The legal bases we rely on
The law on data protection provides several acceptable reasons why we can collect and process personal data. These include:
Contractual obligations – For example, when you engage Ask for Angela CIC to deliver a project, we will collect your name, email, phone number, address and any data specifically related to the project. We will keep these on file whilst we are doing work for you and may share these with our trusted third party associates, with whom we have robust data sharing agreements. If we have to post you contracts we may pass this information on to our couriers to ensure delivery of the contracts.
Legal compliance – For example, if we detect any fraudulent or other criminal activity, we can pass details of this on to the police.
Legitimate interests – In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.
