mailings, to analyse data and to process payments). We only provide them with the information they need to deliver the relevant service, and we make sure your information is treated with the same level of care as if we were handling it directly.
We aim to ensure that there are appropriate physical, technical and managerial controls in place to protect your personal details.
