  • where the Applicant is a natural person, the processing is necessary to comply with our respective contractual duties to you under the terms of our subscription agreement with you and all supplemental agreements thereto;
  • to comply with legal and regulatory requirements;
  • (on exceptional occasions) where we have obtained your consent; and
  • on very rare occasions, where it is needed in the public interest.

Some of the grounds for processing described above will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of personal data.
