For the Performance of a Contract

Most of the Personal Data processed by Winterhawk Consulting Ltd is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of an agreement or contract with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement. An example of this would be where Winterhawk Consulting Ltd responds to submitted enquiries about our services and agree to service contracts.

Under Legitimate Interest

Winterhawk Consulting Ltd relies upon legitimate interest for other types of processing of your Personal Data pursued by us. Legitimate interests will include where Winterhawk Consulting Ltd sends you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, or where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention.

For Compliance with a Legal Obligation

Winterhawk Consulting Ltd may have to rely on processing your information for legal obligations. An example includes where Winterhawk Consulting Ltd is required to retain business records for fixed periods of time, such as tax records, in order to comply with local legal requirements.

Using Consent

Where Winterhawk Consulting Ltd requires consent in order to collect and process certain Personal Data, we seek your consent at the time of provision, and such processing will only be performed where consent is secured. For example, your consent will be sought where you provide your contact details, or in certain instances where you initiate an enquiry with Winterhawk Consulting Ltd.
