The GDPR states,
1. ‘The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes may be regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest.’
This may be where consent is not viable or not preferred, though the Data Protection Network rightly stresses the fact that organisations will still need to show that there is a balance of interests
– their own and those of the person receiving the marketing.
Of course, any individual can object to direct marketing and it is one of the examples of legitimate interests for which objection is already fairly well understood and easy to action (often by unsubscribe link or by contacting the company in question to request).
2. Relevant and appropriate relationship
This may be a direct appropriate relationship, such as where the individual is a client.
3. Reasonable expectations
We will always aim to provide a clear method for you to opt out. You can unsubscribe or opt out of being kept up to date about our product information as well as industry updates at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in email correspondence. You can also contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to tell us not to send you any future marketing material.
Your rights include the following as per Articles 15-21 of the GDPR Guidelines:
Right of access - you have the right to request a copy of the
information that we hold about you
Right of rectification – you have the right to correct any
inaccurate personal data
Right to erasure – you have the “right to be forgotten” which
allows for the right of the removal of data
Right to restriction of processing – you have the right to
restrict processing of personal data
Right of portability – you have the right to request the porting
of your data to a new service provider

How do we protect visitor information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information you provide to us is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. Where we have given you a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via secure technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.
All payment transactions are handled by our reputable payment service provider. We do not store your credit or debit card details.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We will keep your account details for as long as you remain a customer with us and thereafter to comply with legal reasons e.g. Revenues legal requirements. After 7 years of completion of contract we will delete your personal information.
