Legal Basis to Process Your Personal Data
Under the May 2018 EU General Data Protection Regulation we need a lawful basis to collect and use your personal data. The law allows for six lawful bases to process people’s personal data, and one of them allows personal data to be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate interest of the organisation – as long as it is fair and balanced and does not unduly impact the rights of individuals.
We have assessed our business interests in carrying out communications activities and we have carefully considered the impact the collection and use of personal data could potentially have on individuals’ rights. Our databasescontain business data, which is used to promote businesses worldwide and such activities are unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals concerned. We have, therefore, concluded that the most appropriate lawful ground for the processing of your personal data is our “legitimate interest”.
Should you request a proposal or enter into a contract with BrandComms, then the grounds to process your personal data would be under the lawful basis of “contract”.
Occasionally we may send you email communications to provide you with information relating to deals and services that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these communications by simply clicking the link in the footer of the email. If you do not opt out by clicking the link, we may contact you by email or phone in relation to these deals and services but you are free at any point to opt out.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.

If you would like a copy of the information held on you, or believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete,please write to BrandComms You may also request that we do not process your personal data for direct marketing and in that case we will keep your contact details to ensure that no further contact is made.From May 2018, in certain circumstances, you may have the right to be forgotten (i.e. to have your personally identifiable data deleted).
