We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to:

  • where we need to perform the service contract we have entered into with you

5.3 Other Legal Bases

There may be specific circumstances where EBS Ltd is required to rely on one or more of the other legal basis available under the regulations, although these circumstances are likely to be rare, in particular where we are legally required to do so or where disclosure would be in the public interest, in the interests of the data subject or other persons interest.
