Six Lawful Basis for Processing Personal Data

Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) there are six lawful basis for processing personal data. These are detailed as follows:

  • Contract
    The processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract
  • Consent
    The individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific purpose
  • Legal Obligation
    The processing is necessary for you to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations)
  • Vital Interests
    The processing is necessary to protect someone’s life
  • Public Task
    The processing is necessary for you to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law
  • Legitimate Interest
    The processing is necessary for your legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. (This cannot apply if you are a public authority processing data to perform your official tasks.)

The information relating to the six lawful basis for processing personal data is taken from the ICO website and the GDPR regulation documentation. Further information regarding the lawful basis for processing personal data can be found at ico.org.uk

Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA)

We rely on these six grounds as the lawful basis on which we collect and use your personal data. Our legitimate interests are set out below.

The rights and freedoms of the data subjects would not be overridden in our processing of the personal data and that in no way would a data subject be caused harm by the Enercon processing. Based upon our segmentation by organisation and by specific job function, coupled with our processing of personal data within the context of a business environment, it is deemed that any processing of data will be limited to business matters, and therefore any risk of personal compromise is extremely unlikely. It is also deemed that direct marketing and sales is necessary in the context of following up with website contact requests, telephone enquiries and trade-show enquiries to better serve enquirers and to generate business sales.

Per the ICO guidance, Enercon can confirm:

  • We have checked that legitimate interests is the most appropriate basis
  • We understand our responsibility to protect the individual’s interests
  • We have identified the relevant legitimate interests
  • We have checked that the processing is necessary and there is no less intrusive way to achieve the same result
  • We have done a balancing test, and are confident that the individual’s interests do not override those legitimate interests
  • We only use individuals’ data in ways they would reasonably expect We are not using people’s data in ways they would find intrusive or which could cause them harm
  • We do not process the data of children
  • We have considered safeguards to reduce the impact where possible
  • We will always ensure there is an opt-out / ability to object
  • Our LIA did not identify a significant privacy impact, and therefore we do not require a DPIA
  • We keep our LIA under review every six months, and will repeat it if circumstances change We include information about our legitimate interests in our privacy notice

Enercon procures this personal data in the following ways:

  • Primary research – Enercon’s marketing team based in the UK gathers data relating to key decision makers at organisations from publicly available sources including the website of each business.
  • Secondary research – Enercon’s marketing team based in the UK use existing publicly available sources to gather the information relating to key decision makers including the Directors’ Register at Companies House, Dun & Bradstreet, Duedil and LinkedIn.
