USING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
GDPR lawful bases we use for sales and marketing
Under the GDPR there are six lawful bases under which businesses can collect, use, and store personal data. Binary Carbon Ltd has identified three which we rely upon for our social mission: Contractual, Legitimate Interests and Consent.
In many circumstances Binary Carbon Ltd rely on the lawful basis of performing a contract. This enables us to respond to you when you express an interest in our activities and to fulfil any requests or works.
Some of our activities use our legitimate business and social mission interests to collect and use your personal data. In such cases, Binary Carbon Ltd has taken into consideration our commercial interests, societal mission-based benefits, and your interests. We do not believe our activities will have a negative impact on your privacy rights and freedoms. Binary Carbon Ltd also relies on Legitimate Interests to:
- Send you marketing communications about our mission
- Send you marketing communications related to other company’s mission that Binary Carbon Ltd work with which we believe are important to society
- Undertake business sales activities such as telemarketing
- Use publicly available contact details such as credit agency data
- Use social media data from our connections to contact you
- Use contact details gathered from exhibitions, conferences, and other networking events we attend
Sometimes Binary Carbon Ltd will rely on your consent, where you actively agree.
Removal from databases
Binary Carbon Ltd will always offer you the choice to withdraw your consent or stop receiving marketing communications.
- To the extent that we are required to do so by law
- In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings
- To establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk)
- To the purchaser or seller (or prospective purchaser or seller) of any business or asset which we are (or are contemplating) selling or purchasing
