Purpose and basis for the use of your personal data
The judgment regarding the processing of your personal data will depend on the reason for your contact with us. The legal grounds we use to process your personal data are:
Signing and execution of a contract
The processing of your personal data is often necessary in connection with the signing and execution of a legal contract between us. For example, if you would like to advertise on our website or sponsor any of our content, then we will need your personal data so that we can enter a legal agreement.
In some cases, we will rely on your explicit consent to process your personal data. This legal basis is mostly used to send you marketing information, as well as when we are connecting you to one of our partners.
Email marketing. If you explicitly provide your consent along with your email address, we may contact you for marketing purposes via email.
When we process your personal data for our internal administrative purposes and when we need to take steps to protect our security, we rely on legitimate interest as the legal basis for processing your data.
Fulfilling legal obligations
When we process your personal data in fulfilment of our legal obligation.
Sharing your personal data
We may share your personal data with third parties in the following circumstances:
- When we work with third parties, who provide us with a service or process data on our behalf. This includes trusted partners who work with us to provide technical support and administrative and payment services. We require such third parties to comply with our guidelines and legal requirements for the protection of personal data. We enter into contracts and additional agreements regarding the processing of personal data with the data processors we work with and monitor their activities to ensure that they comply with our policies and procedures.
- When we have an obligation to disclose your personal data to comply with a legal obligation (for example, following a request from the police or another investigative body), or to exercise our rights or to protect the interests of James Meads Media & Consulting Ltd. (e.g., in case we have a reason to suspect fraudulent behaviour).
We will not share, sell, or exchange your personal data with third parties for the purposes of their own marketing or business needs unless you have given us your explicit consent to do so.
We do not transfer your data to countries outside the European Union.
How long do we keep your personal data?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including to comply with any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate period, we consider the volume, nature and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, whether we can achieve these objectives by other means, as well as the applicable legal requirements.
