Why we can process your data

The law says we must have one of these reasons:

  • To fulfill a contract we have with you
  • When it is our legal duty
  • When it is in our legitimate interest
  • When you consent to it

Where there is a contract in place we will need your data in order to provide you with the service e.g. contact you to make arrangements, attend a venue etc. 

Where you consent to us using your data, e.g. direct marketing by email, you can withdraw your consent at any time and we will stop using processing your data. If you wish to do that, email us at contact@foiresearch.info

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. Our legitimate interests are:

  • Keeping our records up to date, working out which of our products and services may interest you and telling you about them. 
  • Developing products and services, and what we charge for them.
  • Defining types of customers for new products or services
