Why do we collect and process personal data?

We primarily process personal data in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to you and to provide you with goods, services, support and relevant information in an effective manner.

With your consent we may also use your personal data to communicate urgent notifications and provide marketing information on products, services and pricing.  Where we ask for your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw such consent as described in this privacy notice. Please note, however, we may be unable to provide you certain services that require the use of personal data.

Please note that even where your consent would otherwise be required, we may nevertheless process your personal data in accordance with our legitimate interests under applicable law.

Our legal basis for collecting personal data

Collecting personal data based on contracts

We use personal information for fulfilling our obligations related to contracts and agreements with customers, partners and suppliers.

Collecting personal data based on legitimate interest

We may use personal data if it is considered to be of legitimate interest, and if the privacy interests of the data subjects do not override this interest. A legitimate interest will only be established as a legal basis where a clear mutual interest between Contender UK and the individual person has been identified. This legal basis is primarily related to our sales and marketing purposes.

Collecting personal data based on consents

The collection of personal data based on consent from the data subject will be done by using “Consent Forms” that will store documentation related to the consent given by the individual. Individual consents will always be stored and documented in our systems. This consent can be withdrawn at any time.
