Affiliates’ consent

The legal basis on which St Clare Media relies for processing affiliates’ data will be at least one of the following:

Affiliates have provided their consent for St Clare Media to use their data in a certain way.
It is necessary for St Clare Media to store and process affiliates’ data to comply with a legal obligation to which St Clare Media is subject.
It is in St Clare Media’s legitimate interests to process affiliates’ data, e.g. in order to administer Affiliates’ membership, process donations and administer the charity, provided this is not unwarranted by reason of prejudice to them. (St Clare Media’s legitimate interest in such cases is to raise funds in pursuance of its charitable purposes. When St Clare Media processes personal information for its legitimate interests, St Clare Media makes sure that it considers and balances any potential impact on affiliates, both positive and negative, and their rights under data protection laws. St Clare Media will not use affiliates’ personal data for activities where its interests are overridden by the impact on them, unless St Clare Media has their consent or is otherwise required or permitted to by law.)
