The legal basis on which we collect your personal information
David Lyle Foundation collects and processes your personal information on the basis of four different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the personal data being provided and the type of processing involved. More information is provided on this here.
Performance of a contract. Most of the personal data processed by David Lyle Foundation is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement 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 you purchase a ticket to one of our events or purchase a subscription.
Legitimate interest. A second ground relied upon by David Lyle Foundation for other types of processing of your personal data is that it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by David Lyle Foundation. Such legitimate interests will include where we send you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will process your data in a business context or where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention. An example of this would be where you register for one of our drama conferences and we send you our drama newsletter. We will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.
Compliance with a legal obligation. A third ground relied upon for certain types of processing is that it is necessary in order to allow David Lyle Foundation to comply with a legal obligation. An example of this would be where we are required to retain business records for fixed periods of time in order to comply with local legal requirements.
Consent. Finally, in certain situations, David Lyle Foundation relies on your consent in order to process your personal data. Where we require your 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 to securely store your credit card details when purchasing from our shop.
