  1. Legal Basis for Personal Information Usage

Under the GDPR, there are six legitimate bases for processing personal data. The below is a brief explanation of each one of them. We would act as the data “Controllers” as we are the party in control of any decisions on how the personal data will be used, and for which purposes. You, or the owner of the personal data, will be referred to as “data subject”.

To process any personal data, we will adhere to a legitimate basis such as:

  1. Consent: The data subject has given clear and explicit consent for processing their personal data for a specific purpose. Consent should be freely given, informed, and unambiguous, with an easy option to withdraw at any time. Should we ever need to record your consent for a specific purpose outside of our contractual duties or legitimate interests, this will be done following the appropriate steps prescribed by the GDPR.
  2. Contract: Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or for taking pre-contractual steps at the request of the data subject before entering into a contract. This will be the legal basis that we adhere to for most of the data processing we carry out.
  3. Legal obligation: Processing is required to comply with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject. This refers to the obligations that are set out in the EU or member state law.
  4. Vital interests: Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This basis is generally applicable in life-or-death situations, such as medical emergencies. Technov8 is unlikely to ever use this as legal basis for processing, however we outline it for a better understanding of the GDPR principles.
  5. Public interest: Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. This basis usually applies to public authorities or organizations that perform tasks on behalf of public authorities. Technov8 is unlikely to ever use this as legal basis for processing, however we outline it for a better understanding of the GDPR principles.
  6. Legitimate interests: Processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by the data controller or a third party, as long as the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override those interests. As the Controller, we must carefully balance their interests against the data subject’s rights, ensuring transparency and providing the option to object to the processing. Technov8’s legitimate interests will commonly include marketing, the facilitation of mutually beneficial business relationships, and business analytics purposes.
