- Where the party is in our or a third party’s legitimate interests (and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms).
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process personal information from you, or may need the personal information to protect your vital interest or those of another person.
Where we rely on your consent to process the personal information, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time. Please note that this does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Our Services may contain links to other websites and the information practices and the content of such other websites are governed by the privacy statements of such other websites.
